Osun State Governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola, has appealed to workers in the state to show some understanding over the payment of 50 per cent salaries.
The governor made this appeal to workers in a statement on his behalf by his media aide, Mr. Semiu Okanlawon.
The statement read, “The attention of the State Government of Osun has been drawn to a growing discontent among workers in the state on the partial payment of salary to workers from Grade Level 08 and above.
“The Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, wishes to appeal for calm and understanding from all workers in the state.
“The Government wishes to state that it realised the need to accommodate our senior citizens, the pensioners, within the limited funds available in order to ensure an all-inclusive payment that will alleviate the hardship that the delay in salaries and pensions had caused. It should be noted that happiness never decreases by being shared.
“We are committed to meeting our obligations to the workers as more funds become available to settle such. This period calls for deep understanding of our challenges and we appeal to all and sundry for cooperation in this regard.”
