The representative of Ayedaade/Irewole/Isokan federal
constituency in the House of Representatives, Mrs. Ayo
Omidiran, has said that the Osun State government will pay
its workers all outstanding salaries this month.
Speaking in a telephone interview with our correspondent on
Monday, Omidiran gave the assurance that all civil servants
in the employ of the state government would receive their
salaries before the Eid-el-Kabir festival.
Omidiran, whose group, Osun State Legislative Forum, had
called on Osun workers to be patient with the state
government over the unpaid salaries, said the salaries would
be paid after the ongoing staff audit in the civil service had
She said, “We, the Osun State Legislative Forum, have the
fullest assurance from Governor Rauf Aregbesola that our
workers will be paid all their salary arrears this month. The
money is ready. It is only the ongoing staff audit that is
delaying the payment.
“The staff evaluation has even made the government to weed
ghost workers out of the system. Our people should know that
this government will never forsake them. We are soon going
to put this salary issue behind us and together, we’ll march
on to continue to develop Osun.
“No government in the history of the state has developed
Osun as the Rauf Aregbesola administration has done.”
Various categories of workers are being owed salary arrears
ranging from seven, five and four months.
