An Osun State based Civil Society Organization (CSO), the Civil Societies Coalition for the Emancipation of Osun State (CSCEOS) has cautioned the State governor, Mr. Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola to stop misleading the general public over the payment of half salaries and
pension to the workers and retirees alike in the State, declaring that the state government is still owing the workers and retirees for period of six(6) months now.
The group insisted that Mr. Aregbesola led-state government was economical with the truth over its recent claim that he has been meeting its financial obligations despite the low income earning of the state.
The group stated that the state is heavily in debt and has been unable to meet its financial obligation to workers and retirees in the state for a period of six months, as a result of the irresponsible debt which Mr. Aregbesola plunged the State into presently.
Rising from the emergency meeting of the group in Osogbo, last Sunday to review the state of affairs in Osun State in the last one month, the CSCEOS, in a statement signed by its Chairman, Comrade Adeniyi, Alimi Sulaiman, condemned all the anti-worker policies of the Aregbesola led present administration in the state, regretting the emergency of Mr. Aregbesola as the State governor in the last five and half years.
The statement noted that since July 2015, Mr. Aregbesola has been paying the workers and retirees alike the half salaries and pensions due with discrepancies in the payment, also, alleging that some workers’ name have been removed from the salaries payment voucher on the directive of Aregbesola to his Financial Consultant firm popularly called ‘Charms.’
The CSCEOS therefore advised the good people, particularly, the entire workforce and retirees in the state to stand up and fight for their labour rights as stipulated in the labour law of the land,
