Osun State Governor, Mr. Ademola Adeleke, on Saturday, described as false insinuations that he was planning to demote workers and pay them half of their salary every month

The statement signed by the governor’s spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, said the current administration in the state has not and would not demote workers or introduce half salary

It read, “Osun State Government under Governor Ademola Adeleke has not and will not demote any worker

There is also no plan to introduce half salary

“Additionally, we declare that the content of the said story and all the references to a supposed worker are mere fabrications to undermine the very strong bond between Governor Adeleke and Osun workers, both in the formal and informal sectors

“The bond of partnership between this administration and the workers was further cemented at the May 1st workers day celebration where labour leaders praised the extraordinary commitment of Governor Adeleke to workers’ welfare

“The May Day event also saw confirmation by all stakeholders that Governor Adeleke was the first Governor in Osun state to have workers’ welfare as the first item on his governance agenda

“Members of the public and the labour movement also acknowledged that the present administration has been clearing the mess and the evil fallouts of years of maladministration by the APC in Osun state

“Part of that acclaimed step is the template adopted to clear years of half salary and pensions owed to Osun workers

” Meanwhile, the Osun All Progressives Congress spokesperson, Kola Olabisi, was yet to respond to the allegations as of the time of filing this report, even as a copy of the statement was sent to him
