Rauf Aregbesola has said he was not pleased with paying half salaries to civil servants and political appointees in the state.
Aregbesola was quoted as saying “economic downturn induced by brazen corruption, wanton theft of crude oil and mismanagement of the country’s resources by the last administration forced the state to what it was witnessing today.’’
He added that “we are not happy paying modulated salary to our workers in the civil service and political appointees. We are compelled by financial reality.”
“Contrary to the lies around , it is not all our workers that receive half salary.
“Workers on levels 1-7, being the most vulnerable and the largest chunk of the workforce are being paid full salary.
“Workers on levels 8-10 receive 75 per cent of their salary, while levels 12 upward collect 50 per cent of their salary.
“The workers have shown maturity, support and understanding. We acknowledge and appreciate the sacrifices and support of the workers.”
