AT LAST! Osun State Governor begins payment of civil servants

According to, Osun State governor, Rauf Aregbesola has begun the part payment of salary arrears it owes civil servants in the state. Local Government Workers in the State have started to collect their March and April 2015 salaries.The alerts for the payment started coming in on Friday June 26, 2015 afternoon. It was also gathered that workers in others categories in the state would get their payment next week starting from Monday June 29, 2015 as promised by Governor Rauf Aregbesola.

Sources in the state revealed that labour unions rejected the option by the government to pay them two to three months and return to their duties posts, with the insistence that workers would not collect anything less than five months salaries before calling off the ongoing strike in the state. The State government however made it clear that there was no way it could raise five months salaries at once presently, and that payment had to be gradual.
