Social Democratic Party ,SDP, Osun state chapter, has described as “unfortunate” the length at which the financial and economic situation in the state has degenerated under the watch of Governor Rauf Aregbesola.
Quoting the state chairman of the party, Chief Ademola Ishola, in a statement signed by the Director, Publicity and Strategy of the party, Mr. Taofik Alabi, the SDP chairman also accused many stakeholders in the affairs of the state of watching helplessly while the anomalies of this present administration continues.
Ademola said reacting to the situation in the state is very necessary at the moment, considering how its resources are being wasted and how the workers are being ill-treated.
The statement reads: “It is all lies and misinformation for anyone to claim workers in Osun are being paid half salary monthly. What they collect is far bellow half salary. Information at our disposal indicates that these workers only collect half salary once in three months.
“This means state workers above level ‘7’ in Osun will only have full salary of just two months out of one year. This is injustices and man’s inhumanity to man.”
Ishola further lamented administrative style of the present government, whom it accused of lavish spending on irrelevances, stressing that there was little or nothing to show as justification for the huge debt.
“This government will mark its 6th anniversary by November and it cannot point at any tangible project it has completed ever since it came on board. We only hear of federal allocations, monthly IGR in the state but what all these monies are being used for is not clear.
“Our billions of naira disappear at will. The road projects are all there suspended; the school project it initially claimed has been discovered to be combined efforts of both the federal and the state governments.
“So, where exactly is the project Aregbesola is doing that will justify the missing money of this state and that will point to what led this state into financial marsh? This state has totally collapsed through his high-handedness and mismanagement”.
The SDP boss however advised the labour union leaders in the state to distance selves from government activities so as not to become tools through which the government will be feeding the public with propaganda, especially when it comes to the issue of salary payments.
He added that labour union leaders all over the world are never government mouthpieces but workers’ warlords, who are put in the best corner to check the excesses of the government.
