The Osun state government has debunked the rumour making the rounds by suspected members of the opposition party that the state government is planning to return to the payment of modulated salaries to its workers.
The government while describing the rumour as baseless and misleading alleged that some members of the opposition party fabricated the lies so as to incite the civil servants against the administration of Governor Gboyega Oyetola on payment of salary.
The state government in a statement issued by the Supervisor, Ministry of Information and Strategy, Hon Adelani Baderinwa, and made available to CityMirrorNews in Osogbo, on Saturday said the present administration has never at any time consider return back to the modulated salary regime, instead government is determined to make life better for all civil servants in the state.
The statement reads in part ;
It has come to the notice of the state government of Osun the recent fruitless effort by the busybody individuals and jobless members of the opposition party to incite the civil servants against the administration of Governor Gboyega Oyetola on payment of salary.
The government is not unaware of the rumour being spread by the lazy opposition members on the false and imaginary return of modulated salary payment to the workers of the state.
The rumoured return of modulated salary remains a rumour and there is no iota of truth in it.
Governor Gboyega Oyetola had during the presentation of 2019 budget declared that the era of modulated salary payment is gone, and we are happy to reaffirm that the Governor is still more committed to his statement of striving to pay full salary to civil servants.
We would also like to state that Governor Oyetola would not in anyway take any arbitrary decision on matter affecting the civil servants. It is noteworthy to remind the general public that the Governor, who was a former Chief of Staff had successfully managed the labour unions and as a result, Osun recorded smooth and friendly government-workers relationship.
If any decision is going to be taken on welfare of the workers, it is going to be a joint decision where all the labour leaders will be carried along and would be given the opportunity to take the best decision for their members, as we witnessed in the past administration.
We will like to state that the rumour which is being carried around by the indolent members of the opposition who have lost relevance with the disgraceful defeat they suffered in the governorship and last general elections in the state, is far from the truth.
What the laid-back opposition members want is to heat up the polity and incite the civil servant against the government. The rumoured return of modulated salary is another pointer to the fact the opposition members never meant well for the workers and the state specifically.
The government wishes to state that the administration of Gboyega Oyetola is very much committed to their welfare and the general wellbeing of the people of the state.
The civil servants and general public at large are enjoined to dismiss the rumour as there is no iota of truth in it.
