Governor Aregbesola’s aide has debunked the allegations made by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Osun state.
The PDP accused the Governor, of planning to slash staff salaries.
In his response, Director General of Bureau of Communication in the Governor’s office, Mr. Semiu Okanlawon said “We are not surprised that the PDP is deliberately painting in bad light, all the well-thought out survival strategies of the current administration in the face of mounting global economic meltdown which is affecting all the facets of national life.”
He also said “Without any doubt, the growing popular opinion now is that governments at all levels must look inward, review their operations and streamline their activities if they want to continue to maintain the welfare of their people.”
“Interestingly, there is no single reform and belt-tightening measure that the governor and his officials have not laid bare on the table before the workers and other stakeholders,” Okanlawon said.
