Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola has reiterated that his government is not immune to the pains of workers in the state resulting from the non-payment of salaries.
The governor made this statement while receiving the High Commissioner of the Commonwealth of Australia, Mr. Jonathan Richardson who paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House in Osogbo.
Aregbesola appealed to workers in the state to be calm as their period of hardship occasioned by the delay in the payment of salaries will be a thing of the past before the end of June.
He pointed out that, as the head of the state’s administration, he is with workers and that he feels their pain.
According to Aregbesola, “I want to appeal to workers in the state to be calm as their period of hardship caused by the delay in the payment of salaries will in a matter of weeks be a thing of the past.
“We are with them in their pains, we are not immune to any of their pains. I have not received any salary ever since I became the Governor of the state.
“I urge workers to take heart, in no distant time, at least, before the end of this month, we will all put this terrible experience behind us”.
