PDP insists - Aregbesola fixed bailout funds in banks

Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has accused Governor Rauf Aregbesola of withholding the bailout funds rather than using it to pay salaries.

Its spokesman, Prince Diran Odeyemi, in a statement said payment of salaries in parts by the state government was a further confirmation that the money had been fixed.

PDP noted that workers were paid half of their July salaries, with all allowances being hitherto enjoyed by them removed.

It added that retirees were also being treated in same manner, with many of them still being owed up to six months despite release of bailout funds to the state in August.

Reacting, consultant on information to the state government, Mr. Sunday Akere, debunked PDP’s claims.

He said: “PDP wants to use our reaction to gain relevance. I am sure they have a copy of the Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, the state government signed with the workers.

“The bailout covered up to June and we have paid June salaries, we have paid July and August.

“We signed an MoU with the workers and we have kept to the terms of the document religiously.”
