Adeleke dismisses viral post on new civil servants’ salary scale
Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has urged the state civil servants to ignore a viral post on an alleged new salary scale.
Adeleke said the information in the post is fake.
The Governor in a statement by his spokesperson Olawale Rasheed on Monday, stated that the viral information circulating on social media did not come from the state government.
Rasheed noted that the governor is committed to workers’ welfare and at the appropriate time, will unveil measures to cushion the effect of subsidy removal on the people of the state, including civil servants.
He also said the Governor is already working on palliatives measures and will soon be implementing them to support the populace.
The statement reads, “The attention of the Osun State Government has been drawn to a viral post on a new salary scale for civil servants in the state. The post is not only false but also misleading as every content in it does not emanate from the State Government.
“Since coming to office, Governor Ademola Adeleke has demonstrated commitment to the welfare of workers, and at the appropriate time, will unveil measures to cushion the effect of subsidy removal on civil servants and the larger public.
“It is therefore advised that civil servants discountenance the purported new salary structure being conveyed in the viral post. It is the work of mischief makers trying to unnecessarily arose the expectations of workers and trigger disaffection.
“The civil servants are assured of the commitment of Governor Ademola Adeleke to their welfare in line with the economic reality of the state.
“Civil servants and the general public should know that the Adeleke administration is already working on palliatives measures and will soon be put into effect to support them in this trying period.”
