UNPAID SALARIES: FG should take over governance in Osun, Benue — LP scribe

By Dapo Akinrefon

THE National Secretary of the Labour Party, LP, Dr Kayode Ajulo has urged the Federal Government to take over administrations in Osun and Benue States following the inability of the states to pay workers salaries.

In a statement, Ajulo argued that the Federal Government should not shy away from taking over the administration of those two states immediately noting that the actions of the governors contravened Sections 128 and 129 of the 1999 constitution.

He said “The situation is very unfortunate, it is inexplicable and I am more particular in what’s happening in Osun State. Imagine owing workers up to eight months salaries and going to nine months while some are owed 12 months pension.”

Ajulo, who is also the Founder/Chairman, Egalitarian Mission for Africa, said “This is worrisome, the situation is worse than Boko Haram insurgency and I won’t hesitate to say that the situation in Osun and Benue States call for declaration of state of emergency.”
