Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun has denied reports that that his administration was planning to sack 10,000 workers.
In a statement issued in Osogbo by his media aide, Semiu Okanlawon, the governor said that “the so-called plan” to sack 10,000 workers is a figment of an imagination by the opposition party in the state.
It read:“The workers’ sack speculation was part of the opposition party calculated move to misinform workers, confuse them and demoralise them.
“Discerning and decent people have come to the conclusion that when opposition makes any allegation, you must quickly dismiss it as being in its character to fabricate falsehood to confuse unsuspecting masses.
“This latest falsehood is part of the opposition tactics to misinform workers, confuse them and demoralise them. Nowhere has the Aregbesola’s administration signified any intention to sack any worker”
