OSOGBO—Civil servants in Osun State trooped out yesterday to protest alleged non-payment of five months salaries by the state government. The workers, led by the Chairman of the Trade Union Congress, TUC, in the state, Mr. Olatunji Akinyemi, marched through the Osogbo/Gbongan Road, chanting anti-government songs. The workers said apart from the failure of the Governor Rauf Aregbesola-led administration to pay them the outstanding salaries, the same government had refused to remit pension contributions, deducted from their previous salaries, to various retirement savings accounts. They claimed that the governor was busy spending the state’s resources on campaigns of the APC, and left workers to suffer untold hardship. The TUC chairman, who spoke in an interview, said workers who were due for promotion since 2013, had been denied their rights, adding that the government had not shown that the workers meant anything to his administration.
