You’re selfish, ungrateful, Akeredolu tells civil servants

AKURE—GOVERNOR Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, yesterday, described civil servants in the state as selfish and ungrateful in their agitation for payment of salary arrears and leave allowances. He was reacting to the ultimatum given to him by the workers that they would proceed on an industrial action if he failed to pay the backlog of salary arrears from the N20 billion Paris Club Refund.

No state has done better than us because we believe a worker deserves his pay. “90 percent of the revenue that comes to this state goes to less than 5 percent of the population who are civil servants. “We are up-to-date in the payment of salaries and pensions, all officers who are due for promotion have been duly served, the 2017 leave bonuses have been paid while some workers have equally enjoyed vehicles loans.” “The Paris Club refund due to Ondo State has been received and consultation with the leaders of the workers is ongoing on how best to balance the interest
