Gov. Rauf Aregbesola of Osun on Monday denied speculations that that his administration was planning to sack 10,000 workers.
Aregbesola in a statement by his media aide, Semiu Okanlawon, said in Osogbo that “the so-called plan’’ to sack 10,000 workers is a figment of an imagination by the opposition party in the state.
According to the statement, nowhere has the Aregbesola administration signifies any intention to sack any worker.
“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.
