The Osun State Government has denied rumours that it has implemented a new salary scale for the state’s civil servants.
The state government in a statement signed by the Governor’s Spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed on Monday described the information as false and misleading.
The statement also maintained that the information did not emanate from the state government.
The state government called on the workforce to discountenance the rumoured new salary scale but assured that it will unveil measures to cushion the effect of subsidy removal on civil servants and the larger public at the appropriate time.
It also described the purveyors of the news as the work of mischief makers trying to unnecessarily raise the expectations of workers and trigger disaffection.
According to the statement, “The attention of the Osun State Government has been drawn to a viral post on a new salary scale for civil servants in the state.
“The post is not only false but also misleading as every content in it does not emanate from the State Government.
“Since coming to office, Governor Ademola Adeleke has demonstrated commitment to the welfare of workers, and at the appropriate time, will unveil measures to cushion the effect of subsidy removal on civil servants and the larger public.
“The civil servants are assured of the commitment of Governor Ademola Adeleke to their welfare in line with the economic reality of the state.
