Why I can’t pay workers salaries - Rauf Aregbesola

Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State says the drop in allocations to the state from the Federation Account is largely responsible for his inability to pay his state civil servants their salaries. Aregbesola said this after he received an award by the Voice of African Women for Human Dignity, an NGO at Abuja yesterday July 24th.
"I have found it hard to pay the wage bills owing to the declining federal allocation to the state. Federal allocation to the state has reduced by 40 per cent since 2013, thereby making it difficult for my government to meet its responsibilities,” he said.

Silly excuse....but your family can go on vacation abroad but u can't pay ur workers....

It's only in Nigeria that fools receive award for their stupidity. I guess the reduction in state allocation affected only Osun State. This silly APC goat of a governor should resign please.

Foolish and selfish government, we are in a federal system of government. So if your state can not argurment the dwindling federal allocations with internally generated revenue, then it will be better to merge it with other.

What about changing the headline to: "Why I resigned as a governor- Aregbesola". If you can't fucking pay salaries, resign. Stop shifting responsibility. In Nigeria, what it means to be a governor of a state is to receive allocations from federal and distribute. No thinking outside the box to internally generate wealth

Shocking news. Hoe can anyone give this chap an award? The chap should be impeached instead he gets an award!!!! Osun people wake up please.

It then means you had excess when you were given pupils free food and teaching aid. If it dropped by 40%,you should be able to pay,at least, every other month. If you had done that , I am sure the civil servants would have adjusted accordingly;assuming,you were a governor that could be trusted, which is very rare in Nigeria. I believe what a commentator said,sometime ago- you wasted the state funds on your re-election .

This man talk much about the declining federal allocation as his reason not pay workers salaries. If he can't find way of getting more IGR, let him step down....

Mihearty said...

I don't know why I detaste this man. So you want to tell me you have not been receiving your own salary. U are a very wicked man. All these you are blabbing is not the reason oga. You alone know why you are holding people's sweat and has refused to pay.

But u had money to support PMB's campaign, instead of complaining like a bit** how about u find ways for ur state to generate revenue and not depend on federal allocation.... if not d problem wld persist as it is obvious there's an economic crisis going on in this nation

APC piece of shit, continue depending on FG Allocation to pay civil servants salaries while u keep paying political appointees salaries n ur own. #UglierThanOsho

Goaldyn Boy said...

Ogbeni, resign nah if you can no longer perform your duty! I'm so sure the so called award that was given you was arranged or bought over by you! It's even laughable to hear that the award is for 'human dignity'! What sort of dignity is that when civil servants and pensioners are dying in Osun State due to unpaid salaries?!!!

Amaka Ngenegbo said...

So if FG doesn't give Osun any allocation for a year, the state will crash? So no internally generated revenue? Nah, I don't agree. This is incompetence. Besides, I want to believe he pays himself with all the bonuses attached.

Does Aregbesola remember that when he was campaigning for the election in 2007 he said fhat if he wins,he knows what to do and would not need federal allocation to run the state?

Simple Economics! Lower Income/ Allocation = lower Expenditures
Make him apply that doctrine. Shekena

Even after billions he collected for bail out. And they just shared money with d. FG this week. Incompetent man! After wasting the state fund on re-election campaign he's talking nonsense about reduced allocation.

When they finish wasting resources on election and expensive lifestyle they blame the Federal government.. Why should States in Nigeria still depend on government allocation to pay salaries..

you 'Voice of African Women for Human Dignity' or whatever you call yourselves..God will punish you and your executives for honoring a corrupt politician like Aregbesole with an Award. Do you know how many women and children have died b/c of unpaid salaries and his embezzlement. this award that you gave this man has been given to you in HELL. Pls Nigerian we need to wake-up and do something about these corrupt leaders. we shouldn't continue to wait for Buhari cos clearly he can't do anything even if he truly intend to. imagine those that accompanied him to America. Do Nigerians really believe that Buhari doesn't know how corrupt Ameachi, Tinubu, Okorocha & Oshiomole is? and many r so carried away cos he said he won't spare even does within his party. just lyk he promised he will clear those "cowards"(boko haram) in 2 weeks. Nigerians wake and pray fervently for ur country.

I mean no disrespect but this man looks like Alaye (agbero) I wonder how people voted for him to become a govno

Well said. God bless you. He is a terrible administrator of funds with wrong priorities. He has no excuse. Allocation didn't just drop drastically there was signs

This man is very wicked. People that work for your government are suffering, yet I have a feeling you have enough money in your offshore accounts to feed your generations to come. Mr. Governor change for your own good. Remember when children cry, God listens.

But the money was enough to buy u a Helicopter? The problem here is the so called Civil Society group that gave him the award! Playing to gallery! Dubious CS

Anonymous said...

Sir..Pls stop it! You know you used the money for your election! Besides, why are these governors so lazy and myopic. Haven't your learned your lesson????!! Start looking for ways to generate funds internally. Believe me, even single state in nigeria has the capacity to build an economy on it's own. Ugh!

For goodness sake, paying workers salaries should be ur number one priority. So what did u do with the available allocation from fgn. You are not worth to be a governor if you ask me.

arikeade said...

hmmmm.why him is receiving salary ooo. hmmmm our govt only loves themselves .

Anonymous said...

Well, i am not surprised.This simply tells you the kind of people we have as Gov. The only source of revenue they know is Federal "allocation". All their campaign promises are based on the allocations. No single initiative on how to generate "revenue" internally. I can see why our gov are wasteful - since the money are allocated not generated. No labor , no brainstorming. Only sharing formulae. I just hope Nigerian voters are getting wiser now.
