CURRENT AFFAIRS: Governor Aregbesola pays workers December salary

The Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress in Osun State, Mr. Jacob Adekomi, said on Tuesday, that Governor Rauf Aregbesola has approved the payment of December, 2014 salary for workers in the state. Adekomi, who said this at a press conference he addressed after a meeting with the government delegation led by Chief of Staff, Mr. Gboyega Oyetola, added that the governor also approved the payment of the 30 per cent balance of November salaries of some workers who were yet to be paid in full.
The NLC boss, however, said workers would not suspend their strike despite the payment of their one month salary out of seven months.
The Head of Service, Mr. Sunday Owoeye, also confirmed that workers had started receiving alerts for balance of November and December 2014 salaries.
He said this in response to an inquiry earlier sent to him by our corespondent through text message.
Owoeye’s text read, ” They are already receiving alerts for balance of November, and part of December, 2014. A journey of 1000km starts with one step. The man who removes a mountain starts by carrying stones away.”
But Adekomi explained that most workers would not get anything from the one month salary paid because their banks would use the meager money for loan repayment and interest.
According to Adekomi, most workers will not have anything left to feed themselves let alone transport themselves to their places of work and because of this, he stressed that the strike would continue.
The NLC chairman said, ” We appreciate the efforts of the government to see that salary and pension arrears are settled without further delay . Our negation with government is that out of eight months owed us, the minimum we can take is give months to resume work.
