Oyo: My Administration Will Never Pay Workers Peanuts Like Seyi Makinde—Teslim Folarin

In a recent news report, it was said that the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Oyo State, Teslim Folarin, has denied plans to sack some civil servants employed under the administrations of the current Governor, Seyi Makinde, and his predecessor, Abiola Ajimobi, if elected in the governorship polls on Saturday, March 11.

It was also gathered according to reports that Teslim Folarin disclosed this during a meeting with some public servants in Ibadan on Monday, adding that he had no plans to sack civil servants in his administration but to look for more ways to alleviate their suffering.

According to one of his statements, Teslim Folarin said, “I was a civil servant in the UK for almost 20 years before I ventured into politics; likewise, my running mate Taiwo Okunlola was once also a civil servant, and we have had so many experiences and we know how it feels to be a civil servant.”

“We know all the pains embedded in working for the government with rigorous efforts; therefore, our administration, if elected, will rather seek for the convenience of Oyo State workers rather than persecuting them,” he said.

While speaking further, he also said, “Oyo State has numerous sources of income, but it's quite disheartening that the governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, has channeled most funds into his personal pocket for selfish use. Instead of seeking the welfare of workers, he keeps on looking for means to weed out some of them.”

“My administration, if elected, will never pay workers peanuts like Seyi Makinde." "There will be a salary review, and we will value the welfare of workers because they are the pillar of a state,” he added.
