The Ondo state chapter of the Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA) has urged Governor Rotimi Akeredolu not to play politics with workers’ salaries and emoluments.
The state government had used part of the Paris Club debt refund to pay 80 percent of September 2016 salary arrears with a promise to pay the 20 percent left later.
The party made this known through its state chairman, Banji Akinkuowo.
Speaking on the issue, APDA state chairman, Banji Akinkuowo said the party was worried over the controversial payment of 80 per cent of the September 2016 salary arrears by the state government.
He said, ”When you pay salaries, it will energise the economy of the state and people will be able to pay their children’s school fees, electricity bills and many other things.
”And when you don’t pay salaries, it will strangulate everybody including the workforce and non-workers.
”The state government must pay the September 2016 salary arrears in full as long as it received the Paris Club money from Abuja added to the internally generated revenue of the state.
”Ondo people need to be happy because if they are happy it will be easy for the government to govern well and if they are not happy it will not be easy as well.”
