We Are Not Owing Any Staff, Osun LG Chair, Akinloye Dismisses Claims Of Resigned Four Staff



Chairman of Ede North Local Government, Osun State, Honorable Daud Akinloye has dismissed allegations of four staff working in his council who recently resigned over non-payment of 25 months salary arrears saying their claims are baseless.

Mr Akinloye made this known on Tuesday in his reaction made available to BlazeNewz over the allegations claimed by the four staff who have quited their appointment.

Reacting to the claims, the council boss said “What I know is that my local government didn’t owe any salary of it’s staff. If anyone is owed let him go to the finance department to find out why he was not paid.

“Assuming the allegations are correct, the Ministry of Local Government which supervises the activities of local government and that of Local Government service commission would have ordered investigation on the matter and give directive of what to do.”

He further explained that when the directive of the Ministry is neglected by the LG , the court is the other proper venue to compel the alleged non-payment of salary arrears.

He, however, frowned to the approach of the staff saying “Where they have any allegations that is deserving of any response, such should have been presented to the local government not on the social media.

Meanwhile the letter of resignation dated December 1st, 2020 addressed to Mr Akinloye by the four staff who identified themselves as Tunde Adeoye, Aminu Ghasali, Ibrahim Tiamiyu and Micheal Dipo, they appealed to the Chairman to pay their arrears which amount to the total sum of N1,264,000 noting that despite the unpaid salaries for 25 months, they served faithfully.

In the resignation letter they said “we were engaged on temporary appointment on 1″ April 2011, 1” January 2021, 14 October 2015 and 24 July 2015 respectively.

“We have been performing our duties diligently by providing adequate security for the properties of the Ede North Local Government, but to our dismay, the Authority of the Local Government has not been paying our stipend of N10,000 regularly” they said.
