Osun NUT Refutes Salary Payment Rumour

Rauf-AregbesolaThe Chairman, Nigeria Union of Teachers in Osun State, Mr. Wakeel Amuda, has said teachers in the state had not been paid any of the outstanding salaries by the state government.

The NUT chairman stated this on Sunday in Osogbo, the state capital.

Rumours were rife at the weekend that civil servants, who have not been paid for over seven months in Osun, had started receiving bank alert for payment of three months salaries.

But Amuda described the rumour as a lie being peddled by some politicians to hoodwink members of the public that the state government had paid the workers.

He said, “It is all lies. We have not received any alert. Some politicians are behind the rumour. A politician told me that a civil servant had received salary alert around 12noon today (Sunday). I followed him to the person but there was no evidence that his salary has been paid. it is a lie”.
