According to the governor, no reasonable person or government will be happy not performing its required responsibility.
The governor said â€œwe are not happy paying modulated salary to our workers in the civil service and political appointees. We are compelled by financial reality.
â€œContrary to the lies around, it is not all our workers that receive half salary.
â€œWorkers on levels 1-7, being the most vulnerable and the largest chunk of the workforce are being paid full salary.
â€œWorkers on levels 8-10 receive 75 per cent of their salary, while levels 12 upward collect 50 per cent of their salary.
â€œThe workers have shown maturity, support and understanding. We acknowledge and appreciate the sacrifices and support of the workers.â€
Aregbesola, however, said the financial burden on the government was incurred to provide infrastructure and develop the state.
