The Osun State Government has reacted to reports that it plans to sack workers or pay half salaries.
Rasheed dismissed such claims credited to a pressure group within the Nigeria Union of Pensioners.
He said: “We affirm that there is neither a plan to sack workers nor any re-introduction of payment of half salaries.
“This is fake news, which the public is implored to ignore.
“Governor Adeleke is available to meet all stakeholders for the development of the state.
“As a responsive leader, he has met with many groups and associations since assumption of office.

“Many of such groups, including the protesting pensioners, have also been scheduled for appointments with the governor.
“It is important to note that the government has remained committed to meeting its financial obligations to workers, both in and out of service.
“The government can, however, not pay off all outstanding salaries and pensions all at once due to paucity of funds, which is known to all stakeholders.
“The administration has adopted a phased payment system, but with an increase in the amount paid monthly to the pensioners, among others.”
