aregbesolaOsun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, in reaction to the lingering crisis of unpaid workers’ salaries, has said that the economic situation in the country led to his administration’s inability to pay.

Governor Aregbesola made this disclosure while speaking to State House Correspondents after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari behind closed-doors at the Defence House in Abuja.

The governor likened himself to the head of a family who cannot meet the needs of his family members and said, it is disheartening to him that the Osun State of November 2010 when he assumed office is different from the Osun of today.

Aregbesola also said that people must give credit to the changes that his administration had brought about in the state.

He added that changes were not miracles but were occasioned by the application of resources, saying it was the unexpected and sharp decline in revenue.
