The Governor of Oyo State, Sen Abiola Ajimobi,

effect.

“The slash in salary is for all political
appointees starting from the Governor, Deputy Governor, Commissioners, Special

This will also include slash in government expense profile, and compensation of
political appointees.”  he said

not be excluded from the slash expressed hope that the restructuring exercise
and effort of the state government to block all loopholes would impact
positively on the state Internally Generated Revenue.

intention of replicating same across all senatorial districts in the state, to
guarantee food security for citizenry.

anomalies while maintaining cordial relationship with the state labour union.
