Gov. Dapo Abiodun of Ogun on Thursday assured that he would neither slash workers’ salaries nor reverse the recently signed minimum wage in the state in spite of the harsh economic realities in the country.
Abiodun gave the assurance in Abeokuta during the breaking of the fast (Iftar) with the leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abeokuta.
The governor stated that his administration would continue to be creative in its bid to make the state economically viable and financially strong to be able to perform its responsibilities to the citizens.
“ I was watching on television where I saw one of my brother governors say that his state might have to reverse on the minimum wage.
“We are very creative on the issue of financing and I want to assure you that Ogun will not reverse on minimum wage,” he said.
The governor also assured that the local government polls scheduled to hold on July 24 across the state would be free and fair to all.
“The election will not be skewed in favour of the ruling APC.
