Osun State governor Rauf Aregbesola dazzled his audience when he announced that he has never taken salary since he started serving as an executive governor of the state,
“When people complain about our financial state, I begin to wonder if they think I am spending people’s money.
“Some of you do not know that I have not received any salary since I became governor- of Osun state, why will I take that of others.
“How will I have commissioners when we have no money?.
“The minority leader of Osun state House of Assembly wrote a post on Facebook complaining that I have not paid them. We don’t have the money, even the minority leader does not have a car.”
Governor Aregbesola is entitled to several other perks, including constituency allowance of N4.44 million, hardship allowance N1.11 million, leave allowance N222, 370.00, and newspaper allowance N333,555.75.
