Government Replies Makinde - Stop Blackmailing Us Over LAUTECH, Osun State
The Osun State Government has reacted to allegations levelled against it by the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, that it is not willing to pay salaries of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) workers.
It accused Mr Makinde of playing ‘a greed(y) man’s script’, urging him to stop blackmailing Osun State.
The response was contained in a statement signed by Adelani Baderinwa, Supervisor of Ministry of Information on Friday.
Earlier today, PREMIUM TIMES reported how Mr Makinde said the Oyo government is ready to ‘divorce’ Osun over the non-payment of workers salaries in LAUTECH.
The institution is co-owned by the two states.
In its reaction, the Osun government accused Mr Makinde of playing a ‘greed man script’.
He also advised Mr Makinde to always take the “rational path before making any statement on LAUTECH matter.”
”Governor Seyi Makinde needs proper briefing and extensive readings on LAUTECH before he could make factual and objective remarks,” the statement noted. ”Presently, he obviously does not have sufficient facts or may be playing greed man script.”
