The Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Teachers in Osun State, Mr. Wakeel Amuda, has said teachers in the state had not been paid any of the outstanding salaries by the state government.
Amuda said this in a telephone interview with Punch Newspaper in Osogbo on Sunday.
There were rumour in the state during the weekend that workers had started receiving bank alert for payment of three months salaries.
But Amuda described the rumour as a lie being peddled by some politicians to hoodwink members of the public that the state government had paid the workers.
He said, ” It is all lies. We have not received any alert. Some politicians are behind the rumour. A politician told me that a civil servant had received salary alert around 12noon today ( Sunday). I followed him to the person but there was no evidence that his salary has been paid. it is a lie.
