Oyo Gov Lambasted for Taking Vacation


A picture of the governor of Oyo State, Sen. Abiola Ajimobi and his wife relaxing on a yacht, appeared on line recently and it’s received series of ‘bashing’.

The chiding came, particularly from those who think the Governor shouldn’t be engaged in such frivolities while civil servants of the state her oversees have not received their salaries for months.

One commentator on Facebook- Jide Nationa Infinity, wrote “'Koseleri' for a governor to owe backlog of salaries and go on expensive yachting when his workforce are hungry and angry.”

Recall that the President of the Federal Republic, Mr. Muhammadu Buhari had instructed governors of the 36 states to pay all outstanding salaries by December.
