Governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola, made an uncommon revelation during an interview on TVC, which he confirmed via his Twitter handle.

According to Governor Rauf Aregbesola, he has not received any salary since he became Governor the state, because there is no justification for it since he enjoys free accommodation, free health care and transportation.

@ohimine1 had tweeted earlier:-

“Stumbled on #OgbeniTillDayBreak on @tvcnewsng. There’s really something about governance in Osun State However @raufaregbesola says he’s not received salary as a State Governor since inception. I want to believe I didn’t hear well. I need some assistance here What? I’m at loss!”

Reacting to the tweet, Governor Rauf Aregbesola wrote:-

“Dear AbdulRahman, You heard me correctly. I have not earned a dime in salary as Governor of Osun. I enjoy free accommodation, free transportation and free health care. What is the justification for earning a salary still?”

During the launch of Oodua FM in Ile-Ife in 2016, the Governor was also quoted saying;

“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”.

According to the pay package prepared by the Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission and which became effective 2009, a state governor earns a monthly salary of N2.2 million.

He is however 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.
