He is workers’ friendly governor and he truly loves the people of the state”, he stated with good sense of confirmation.
He chides mischievous politicians who were trying to mislead the public that salary payment is ought not to be mentioned as part of government achievements.
Onagun observed that the said set of politicians were only trying to cover up their past maltreatment of workers in the state, saying that a responsible government should know that salary payment is most important to lives of workers.
He noted, ” any government that prioritizes payment of salary to workers as at when due, deserved commendation and worthy to be confirmed as friend of the people.
” In the other hand, any government that pays leap service or does not take the payment of salary to workers on regular basis, is not fit to govern and such people should be outrightly rejected.
” The people who thinks that the welfare of workers doesn’t matter, must not be allowed to govern the state again. Because kwara people deserved better life”.
