The governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola has clearly shifted the blame on the inability of his government and that of other states to pay staff salaries on former President Goodluck Jonathan.

According to the governor, the plight of the workers in his state who are being owed salaries for the past eight months, is not his problem but the staff should rather hold GEJ responsible.

But analysts have seen his excuse as untenable, arguing that Osun, like other states, received funds and security votes from the federal government as well as their internally generated revenue.

Others cite the example of the governor buying an helicopter for his private use, wondering where he got the money from. Some people have even advised him to sell the chopper and use the funds to pay his workers, to save their lives.

The situation has got so bad that the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), advocated for churches to donate foodstuff to civil servants in the state to help them.
