Rauf Aregbesola, outgoing governor of Osun state, says he has not received salary since he assumed office as governor.
Aregbesola said this on “Ogbeni Till Day Break,” a monthly interactive programme he introduced after he was sworn into office.
Aregbesola said he had been prudent with the resources of the state.
“The state feeds me, fuels my car and covers my other expenses. This is why I see no reason to earn a salary. I have no house, save the one I built before I became governor of Osun,” he said.
“I have no bank account anywhere in the world. I have not earned a dime in salary since I became governor and I do not intend to so do.
“My greatest achievement has to be our social investment program. Our people now refer to themselves as Omoluabis. If properly internalised, 50 percent of our problems as a race would have been solved.
“As a matter of fact, we have not commissioned 10 percent of our projects. We will not be found commissioning hairdressing saloon and boreholes. We would only commission projects worthy of celebration.
Aregbesola who will handing over to the governor-elect, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola on Nov. 27, said he would vacate the government house by Monday, Nov. 17, said that the decision to leave the government house earlier is to give his successor enough time to do necessary renovations.
