Two workers of the Osun State Broadcasting Corporation have been suspended indefinitely for criticising Governor Rauf Aregbesola on a WhatsApp group, Punch reports.
OSBC staffs Kunle Makanjuola and Gbadebo Adepoju reportedly celebrated the victory of the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate in the Osun West Senatorial District by-election, Chief Ademola Adeleke on social media.
They were said to have also hurl abuses at the governor.
They were reportedly suspended indefinitely by the management of the Corporation.
Adepoju allegedly wrote, “Drama in Osun State as state government, under the leadership of Rauf Aregbesola, begins the payment of June salaries at exactly 1am on Osun West Senatorial by-election day.
“Local government and state civil servants from Osun West Senatorial District, please don’t be deceived by the alerts, the alert is your entitlement and not a gift. You worked for it, even though you deserve more. Don’t because you get your half salaries, unexpectedly behind the usual schedule, give your votes to the APC. They are full of deceit. Vote for liberation, vote Ademola Adeleke, vote PDP.”
Another worker was also said to have been queried for not disclosing her vote.
The source said, “The lawmaker reported her to the management and the management queried her but the issue has been resolved.
“The two other persons were suspended indefinitely for allegedly abusing the governor, on a WhatsApp group. Those, who are loyal to the governor showed the chats to the management and they were given indefinite suspension on Monday.”
