Two civil servants in the Osun State Broadcasting Corporation (OSBC) have reportedly being suspended indefinitely for insulting the Governor of the state Rauf Aregbesola.
According to Punch, the workers Kunle Makanjuola and Gbadebo Adepoju had, while celebrating the victory of PDP’s Ademola Adeleke in the Osun State senatorial bye-election, hurled insults at the Governor.
This was done in a Whatsapp group called You and I.
Some persons in the group reported Makanjuola, who is a level 12 officer at the OSBC Ventures, and Adepoju, a deputy director at the corporation’s marketing department, to management, who promptly suspended them.
Adepoju was reported to have said:
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.
The Commissioner for Information Adelani Baderinwa said the suspension was an internal issue in the commission, and has nothing to do with the state government.
