The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, has clearly stated that he never collected any form of salary throughout his eight years in office as governor of Osun state.
The former governor, who is now serving as Nigerian’s Minister of Interior Affairs, said this while dismissing reports published via online that he only received 96 months salary arrears in secret when he served as the executive governor of Osun state.
Meanwhile a statement from Aregbesola’s media aide, Sola Fasure, narrated the report as a fiction written by some elements bent on casting “aspersion on the integrity of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola”
According to him, “the report is a piece of fiction, it is a good example of false news and disreputable journalism. Let me state categorically again, that Ogbeni Aregbesola didn’t receive any salary during his eight years tenure as governor in Osun state.
He gave reasons stating that the government made provisions accomoddation, transportation, food, security and other conveniences for him and that would not need to pay for these from his pocket.
He further explained that all his children are grown up and have already graduated and he would not need to pay school fees anymore. He therefore donated all his salaries to the state government.
The author who gave the report claimed he got the information from some anonymous government officials. He provided no evidence to backup his claims.
The report fails basic journalistic ethical requirement that only truth and verifiable fact should be reported as news.
