Special Assistants to Ogun State who served under the administration of the immediate-past Governor of the State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, have written a letter to Governor Dapo Abiodun to off-set their outstanding severance allowances.

The former aides to the State government appealed to Abiodun in a letter dated Thursday, August 5, 2021, to consider the payment of their outstanding to encourage their dedicated services to the people of the state.

In the said letter which was jointly signed by Soyombo Opeyemi, Olusola Balogun and Lanre Adeagbo and made available to newsmen in Abeokuta, the State capital, the Special Assistants pleaded with him to pay them as the former State public office holders in the State.

The former governor’s aides lauded the governor for his giant strides in bringing development to the State hinting that Abiodun had displayed uncommon gesture to confirm his human kindness.

They divulged that many of them resigned from their jobs so as to serve the State. 

The letter reads, “We wish to place on record our appreciation of your giant strides since May 29, 2019. 

“In particular, we note the construction of the all-important Abeokuta-Sagamu Interchange road, among other massive construction projects going on across the state.”

“No one can ignore the fact that you not only retained the 2,000 workers employed by the previous administration but went ahead to pay them nine-month salaries, which pleasantly surpassed expectations of the citizens of Ogun State. The rare gesture confirms your human kindness.”

“We, the undersigned, representatives of Special Assistants to the Governor who served Ogun State Government between the years 2015 and 2019, earnestly appeal to Your Excellency to pay our Severance Allowance.”

“As the current helmsman, you would have taken cognizance of our plight during the four years of our faithful and selfless service. As we noted in our earlier letter on the subject matter, dated 6th June 2019, we humbly appeal to Your Excellency to kindly offset the severance in order to encourage sacrificial service to the good people of Ogun State by public office holders.”

“Once more, we pray for divine health and God’s guidance, as we wish you a successful tenure.” it added.
