At the weekend, Minister of Interior Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola dismissed reports that he secretly received 96-month salary arrears when he served as the Osun State governor, saying he got no salary for 8 years.
He described the report as purely fictional, written by elements bent on casting “aspersion on the integrity of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.”

According to the statement, the author of the report “falsely claims that the Minister of Interior and immediate past governor of the State of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, towards the end of the entire period he was governor, contrary to his asserting that he never did.”
The media aide said: “Let me state categorically again that Ogbeni Aregbesola did not receive any salary in the entire duration of his eight-year stint as governor in Osun.”
