Lawmakers in the state and national assembly from Osun State have resolved to organize stakeholders’ conference where the delay in payment of workers’ salaries and pensioners and other issues on the growth and development of the state would be discussed.

Addressing newsmen at the weekend, lawmakers under the aiges of Omoluabi Caucus in the state and national assembly said that the conference which will hold on Monday, August 10, 2015, was to salvage the state government from the present predicament.

Tagged, “Osun Stakeholders’ Conference – Our State, Our Stake”, spokespersons of the forum, Ayo Omidiran, Ajibola Famurewa and Gafar Amere, said that the conference was for present and past leaders, including religion leaders, community leaders, labour movement, artisans, market men and women, non-governmental organisations among others.

They argued that the aim of the conference was to deliberate on how to liberate the state from the present situation.

According to the legislators, “the state of Osun is in dire straits. It is true that our state is going through hard times. Workers and Pensioners are owed many months’ salary and infrastructural development projects have come to a halt.

“The conference is to serve as an avenue to deliberate on the state of our state, interact with all stakeholders including but not limited to all past governors and their deputies, technocrats and artisans, labour unions and non-governmental organisations, traditional rulers and market women.”
