I DID NOT COLLECT SALARY FOR EIGHT YEARS AS GOVERNOR

-Aregbesola

 

Aregbesola disclosed this during an interactive session tagged ‘Ogbeni Till Day Break’ on Saturday in Osogbo.

The governor said since it was the state that was feeding him, fueling his cars and provided him with accommodation, there was no need for him to be paid.

He said, “I have not collected salaries since I became the governor of the state.

“The state feeds me, fuels my car and provided me accommodation. With all these, I don’t need money.

“I have no money and bank account anywhere.

“Anyone can go out there to investigate if I have bank accounts.”

Aregbesola, who will be handing over to the governor-elect, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola on November 27 said he would vacate the government house by Monday, November 19.

He said that the decision to leave the government house earlier was to give his successor enough time to do necessary renovations.

When asked what his regrets were as a governor in the last eight years, he said he had none.

He said, ”If you give me another four years to rule again, I will still do what I did before and I will not do anything differently.”

l had been in politics since my secondary school days. I have been an absentee husband for many years because of politics but for now, I want to be with my wife,” Aregbesola said.

On his achievements, the governor said he was happy that his social investment programmes supported and transformed the lives of the people in the state.
