The Oyo State Government said it has yet to approve a new salary structure for workers in the state.
The declaration comes on the heels of a rumour that the state government has approved a new salary structure.
The government, however, debunked the rumour on Wednesday.
A statement signed by Sulaimon Olanrewaju, Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde, reads: “Although the government is working on reviewing the current salary structure, the committee set up for that purpose has yet to turn in its report.
“Therefore, the salary structure being circulated could not have emanated from the state government. It should thus be disregarded in its entirety.
“The committee was given eight weeks to report back to the state government. The state government is still considering further ways of easing the burdens.”
