Osun workers decline Aregbesola’s demand for BVN

24 February 2016, 12:07

Osun - Civil servants in Osun State have rejected the demand for their Bank Verification Number(BVN) by the state government.

The state government had directed workers through a circular to submit the printout of their Bank Verification Number among others.

But in a statement by Osun State Joint Public Service Negotiating Council on Tuesday, the labour unions in the state said the demand for BVN had subjected workers to stressful conditions in their various banks.

The statement which was signed by Chairman of NLC, Jacob Adekomi and three others stated that the BVN was exclusive and personal to its owner and that the state government has no right to it.

The statement added that it was agreed that issues bordering on workers welfare especially salary related matter should be discussed with labour, adding that labour was in the dark on the purpose or reasons for the submission of the document.

The labour unions in the state demanded an urgent meeting with the state government over the matter and directed the workers to disregard the circular mandating them to provide their BVN until the issue is resolved with the state Government.
