Spokesperson to the Osun State Governor, Mallam Olawale Rasheed has stated that the administration of Governor Ademola Adeleke is committed to fulfilling what he promised the people of Osun.
Rasheed made this disclosure while featuring on Channels TV ‘Politics Today’, which was monitored by our correspondent.
He said the administration of Ademola Adeleke will definitely deliver on his five (5) points agenda, and that the government is not in anyway distracted.
“I can tell you on my honour that the administration of Governor Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke is committed to fulfilling all he promised the good people of Osun.”
“The revelation made by his Excellency is not to denigrate or witch-hunt anybody, but just to give the good people of Osun update on what he met on ground.
“It is so unfortunate that many atrocities were committed by the administration of former Governor Adegboyega Oyetola. The report of how the government was looted is everywhere.
On the debt profile revealed by the Governor, Olawale Rasheed said it is sad that Osun has been brought to her knees by the previous administration, noting that such humongous debt cannot be put under the table by a responsible government.
“It is not our duty to cover up for the APC government. Where necessary, the government of Adeleke will ask questions for clarification and for the people of Osun to be aware of what really transpired during the previous administration.
“What Oyetola did was a government of deceit and we are not in for that. Governor Adeleke has made it expressly clear that he is going to run an open government partnership, where everybody will have sense of belonging, unlike what played out during the previous administration.”
Recall, Governor Ademola Adeleke informed Osun traditional rulers in their meeting yesterday, what his administration inherited from Mr Oyetola’s administration.
The Governor said he inherited eight outstanding loan facilities, apart from salaries and pension debts, as the state is indebted to the tune of N407.32 billion.
