Osun SDP Threatens Aregbesola On Public Declaration Of Assets

Published

on

Rauf-AregbesolaThe Osun State chapter of Social Democratic Party, SDP, has charged Governor Rauf Aregbesola to make a public declaration of his assets, or the party would be forced to publish what it knows about his assets.

The party described the governor’s defence on how he had spent several billions of the state funds as a mere rhetoric, laughable and inconsistent going by the facts in its possession.

Osun SDP chairman, Mr. Ademola Ishola, in a speech during the party’s Performance Assessment meeting in Osogbo, the state capital at the weekend, to deliberate on how the party performed in the last national election, said what his party uncovered about Aregbesola’s wealth would stun Nigerians.

He said: “Our party discovered that one of the areas where fraud was being perpetrated by the Aregbesola’s government was through consultants handling virtually all his projects.

“It is a shame that even if the governor wanted to buy toothpicks, it has to pass through consultants.

“While the governor has not failed once to take his security votes every month from the consolidated funds, retirees whose pensions are to be paid from the same account have not received theirs in the last seven months. Records as at May showed that 242 of the retirees lost their lives within this period.

“Simply put, Osun is today paralyzed with all government activities at stand still. The governor has virtually left the state for us to slug it out with poverty and hunger”.

Mr. Ishola stressed that his party will not rest until everything in the state is straightened out by the All Progressives Congress (APC) led government at the federal level.

    Fashola: If We Keep Our Promises, APC Will Retain Power In 2023Babatunde Fashola

Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has expressed optimism that Nigerians will still vote the All Progressives Congress (APC) back to power in 2023.

Fashola, however, added that the only thing that can make Nigerians not to vote for the APC is if the party fails to fulfill its campaign promises to them.

The Minister made this remark while speaking with journalists on Monday in Abuja.

He noted that even if the promises are not 100% fulfilled but the citizens see signs of commitment and progress, other parties should forget about displacing APC in 2023.

The former Lagos State Governor added that opposition parties are not doing better than the APC, hence should not expect Nigerians to vote for them come 2023.

He said: “Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics,” the former Lagos governor said.

“If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred percent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish what you started.”
