As the Governor, State of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola gets set to be sworn in for the second time, the People’s Democratic Party, Osun state chapter has queried the ‘bogus budget’ to be expended for the inauguration by November 27, 2014 which has been described as sheer wickedness and wastage.

In a statement released by the state PDP’s director of media and strategy, Mr Diran Odeyemi, the party contended that “the budget of N700 million for the swear-in ceremony amidst hunger by workers, who have not been paid salary in the last three months tell much about the kind of leaders holding the reigns in Osun at the moment.”

The party recalled what the governor said in November 2012, while addressing some bankers that “I can pay workers salary every 25th day of the month without monthly allocation from the federation account and I will not owe them a penny,” but regretted that just two years after, the governor had found it hard paying workers, even when statutory allocations due to the state are still being given to it.”

But in a swift reaction, the APC director of publicity, research and strategy, Mr Kunle Oyatomi, described the PDP’s allegation as a ruse, stressing that the public should discountenance their position as mere ranting of a clueless people.

According to him, “why are these people chasing shadow? When people have gone berserk, they need help. Those in the leadership of the PDP in Osun need help. The APC in Osun would enjoin them to look beyond their pedestrian argument and see reason.”

“They are enemies of workers. In the history of this state, Aregbesola remains the only governor who has done so much for workers. The workers themselves know and appreciate his gestures. Right now, Aregbesola is empowering the people with N2billion with the assistance of CBN. The PDP was in power for seven years, what did they do with the power?” Oyatomi asked.
