The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Osun State has accused Governor Ademola Adeleke of lying about his whereabouts.
The APC also chided the governor’s spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed for announcing that Governor Adeleke had embarked on a short working visit to Europe and Asia.
The state governor, in a statement by his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed had announced that Adeleke had commenced a working vacation to Europe and Asia.
Rasheed also revealed via the statement that Governor Adeleke embarked on the journey to finalise partnership deals with investors and development partners.
However, the Osun APC, in a statement signed by the Chairman, Tajudeen Lawal on Sunday, revealed that Governor Adeleke has been holidaying in the United States of America in the last two weeks.
It claimed that the statement from the governor’s office on his purported trip could be described as full of contradictions criminally packaged to hide some information.
Lawal also claimed that Adeleke travelled out of the country shortly after the debilitating defeat of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Kogi State.
“Of course, this is a mere prelude to a foundation-laying for excuses that Governor Adeleke would not be physically present in the state for the celebration of his one-year administration coming up tomorrow.
“It was reliably gathered that a recorded statement from the governor would be played for the people of the state in lieu of his physical presence tomorrow.
“No one can begrudge another for falling sick or nursing an ailment as such is beyond the control of any human being but God Almighty, however, it beholds on those who are holding the people’s mandate in trust to always tell the truth and stand by the truth.
“We know very well that Governor Adeleke has absconded from the state so he would not be able to give due account of his stewardship to the people of the state.
“Since November 2022, when he came on board, Governor Adeleke has run the state aground with his sheer incompetence, lack of proper education and his zero administrative acumen.
“He is afraid to disclose to Osun people how he has mismanaged over N130 billion in revenue accrued to his government in the last one year.
“He is afraid to tell them how he has allocated in the supplementary budget over N10 billion for his food, entertainment and office use while parents of UNIOSUN students are struggling to pay increased school fees his regime forced on them to pay.
“Governor Adeleke is ashamed to face the Osun people that one year after, his promise of making Osun another Dubai is a fluke.
“Adeleke is distraught to face Osun people because he has failed to provide palliative for them in the face of economic hardship occasioned by the removal of fuel subsidy and the N9billion he collected from the Federal Government, his demonic government has looted it.
“Adeleke is afraid to face the anger of Osun people that while a serious state like Ogun is investing in Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) buses, which is capable of making the cost of transportation cheaper, Adeleke in a ploy to line his pocket, is putting Osun money in unsustainable diesel-propelled vehicles purchased over 10 years ago.”
The Osun APC also claimed that Adeleke would be laying a dangerous precedent with his absence from the first anniversary of his administration on Monday, as it would be the first time that such would happen in the history of the creation of the state.
