Ogun: SDP Guber Candidate Berates Abiodun Over ‘Slow’ Pace Of Governance


The 2023 gubernatorial candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Ogun State, Engr. Tony Ojeshina, has berated “the slow pace of governance” in Ogun State, saying that this has inflicted so much pains, mystery and suffering on indigenes and residents of the State.

According to Ojesina, Ogun State has always been known as a “model” of corporate governance worth emulating by others in the country, saying that the state has been losing this enviable position over the last few years.

The former governorship candidate, who titled his his statement, “The Mode and Style of Current Governance in Ogun State: A Precipice for Disaster Nature Abhors a Vacuum”, noted that “the current state of governance in Ogun State is unprecedented and unconstitutional”.

Ojesina said, the current ‘unconstitutional’ governance in the state, “started with the delay and postponement of the inauguration of the House of Assembly by the Executive arm in June”, saying that the delay tactics was meant to establish supremacy, thereby begin a process of intimidation of the legislative Arm by the Executive Arm.

“Ogun State is currently been run by a “Sole Administrator.” There are no cabinet members to make decisions and conduct day-to-day running of government. It is preposterous to give this responsibility to “Special Advisers to the Governor”. Special Advisers are not statutory positions, but are chosen by the governor without any screening and clearance by the House of Assembly as stipulated by law”.
