Governor, State of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has posited that the former Chairman of Senate Committee on Appropriation, Senator Iyiola Omisore is unqualified to mock his administration.
Aregbesola said Omisore who could not do anything for the state and his Ile-Ife hometown throughout his 8 years in the Senate even as the Chairman of Senate Committee on Appropriation, has no right to rubbish his achievements in office so far.
He thereby cautioned him to desist from misleading the people of the state with falsehood about the current administration in the state.
The Governor said this at a colloquium organised by a youth group in the state under the auspices of Progressive e-Group in Osogbo, the State capital where his seven years of administering the state was reviewed.
Aregbesola who frowned at the rate at which Omisore that did not do anything for the state and his Ile-Ife hometown with his position in the Senate condemns his government with passion, said he has fulfilled his campaign promises and made positive impact in the lives of people of the state.
“Omisore is not qualified to rubbish my administration. For the 8 years he spent in the state and in spite of his position as the Chairman of Senate Committee on Appropriation, Omisore did not do anything for our people and even the people of Ile-Ife where he hails from.
“Before Omisore could be entitled to condemn my government, he should go to the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) and complete the refund of the fund that he looted from national treasury ”
The Governor commended the Progressive e-Group and the entire youths in the state for their genuine interest in the development of the state and urged them to ignore the falsehood and misleading information by Omisore who is bent on rubbishing his government.
The Coordinator of the Progressives e-Group, Mr Mudasir Ayanfe in his address said the group was established 4 years ago to build synergy and fellowship among youths and those who patriotically believed in the administrative style of Governor Rauf Aregbesola.
According to him, “We established the group in order to collectively showcase Aregbesola’s laudable programmes to the populace in one hand and extensively engage propagandists with facts and figures on the other hand.
“With sincerity of purpose of promoting good governance across board and continuous belief in the leadership style of Governor Rauf Aregbesola, the group that started in 2014 as a local platform has become an official online media team of All Progressives Congress, State of Osun courtesy of our pragmatic Party Chairman – Prince Gboyega Famodun, a household name in the six States of south west and recently, a media extension at Presidency of Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
Mudasir said members of the group are proud of Governor Rauf Aregbesola’s projects and modest achievements in office and that is why they are promoting him.
Dignitaries on the occasion include the Speaker of Osun State of Assembly, Hon Najeem Salaam, the Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola and the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Mr Kolapo Alimi among others.
