The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) on Wednesday said it had uncover, “another heinous plan” by an opposition political party, to use students of Osun State-owned tertiary institutions to storm Osogbo and other major towns around the state, to stage violent protests and cause mayhem.
The party said the plan was aimed at destabilising the programmes of the current administration in the state, thereby warning the students and other peace-loving people in the state to stay clear of the plan.
Osun State ACNacting Chairman, Elder AdelowoAdebiyi, in a statement signed in Osogbo and made available tonewsmen, alleged that the meeting to carry out the violent protest was held at the palace of a prominent traditional ruler in Osun.
The party also alleged that at the meeting, “The ill-intentioned conveners made available huge sums of money to the students, to mobilise and transport them to engage in the act of brazen lawlessness and disregard for the rule of law.”
The statement reads; “The ACN is not unaware of details of the planned mayhem, designed to serve as pretence for the declaration of a state of emergency, to suit their roller-coaster approach of undermining the peace-seeking and people-centered administration of Governor Rauf Aregbesola.”
“This is another chapter in the book of infamy, which was opened by disgruntled politicians, who are still licking their wounds since the restoration of Governor Aregbesola’s mandate by the Court of Appeal on November 26, 2010.”
The party therefore called on all law enforcement agents, to be on alert and nip the crisis in the bud before the failed political operators subject the state to the horror of regrettable infamy.
They also warned the opposition party not to undermine the current administration by abusing the hands of fellowship extended to them by the governor, saying, “any attempt by anyone to obstruct the rule of law, shall henceforth be visited with the due weight of the law.”
ACN also advised parents and guardians, to appeal to their wards not to allow themselves to be used as tools of anarchy, disorder and mayhem.
“Those behind the plan were those who kept their own children away from prying-eyes of the public and attract other people’s children with their ill-gotten wealth, to pursue a doomed agenda. The people of Osun State abhor violence in all ramifications. That was why they preferred the ACN to others in the 2007 and 2011 general elections,” the party said.

PDP will regret this move so I urge then to abandon this evil plan of theirs.

ACN as a party are full of lies and raising false alarm. Before ogbeni’s swearing in last year, a lot anytime they have problem with themselves. it is always one person or the other.
I am sure one day when they have nightmare, they will still point to opposition has been responsible for their nightmare.
Thinks are not fair in osun under acn.
God deliver us all.

Enough of this propaganda of PDP this PDP that. Aregbe should perform. He has collected more than N50billion from the federation Account between November 2010 and July 2011. In fact Osun State collected N12billion in July 2011 for both state and local government. People should be informed that the 3 tiers of government (Federal, state and local governments) shared N1.3trillion naira in July as against the average monthly sum of N450billion they use to share. about N770billion was use to augument from the Excess Crude Account.
I know some people would argeu that all governments collected extra pay but what has our own dear Gov Aregbe done with all these large sums of money. It is on record that the medical students program of the Osun State University has been paralysed. We have all been blaming the PDP government but the PDP built the University which Aregbe is now consigning into the dustbin. At a time, he was talking of wanting to sell the University to a private manager.

There were wild jubilations across the South western part of Nigeria the moment ACN governments were being entrenched from one state to the other after the court judgmenents.
Unfortunately however, these jubilations have become ashes in our mouth with the non performance witnessed in the ACN controlled states except in Lagos where there are glimpses of hope. Again, the performance in Lagos could have been better had there not been leakages as it was exposed by ACN members themselves that Lagos Speaker has collected N7b within the last 14 months as first line charge. The fact that the speaker did not deny receiving the funds speaks volume of what could be happening. His defence that he shares the money with the other 39 members of the assembly is disturbing.
Workers have been on strike in Osun state for weeks. This state has collected over N50billion from the federation account in the past 10 months of Aregbesola’s ACN government. Osun State University has been comatozed in the last 8 months. This University used to be the best in terms of non disturbance.
This brings me to the view that there is big leadership gap as analyzed below:

All should be concerned that there is a big leadership gap in this country called Nigeria. Leadership is about Trust. To the extent that none of the rulers could be trusted supports the existence of the gap. Not even the much averred ACN under the leadership of Bola Tinubu. We have all be hailing Fashola as a performer. Who could have conceived that N500m could be given to the Speaker of the Lagos State Assembly monthly as first line charge? First line means deduction from the revenue before appropriation.
In defending himself, the speaker informed the EFCC that he gives N5m monthly to each member of the Lagos Assembly including himself. For what purpose and for what purpose is Dimeji Bankole being tried? Same purpose of course. In addition, N5m for 40 legislators amounted to N200m monthly. What does He spend the balance of N300m on? If this is happening in the state the performing Fashola heads, how much of these are happening in other states including security votes.
We have always been castigating Peoples Destruction Party (PDP) as the only corrupt party. The fact that the speaker of the Lagos State Assembly did not deny collecting the N500m but stated that He distributes to member confirms corruption everywhere. Lagos is the best performing state.
I cannot see any difference between Obasanjo’s brigande and Bola Tinubu’s corruption. Could anyone tell me if there was any primary election in the ACN? Is the act of Tinubu dictating who would go for what position different from that of ever overbearing tendencies of Obasanjo? Tinubu’s wife, children and in laws were foisted on Lagosians. They are all same of the same. Let no one be fooled.
It is on record that Aregbesola’s electoral victory was hailed with pomp and pageantry. However, those jubilations have become ashes. In fact, He collected over N12billion in July 2011 for both state and local governments. What has he done? If he has not done anything, is the fund still intact? No.

people will just be talking as if they are upset, upon what Aregbe has done within the short time he resumed the office, their brother Oyinlola was unable to do the 1quter of what Aregbe did.
in fact, Raffiu Sanusi think before you talk. OGBENI GOV. is a Gov. that love people regardless of any political party you might belong to.
I don’t him, we are not from the same village and i’m not staying in Osun but as a bonafide indigene of the State,i can perceive the smell of the rapid development and growth going on in Osun State
Am assuring you Sanusi, in the next 2 years you that is condemning him ( Aregbe) now, you will be praising him when you open your eyes and see the new Face of osun state. ILU MI ONI DARU….. YIO MA DARA SI NI OOOOO.

why not come and stay in Osun state so you can enjoy the things he has done in such a short period? because me, i couldnt wait to come from lag to see the fulfilment of the promise made on a big billboard in my home town of ilesa which has pictures of a road in a developed country and promising us same, now all our roads are so clean with street lights, we have no dirth piling by the side of the road, i even went to osogbo and it was so clean with no pot holes in major areas!! yeah, please stop this clueless propagandas already, our Governor should start doing something if he actually plans to, as of yet, you can go out to apolitical areas and question ordinary citizens, the performance sheet is written in red if you know what that mean.
