PRINCIPAL officers in the local government service of Osun State recently had the brunts of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP’s) Olagunsoye Oyinlola, governor of the state, OSUN DEFENDER can authoritatively inform.
At a reported meeting of the chairmen of the thirty local governments in the state including Modakeke area Office, Ile-Ife, held at the PDP State Secretariat Iwo Road, Osogbo, the party state chairman Mr Ademola Rasaki a.k.a Landero, reportedly informed the council bosses of the worry of the state helmsman over the slipping of the government’s classified documents into the hands of the opposition newspapers.
Apparently conveying the official restiveness in the Bola Ige House, the seat of government in Osogbo resulting from the OSUN DEFENDER news stories on the government activities, to the meeting, the PDP state chief accused the council chairmen of leaking the official and unofficial secrets of the party and government in the state to the rank and file of the opposition political parties and newspapers.
The meeting, which featured fire spitting, hot arguments and counter-argument and irreversible curses, however laid the blame for the incessant leakages of the official conducts in the corridors of power, at the doorsteps of the councils’ principal bureaucrats.
The political bosses in the councils alleged their directors have been caught playing double dealings, pointing at them as conduits, for what they all called “unholy passage of information to the most undesired quarters.”
Some of the council chairmen who spoke after the meeting bluntly knocked the departmental directors in the councils on the heads, and accused them of secret romances with the Action Congress (AC) party.
