By Nofisat Marindoti

A socio political group, Oranmiyan Democrats has hailed the initiative of Governor Rauf Aregbesola in introducing parliamentary system of government at the local government level, saying the innovation will save the government from huge spending.

The National convener of the group, Atunluse Titilola Moshood who gave the hint while speaking in Osogbo, said the system apart from saving the cost of governance at the local level, will also bring government closer to the people at the grassroots.

He maintained that the system is good for Nigeria’s democracy at a critical time the world is battling with economic crisis.

Titilola also said the parliamentary system of government will also enhance credible distribution of dividends of democracy to the downtrodden and thereby save the people from penury.

He then applauded the peaceful conduct of the people in the just concluded local government election, saying the people displayed the Omoluabi ethos the state is known for during the exercise.

The convener of the group also gave kudos to the security operatives and the umpire for their uprightness before, during and after the election.

By Nofisat Marindoti

In a statement signed by the Media Adviser to the Governor, Mr Sola Fasure,  Aregbesola also commended the six political parties that fielded candidates in the election for their keen sportsmanship and for playing by the rule of the game.

According to the release, “Governor Rauf Aregbesola, on behalf of the State Government of Osun will like to thank the good people of the state for the peaceful and successful conduct of Parliamentary Elections into the Local Government Councils, Local Council Development Areas, Area Councils and Administrative Offices in the state last Saturday. 

“Governor Aregbesola expresses profound gratitude to the people of the state for voting for all the candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as they have always done in the past. The pattern of the voting is a demonstration of their unflinching support for the progressive cause. 

“It is a faith that served our fathers, beginning from Chief Obafemi Awolowo and the Action Group (AG) and Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN) in the First and Second Republic respectively. This has served us also through Chief Bola Ige and Chief Bisi Akande to our present administration under which great and unprecedented developments came. 

“From all reports, the people came out massively in the 71 wards where councillorship posts were contested and conducted themselves peacefully and orderly before, during and after the election. Their Omoluabi essence was in vivid display.

“Governor Aregbesola commends also the six political parties that fielded candidates in the election for their keen sportsmanship, for playing by the rule of the game and for having faith in the democratic system. With their attitude and conduct, there is great hope for development of the democratic system of government in Osun.”

Explaining the advantage of the parliamentary system of government, Aregbesola lauded the State Independent Electoral Commission (OSIEC) which conducted the election, for doing a good job and its transparency, fairness and efficiency displayed throughout the election.

“The following day, Sunday, January 28, 2018, all results were declared and winners announced. On the same day, certificates of return were issued out to the winners. This is a normal procedure that should trail any contest.

“The governor hopes that the body has learnt the right lessons, especially on where lapses occurred, and improve with subsequent elections.

“The law enforcement agencies have also been praised by Governor Aregbesola for rising to the occasion, for keeping the peace and for nipping in the bud the few cases of breach, promptly apprehending the suspects and restoring normalcy. It is hoped that the law will take its due course and serve as deterrent to the outlaws who might want to disrupt elections and perpetrate electoral fraud in the future.”

Governor Aregbesola also recognised and thanked election monitors and observers for the role they played, stating that they are the witnesses of truth who will tell the whole world what they saw and observed on the novel parliamentary election that took place in Osun.

“The stage is now set for the inauguration of the councillors from the 389 wards into the parliaments in the Local Government Councils, Local Council Development Areas, Area Councils and Administrative Offices in the state.  After this, the chairpersons and other leaders will emerge from the parliament.  

“The election that held last Saturday is unarguably a springboard for advancing the course of broad-based, all inclusive governance at the grassroots that will politically empower the people and provide the platform for accelerated development. 

“One advantage of parliamentary system is that the executive and the legislative arms are fused. The expectation is therefore high that elected officials will live up to the billing.” the release added. 

Governor Aregbesola thereby congratulated the winners, urging them to see their election not as an end but a means to an end, which is serving the people.

Osun LG Poll: Accord Party Accuses OSIEC Of Denial To Sensitive Materials

By Nofisat Marindoti

Two days after Local Government Parliamentary Election was conducted in 71 wards in the State of Osun, Accord Party has accused the State Independent Electoral Commission, OSIEC of denying its party agents access to sensitive materials before the election.

The Chairman of the party Mr Segun Fanibe who spoke on a radio programme monitored by Osun Defender said he had expected that the Party agents would be called to inspect the materials the night before the election.

Alleging that OSIEC as a scam, Fanibe also accused the commission of only allowing the ruling party, The All Progressives Congress, APC, agents to inspect the materials at the polling units.

However in a swift reaction, the Chairman of OSIEC who was also on the programme, Otunba Segun Oladitan said it was not possible party agents are called to inspect sensitive materials the night before the election.

Oladitan who said the materials could only be inspected at the polling units, also denied the allegation that only APC agents were allowed to inspect the sensitive materials.

“Ask him at what point were they not allowed? Was it at the headquarters or the polling units? No political party was disallowed from inspecting the materials and you can only inspect at the polling units not the night before. If you are not satisfied, let’s meet at the tribunal.”

Reacting to Accord Party Chairman’s claim that the ballot papers arrived late at some polling centers, Oladitan stated that there is no election where the materials arrive on time.

Modakeke Returns Ten Wards To APC And Aregbesola

It is now clear that Modakeke is the base and source of the Progressives in the state of Osun and the South West.

We all witnessed it in the last local government election held on 27th January 2018 where APC recorded all glory in the process.

Although it is not a news that the PDP said that they will not participate in the process but APC Modakeke defeated all political parties that participated in the process.

Accord Party is just like a baby that is yet to born in the city as they don’t have any political structure and political planning is their major problem.

Kudos to our APC leaders and stakeholders in the city that shows their face before, during and after the assignment Alh. Fatai Kolawole, Alh. Wahab Adetunji, Hon.Wale Amusan Alh. Bisi Kolawole Elder. Kola Olabisi, Eng. Tayo, Kehinde, Dr Egunranti and many more that we can’t mention here God will reward you all… Thanks

Ahead of the Saturday local government council election, residents and other individuals of voting age have been charged to vote massively for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) with a view to ensuring that the current developmental strides of the Governor Rauf Aregbesola administration is maintained.

This was contained in a message personally signed by the Secretary to the Government of the State of Osun, Alhaji Moshood Olalekan Adeoti, and made available to the media.

According to him, it is in the best interest of all and sundry in the state that the current developmental strides continue unimpeded.

He therefore admonished the electorate to go out peacefully on Saturday to perform their civic duties without embarking on any violence.

“It is my candid view that our people are not known for violence, while on hands must be on deck to ensure that anything that may jeopardize the current peace being enjoyed in the state is not destabilized.

“To this end, I want to charge members of our party (APC) to go across the length and breadth of the state to mobilize electorate to vote for the party without breaking any of the electoral laws,” Alhaji Adeoti stressed.
