“Stop giving Osun money to Lagos visitors” | Omisore comes for Aregbesola

PDP Governorship candidate of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore, says the administration of Governor Rauf Aregbesola has borrowed over N480bn since he assumed office in 2010.

Omisore, who has resumed his verbal attacks of Argebesola, stated this at a press conference in Ile Ife on Monday, June 15.

Omisore blamed the inability of Aregbesola to pay workers’ salaries on financial recklessness and lack of proper planning.

He said the loan burden and the wasteful spending by the governor are some of the reasons the administration has been unable to pay workers for the past seven months.

Omisore said, “The principal debt of Osun State under Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola is N480bn. They took N300bn loan, by taking N10bn for each of the 30 local government councils.

“They first raised N60bn bond and later raised another N40bn bond. They borrowed for O’meal project, borrowed for school uniform project and borrowed for airport project.

“They borrowed another N25bn. But the principal debt is N480bn. You will remember that we were saying this before this financial crisis reached this height.

“I raised the alarm then that the way Ogbeni Aregbesola was running the affairs of the state, he would soon run it aground. Now it has happened.”

“The governor should sell the helicopter; the helicopter has two pilots. They spend money on maintenance and so on. He should also stop using chartered aircraft. I am sure this will shock the people to hear that the governor still travels in chartered aircraft despite the financial mess he put the state into.

“He should reduce his security votes, reduce the Government House spending and stop giving Osun money to his Lagos visitors. He should bring back our money. The contracts were inflated, especially the road contract. Gbongan to Akoda, Osogbo to Kwara boundary and the Ring Road were inflated to the tune of N102bn. So, the money to workers is in his pocket. If he can bring just N50bn out from this stolen fund, the workers would smile.”
