The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused Governor Ademola Adeleke of lying about his whereabouts, for against the annoying claim of his Spokesperson that he was to embark on a short working visit to Europe and Asia where he would finalise partnership deals with investors and development partners, Governor Adeleke has been holidaying in the United States of America in the last two weeks, shortly after the debilitating defeat of his party in Kogi State where he wasted meagre resources of Osun people to prosecute the electoral misadventure of a co-mannequin, Dino Melaye.

Commenting on the development, the Osun State APC chairman, Sooko Tajudeen Lawal, in a statement issued today by the party's Director of Media and Information, Chief Kola Olabisi, described the statement  from the governor's office on the state chief executive's travelling as full of contradictions criminally packaged to hide some information.

"Of course, this is a mere prelude to a foundation-laying for excuses that Governor Adeleke would not be physically present in the state for the celebration of his one-year administration coming up tomorrow.

"It was reliably gathered that a recorded statement from the governor would be played for the people of the state in lieu of his physical presence tomorrow.

"No one can begrudge another for falling sick or nursing an ailment as such is beyond the control of any human being but God Almighty but it beholds on those who are holding the people's mandate in trust to always tell the truth and stand by the truth.

"We know very well that Governor Adeleke has absconded from the state so he would not be able to give due account of his stewardship to the people of the state. 

"Since November 2022 when he came on board, Governor Adeleke has run the state aground with his sheer incompetence, lack of proper education and his zero administrative acumen.

"He is afraid to disclose to Osun people how he has mismanaged over N130billion revenue accrued to his government in the last one year. 

"He is afraid to tell them how he has allocated in the supplementary budget over N10billion for his food, entertainment and office use while parents of UNIOSUN students are struggling to pay increased school fees his regime forced on them to pay. 

"Governor Adeleke is ashamed to face the Osun people that one year after, his promise of making Osun another Dubai is a fluke told by a scoundrel and conman.

"Adeleke is distraught to face Osun people because he has failed to provide palliative for them in the face of economic hardship occasioned by removal of fuel subsidy and the N9billion he collected from the Federal Government, his demonic government has looted it. 

"Adeleke is afraid to face the anger of Osun people that while a serious state like Ogun is investing in Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) buses, which is capable of making cost of transportation cheaper, Adeleke, in a ploy to line his pocket, is putting Osun money in unsustainable diesel-propelled vehicles purchased over 10 year ago."

Lawal added that while Adeleke's junketing around the world, ostensibly running after investors and development partners, has fetched the state no gain,  the APC government in Ekiti State has opened up the state with Independent Power Producer (IPP) designed to bring investment and employment to that state.

Finally, Lawal stated that: "What is certain is that Governor Adeleke would be laying a dangerous precedent with his absence from the one-year anniversary of his administration tomorrow as it would be the first time that such would happen in the history of the creation of the state."
