Adeleke's Opening Of N1Bn Govt House Rehabilitation, A Misplaced Priority - Osun APC

The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the state Governor of being a perpetual expert in the employment of misplaced priority to run his infamous administration.

It would be recalled that Governor Adeleke celebrated to high heavens the opening of the rehabilitated Government House in Osogbo, the state capital, on Saturday.

Commenting on the development, the Osun State chairman of the APC, Sooko Tajudeen Lawal, in a statement issued by the party's Director of Media and Information, Chief Kola Olabisi, it is a shame that Governor Adeleke could be involved in flaunting the Government House rehabilitated with N1bn in this austere period and when Osun state has been declared the corporate headquarters of poverty in Yorubaland.

Lawal wondered how such showcasing of the N1bn rehabilitated Government House should attract the priority of a governor who has not deemed it fit to provide palliatives to the people of the state to ameliorate their suffering. 

The state APC chairman explained that it was shocking that despite the huge revenue that came the way of the government of the state, there is little or nothing to show for it in the state in terms of physical infrastructure.

He stated that it is disheartening that a governor could resort to the digging of a gutter when the house is on fire.

Lawal disclosed that it must be a sin of the people of the state that must have been responsible for the foisting of an obviously incompetent governor to oversee the destiny of the state at this period.

The state APC chairman said those who are thinking for the Adeleke administration should cover their faces in shame as no policy of the government has added additional values to the people of the state.

In Lawal's words: "It is a pity that while the counterparts of Governor Adeleke in other states are preoccupied with how to lessen the debilitating effects of the Federal Government removal of fuel subsidy through palliatives, the Osun State governor was busy celebrating something that cannot positively impact the people of the state.

"Any way, we have solace in the fact that the administration of Governor Adeleke is a tenured one of four years which is having 33 more months to be flushed out of the Government House.

"We want to impress it on Governor Adeleke and his co-travellers that we, just like other discerning members of the public in Osun State, are not amused by the Adeleke N1bn rehabilitated Government House which had already been rehabilitated to taste by the immediate-past Governor Gboyega Oyetola now Minister of Marine and Blue Economy.


"The said Government House rehabilitation was a superfluity, unnecessary and a mere job for the boys fraudulently executed to fleece the state of its common patrimony in Naira and Kobo", Lawal stated.
