PDP asks Aregbesola to account for Osun allocations

The Peoples Democratic Party, Osun State chapter, has demanded a

detailed account of how the state’s allocations and other funds

collected by the administration of Governor Rauf Aregbesola, since

the inception of his administration.

The party, in a statement on Tuesday, by the Director of Media and

Publicity of Iyiola Omisore Campaign Organisation, Mr. Diran

Odeyemi, said the PDP was making the request because it had

established that all the projects the Osun State government had

claimed as its projects were either funded by Federal Government

or with local governments allocations.

The party said it welcomed the admittance by the government

spokesperson, Mr Sunday Akere, that the administration of

President Goodluck Jonathan through UBEC, built all elementary

and middle schools in the state, while those roads executed at local

governments were paid for by all council areas in the state.

The PDP said, “With the facts at our disposal, Ogbeni Aregbesola

has received over N300bn from federation account since he took

over as the governor of the state. All elementary and middle

schools in Osun state are built by UBEC, all high schools were

constructed with SUKUK bond,

“Osogbo/Ila Odo road originally designed and partly executed by a

PDP government, is being funded by Bank of Infrastructure, Abuja,

another establishment of the Federal Government. So, where is the

state allocation?

“Both Aiyegbaju and Aje markets are being funded by private

organisations, while Ring Road in Osogbo and Gbongan Road are

being financed by contractors themselves. We are left with no

option, as indigenes, to demand the account of what Aregbesola has


The PDP said in spite of not spending state’s earnings on any

capital projects, it was amazed that the debt burden of the state was

still in excess of N300bn.

It further alleged that despite huge amount being expended on

projects, the quality of the jobs done was still suspect.
