……no such accrued money, PDP

From Lateef Dada, Osogbo

The Osun State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused Governor Ademola Adeleke of mismanaging N90billion accrued to the state within 100 days of his assumption of office.

The Acting Chairman of the party, Tajudeen Lawal, who spoke at a press conference held at Tinubu/Shettima Campaign Office, Osogbo, described Adeleke’s 100 days as uneventful, hellish, displeasing, nasty, distasteful, wicked, unsavory and unpalatable.

He said apart from the regular FAAC totaling N15 billion, the Adeleke’s administration had received, due to the diligent administration of the State by the immediate past Governor Adegboyega Oyetola, the state government had equally received about  N11 billion from Siftas; N5 billion from NG CARES and N6.7 billion Federal Government parastatal tax liability respectively in the last three months.

Lawal alleged that Adeleke’s administration had in the last three months received another N3.2 billion Nigeria for women projects; N4.9 billion State Ease of Doing Business Reforms among others, aside from the N14 billion left in the kitty by the Oyetola administration totaling over N60 billion.


He accused Adeleke’s administration of mismanaging and misappropriating a total sum of N30 billion that accrued to the coffers of 30 Local Government Areas and the Ife-East Area Office within the last 100 days of administering the affairs of the State.

“It will be pedestrian and monochromatic to talk about the Adeleke promised intervention in the primary health projects across the state and sinking of boreholes in each of the 332 wards across the state as a random investigation of the same, like others, has shown that they are only a mirage and delusion which are only existing in the imagination of the sacked governor and his co-travelers.”


The party stated that the only achievement of Adeleke was the sacking of 1,500 teachers, 500, the dissolution of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), the dissolution of the O’Meal operators, and the forceful withdrawal of official cars from the Iyaloja-General of the state and other Iyalojas (market women leaders) across the state.

In a statement signed by its acting chairman in the state, Dr. Akindele Adekunle, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said the alleged N90 billion did not accrue to the state.


According to the PDP, Governor Adeleke is a man of due process and rule of law who subjected all government’s financial transactions to public financial regulations. “The state account is open to the public and the public knows without being told that Governor Adeleke is not a thieving governor like those of the past as his focus and attention is on delivery of good governance,” he added.
