Adeleke alleges Oyetola plotting to plunge Osun into bankruptcy before leaving office
• Anxiety as Supreme Court decides Adeleke’s fate today
• Aregbesola loyalists urge APC to resolve the crisis in the state
• Lauds minister’s inclusion in Tinubu’s campaign council
The Senator Ademola Adeleke Transition Committee, yesterday, said it had discovered another ongoing mass recruitment exercise by the Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola, in alleged continuation of the governor’s efforts to bankrupt the state and plunges it into a deeper financial mess before the governor-elect takes over on November 27, 2022.
A statement signed by Chairman, Media Sub-Committee, Olawale Rasheed, revealed that the incumbent administration had commenced recruitment of 500 health workers with a view to increasing the state payroll during Adeleke’s administration.
“The recruitment, shrouded in mystery, is a platform for a deliberate ploy to increase the state’s payroll and complicate efforts to address the parlous state of the state’s finance,” the statement reads in part.
MEANWHILE, anxiety has been mounting within the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State as the Supreme Court will today decide the fate of the governor-elect, Senator Adeleke Adeleke’s candidature.
A former aspirant and now dismissed member of Osun PDP, Dotun Babayemi, is seeking redress over the authentic candidate between him and Adeleke.
It was gathered that the apex court would be delivering judgment on the matter today to determine who the authentic candidate is for the governorship poll held on July 16.
In another development, a faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State, loyal to the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, yesterday, urged the National Executive Council (NEC) of the party to urgently resolve the crisis rocking its chapter in the state.
The appeal was made as the party members commended the national leadership of APC for including the former governor of the state in the Presidential Campaign Council of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, notwithstanding obvious opposition from some quarters.
The Rasaq Salinsile-led faction of the APC in the state, in a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Biodun Agboola, said it was a big relief for it that the party’s national leadership eventually considered Aregbesola as a member of the campaign council, saying that it would have been a minus to the party if the minister was excluded.
