Osun decides: I will end irregular payment of salaries, says Adeoti
The Action Democratic Party (ADP), at the weekend, kicked off its campaign for the September 22 election, promising to change the political narrative in Osun State.
The event, which was held at Ilesa, the home town of Governor Rauf Aregbesola, witnessed massive turn out of party faithful, especially many defectors from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The candidate of the party, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, who was, until recently, the Secretary to the Osun State Government, said there was the urgent need to correct what he described as “socio-economic anomalies” in the state.
He decried the irregular payment of workers’ salaries, promising that one of the first major steps his government would take, if elected, is to stop the situation.
“My government will be an all-inclusive government that takes care of all without preference, including royal institution.
“I will change the orientation of the youths towards nation-building through development of sports activities.
“If elected, our government, will embark on total review of Aregbesola’s policies to make it pro-masses and make everybody represented in the scheme of things.
“We indeed need your supports to make this aspiration a reality and change the fortunes of our state for better,” Adeoti said.
Meanwhile, the ADP flagbearer has condemned alleged attacks on some of its members while returning from the event.
The condemnation was contained in a statement signed by Adeoti’s media aide, Kayode Agbaje, and made available to newsmen in Osogbo.
He described the attack as barbaric and inimical to democratic principles.
According to him, such acts ought to be condemned by all right-thinking democrats in view of their effects on the nation’s democratic experience.
“While warning the masterminds of the dastardly act to have a rethink, there is need for all candidates in the election not to see the contest as a do-or-die affair,” he said.
He advised members of his party against embarking on retaliatory actions that may further worsen the already tensed situation
