 Former Deputy Governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore, has lambasted the government of Osun State over a statement credited to it that he should tender apology for challenging the government to explain the role of UNESCO in the construction of the road leading to the Osun grove.

Omisore, while describing the statement as laughable, said the government lacked moral right to demand accountability from anyone judging from its own lack of such value.

According to Omisore, "there is no doubt that the Aregbesola government holds the record as the most inept, prodigal and corrupt in the history of South-West.

“A government that does not understand the meaning of conscience cannot talk about it. Over and over we have asked the Osun government and Aregbesola to justify the huge amount of debts they have racked up for the state while throwing the people into poverty. But up till now, all they have engaged in are blatant lies and propaganda,” Omisore stated.

Making reference to projects like “the multibillion naira Opon Imo, a contract that was allegedly awarded to or co-ordinated by the governor’s son, N20.9 billion garment factory, RLG factory, white elephant Osun Airport that has gulped billions of Osun people’s money,” Omisore said it “is unfathomable how Aregbesola is able to sleep in the night knowing full well that his government is running on deceit.”

“If you claimed you have spent about N8 billion naira on Opon-Imo, it is sure every secondary school student in Osun State must have the device. Or how much does one piece of the tablet cost? But go to the schools, ask the students about Opon-Imo and they will just laugh in your face. Some of them will even tell you it is Opon-Eemo, meaning phantom, because they have never seen it in their schools.

“That is one of the achievements Aregbesola has been bandying about. but the government has no explanation for the failure the state has been recording in WASCE and SSSCE, which never happened under Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)  government in the state.”

Emphasising the worsening socio-economic situation in the state, the former Chairman, Senate Committee on Appropriation, said the government has “thrown many Osun workers and other residents into unquantifiable poverty.

“Many businesses have collapsed in the state. People are dying, yet the debts of the state keep mounting. And this government has kept on borrowing, not minding what happens to the future of the younger generations.”

Omisore, therefore, reiterated his call on the government to render account on all his borrowings. He also challenged a section of the so called rights organisations that have been collaborating with the government to defraud the state and her people to ask the government for the details of loans and bonds it has collected on behalf of the state and what it has done with such loans and bonds.    

“I also read the barefaced lie-driven attempts by the government and its agents disguising as rights organisation to justify and cover up the mammoth fraud going on in Osun State.

However, there is no quantum of deception and diabolic spell from this devious and evil clan that can overtake or overcome the horse of truth.

“I challenge these collaborating rights groups and all the genuine ones to unearth the mystery surrounding Osun State loans and bonds secured by the Aregbesola government, as well as the projects purportedly executed with them,” Omisore said. He added that no matter how long it took, “the evil spell cast on the people of the state by this diabolical clan will expire very soon by the grace of God.”
