Embattled Governor of the State of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, has no reason to remain in office if he cannot pay state workers and pensioners, frontline public affairs analyst, Mr. Jimi Disu, has said.
For two straight days (yesterday and Thursday), Mr. Disu was full of anger as he commented on newspaper headlines while co-hosting the popular Classic FM Lagos breakfast programme, ‘FRONT PAGE NEWS & ANALYSIS’.
“An outraged Disu, a veteran journalist and PR expert, asked repeatedly: “Where has all the money gone? What happened to federal allocations? What happened to IGR (Internally Generated Revenue)?”
Berating Aregbesola, Disu thundered: “And the man is still there as if nothing happened! The man should have been impeached! He has no moral right to govern a state if he cannot pay salaries! The man should resign or be impeached! What of the chopper that he bought? He can move round the state without helicopter. Now that he cannot pay salaries, he should sell off some of these things and pay even if it is one month.”
Disu also lambasted the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), saying: “There is a conspiracy of silence. I am surprised that APC and their NEC (National Executive Committee) have not called Aregbesola and asked him what the problems are.”
News Express reports that tension is high in Osun, with workers (who are reportedly owed seven months’ salaries) and pensioners (owed for nine months) in war mood.
