The Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has told the state House of Assembly to immediately pronounce the deputy governor, Mrs. Grace Laoye-Tomori, acting governor because the governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola, has abandoned the state for two weeks without the permission of the state assembly.
The party in a statement issued in Osogbo by its spokesperson, Prince Diran Odeyemi, yesterday said from its findings, Governor Aregbesola left the state since 16th October and since then has not returned to date.
The PDP said rather than face the financial crises he created Aregbesola has been spending most of his time outside Osun to avoid pressure from unpaid civil servants and others being owed. It therefore urged the state assembly to be alive to its responsibilities and pronounce the deputy governor acting governor to prevent further “stand down” of governance and constitutional breaches by Aregbesola.
