The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Osun State, Iyiola Omisore called on Governor Rauf Aregbesola to honourably resign from office in the wake of his government’s inability to pay workers’ salary for seven months.
Speaking at the PDP secretariat in the state capital, Osogbo, Omisore lampooned Governor Aregbesola for the financial mess, adding that currently, “Osun is not a failed state.”
His words: “It is good that Ogbeni Aregbesola admitted that the issue of Osun State financial crisis was beyond his capacity. But this admission is not enough, I expected him to have communicated to the state House of Assembly and honourably leave the seat of the governor.
“Osun is now a failed state because of financial recklessness of the governor. I really appreciate the fact that he confessed that the present state of Osun affairs is beyond him but he should immediately throw in the towel.
“Nearly all commercial banks in Osun Sate are being owed one form of loan or the other. The matter has reached that stage that the Committee of Bankers in the state at their meeting, resolved that no bank should borrow this government any more. They are also waiting for remittances into state coffers.”
