Ademola Adeleke, Governor of Osun State, has directed all former appointed officials to return government properties in their possession within 48 hours.
While speaking on Wednesday, November 30th, in a statement by Olawale Rasheed, his spokesperson, Adeleke noted that top officials of the most recent administration diverted enormous amounts of government assets, claiming that several official vehicles were missing despite the fact that official records showed that two-thirds of previous state officials left with a fleet of automobiles in their offices.
“Most Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) were stripped of operational assets like vehicles, computers, and even residential fittings. The residences of some top officials were equally pillaged even to lamp fitting.”
“Any former official who refuses to comply with the directive will face the full weight of the law,” he added.
Responding, the All Progressives Congress (APC) Director of Operations, Sunday Akere, said the PDP appeared uncoordinated, saying they should be specific about the allegations of asset stripping to enable him to know what to respond to.
“The government appears uncoordinated. You set up a panel on this same asset matter yesterday (Tuesday). Is it that another committee has been set up in the office of the Governor? They should be specific and we will respond appropriately,” Akere added.
