Osun budget confirms Aregbesola’s eight-year hopeless administration – PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Osun State, has described the christening of the 2019 budget as a “budget of hope” as confirmation of the hopeless situation during the eight years of the Aregbesola administration that recently ended.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Chairman of the party in the state, Hon. Soji Adagunodo, and made available to newsmen in Osogbo, Osun State capital.

He said the courage of the incumbent Governor, Gboyega Oyetola, to reflect the true state of the state through the 2019 budget was highly commendable.

“While acknowledging the contributions of Oyetola about the hopeless state of Osun, despite that he served in that administration as Chief of Staff, a post described by Aregbesola as ‘engine room’, we however appreciate the departure from the self denial that brought the state to this quagmire.

“What is hope in not paying salaries as at when due? When has payment of salaries become a privilege.

“Oyetola should also note that the people of Osun have been made to pay for Aregbesola’s prolifigacy through excessive taxation, neck breaking levies and dues.

“The Governor should not add to the burden of the people of Osun by introducing more taxes because when Osun had enough, the common man did not feel the impact,” he said.

The PDP chairman then called on the people not to be deceived by the “false” hope in the budget, saying ” a man who was the engine room of the hopelessness cannot give any hope.”

He however wondered where the state that has about N5bn debt to pay monthly will get over N150bn to execute the budget.

Adagunodo then called on the people of the state to keep praying for better political alternative that will give genuine hope to the people of the state.
