The Coalition for Good Governance(C4GG) has called out as extreme, sadistic and in bad faith, the behaviors of the immediate past APC Administration of Governor Oyetola in Osun state, in the wake of the recent revelation of Osun state debt profile by Governor Ademola Adeleke.

C4GG noted with great concern how Governor Gboyega Oyetola who has been at the helm of affairs of Osun State public finance and governance for the past twelve years have failed to take responsibility as demanded of great leaders around the world, and instead of apologizing to the people of the state for failing to run an all inclusive and transparent government while in office, he is dubiously trying to distort facts and figures in a bid to shift blame to a government he was part and parcel of for several years.

We demand immediate and unreserved apology from Governor Oyetola in the wake of this damning disclosures from Governor Ademola Adeleke, which has now been followed by an even more damning revelation from Former Governor Aregbesola confirming that all the financial transactions consummated during his administration was not without the full knowledge and approval of Governor Oyetola who was at the time the Chief of Staff to the state Government.

Former Governor Oyetola has messed up Osun State finances from revenue to expenditure and multiple debts, this revelation is at variance and in contrast with multiple claims by the former governor on the prudence nature of his administration which has now been found to be a ruse.

The Coalition For Good Governance further raised concerns and ask for a probe of all contracts awarded by the former Governor in the last 2years.

It is absolute disrespect for the people of Osun State that Oyetola Administraton did not prepare a handover note, as it is customary to do when a new administration is taking office, a tradition that was passed over to him and recently re-affirmed by Former Governor Aregbesola.

That the Oyetola led Administration could go ahead to procure loan in the name of the already improverished and mis-administered  State like Osun, even after losing the election earlier in July 2022, further gives credence to the disdain Oyetola has for the people of Osun State.

Oyetola has broken the trust of the Osun state people, against the oath that he swore to, and need to face the consequences.

The Coalition for Good Governance therefore issue out this statement to put the Executives under Governor Ademola Adeleke on notice, that if the Oyetola Administration, and the APC are not sued to court within 7 Days, for the poor administration of Osun State Finance, and Breach of Trust of the Osun People, the Administration itself shall be sued to court.
