State EXCO Meeting: Adeleke’s Spokesperson Fires Back, Says Osun APC Suffers Deep Amnesia



The Spokesperson to Governor Ademola Adeleke, Mallam Olawale Rasheed reiterated commitment of his principal to the development of the state, saying the present administration will do everything within its reach to make life better for the people of the state.

Rasheed while reacting to the accusation by the All Progressives Congress (APC) that the Governor had refused to hold the state Executive Council meeting since he inaugurated members of the executives about 54 days ago.

According to the spokesperson, Adeleke and members of his cabinet are working round the clock to expand delivery of dividend of democracy across the nooks and crannies of the state.

He recalled how former Governor of the state and current minister of Marine and Blue Economy failed to hold State Executive Council meeting almost a year after the 2018 election.

He said: “Osun state All Progressive Congress is reminded that former Governor Gboyega Oyetola held his maiden state executive council meeting on November 4 , 2019, almost a year after the 2018 governorship election.

“It is therefore a probable loss of memory for the state APC to accuse the current administration of either not holding or not announcing to the public the meetings of the state executive council meeting.

“As much as we are not using the abysmal record of the previous government as a yardstick, we pointed out this obvious deceit and memory loss to further help the public to see the falsity in the badly split state APC and the incorrigibleness of the state party leadership.

“Members of the public are assured that their Governor and his cabinet are working round the clock to expand delivery of democratic dividends and correct the big mess of the recent past.

“The cabinet members are for the past three weeks deepening the state sectoral agenda through rigorous brainstorming sessions with the establishment in preparation for an elaborate and expanded state executive council meeting.

“We advise the APC to read through its years of locust in state governance before spewing further falsehood and misinformation into public space.”
