Osun Guber: FG Trying To Cripple My Administration – Aregbesola

rauf aregbesolaGovernor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State has raised the alarm over the Federal Government’s plan to cripple his administration before the August 9 gubernatorial election.

Speaking during an open-house session, tagged ‘Gbangbadekun’, where he met with the grassroots people, the artisans, market women among others in Ijebu-Jesa, Oriade Local Government, Aregbesola lamented drastic drop in allocation to the state.

He further accused the Federal Government of a deliberate attempt to weaken states controlled by the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Aregbesola, who is seeking re-election for a second term, however, assured that, despite the development, his administration will continue to pay workers’ salaries as at when due.

“The Federal Government, aside from the drop in the allocation, has devised means to cripple our government before the August election by not giving us the statutory monthly allocation”, he said.

“Let me tell you that there are plans by the federal government not to release the allocation of the coming months before the election so as to cripple our government, thinking that we will not be able to pay workers sal­ary. I want to tell you that they have failed because we will device means of paying our workers”.

The governor reiterated his promise that his administration will not sack any worker despite the drop in funds from the federation account.


  1. This is a cheap black mail,u can’t get popularity tru d means of tellin lies,was Ekiti allocatn ceased,pple wi vote for u based on ur ideology and gud governance,am nt a politician am nt talkin frm political angle,none of u politicians can deceive us any longer,stop bringing Osun money to Lagos.

  2. Adeyinka adeyeyinka, you said you are not talking frm political angle and you are criticising facts…the governor said the allocation to the state slashed and delayed. We need this explanation from Mr Governor for christ sake so civil servant will not keep blaming him for delayed salaries and allowances and also to appreciate his administration despite delayed allocation. Aregbesola is a symbol of democracy.

  3. Let him proof of the delay and reduction of allocation to the state,and stop blackmailing FG. Whenever state fail they blame it on FG, what has he done wt the ones he has so far received. Blackmailing cannot make him re-elected.

  4. @IKB, I will also appreciate it if he can provide a proof dat d federal allocation is being delayed/slashed. But ur second question dat d 1s he has been collecting so far, anybody based/staying in osun for the past 3 yrs won’t say such.
