Candidate representing the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in the forthcoming governorship election in Osun State, ‘Segun Akinwusi has slammed the incumbent governor of the state, Rauf Aregbesola over last Saturday’s live debate that featured only the governor.
“We have 20 governorship candidates in Osun State. I am the first person to have challenged Aregbesola to a live debate to let us discuss the state economy, the huge debt profile of the state and his so-called achievements.
“Information had it that the so-called international community said to have organised the debate never existed and my two co-contestants of Labour Party and PDP were invited on phone an hour to the programme.
“For the avoidance of doubt, if Aregbesola is manly enough, he should let us sit together to debate about his governance.”
The former Head of Service (HOS) further slammed the governor over the habit of announcing when he pays workers’ salaries.
“The civil servants have done their part by working and the state has the responsibility by paying them. When workers have fulfilled their part of contract, the state government must do theirs as well.”
