Osun PDP Wants FG To Explain Why The State Got Only N6 Million Allocation


Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, yesterday urged federal government to speak up on the financial status of Osun state and why the state has been getting least allocation in the last six months.

In a statement issued yesterday by the PDP’s spokesperson in the state, Prince Diran Odeyemi, the Party said “Rather than keep on shielding Governor Aregbesola, The Ministry of Finance and Debt Management Office (DMO) and other relevant agencies of government must explain to Nigerians why Osun got a paltry N6.2 million out of N2.4 billion due to the state.

But the All Progressives Congress, APC, also called on all public-spirited men and women in the state to contribute ideas to solving the economic crisis ravaging the country and the state, rather than indulging in “self-defeatist criticism” of the Rauf Aregbesola-led APC government of the state.

This call was contained in a statement made available to the media by the party’s Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Mr Kunle Oyatomi.

The PDP based its reason for the call on federal government and its agencies that are overseeing finances of states on the revelation that Osun got N6.2 million from the federation account for the month of February.

Odeyemi said the actual debt status of the state should be publicly displayed and the terms of repayment must also be disclosed to lay to rest the growing apprehension among the people of Osun state at home and abroad.
