Osun Masterminds is Mischievous on Roads and Fertilizer Allegations – Adeleke’s Spokesperson


OSOGBO- 29/06/2024 –

Osun Masterminds is very weak on research and still laced with partisanship in its assessment of the performance of Osun State government, the Spokesperson to the Osun State Governor, Mallam Olawale Rasheed has disclosed.

Responding to the press conference by the group, the Spokesperson said fertilizers from the federal-state programme started arriving in Osogbo late Thursday. The Ministry issued a statement on Friday announcing the arrival with more trucks still coming in as at the time of filing this report.

How do you start sharing fertilizers that are still arriving in the state? What better way to be transparent than the statement from the state government on arrivals including the number of trucks?

We note that the group is being mischievous and partisan as usual as it still finds it hard to abandon its old root as an appendage of the opposition during the pre-2022 election.

Another example of the group’s hypocrisy is the reference to Dele Yes sir road. The Iwo – Osogbo road was awarded to Peculiar Ultimate Concerns by former Governor Gboyega Oyetola. The project is still ongoing and the contractor has done only about 30 percent of the job.

As an inherited project, the state government has been monitoring the execution of the project for quality assurance and the contract cannot be terminated unless there is concrete proof of infraction. Any termination based on hearsay and political allegations may land the state in costly litigation.

The state government is enforcing the highest level standard on the ongoing constructions across the state including the Lameco-Okefia dualisation and flyover bridges. So far, there is no evidence, technical or otherwise of any work under the infra plan being substandard. The government has zero tolerance for substandard work and we affirm that the projects are being supervised by top quality and certified engineers.

The public knows the administration will investigate any genuine complaints. All previous complaints were investigated and they were found to be baseless and more of political taunts. The administration noticed that criticisms from groups like Masterminds are borne out of political partisanship and confusion occasioned by the widely acknowledged good performance of Governor Adeleke.

As much as the administration welcomes feedback and genuine criticisms, the government will not succumb to blackmail and busybody political attacks. It is time for Masterminds to join the political process and stop fronting for the defeated club of yesterday.

Spokesperson to the State Governor
