“The way some people especially the PDP think is very embarrassing. Do they have the moral standing to say our government is a failed one? No. They simply do not have the clue on how to run government. To them, the best way to run a good government is the payment of salaries alone and neglect the other sectors of the society which are equally important in the development of the entire state as a whole.”

 

The outgoing Governor of Osun State, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, on Thursday, slammed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for criticizing its government, saying it lacks the moral right to do so.

Aregbesola, who is said to have despite all challenges bothering on attempts to smear his image as a state governor, is now acknowledged as the first governor to open up Osun State for real development.

He chided the PDP for being bereaved of ideas on how to run any government, even as he described the opposition party as clueless.

The governor spoke in Osogbo at the launch of the ‘State Of Osun Development Plan (2019-2028)’ put together by the Ministry of Economic Planning, Budget and Development.

Governor Aregbesola said: “The way some people especially the PDP think is very embarrassing. Do they have the moral standing to say our government is a failed one? No. They simply do not have the clue on how to run government.

“To them, the best way to run a good government is the payment of salaries alone and neglect the other sectors of the society which are equally important in the development of the entire state as a whole.

“Osun in spite of the lean economic resources it is facing has been rated the state with the best in terms of tax payment, least poverty state in the country, the least misery hit state in the country, and our state is the state with least number of unemployment in the country.

“And some people are sitting down somewhere saying our administration is a failed one, I wonder why they reason in that manner. In terms of good governance, Osun ranks among the best in Nigeria.”

In a welcome address, Commissioner for Economic Planning, Budget and Development, Dr Olalekan Yinusa said the success of any society is hinged on the strength of the economy.
