Activist Faults Osun Government’s Integrity Tests On Mega Schools, Says Move A Ruse, Political Vendatta

A civil rights activist and Executive Chairman of Centre for Human Rights

and Social Justice (CHRSJ), Comrade Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman has taken a

swipe at Osun State Governor, Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola, describing his

government purported integrity test on the Mega Schools built across the

State as a ruse and nothing but politics of hatred to score cheap political


Comrade Sulaiman who warned the state government to stop politics of

bitterness and hatred against his immediate predecessor in office, Ogbeni

Rauf Aregbesola saying Oyetola was a prominent part of the eight years

government of pains and pangs that the people of the state went through.

According to the activist in a statement he issued in Osogbo at the

weekend, Oyetola was a decision maker of the then government, noting that

if the governor has the desire to carry out maintenance works on the

schools,he should not make any noise about it because both of them are

guilty of shoddy infrastructures being put in place in the State then.

Sulaiman pointed out to Oyetola that his new friend and current Senator

representing Osun Central Senatorial district,Mr. Ajibola Bashiru was the

then Defacto Deputy Governor to Aregbesola.

He disclosed that Governor Oyetola should stop claiming ignorance of all

the policies of Rauf Aregbesola government before the right thinking good

people of the State.

The rights activist also warned Oyetola to stop pretending as a saint,

recalling that the office of the former Secretary to the State

Government,Alhaji Moshood Olalekan Adeoti, was relegated to background

then, in order to give Oyetola’s unconstitutional office(Chief of Staff), a

major stake where important decisions were taken in the immediate past


He wonders why Oyetola,  a major decision maker and taker became a turncoat

, adding that, pretence of Oyetola and members of his cabinet today, on the

most of the decisions taken by Aregbesola’s government, would not be

accepted by the good people of Osun State.

According to him, “If Oyetola has personal grievances to settle with Mr.

Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola,he should not touch the radio station,I mean,

Government of Rauf Aregbesola because Oyetola was a decision maker and

taker in the area of construction of Mega Schools, payment of half pensions

and salaries, reclassification of schools and others,where some of Oyetola

aides today,were promoters of those acclaimed Aregbesola bad policies

then.It is because some of them lack what we called shame,they are supposed

to bury their faces in shame.”

“All the hullabaloo and the campaign of calumny against Aregbesola

government are because of the forthcoming 2022 Governorship Election in the

State, just to pretend to the good people of the State that he was not part

of all decisions being taken by Aregbesola’s Government because people of

the State are still nursing the injuries sustained during Aregbesola

administration till date and furious against the present government in the

State because Oyetola administration is an offshoot of Aregbesola’s


” I am surprised to hear the word  ‘integrity’ from the administration of

Governor Isiaka Adegboyega Oyetola, the Government that has no respect for

rule of law and wishes of the people. For instance, when the respected

Comrade Amitolu Shittu, was pronounced and appointed as Director General of

Osun Amotekun Security Network by Oyetola,until when the designation became

the subject of litigation from opposition, before the action was

reversed.Governor Oyetola was doing as if he did not have any knowledge of

what contained therein as regards to designation in law established

Amotekun in Osun State which he assented to after the passage by the State House of Assembly.

Sulaiman added that the Local Government administration in the State,

backlogs of 34 months pension and salary arrears, annual salary increament

and nominal promotions for State workforce and host of others,were nothing

to write home about under the nose of Governor Isiaka Adegboyega Oyetola

today, adding that the collection of sum of Three Thousand Naira( N3,000)

for obtaining of Teaching employment forms by the citizens of the

State,were contrary to the provision of the established labour law in


Sulaiman therefore,declared that the people of like-minds across the length

and breadth of the  State,would soon hold the powerful meeting on how to

rescue the State from the present government of deceit and deception so as

to save the State and her good people from further damages.
