Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi has differed from the claims made by Governor Ademola Adeleke that Adegboyega Oyetola incurred the debt of N407 billion on Osun State.
Oluwo addressing the meeting of Osun State Traditional Rulers meeting which had the attendance of Governor Adeleke who presented the debt profile of Osun State to the monarchs.
According to Oba Akanbi, “God has done what he wishes by making you(Ademola Adeleke) the governor of Osun state. When Governor Adeleke was stating the debt profile of Osun, I saw sincerity in him. The country I was living before coming to Osun there is accountability in government.
“The monarchs aside Ooni are suffering and hungry. What Ooni give to the monarchs is what they are surviving on some paramount rulers are collecting N90000 while others Obas collect N10,000.
“Since you said what you presented today is from the Accountant-General don’t discard it, if somebody has done these question him, give room for fair hearing. I don’t want to jump to conclusion, but I know Oyetola cannot do such but if he has done so according to what was presented today the former governor should tell us. We deserve to know the truth.”
Similarly, Olowu Kuta, Oba Adekunle Oyelude charged Adeleke not to be distracted by the debt profile of the state.
His words: “Don’t be distracted face governance, your hundred days in office is counting your success is what Is important to us you know those who did what you stated today are now in opposition you can give this fact to your party to be tackling them while you face governance you have mission and blueprint that you work with. If you want to stand by the debt profile we presented today you would not do anything.”
