Before Aregbesola hoodwink us again

As legislators at both National and State assemblies from Osun State gather like minds tomorrow to fashion out ways of ending financial mess in the state.

We will advise them to read our article tagged "Government Profligacy: A case study of Osun State" before attending the event.

Here is excerpt from the article, '...according to a Chinese proverb, fool me once shame on you, fool me again shame on me...'. Aregbesola claimed he received N19.3b as allocation for 2014 from Federal Government when that was what he received as total amount from January to June of same year.

This is just one out of many lies awaiting them tomorrow.

Beside, except these organisers want to be economical with the truth or are they pretending to be unaware when the Governor was taking loans in same pace with Lagos State forgetting that Lagos IGR is times 30 of his state. For instance, a state that took loan to plant flowers on highways, spent 3 months allocation on OPON IMO alone and other white elephant projects should not be difficult to find herself in this mess.

Even as it stands today, N18b is earmark for 19 agencies under office of the Governor alone in 2015 budget.

Let the organisers be aware that posterity will judge them if tomorrow will just be a mere tea party to vindicate the Governor.
