Osun PDP Laments The State’s Low Allocations, Asks FG For Explanation

Ogbeni-Rauf-Aregbesola

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Osun State yesterday urged the federal government to open up on the financial status of the state and why it has been getting least allocation in the last six months.

In a statement issued yesterday by its publicity secretary, Prince Diran Odeyemi, the Osun PDP said “Rather than keep on shielding Governor [Rauf] Aregbesola, the Ministry of Finance and Debt Management Office (DMO) and other relevant agencies of government must explain to Nigerians why Osun got a paltry N6.2 million out of N2.4 billion due to the state”.

It would be recalled that Osun got N6.2 million as federal allocation for the month of February, which led to speculations that workers’ March salaries may not be paid.

However, the state government allayed fears over the development on Sunday, saying despite the paltry allocation, it would still fulfil its financial obligations to civil servants in the state.

Mr. Odeyemi said the actual debt status of the state should be publicly displayed and the terms of repayment must also be disclosed to lay to rest the growing apprehension among the people of Osun state at home and abroad.
