The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has claimed that Governor Ademola Adeleke’s government has suffered another predictable setback due to an ongoing audit of state employees.
The APC added that it felt bad for the state employees in Osun because of the consultant’s treatment of them during the audit.
On Friday in Osogbo, APC state chairman Tajudeen Lawal made the announcement.
Lawal questioned why the state governor was unable to complete a staff audit and suggested that the failure was due to Adeleke’s lack of the skills necessary to be an effective governor.
Successful occurrences in the corridor of power in Osun State since November 27, 2022 are indicators that Governor Adeleke has nothing to give the state, and is instead just interested in the glitz of the governor’s office at the expense of the state’s improved fortune.
The word of a gentleman is his bond. Has Governor Adeleke forgotten his campaign promise to pay all back pay to retirees and current employees within the first six months of his administration?
In response to Adeleke’s failure to deliver on promises made to government employees and retirees, Lawal said, “It is worthwhile to make a remark that with the promise and fail attitude of Governor Adeleke to the request of the active government workers and the pensioners, the immediate-past Governor Gboyega Oyetola has been vindicated.”
Meanwhile, the Osun branch of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been attacked by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, which the PDP claims seeks to utilise the issue to get back into the public eye.
According to a statement released by PDP state chairman Sunday Bisi, the APC’s professed compassion for public personnel is all talk and no action.
Bisi, in defending the governor, also said that Adeleke is dedicated to helping workers in the state.
He reaffirmed that the PDP-led administration would press ahead with reforms to increase transparency and accountability in government.
The APC’s remark in Osun was just the latest example of the party’s deceitful tactics to trick employees into thinking it cares about them.
But the truth is clearly embedded in its record; APC has never served the well-being of the civil servants, and the grief and suffering it has caused them over the years will never be forgotten.
Workers in Osun, who have endured years of horrific treatment at the APC’s hands, have said, “For the umpteenth time, the APC must stop pretending to be what it is not.”
Workers and residents of Osun may attest to the sincere initiatives taken by Governor Adeleke’s administration to enhance the quality of workforce services in the state, initiatives that will be bolstered by the ongoing audit.
Civil servants in the state, angered by the personnel audit ordered by the Adeleke administration, walked out of their offices on Thursday, as reported by the media.
Workers reported that the consultant hired by the state government mistreated them.
In a fast response, however, Governor Cuomo ordered the state’s Head of Service to investigate the matter after hearing about it from Olawale Rasheed, his official spokesman.
