Immediate past Governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola, has advised his successor, Governor Ademola Adeleke to take time to study past handover notes and acquaint himself with records of happenings of other administrations so he is guided appropriately
He said there was an existing law in the state duly passed by the House of Assembly, okaying usage of the used vehicles by him, his deputy, and other public officials.
He said contrary to the claim by the Osun State government, he does not have 11 vehicles, insisting that the used vehicles he left with, were not only properly documented, but done in line with the extant law and best practices.
Oyetola spoke through his media aide, Ismail Omipidan, yesterday following criticisms trailing the release of vehicles to public officials who served in his administration.
“The current deputy governor, the SSG, Alhaji Teslim Igbalaye, and the Chief of Staff, Alhaji Kasim Akinleye were all beneficiaries of similar gestures in the past as they left with their used vehicles when they served as chairmen of their various councils under the PDP administration. This gesture is enjoyed by both the judicial and the legislative arms of government as well,” he said.
Omipidan said the Osun governor’s spokesperson’s release on the alleged carting away of government vehicles was full of lies and misinformation, deliberately put together to malign the person and character of Oyetola.
He wondered how he came about the value of N2.9 billion as the total worth of the used vehicles, insisting that the amount was unrealistic, misleading, and false and cannot represent the true value of the used vehicles.
He said several of the vehicles alleged to have bee carted away were still in the possession of the state government.
