‘I Remain the Duly Elected Governor of Osun State – O yetola

Published

on

Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola, on Saturday, said he is still the duly elected governor of the state regardless of Friday’s judgement of the state Election Petitions Tribunal.

He enjoined the public to disregard the insinuations that he had been sacked, saying he was confident of retaining his mandate at the appellate court. He spoke in Osogbo while inspecting some ongoing road and drainage projects in the state capital.

The governor said the outcome of the ‘lower court’ did not, in any way, affect the validity of the votes freely and willingly given to him by the people of the state. He said since the constitution allowed him to file an appeal against the judgement, he remained the legitimate governor of the state.
Oyetola said, “I am confident that our mandate will be reaffirmed at the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court. As you all know, it was a split judgement, telling us that it was not a unanimous decision. This is part of our strength at the appellate court.

. “I must correct the impression that I have been removed from office. I remain the governor of Osun up until all the electoral litigation is finalised. My visit to this site is in furtherance of our commitment to ensuring a better life for all residents of the state and to demonstrate that governance brought about by our government continues.”

No Community Should Be Asked To Pay For Transformers, Cables, Poles -Minister Warns Discos

“It is the responsibility of the distribution companies to provide transformers, cables and poles to communities so that power supply can improve.

“A situation where communities buy transformers, cables and poles must stop. I know that you have these centers but how effective are they to ensure that customer complaints are attended to?

“As a minister, I don’t want to hear news of communities being asked to purchase electric transformers, cables and poles. If the consumers are paying for the electricity, then it is the responsibility of the distribution companies to provide these items.

“There must be improvement in power supply. That is what the government planned to do. People should not pay for darkness. When people have a 24-hour power supply, they can pay double for electricity because you have saved them the money to power generators.

“We don’t want to hear the news of communities buying transformers, cables and poles for themselves again. The federal government frowns at it. You see what we have done in Kaduna. Service to our people is paramount. It is the responsibility that Mr. President has placed on us. You are not number one, two or three, you are struggling to be number four on the rating.” -Adebayo Adelabu, Power Minister At Meeting With IEDC Mgt
