Investigate Aregbesola’s 8 years financial activities in Osun – Pensioners task Buhari, EFCC

Forum of Osun 2010/2012 pensioners has called President Muhammodu Buhari to constitute a panel of investigation into financial activities of 8 years administration of Former Governor Rauf Aregbesola in the State.

They alleged the minister of Interior of mismanagement of the resources during his tenure as Governor of Osun State which they claimed was the reason for the paucity of fund in the state.

They also want the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC, to consider for action, various petitions written against Aregbesola and submitted to it.

The forum made the call on Friday during a peaceful protest in Osogbo to press home their demands.

They claimed that the financial burden passed on to the incumbent Governor, Gboyega Oyetola by the last administration was too huge on him.

The forum therefore, called on the federal government to come to the aid of Osun State government to be able to meet up with its financial responsibility as it concerns payments of gratuity and pension arrears.

This they said would avoid a face-off between pensioners and the state government because the payment of their gratuity and pension arrears is a must.

The protesters said they staged the protest at the location, having heard about a visit of Aregbesola who they claimed he refused to pay their gratuity and pension arrears before exiting office two years ago.

The visit of Aregbesola on the day of second anniversary of the incumbent to Osun State for celebration of 10 years of progressives government in the State had in the recent time rented the air and criticised in some quarters before it was cancelled to avoid clash of interest.

The pensioners condemned the purported plan by the former governor to celebrate 10 years of progressive government.

The senior citizens however appealed to Governor Oyetola to find a way around to pay their gratuity and 30 months accumulated half pension arrears he inherited from his predecessor.
