The Peoples Democratic Party on Tuesday , warned ex -governor Rauf Aregbesola to stay away from the state to prevent a breakdown of law and order .
A statement by the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party , Diran Odeyemi , made available to newsmen , in Osogbo , also appealed to security agencies to be on the alert to forestall a breakdown of law and order .
Odeyemi said Aregbesola’ s visit had exposed Oyetola and Aregbesola ’s strained relationship .
He cautioned that rather than come to Osun for any celebration , the ex -governor should endeavour to let the residents enjoy their peace .
The PDP stalwart also claimed there was no concrete achievement recorded in the state during Aregbesola ’s reign , insisting that the proposed visit was a ploy to cause mayhem .
The statement read in part , “ It is more than mere coincidence that Rauf Aregbesola decided to mark 10 years of his administration on the very day his successor Oyetola wanted to celebrate his 2 nd year administration . It is obviously meant to test power and popularity with the use of thugs and hooligans .
“ What is he coming here to celebrate ? Where is MKO International Cargo Airport where over N 3 billion was spent by Aregbesola? What is good in his administration that Aregbesola left over N 200 billion debt according to the National Bureau of Statistics as at November 2018 when he left government ?
“ Under Aregbesola for eight years, civil servants were not promoted , local governments were fraudulently forced to operate parliamentary system just as we want to ask about ‘ O Reap, ’ ‘ O -Hub , ’ ‘O -Fish, ’ ‘O pig ’ all of which are failed promises used to syphon Osun ’s allocation.
“ Aregbesola also bastardised the educational sector by introducing single uniform, renaming of schools , mergers of institutions including reclassification against universal educational systems . For three years consecutively , Aregbesola spent over N 4bn by sending Osun people to Cuba , the advantage of which we still don’ t know in Osun state . ”
