‘My critics are angry because of my role in Jonathan’s defeat’ -Aregbesola

The Osun State governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has claimed that those in the opposition are capitalizing on Osun’s financial crisis to get back at him as a result of the role he and the state played in the defeat of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

He made this remark over the weekend in Ipetumodu, Osun State, at a reception organized in honour of the Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina.
Insisting that Osun State was not the only state where workers were owed salaries, Aregbesola alleged that the opposition had taken advantage of the opportunity presented by the financial crisis to unleash hate campaigns against him in the media.

According to him, “Every objective-minded Nigerian should pause to ask the pertinent question: Is Osun the only state which owe workers’ salary?

“The apparent answer is no. More than 22 states found themselves in this crisis.

“The reason Osun is always in the news is not far to seek. I make bold to say that some individuals in the state are deliberately sponsoring hate campaigns against the state because of my government’s role in the ‘Project Change’ that led to the downfall of their party during the general elections.

“It is not news again that our state contributed to the defeat of their Party and leader.

“What they did is to latch on to the general financial crisis to wage a war of attrition against Osun Government in the media. All the bad portrayals of Osun have their root in our opposition to Jonathan,” he stated
