Enough of your baseless allegations please
No plan to convert SDGs facilities in Iragbiji to a soccer camp
Osun Government warns former Governor Oyetola
We are constrained,to clear the air again, on allegations made by some youths in Iragbiji under the aegis of Iragbiji Youths Development Association,which, to our consternation, the immediate past governor of Osun state, now a Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Mr Adegboyega Oyetola revisited over the purported conversion of the Social Development Goals Skill acquisitiin Centre in Iragigbi to a camp ground of Osun United Football Club.
As a matter of fact, it disturbs ones imagination that a former governor of a state like Osun sees such a matter as a fertile opportunity to whip up unnecessary political sentiments.
The present administration of Senator Ademola Adeleke will never be a party to anti development for the people of Iragbiji
For the knowledge and understanding of Mr Oyetola, barely less than two days when the allegations reared up its ugly head, Osun state Government swung into action through the state Deputy Governor, Prince Kola Adewusi, alongside the officials of SDGs by paying a visit to the palace of Aragbiji of Iragbiji, Oba AbdulRasheed Olabomi to provide the correct perspectives of the matter.
Prince Adewusi,at the palace assured the monarch that the use of the Centre for skill acquisitions will continue to remain the top priority of Ademola Adeleke administration.
Osun state government also declared that the housing of the Osun United Football Club in the Centre is a temporary arrangement .
We, therefore still find it totally disturbing and uncalled for that Mr Oyetola as a special guest at 2023 Iragbiji day celebration will use it as opportunity to fan embers of bad blood by raising the baseless and already settled matter .
We wish to reiterate our strong resolve that Osun state Govt under the leadership of Senator Ademola Adeleke will continue to have relevant and constant engagement with all stakeholders in Iragbiji to ensure that the people of the town are, in no way, shortchanged about the original purpose for the establishment of the SDGs funded Skills Acquisition Centre in Iragbiji.
For the benefit of hindsight as previously reported, the SDGs centres were not captured in the 2023 budget by the previous administration until Governor Ademola Adelekes administration made it a priority to refurbish and optimise the Centre for proper utilisation which has now been accordingly factored into 2024 budget presented before the Osun Parliament recently.
