S/West PDP Decries Aregbesola's Refusal To Appoint Head Of Service, Perm Secs.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-West has decried the refusal of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) governor of Osun State, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola to appoint a Head Of Service (HOS) and Permanent Secretaries in the State.

The asked well meaning Nigerians to prevail on Governor Aregbesola to stop running Osun State like his private estate, and respect the laws of the land.

The PDP said it was an aberration and outright illegality that Governor Aregbesola will also alongside his functions as a governor, be performing the functions of Commissioner for Works while his Deputy, Laoye Tomori holds the office of the Commissioner for Education in addition to her position as the Deputy Governor.

According to a statement issued today by the PDP Zonal Publicity Secretary, Hon. Kayode Babade, berated the government for not having Head of Service since the immediate past HOS, Mr. Segun Akinwusi retired two months ago, and no Commissioners for Works and Education since Aregbesola became governor 22 months ago while there are only six Permanent Secretaries left in the State Civil Service.

Quoting section 192, 193 and 195 of the 1999 Constitution, the PDP described as flagrant abuse for not appointing a single commissioner until August 12, 2011, eight months after he became governor

The PDP, which wondered why Aregbesola is obsessed with the Works Ministry, said the governor seems obsessed with the Works Ministry having been in that ministry since 1999 that he was appointed in Lagos State by former Governor Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
