Osun Not Among Indebted States – Osun Assembly


State House of Assembly of Osun has taken those who are blackmailing the government on debt profile of the state to task on the report of Fiscal Responsibility Commission (FRC) released on Thursday, noting that the report was detailed enough on indebted states excluding Osun.

Speaker Najeem Salaam in a statement issued by his media office in Osogbo commended Governor Rauf Aregbesola for driving his six point integral action plan with financial surgery which gives the state clean bill of health, saying that the new fact has divorced wishful thinking of the opposition from reality check.

“We, the lawmakers at the state House of Assembly, have always been saying that Osun is not heavily indebted as being painted by some cynics, and none of the Federal agencies has mentioned Osun on debt issue, but the opposition that has phobia for research insisted that Osun is in huge debt. I hope that the new report of Fiscal Responsibility Commission will put the cynicism to rest.”

Besides, Speaker Salaam has drawn attention of the people of the state to the new status of Osun among the other component units of the federation, asserting that it was a good news that the state under the watch of Aregbesola has become a reference point at just concluded National Economic Summit in the areas of good governance, lowest unemployment rate, and infrastructural development index.

Speaker Salaam then urged the people to continue to support an administration that is bringing glad tiding to the people and the state, saying that Osun is experiencing resultant effects of new order brought about by Aregbesola’s administration.
