The party, in a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Kunle Oyatomi, on Wednesday, said lies against Aregbesola would not stop him from performing his duties.
The APC also enjoined the media to always seek the truth and propagate facts so that the public would not be misled.
The party was reacting to an article written by Prof. Niyi Akinnaso which was published on Tuesday, July 21, 2015, entitled, ‘Aregbesola and Osun: From billions to millions.”
The party described the publication as the most factual piece on the financial crisis rocking Osun State.
The statement read, ‘Facts in the article showed that the economic crisis in Osun was as a result of a reckless, profligate style of the Peoples Democratic Party government in Abuja that collapsed the country’s economy.
“The writer observed that it was a masterpiece of socio-economic wisdom that Aregbesola could still reach the level of development he achieved before the crash in spite of the fact that every kobo earned by the state was used for recurrent expenditure from 2012 to 2014, incurring a deficit of N2bn in the process.”
