Osun State Governor has accused Dotun Babayemi, a former member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the state of being ignorant of governmental process.

The Governor, in a statement signed by his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, on Wednesday, said the former PDP member has been in political oblivion for long and cannot grasp the beehive of activities the Bola Ige House, the Governor’s office, has become since Governor Adeleke assumed office.

“With several events, including state executive meetings and the ongoing treasury board meetings held at the government secretariat, Babayemi is deep in the wilderness thereby unable to comprehend the amazing positive development the Adeleke administration has brought to Osun.

“The expelled party member is equally in the dark as to the ongoing transformation of the Government House where the Governor even recently hosted the outgoing state police commissioner.

“We affirm that the machinery of government is running efficiently from relevant government offices and more importantly, the Governor stays late in the renovated White House to conclude serious state matters on several occasions.

“The style and approach of Mr Governor is producing amazing results as evidenced in a series of accolades even from those who previously backed the failed usurper, Babayemi during his desperation to steal the governorship mandate,” he said.

Adeleke advised Babayemi to own up to his many treachery against the party and the government that was popularly elected by the voters of Osun State if he wants to be reabsorbed into the party.

“In any case, the government of the people by the people and for the people doesn’t need uninformed opinions from a man still in a political dark room and who is as yet incapable of figuring out the new reality of his abode in the political wilderness,” the statement concluded.

Babayemi had on Wednesday in a radio interview in Ilesa urged Governor Adeleke to relocate to the Government House and stop running activities from his private residence in Ede.

The former Osun PDP chieftain lamented how the state and party affairs were run in private residences outside the state capital.

According to him, “The administration in the state is almost a year old, yet, it is unclear if any of the government decisions has been taken in the government house or office, this is not good for the image of the state.

“The State Governor should relocate to the official Governor’s residence to make governance more effective and efficient.”

Babayemi, a former Osun PDP gubernatorial aspirant was expelled by the party in the aftermath of the 2022 Osun gubernatorial election for alleged anti-party activities.
