Dr John Kolawole, an expert in Political Sociology & Conflict Management, has labelled the government of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of Osun State, as the weakest in the history of the state. Dr. Kolawole revealed this in a press release on Monday which he titled: ‘Osun in disarray; an urgent call for action.’
He claimed that several developments around the state for the past two years have defined the Governor as a weakling with impractical professionals and politicians around him. He said that the incompetence in the governor’s chamber has affected many achievement made by the past Government in the state. He therefore urged critical stakeholders to look into and save the situation.
“This Oyetola is obviously bereft of ideas about governance and impeccable administrative strategy, to make matter worst, he further displayed naivety by surrounding himself with people with lesser cognitive strength and professional savvy.
“This Governor’s pattern of appointment is directly proportional to his intelligence quotient. How could a man of that social status surrounded himself with mediocre out of illogical sentiment, thereby putting the state into serious jeopardy.
“You are approving an appointment of a wife as a Personal Assistant to her husband who is an Attorney General of the state. This is indeed very strange and unbelievable.
“The security of the state is in unprecedentedly sorry state, as the state is presently in Hobessian state of nature, where life is short, poor and nasty. Unlike previous administrations, Oyetola appointed his like as Special Adviser on Security, who remains inertia when cultists and kidnappers have taken over the state, killing and maiming at will.
“Look at how Governor Seyi Makinde deceived the Governor and the two elements he appointed as SA and Commissioner in charge of education, to get the sole ownership of LAUTECH and reneged the so-called agreements they ignorantly signed,” he said.
He further criticized government’s decision on the ongoing construction of Ola-Iya bridge, describing it as a misplaced priority, thereby citing that the area with urgent intervention is Oke-fia area of the metropolis.
