Spokesperson to the governor, Mr Ismail Omipidan recently revealed this to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, claims by former Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs in the state, Hon Kolapo Alimi that Governor Oyetola nominated three ministerial nominees and without that of his predecessor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola are clearly false.
He added that the rumours could’ve been easily ignored, but sometimes it is best to set things straight.
His words, “Ordinarily, one would have ignored the deliberate and wicked lie from Alimi, but one is compelled to react to put the record straight for the sake of posterity.”
“First, if you all recall, it was public knowledge that President Buhari, said since he does not get involved in the appointment of commissioners in the various states, the governors would not dictate to him, who to appoint from their states.”
“Also, on my honour, my boss was at no time contacted either by the Presidency or any other quarters to either suggest names or nominate ministers.”
“I will, therefore, implore Alimi to cross-check his facts well and stop lying shamelessly against my boss. He is just out to smear the name of a good man and create acrimony between my boss and his brother, our former Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola. But Osun people know better.”
“It is the likes of Alimi that are trying to create issues in the party through the deliberate spread of false claims and lies to cause acrimony and unnecessary tension within the APC fold in Osun.”
