Efcc closes in on Aregbesola for Diverting 7.6b Bond funds meant to build schools The operatives of the Economic and Financial Commission are investigating allegations of misappropriation of funds and abuse of office in Osun State.

Alaba Kolawole and Adeagbo Nurudeeen, respectively, on March 23, 2014, in relation with the ongoing probe involving contract awards running into billions of naira. A source at the commission said that the accountant general and the permanent secretary were interrogated in relation with alleged mismanagement and diversion of public funds. The source said that the money in question were proceeds from bonds accessed by the state government for the development of public infrastructure in the state. It was gathered that the two top government officers were granted administrative bail, pending the outcome of the ongoing investigation. It was ...
Lol! Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola Takes Selfie Photo: Lolz! What do you guys think?
The Government of the State of Osun under the leadership of Governor Rauf Aregbesola will continue to provide for the needs of vulnerable children in the state in order to make life better and more meaningful for them.
Before it is too late in Osun WHEN Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola was proclaimed as the validly elected Governor of Osun State on November 27, 2010, majority of Osun State indigenes, including myself were happy that a new face of political leadership would replace Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola’s administration, the self- acclaimed Omoluabi of his era. As a matter of fact, former Governor Oyinlola is a gifted diplomat and well- cultured Prince from Okuku. In terms of humility, sense of humour, attentiveness and power of oration, Prince Oyinlola has never been found wanting. Unfortunately, about seven years of Oyinlola’s tenure as Executive Governor of Osun State could be summarily described as a fiasco. Funny enough, the Okuku Prince did not realise the true feelings of the majority until after he left the exalted political office. I want to remind our incumbent performing Governor Rauf Aregbesola about a popular Yoruba proverb that says “Oba mewa igba mewa, enikan ko le lo ile aye gbo”, (meaning, dif ...

OSUN PDP PRIMARY:WOLE OKE SAYS HE IS THE ONLY COOL-HEADED ASPIRANT, ASKS OMISORE, OTHERS TO STEP DOWN FOR HIM Posted by: olajohnson; date:April 03, 2014 As the preparations for the gubernatorial election scheduled for August 9, in Osun State hot up, one of the aspirants under the banner of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Hon Wole Oke, on Wednesday, pleaded with other three leading contenders in the party to step down from the race and endorse him as the PDP’s flag bearer, for the party to defeat the incumbent, Governor Rauf Aregbesola, at the poll. Those that Honourable Oke, a two term Chairman of the House of Representatives on Defence in the 5th and 6th National Assembly, wanted to step down for him are Senator Akinlabi Olasunkanmi, a former Minister of Youths Development; Senator Isiaka Adeleke, first Executive Governor of the State and Senator Iyiola Omisore, a former impeached Deputy Governor in the state. He spoke with newsmen briefly after a meeting with five-man electoral committee sent from ...

Why?
OSUN ASSEMBLY PASSES N234 Billion BUDGET State House of Assembly has passed the appropriation bill of N234, 420, 419 to law, tasking the executive arm of government to embark on revenue generation drive that would push the elasticity of the budget implementation to acceptable level. Speaking, Speaker Najeem Salaam stressed that the budget went through surgical operation of collective effort of all stakeholders, a situation that led to the change of figures earlier proposed by Governor Rauf Aregbesola. Speaker Salaam However lamented the geometric dwindling of monthly allocation from the federation account, noting that the excuses given by the Federal Government on the reduced allocation were suspect, unacceptable, and smacked of good governance. According to him: "The national coffer seems to have become an exclusive preserve of the few at the centre who feel the masses are contended with their obscene luxurious lives at the expense of the state, why the excuse of the stolen crude seems to be an escapist ...

HIKE IN PRICE OF OSUN SCHOOL UNIFORM - ALAGBADA FROWN AT TEXTILE DEALERS. Commissioner For Commerce, Cooperatives, Industry and Empowerment, Mr Ismaila Jayeoba- Alagbada has frowned at the violation of laws of the State Government of Osun by ‘the textile dealers in Iwo who illegally increase the price of school uniform in the state. The Commissioner said this while addressing the textile dealers of O’uniform in Jankara market in Iwo recently. He said it was embarrassing when he heard that a secondary school student in Iwo confronted Governor Rauf Aregbesola during his recent visit to the town about the illegal increment in price of school uniform.

STORIES FROM WEDNESDAY 29TH JANUARY, 2014 NEWSPAPERS THE NATION Page 8:- Osun employs 4,330 teachers · To spend N400m on WAEC fees The Osun State Government has employed 4,330 teachers to fill vacancies in public schools.

Ile-Ife Rejects Aregbesola’s Proposed Additional Council Bill The people of Ile-Ife, in Osun State have faulted the proposal for creation of additional Local Government Areas by Governor Rauf Aregbesola now before the state House of Assembly, saying that the approach adopted by the government lacked international application. Briefing newsmen in Ile-Ife yesterday, the President of Ife Action Council, a socio-cultural organisation, Mr. Lawrence Awowoyin noted that the rationale for creating Local Government Councils was purely for development. He maintained that the people of Ife have been badly treated in the proposed Executive bill. The Governor had last December sent a proposal for the creation of additional 27 Council Areas from the existing 30 Local Government Areas and Ife East Area Office, Modakeke-Ife to the state House of Assembly for approval. In the proposal only three additional Council Areas are proposed from the existing four Local Government Areas that make up Ifeland. For instance, Ife .. ...
Osun seeks approval to access N1.5bn housing loan OSOGBO — Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State has sought for the approval of the State House of Assembly to access N1.5 billion housing development loan offered by the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria, FMBN. This is contained in a letter written by the governor to the assembly, which was read at the plenary, in Osogbo, on Thursday, by the Speaker of the House, Mr. Najeem Salaam. In the letter, the governor said if the loan was approved, it would be used to build 342 housing units by the State Property Development Corporation, OSPDC. He said the houses would be sold to the contributors to the National Housing Fund, NHF, in the state public service. The Governor said his administration had deemed it worthwhile to accept the loan offer because of its benefits.

in Osun State - Special Adviser presents 2014 Budgetam just wondering where those who made noise over the Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo Iweala presentation of the 2014 to the National Assembly are now. Today in Osogbo, Osun State, Governor Rauf Aregbesola's Special Adviser on Budget and Economy Planning, Mr Abimbade Adebisi Adesina was the one who presented the State's 2014 Budget to the State House of Assembly. Minister presented PDP's Federal Budget and it was wrong, but a Special Adviser presented APC's Osun State Budget, there is nothing wrong in it abi? Apart from asking a mere Special Adviser to present the 2014 to the OSHA, Gov Aregbesola has also directed that all Local Council workers in the State from Level 14 and above be moved to the State Civil Service. The implication is that, from tomorrow, the most senior LG worker in Osun State will be a Level 13 Officer! Someone asked where Osun State NULGE is and I said...

Nigerian First ladies Are ‘Executive Prisoners’ – Sherifat Aregbesola - Wife of Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State, Sherifat, on Monday described all first ladies in Nigeria as ‘executive prisoners’ because they are forced to live a life imposed on them by virtue of their office. Although the Nigerian constitution does not recognize the title of first lady, reserved for spouses of state governors and the president, it has continued to thrive and most times the office receives government funding for its day-to-day activities. Mrs. Aregbesola, who spoke in an interview with newsmen before the end of the year party she organised for children in Osogbo, the state capital, said contrary to the belief that first ladies were ‘enjoying’, they had no freedom to live the way they liked. Sherifat noted that she, like her counterparts in other states across the federation, embark on some pet projects in order not to be idle throughout their stay at the various Government Houses. She said, “All fir ...

Omisore advises Aregbesola to reverse schools’ reclassification A former Osun State Deputy Governor, Senator Iyiola Omisore, has asked Governor Rauf Aregbesola to reverse the schools’ reclassification policy introduced by his administration. This came as traditional worshippers said the policy was a right step to reverse the rot in education in the state. Omisore, a Peoples Democratic Party stalwart, while frowning at the policy, noted that the state government would have comprehensively examined the initiative before inaugurating it. He made known this in a statement on Thursday. According to him, policies, especially education-related ones that affect millions of lives, need proper planning. Accusing the governor of using religion to divide the people of the state, Omisore said the action could cause crisis in the hitherto peaceful state. He said, “This is the time for all well-meaning individuals and peace-loving organisations in the state to prevail on the governor to reverse all his divisive .. ...

Governor Aregbesola Inaugurates Special Committee On Discipline In Public Schools A 27 man high-powered Special Committee on Discipline in Public Schools has been inaugurated to examine the moral decadence in the public schools in Osun. This step is in a bid to urgently arrest pockets of violence observed in some public schools across the state recently. Explaining why such Committee was put together, Governor Rauf Aregbesola said that recent mindless violence in public schools is worrisome and disheartening, considering the priority his administration is giving to education in the state. He described the recent violence in some schools as a major challenge in the middle and high schools which must be addressed before it spreads to the elementary schools. “The situation is so terrible to the extent that there is the need to declare a state of emergency on middle and high schools' education in the state of Osun if not in Nigeria as a whole. Population of the trouble makers may be minute, but such violenc ...
Panic And Confusion As Student Attacks Teacher With Machete. There was anxiety over the state of health of a teacher at the Osogbo Grammar School, Osun State, identified simply as Mr. Olamoyegun, on Thursday as a pupil of the Government Technical College in the town attacked him with a machete Although what led to the attack on the teacher was still sketchy, our correspondent, however, gathered that the pupil pulled a surprise attack on the teacher, making it impossible for him to defend himself. Some pupils of the OGS told our correspondent that the attacker, whose name had yet to be identified, attacked the teacher from the back and inflicted a deep cut on his head with the cutlass. One of the OGS pupils, whose name is withheld for security purpose, said, “I think the person that attacked Mr. Olamoyegun is a cultist. That is what everybody is saying here because he just sneaked behind our teacher and attacked him with the cutlass in his hand. He did not give Mr. Olamoyegun the chance to defend himself ...

controversies 1 days ago While supporters hail Governor Rauf Aregbesola, for transforming Osun State, his opponents describe his three years in office as a colossal waste of time and resources writes FEMI MAKINDE On November 26, 2010, the Court of Appeal sitting in Ibadan, declared Mr. Rauf Aregbesola winner of the April 14, 2007 Osun State Governorship election. The court’s pronouncement brought to an end a three and half year legal tussle over the rightful owner of the people’s mandate to govern the state. As a result of the verdict, the then governor, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, and the erstwhile ruling Peoples Democratic Party were forced to learn to play the opposition politics for the first time in a state the PDP had ruled for seven years. While many greeted the judgment with applause, others condemned it. Aregbesola served as the Commissioner for Works in Lagos State before his elevation. He left no one in doubt about his preparedness for the task ahead as he came up with a Six-Point Integra . ...

Aregbe is Breeding Child Thugs- PDP The Peoples Democratic Party has described allegations of its planning mayhem as a cover by Governor Rauf Aregbesola for his ongoing recruitment and training of child thugs through militant clubs in schools ahead of 2014 governorship election. " Nigerians already know that the APC government in Osun State is a fundamentalist,anachronistic and anarchist mastermind of political violence and the Governor a confirmed godfather of political thugerry. Security agencies should increase security surveilance on Governor Aregbesola and his key associates" the PDP said in a statement signed by the State Chairman of the party ,Alhaji Ganiyu Olaoluwa. The party said the said Club is headed by a known political thug and that the state governor has documented track records of planning,funding and implementing political thugerry as evidenced in the arrest and ongoing prosecution of 181 fake observers sponsored by Governor Aregbesola of Osun State .

The electoral act 2010 as amended stipulates that electioneering must start 90 days to voting However what is happening in Osun State negates this provision with billboards of Governor Rauf Aregbesola erected in every nook and cranny of the state as well as numerous jingles extolling the virtues of Ogbeni in clear contravention of the electoral act. What is more disturbing is that the Independent National Electoral Commission that All Progressives Congress is condemning over Anambra election seems to be indifferent to what is happening in Osun State. Regrettably, there is a resident electoral commissioner who cannot bark nor bite, thereby projecting INEC as a lame duck This is indeed a bad omen for 2015 election. -Tayo Sanni,
Christmas Galore: Osun Workers To Enjoy 100% Thirtheen Salary Increase Next Month Workers in the employment of the Osun government are to enjoy thirteenth salary next month- with an increase from 25% to 100%.

Traditional believers in Osun State yesterday asked Christians and Muslims to stop criticising the education policy of Governor Rauf Aregbesola on the reclassification and merger of public schools. The traditionalists, who spoke through their leader, Chief Kayode Esuleke, in a press conference in Osogbo, said: “We have observed the trend of the argument being canvassed against the new education policy by this set of people and we discovered that it is nothing but a mere hypocrisy and an attempt to sabotage Aregbesola’s efforts at improving education standard in Osun State. “We are not holding sway for the governor; needless to say we are being used by any political party. But as traditional believers whose doctrine is to say, follow and uphold the truth always, Olodumare will not forgive us if we keep quiet in the face of these unwarranted and ill-motivated criticisms from Muslims and Christians on Aregbesola’s education policy. “It has become the style to use religion to fight any government po ...

QUOTE OF THE DAY: BODE GEORGE ON TINUBU The debt portfolio of Lagos is unimaginable. God Will Not forgive These People. While Lagos Is getting broke, Bola Tinubu is getting Richer.I Went to his village in Iragbiji (Osun State)where he hailed from; He Said he went to Children's School & Government College Ibadan, I asked my junior friends who went to GCI, Ibadan, None of them knew him. What's his real name? Is his name Bola? What Is his family name? The Chief Of Staff to Governor Rauf Aregbesola is his blood Brother. He also has an older brother who retired from the Federal Ministry of Foreign affairs. When His real mother died, he didnt go to Osun State. I went to The Oba of Iragbiji, I said we were going to ship him back home. That was at the peak of the caampaign. They told me the primary school he attended, no secondary school, no- nothing. Suddenly He Came back and said he had a CPC,that's the equivaent of ACCA.He didn't even have an APC, he's a lier" ~ Yoruba Bode George!

Because the scheme took its initiative from Aregbesola’s Osun Youth Empowerment Scheme (OYES) and on the recommendation of the World Bank as a strong solution for the growing unemployment problem, the Osun Governor’s words were important.

UPDATES ON ASUU STRIKE. To Demolish Fakunle Comprehensive High School For Shoprite Mall. Alumni, parents and other education stakeholders in Osun State have begun to remove items they donated to Fakunle Comprehensive High School in Oshogbo, following allegations Governor Rauf Aregbesola plans to demolish the school and replace it with a “Shop Rite” mall. They allege there has been a long battle with the Aregbesola administration over the plan, saying that the governor is serving the interests of his political god-father, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to provide prime space for him to extend Shop Rite, a business he is said to own, to Oshogbo. An alumnus of the school told SaharaReporters that Mr. Tinubu’s interest is what is behind the troubles. “Of all locations in Osun State, only the center that Fakunle High school proudly sits on since over fifty years is what Tinubu wants. Why not develop other areas to stand his business?” alleged the Alumnus. In February, there were pockets of protest by sen ...
Osun State: Still on the Osogbo/Ikirun/Okuku/Ila Odo Road. It is pertinent to call on the Federal Government who is the Client incognito to please urge both his Main Contractor, i.e, Governor Rauf Aregbesola and the Sub- Contractor- Messrs SAMYA Construction Company to expedite action on this project. The slow spate of work on the road as may have been occasioned by the greed and corruption on the part of the assumable client, lack of professionalism and technical knowhow on the part of the Construction Company is inflicting further and more dangerous stress, sorrows and anxieties on the already strangulated people and the economy of the state capital. It is unfortunate that the Governor’s shameful attitude of lack of respect for time frame in everything could be extended to this road work. The road that he told us will be completed in 18months is not yet at 5% stage of completion after 12 months. Shame! A soldier’s word, they say, is his sword but never in the case of Aregbesola. Not even when he gre ...

As at today, they cannot march the resources accrued to their respective council areas with what they claimed to have done, they have brought shame and dwindling popularity to the mass that repose trust in the All Progressive Congress as a virile alternative. Gratitude to the Governor for bluntly combating the grasping spate of development that the hitherto government had plague on the state.

See my fellow youth do not. Believe this cos they all are liars do not allow anybody to use u but be prepared Osun State: SHAME,SHAME, SHAME….Aregbesola,it’s a Big Shame on you!!! Shame is an uncomfortable feeling that you get when you have done something wrong or embarrassing, or when someone close to you has. Shame is an important trait that every human must possess. The lack of it is a dangerous indication of doom. Governor Rauf Aregbesola does not strike me as somebody with the smallest iota of shame.

NGF crisis was planned -Aregbesola 2013-07-05 23:00:42 Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State has said that the crisis in the Nigeria Governors' Forum was orchestrated. Aregbesola spoke while responding to questions during his visit to PUNCH Place, headquarters of PUNCH Nigeria Limited, on Friday. He said the scenario that played out after the NGF election was premeditated. He said, "Some people deliberately wanted to discredit a process that had been proven to be very organised, peaceful and without rancour. "It takes two to tango and the best position is not neutrality. Look, let's call a spade what it is. I won't say more because I am a principal actor in the entire thing. "We all know what was wrong but I think we are timid to say it. We cannot use an orchestrated and deliberate smear to castigate all governors. We all know the interest behind what happened. If we are not courageous enough to apportion blame, let's be quiet. I rest my case." The governor said the South-West had not reneged on its purs ...

I will start by referring to a document which is the, six Integral Action Plan, which Mr. Governor used to contest election in 2007 and with which he won the election. His strategy is providing alternative solution to the problems facing the people. Mr. Governor has already coded his people oriented programmes into a book called the Green Book.

WHERE WILL LIE TAKE PDP TO ? Sometimes I laughed at the PDP antics to stage a come back to rule Osun. They concour lie and said negative things against God sent governor OGBENI. They engage in this kind of shameless act just to distract the attention of performing governor attention and to feed the member of the public with thier wicked lie. But the reverse is the case as thier aim do not materialise in Osun. The more they lie against the governor, the popular Omoluabi becomes in Osun and Nigeria @ large because Ise Oluwa ni, ko se da duro. I want to advise the jobless opposition in Osun to find another job or collect OYES form at the nearest centre so that they can benefit from Omoluabi initiative to alleviate people suffering as the game is now over and thier hope of ruling Osun in 2014 is dashed because Aregbe tenure has been extended till 2018 because of his performance in his first two years in office. They should shelve thier sword and embrace the lovely regim of OMOLUABI. God bless OMOLUABI FAMILY
Sahara news-Osun State Government Should Pay Retirees By Kola Ibrahim This is calling on the government of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola in Osun State to immediately commence the payment of outstanding pension and pension arrears of retirees in the state. Currently, some sections of the retirees have been processed without being paid a dime, while several others such as retirees from primary schools have not even been processed at all, thus putting their fate in the balance. Many of these retirees who have retired for more than six months now are struggling to survive, especially as the harsh economic situations, generated by the anti-poor, neo-liberal policies of governments at all levels, have continued to bite harder. If government is campaigning for virtuous behavior among its workforce, it should ensure that their lives after service are not made miserable through willful neglect by political officers. Many of these pensioners were forced to retire through a dubious policy introduced in 2009 by the defunct ...

AREGBESOLA LIED AGAIN!!! The nation newspaper on Monday quoted gov Aregbesola that he has constructed 900 kilometers of roads in Osun State in the last 30 months! The pertinent question to ask is, where in the state did Aregbe constructed those roads? Or did he add all d various uncompleted roads dat littered the state and the one he just awarded to RATCON few days ago? For the purpose of clarity, he should publish those roads he constructed and their location. Or maybe he constructed them in his imagination and not in Osun State.

In furtherance of his secret war against His Imperial Majesty,Oba Okunade Sijuade,the Ooni of Ife ,the ancient city of Ife and the people, Governor Rauf Aregbesola is currently re writing the history of the Yorubas. Should he succeed in this project, Ile Ife that enjoys the pride of place in history as the source of humanity and the Yoruba race will loose such pride. The toga of historical importance and relevance which the Ooni wears head high is currently threatened with destruction if Aregbesola should succeed in this destructive manipulation of history mission. It is no longer news that Aregbesola, on 31st May,2013 led his colleague Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State and Professor Wole Soyinka to Igbale Aiye community, said to be 450,000 years old, which is in Apotoku, Ketu (Commune de Ketou), Republic of Benin where Aregbesola insisted ...
Welcome, Opon-Imo; goodbye, Igba Aimo 9, 2013 As Osun people take ‘Tablet of Knowledge’, they should say ‘never again’ to PDP-type ignorance Even Chief Jeremiah Obafemi Awolowo would have turned in his grave on June 3, when Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State presented ‘Opon-Imo’, the magic computer tablet that his administration has been working on for quite some time, to the world, at a well attended ceremony in Ilesha, Osun State. Not a few persons have acknowledged, and rightly too, that since the introduction of free education in the defunct Western Region by the late sage, Chief Awolowo in 1955, ‘Opon- Imo’ remains the second most revolutionary project in education, not just in the geo-political axis, but nationwide. The point is that only the mischievous will see an elephant and say it seems they just saw something; when we see an elephant, we should say so. ‘Opon-Imo’ is a milestone. That explained why Nigeria literally stood still for Aregbesola when he launched the compute ...
World News: Nigeria Governor Wants to Improve State’s Education - VOA governor of Nigeria’s Osun State says his administration has been implementing measures to improve the quality of high school education in the state. As part of the effort, Governor Rauf Aregbesola says the state has provided all public high school students with free handheld digital tablets computers to help with their school work and also is rebuilding public sector elementary and secondary schools. “We are committed to human capacity development in all its ramifications, and if that is genuine then education must play a principal role,” said Aregbesola. “We just introduced a tool for learning called ‘tablet of knowledge.’ It is an electronic platform with three segments; the first segment is the E-library covering all the subjects being taught in the state. The second is the test segment, where you have 40,000 questions, and the third segment is where students have audio interaction with their teachers,” he said. Areg ...
Pls God continue to bless OFFA with your mercy's eyes. Governor Rauf Aregbesola ur rising stardom will never fall for making Osun State jus like Saud Arybia.
The launch of the computer tablet designed for all senior secondary schools students in Osun State by Governor Rauf Aregbesola turned into political campaign of sort signposting the beginning of 2014
The Osun State Government launched a Learning customized Tablet (Opo Imo) today. Governor Rauf Aregbesola said it will be used to tackle illiteracy in the state. Billions of Naira was spent to import "Opo Imo". Why not start with providing a conducive environment for them to learn in schools and upgrade the teachers? As far as am concern, the citizens of the state are living in abject poverty. He want the people to learn with their stomach empty. My question is, why is it that Government in Federal level and State have refused to invest in Mechanized Farming? They all want to depend on Crude but for how long will it last?
E-learning, digital learning is the way to go… ‘The education of our children and the overall development of our human capital is something that we can all agree on, irrespective of our political parties or platforms. We may disagree on the details or the how and where. But very few people would ask why we should give our children good quality education.. Education opened doors of opportunity for me and gave me what I have today. Only education can guarantee the future of our young people.." As a guest of the government of the State of Osun today, these were some of the remarks I made as I witnessed the launch of the trailblazing E-Learning initiative of Governor Rauf Aregbesola. The ‘Opon Imo’ or the Tablet of Knowledge is “a standalone e-learning tablet that provides senior secondary students with the learning materials required to prepare for school-leaving examinations.” E-Learning is very important to me - it is the future of academic learning.

When duty called for National Democracy Day Celebration 2013 a few days ago, hosted by Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR, Aminu Tambuwal (Speaker, House of Representatives) and Atiku Abubakar (former Vice President to Chief Olusegun Obasanjo), both holders of the 2nd highest national honours of Grand Commander of Order of the Niger (GCON), declined attendance. They both still claim they are 'card carrying members' of the PDP. And when an Islamist (mind the term, please) religious extremist Governor Rauf Aregbesola of 'State of Osun' of the opposition ACN, holds a state programme, the both attend with the criminal Bola Tinubu - all smiling like buffons. *What's the meaning of ingrate again? Or what do you say when an 'officer' of a republic abdicates his duties? *Negligence? When the PDP calls both men out, on anti-party activities, some deranged lunatics will term it 'political witch hunt'. Eyes dey look una o!
Osun State: AREGBESOLA AND HIS “OPON IMO”. Governor Rauf Aregbesola will continue in his war against both the Big and the Small Scale Entrepreneurs tomorrow as he launches the “Opon Imo”- a Computer Tablet on which several textbooks have been downloaded. Though, bound to fail in no distant future like many of his government programmes and policies but before then, the ”Opon Imo” will ensure it sends into ruins the businesses of Book Publishers and Bookshops operators in the state. Not a few of those that are into the businesses of book selling, book binding and so on will join the labor market like their counterparts in the business of selling School Uniforms which Emperor Rauf had earlier sent into the labor market with his introduction of same school uniform for all schools in the State. The list of small scale business entrepreneur’s early arrivals into the labor market courtesy of Mr. Raufu’s useless policies is not exhaustive. Prominent among them are the Motor Transport Operators wh ...

On job creation, the story is the same: in Rivers state, Jonathan promised to build a Petrochemical plant that will create jobs; the people are still waiting. It has been two years since he made that promise, but the realities on ground prove that he has only succeeded in further shrinking Nigeria’s dwindling middle class and worsening inequality. In fact, under his stewardship, unemployment in Nigeria has grown from about 21% in 2010 to an estimated 29.3% in 2012. Perhaps our president should learn from Osun State’s Governor Rauf Aregbesola who has succeeded in reducing unemployment from 14.3% in 2010 when he began presiding over affairs in the state to an estimated 3% in 2012!- Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai
A Must Watch VIDEO Of Voting And Counting At Governors’ Forum Election We now bring you an amateur footage of the May 24 Nigeria Governors’ Forum election (Watch the Video above) during which Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, was reelected chairman after he defeated his only challenger, Jonah Jang of Plateau State 19 votes to 16. A recording of the voting was done by a governor in the camp of Mr. Amaechi. With his mobile phone, Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun captured most of the proceedings of an election that featured intense maneuvering from governors on a clear divide, either in support or against President Goodluck Jonathan’ candidate, Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau state. The president has repeatedly denied having interest in who becomes the next chairman of the group, but that claim has been disproved by insiders and governors, and even the president’s body language. The footage documents how the 35 governors voted, the counting of votes and the declaration of result by presiding offi ...
We thank Governor Rauf Aregbesola for his covert video recording of the events that transpired inside the elections of Governors forum
I have watched this video of the election of the Nigeria Governors Forum. I had previously held the opinion that most of the characters serving as State Governors were Touts. Now I am convinced that some are actually criminals. It is clear that Osun State Governor (Rauf Aregbesola) , who was recording the event, and his Ekiti State counterpart (Kayode Fayemi) who was clearly one of a few accomplice to the criminal invasion of privacy which unlawful recording of private events could amount to, are not just touts but could actually be prosecuted for criminal acts, save for the bogus immunity accorded Governors under the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria. Who knows what other illegal tapings and recordings these characters are involved with? What the video has clearly shown is that some Governors at that event knew something that others did not know, the demeanor and mannerisms of Rauf Aregbesola, and his peers who were around him depicted some clandestine activities surrounding the said NGF elections, which the ...
Osun State: THE ODUA CHILDREN’S DAY 2013. There is no doubt that Governor Rauf Aregbesola and his Lagos highly dominated cabinet scored a landmark yesterday with that superb display of Calisthenics by our children. Also, his unprecedented efforts at bringing the Yoruba nation together caught many Yorubas including my humble self’s fancy to a great deal. Politics aside, only a *** that is “Omo Ale” will not appreciate such a wonderful one that we saw yesterday. So, I give my kudos to Aregbesola over this. But I salute mostly these good great children.The real children of Osun State that they are surely made us proud yesterday. They have proved a point to Governor Aregbe and the point they have expressly made known to the world. It may be consciously or unconsciously. They wrote several times in their display. ”We are the world” “We can make it together” and so on. These messages as passed by these Children were mainly, I suppose, for Aregbesola more than anyone else.. That the whole nu ...

Osun State Government celebrated Children's Day in grand style as thousands of school children and over 80 eminent traditional rulers from Yoruba speaking states and other parts of the world assembled Osogbo, the capital of Osun State for the event. The state governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola in his speech, noted that the Children's Day can be traced back to the 1925 'World Conference for the Well-being of Children' in Geneva. He said the event has since been adopted by most countries of the world as a special day set aside to honour children, to protect them and give them everything it takes to be what they are meant to be in life. According him, "In Nigeria, Children's Day, as we all know, is held on May 27 every year. It is meant to highlight the rights and needs of children - the need for love, care, affection, protection and nurture. It is also meant to underscore the right of children to material well- being, to education, to moral guidance and proper value orientation." "We are determined, that among t ...
Suspected Boko Haram members invade Osun .Over 40 of them discovered in Ikirun .Keep them safe, Osun Gov tells Akirun Just as the Federal Government intensified its onslaught against the Boko Haram extremists in the Northern part of Nigeria, indication has emerged that members of this deadly group are now in Osun State. West Mail learnt that these Islamists who are about 40 in number have fully been settled in Ikirun, the headquarters of Ifelodun Local Government. Already, concerned residents of Ikirun have called on security agents in the state to intervene as a matter of urgency because many of them now live in fear over the presence of these strange men. The suspected Boko Haram members according to investigation were first sighted two weeks ago at a mosque within the premises of Okanlawon Petroleum Station, Ikirun. West Mail gathered that when the owner of the filling station saw the men and their mode of dressings, he quickly alerted the town’s monarch, the Akirun of Ikirun, Oba Rauf Olayiwola Aded ...

Following the victory of Gov Amaechi in the just concluded election of chairman of NGF this evening, governors who are stooge to President Goodluck Jonathan as led by Godswill Akpabio have split from the Nigerian Governorship Forum and appointed their own chairman and vice chairman as Gov Jona jang and Gov Mimiko respectively. This is to show how desperate Jonathan and his men are. No wonder they did everything under the earth to frustrate Amaechi and Muscle him out of the race. let them continue their noise making. they will fizzle out in a matter of days. However, can you suggest a name for the Jonathans stooge governors forum. I think Otueke Governors forum or Dame Patience Governors Forum will be a good name for them. what do you think?

How could you then say that a man who failed woefully to keep people born as Muslims and given Islamic names but today are serious Christians? If I have not succeeded in retaining them as Muslims, where is the power to make those who are not even related to me Muslims? If I have failed completely, not even to Islamize, but to retain my siblings as Muslims, they are still my siblings and they are still very close to me, where then is the ability to Islamize the whole state? I mean, it is all Bunkum"

Oodua World Children Day: Promoting Youth Development and Cultural Heritage Across the world several initiatives have been targeted to ’Catch them young’. Youths are believed to be tomorrow’s leaders; hence the burden to equip and empower them to step in to the position of leadership and advance the course of civilisation is enormous. Wisdom therefore dictates that those saddled with position of authority opened up themselves to ideas and innovations that will propel the actualisation of this lofty goal, that is, ensuring that youths are fully developed and equip with skills and courage to make them run with vision of greatness and carry on with the baton of civilisation. Every people in all race and climes possesses a distinctive ingenuity capable of providing a catalyst for development, this distinctiveness is often rooted in the language, arts, culture and the world view of the people. Historically, Yoruba race, for instance, through works of Arts and archaeological excavation from Ile-Ife Osun s ...

Ondo State Need Transformation wrote: Aregbesola and the emerging new ‘state’ of Osun - Nigerian Tribune Osun State, known formerly as the state of the living spring, now state of the virtuous, was primarily a civil service community where there were few industries with most of the working population being mostly civil servants and business people. But, all that is due to change soon, if the recent developmental adjustments ongoing around various parts of the state are to be taken into consideration. Osun State had been known majorly as the home to the Obafemi Awolowo University (formerly University of Ile- Ife), the Osun Grove, Erin Ijesa waterfalls, the Esa- Oke Polytechnic, Micom Golf resorts and a few others. There wasn’t much more to it as side attractions and it was primarily a transit town between the South West and the North Central States.

31-year-old man receives 45 year sentenced without an option of fine for stealing Governor's phone
Man Sentenced to 45years imprisonment for Stealing Governor Rauf Aregbesola’s Phone
45 years for stealing a phone! What options before judiciary? By Abdul Fatah Omo Olofa There have been reactions - most of them misplaced or bordering on sheer sentiments and over-killing emotions - to the news about the jail terms handed down to the man, who stole Governor Rauf Aregbesola's phone. Because it involved the governor, whose phone was stolen, many were mistaken in their belief that the governor has a hand in the number of years of imprisonment given to the man. To these set of people, who are reacting, the argument is that 45 years is far more hash considering the thing stolen. Yours sincerely however, holds different opinion about this issue. In the first place, people must know that neither morality nor emotion has basis in law. Judges arrive at their verdict based on the preponderance of evidence available to their Lordships. In criminal law, once the committance of a crime has been established BEYOND REASONABLE DOUBT, judgment must logically follow - sometimes mild, sometimes hash dependi ...
For stealing a N50,000 Sony Ericsson phone belonging to Governor Rauf Aregbesola, a 31-year-old Kelvin Ighodalo has been sentenced to 45-year imprisonment by an Osogbo High Court. Ighodalo stole the phone from the pocket of Aregbesola on November 27, 2010, when the governor was being inaugurated at Government Technical College, Osogbo. Justice Oyejide Falola, who heard the case, found Ighodalo guilty on six counts, which included conspiracy, stealing and fraud. He was sentenced to 10-year imprisonment for the first three counts and five years for each of the last three which included impersonation, obtaining property by falsehood and collusion. Falola, who ruled that Ighodalo deserved the jail term, held that the convict used the phone to obtain N500, 000 from the Owa of Ilesa, Oba Adekunle Aromolaran, while he obtained N200, 000 from Mr Shengen Rahman, an associate of the governor. The jail term, which Falola pronounced will run concurrently, means that Ighodalo will spend the next 10 years behind bars. ...
