EFCC Investigates Aregbesola Over Diverted LG Funds

The Economic and financial crimes commission is currently investigating governor of osun state, Rauf Aregbesola over the diversion of local government funds.

A petition was written by the Civil Societies Coalition for the Emancipation of Osun State (CSCEOS) to president Buhari to order the EFCC to investigate Argbesola and his aides over the diverted funds.

The petition read;

“To affirm this illegality and unconstitutionality, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola suspended the democratic system in the constitutionally recognised 30 Local Government Areas of Osun State by appointing the grade level 14 local government staff as ‘council managers’ to man the council areas of the state instead of ‘democratically-elected chairmen and councilors’ as stipulated in Section 7(1) of the amended 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in order to give Aregbesola a leeway in the criminal diversion of local government funds.That the Federal Government, the National Assembly and its anti-graft agencies should investigate the acclaimed road projects embarked upon by Mr. Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola on behalf of the local government areas of the state without following the due process of the Public Procurement Act.

The violation of all due process in managing the public finances of Osun State by Mr. Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola has been seriously impacting negatively on the lives of the state masses including the state and local government local workers with their retirees alike.”

Akaninyene Ezima,Zonal head, EFCC Ibadan, has extended an invitation to the group for the clarification of some areas in the petition against the governor. Members of the group are expected to be at the EFCC office today, May 16th.
