Osun State governor, Ademola Adeleke has asked the members of four panels and committees he inaugurated on Wednesday to track looted public assets.
The governor gave the charge after inaugurating the panels in Osogbo, according to a statement issued by his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed.
He was represented by the deputy governor, Kola Adewusi, who decried the ”pillaging” of government assets.
”You must right the wrongs and discharge your mandates with a sense of urgency,” he charged.
”We assure the people that we will not back down on our resolve to stop all post-July 17 illegalities,” he said, referring to the panels’ added task of reviewing all government appointments made after 17 July.
Governor Adeleke pointed out that the state government has not sacked any worker on the Osun payroll.
”Those with issues to explain are those who entered the payroll after July 17,” he said.
The review panels inaugurated by the governor include the Staff Audit/Appointments/Promotion Review Committee (chaired by Dr. Muyiwa Oladimeji), the State Assets Inventory and Recovery Committee (chaired by B. T. Salam), the Contracts/MoU/Agreements Review Committee (chaired by Niyi Owolade) and the Chieftaincy Affairs Review Committee (Chaired by Bunmi Jenyo).
