Adeleke berated for renovating Govt House with N1b amid hardship

Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke has been berated by All Progressives Congress (APC), for refurbishing Government House with alleged N1billion.

Governor Adeleke had last Saturday opened the newly-rehabilitated Government House in Osogbo with top officials and dignitaries joining him for inspection of the facilities.

A statement by Adeleke’s spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, said “the rehabilitation covers the main house, the completion of an abandoned multi-bedroom guest house, remodelling of many of the structures, refixing of many derelict facilities and facelift of the entire Government House.”

Reacting, APC through its state Chairman, Kola Olabisi, yesterday described the inauguration as a misplaced priority.

He said: “It is a shame that Governor Adeleke could be involved in flaunting the Government House rehabilitated with N1billion in this austere period and when Osun State has been declared the corporate headquarters of poverty in Yorubaland.”
