“I left more than N14bn for my successor,” – Oyetola, Osun’s outgoing governor


Outgoing governor of Osun, Gboyega Oyetola has declared that he left N14 billion in the state’s coffers for his successor, Sen. Ademola Adeleke.

Oyetola boasted that his administration did not borrow any money from anywhere to finance the state’s economy, stressing that he kept the faith and maintained fidelity to his electoral promises throughout his tenure.

In his farewell message released by his media aide, Ismaila Omipidan, Gboyega Oyetola wrote:

“In addition to the N14 billion cash, another N8 billion is being expected between December and January 2023 from our performance in States Fiscal Transparency, Accountability and Sustainability programme (SFTAS) and from Internally Generated Revenue.

“We are leaving behind a cash balance of more than N14 billion.”

We benefitted from the N3 billion monthly interventions by the Federal Government to all the states for six months to cushion the effect of deductions of budget support facility and salary bailouts taken by the previous administration.

“We paid N97 billion from the total debt we inherited in 2018,’’ he stated.

Former governor, Gboyega Oyetola added that the state was also expecting 72 million dollars from other programmes and from the NG-CARES programme of the Federal Government, among others.

“These are earned, based on performance.And we have indeed performed to earn them,’’ he said.
