The Civil Societies Coalition for the Emancipation of Osun State (CSCEOS) says it has “uncovered another tactics being employed by top officials of Osun State Government in sharing of sum of N120 million of the tax payers money inside the bush every month.”
The group claimed that its investigation revealed that the top four officials of the present administration in the state and the Labour leaders were in a shoddy deal that takes place inside the bush within the Government Reservation Area (GRA), Okefia, Osogbo in the state capital.
It also claimed that its “investigation further revealed that they were engaging in this act as a way to beat the anti-graft agencies officials intelligent in tracking down the looted funds and reports had it that most of the shared funds were kept inside their various residential buildings and uncompleted fence buildings, adding that the affected officials also kept the part of the stolen funds with their relatives.”
It however, called on the authorities of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) and Association of National Accountants of Nigeria (ANAN) in the country to call their members to order over alleged plan to perfect the accounting records of the state in order to save the present administration under Aregbesola’s watch from any future corrupt malpractices probe by anti-graft agencies.
It described Aregbesola and his co-travelers in mismanagement of the State funds to the tune of billions of naira as illegal, unconstitutional, undemocratic, gross irresponsibility and betrayal of public trust, insisting that all these allegations should be investigated by the appropriate authority and if found guilty, they should be sent to jail for financial crimes.
The statement issued by CSCEOS’ Chairman, Comrade Adeniyi Sulaiman, on Sunday, urged the authorities of the accounting institutions to warn their members to distance themselves from “alleged fraudulent mindset of Aregbesola led-state government, on the plan to use the members of the respected professional bodies (ICAN and ANAN) to doctor all the financial records and documents of the state on or before first quarters of 2017, insisting that the present crop of heads of three arms of state government and their labour leaders alike, were notorious embezzlers that ready to rob the good people of the State of their commonwealth.”
