However, the claim has ignited a political firestorm between the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun.

The Osun APC Chairman, Tajudeen Lawal, on Wednesday accused Governor Adeleke of raising false panic regarding security in the state, calling it a “phony” signal of insecurity.

Lawal claimed the governor’s aim was to divert attention from his “hopeless and thieving administration.”

“It is disheartening that a loquacious governor, who junkets around the world in the name of attracting potential investors, would descend into grave pettiness of planting hoax in the media,” Lawal said.

He questioned the governor’s alleged sudden concern for agriculture when his administration hasn’t taken any serious policy on improving it in the past 16 months.

Lawal claimed that the alleged security threat was a ploy to shift attention from Adeleke’s “ill-thought-out N100 billion white elephant projects when hunger is working on four legs in all the streets in the nooks and crannies of the state.”

In a sharp rebuttal, the PDP Chairman in Osun, Sunday Bisi, slammed the APC for dismissing Adeleke’s security alarm as fake.

“We find it reprehensible and condemnable for the state APC to deny reports that have been confirmed by virtually all the security agencies in the state. Must APC play politics with everything? A patriotic Governor raised alarm on security threats and he summoned the state security council meeting.

“Instead of commending the Governor for his foresight, the opposition has chosen to play bad, sore loser again, leveling unfounded allegations and playing games with lives and properties of our people,” Bisi said.

He added, “The PDP government is too well focussed on delivering on its infra and social programmes designed to restore the state from the depth of under-development the state was plunged into for 12 years. We are proud as a party to restate that our government is in full compliance with the procurement laws and other extant provisions in the implementation of its infra projects.”

“As our government has repeatedly emphasized, all ongoing projects passed through all requisite due process requirements and no legal requirement is ignored or unobserved.”
