Osun State Accord Party chairman, Victor Akande has said the All Progressives Congress, (APC) and Governor Adegboyega Oyetola will not be elected in the 2023 general election.
The party chairman made the announcement in Osogbo, the State Capital explaining that Oyetola’s mismanagement of pensions would checkmate his second term bid.
The opposition party noted that sections 5(b) and 7, pages 18 and 19, of the current Osun State Contributory Pension Law of 2008 stipulated that the State government is responsible for paying terminal benefits to workers that have retired from the State’s public service.
Akande said, “The agitations for well-deserved retirement benefits by contributory pensioners in Osun State, comprising Primary Schools, Secondary Schools, Tertiary Institutions, Civil and Local Government in the State who are yet to be paid their entitlements by the Government are in order and cannot continue to be handled with levity at this critical moment of economic letdown.
“It is heartbreaking to know that for more than six (6) years, the majority of the State retirees have not received a dime. This ungodly treatment of the people who had served the State diligently for thirty-five (35) years or 60/65 years is unfair, inhumane and disappointing”.
The party leader promised to improve the quality of life of the people.
He promised voters that if his party was elected to run in the 2023 general election, it would find a lasting solution to the problems created by the ruling party.
