The petition sent to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) against former Governor Rauf Aregbesola by some Osun pensioners is unacceptable. Within a reasonable period of time, the Osun 2011/2012 pensioners got it wrong on the petition they wrote. They opted out of contributory pension scheme when Aregbesola enrolled them. This is a sponsored attack and blackmail on the former governor and government of Osun.

Adaba On: October 21, 2018 In: News, News Update There is a battle for the soul of Nigeria. Whoever wins this great battle will determine whether Nigeria breaks away from the past and becomes a truly prosperous and value-oriented country or we continue with our philosophy of survival of the fittest, pretending to be a giant economy based on weak economic fundamentals.
