CJ Orders Aregbesola to Provide Debt Profile of Osun State
The Chief Judge of Osun State, Justice Oyebola Adepele Ojo, on Wednesday granted a mandamus order compelling the state Governor, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, to provide full information about the debt profile of Osun state and its defrayment modality.
The order was sought by a human rights lawyer, Mr Kanmi Ajibola, pursuant to Order 40, Rule 3 of the High Court with 30 a paragraphs affidavit in support of his motion ex-parte.
Ajibola asked the court to compel Aregbesola to provide the list of all capital projects being executed by his government since November 26, 2015.
The applicant sought an order compelling the Governor to provide information about the financial cost of all the capital projects executed by him.
He also asked the court to compel the Governor to provide evidence of the lodgment of the deductions from the salaries of the Osun State Civil Servants, being their contributions to the Pension Scheme into the Retirement Savings Account.
The human rights lawyer equally sought an order of the court compelling Governor Aregbesola to provide evidence of the lodgment of the Contributory Pension Scheme into the Contributory Retirement Savings.
