Lawmakers from Osun in both the National and State Assemblies will tomorrow hold a stakeholders conference with a view to proffering means of tackling the financial challenges facing the administration of Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun state.

Addressing a press conference in Osogbo weekend, the chairperson of the lawmakers under the eagis of Osun Legislators’ Forum , Mrs Ayo Omidiran said Osun was in dire straits and needed to be salvaged.

She said the stakeholders’ conference would bring over 1,000 personalities from all works of life together at Wocdif event centre in Osogbo to suggest workable solutions to the present administration to work with.

Omidiran said Governor Aregbesola would be present at the conference to give an account of how his administration got to the present situation.

She noted that the conference does not exclude members of other political parties saying “its an all encompassing conference geared at proffering lasting solutions to the myriad of problems confronting our dear state; thereby ensuring the continuation and completion of all the laudable people friendly programmes already started by the administration of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.”

Her words: ” the members of Osun Legislators’ Forum, comprising of all legislators from Osun in both the National and State Assemblies have decided to deliberate on the state, interact with all stakeholders including, but not limited to, all past governors and their deputies, technocrats and artisans, labour unions and non-governmental organisations, traditional rulers and market women.

“The conference presents an opportunity for all stakeholders to hear the horse’s mouth, how we got to this sorry pass. The Governor state of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola will explain in clear terms and plain language during his submission; the what, when, why and how. He will answer all our questions and lay all his cards on the table.”

“Stakeholders are expected to contribute intellectually through submissions based on facts and experiences,” omidiran added.

She said invitation letters had been sent to about 1,000 stakeholders across political differences in the state adding that the ideas of the conference would be presented to Aregbesola after which they would wait for the governor’s decision.
