Stop lying, we are not rebagging palliative, Osun govt tells APC

The Government of Osun State has chided the state’s All Progressive Congress (APC) over its allegation that federal palliative rice have been re-bagged for sharing to the public.

“There is no truth in the allegation. The release from the APC is another manifestation of the opposition’s desperation”, the Honourable Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment noted in a rebuttal.

According to the Commissioner, “the federal rice palliatives are just coming into the state, and none of it was re-bagged.

“The delivery is still ongoing, and they are in safe keeping as they are delivered. The government has already activated its structure for the sharing of the federal palliative to reach all strata of the society.

“The government however deem the supply from the central government insufficient, hence its decision to buy more trucks of rice for distribution to the population.

“Rice purchased by the state which are also being delivered are however branded and they are also due for sharing very soon. What is branded are the state’s rice, not federal palliative, the delivery of which is still ongoing.

“We challenge the APC leadership to come to the State stores for verification. Sooko Tajudeen Lawal and his team of fake news merchants will, after inspection, see the futility of lying to mislead the public.

“The present administration is committed to due process, rule of law, transparency, and accountability for the delivery of good governance. Members of the public should ignore the rantings of an opposition in search of political direction.
