Osun State governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola has described Justice Folahanmi Oloyede as a blatant liar who is not competent to be a judge.
The governor, while expressing his view in the public to the petition written against him by the serving judge in the state who accused him and his deputy, Mrs Laoye Tomori, of mismanaging the state’s funds over the weekend, said Oloyede accused him wrongly.
Aregbesola had responded to the petition written by the judge to the state House of Assembly before the latter dismissed it for lacking merit.
At the 50th birthday party of the state Assembly speaker, Hon. Najeem Salaam, Aregbesola took a swipe at the judge saying she had lost her integrity in the judiciary.
The governor accused journalists for “publicising and celebrating the events that emanated from the petition, saying there was no basis in the petition, hence the dismissal by the state lawmakers.
His words: “It is time for me to speak on the petition written by one of the judges in the state. I want to say that there was no basis in the petition. It’s all lies. …a judge that doesn’t know herself as judge. You can only see a judge and not heard. She (Oloyede) doesn’t have any substance in the judiciary. She lied against me.
“The journalists should have checked the financial statement of the allocation before writing their stories. Most of them (journalists) want me out of office but I will triumph over them. If I had collected N538billion, Osun would have turned to Dubai. I am happy Buhari went to USA and it was said that one million barrels crude oil was being stolen every day.
“Is there any country that would lose one million barrels every day that would not suffer economic hardship? God will open economic doors to Osun soon. I was accused of not being in the state, I was perturbed by this report but the weekly executive meeting register proved them wrong.”
