Punch reports that Aregbesola said “They didn’t spare us on any platform. Even today, they lied against us and some shameless organs of mass communication supported them.

“Say shame on them, shame! All of them and those who are supporting them. Some newspapers knew they were lying, yet they supported them. PUNCH reported last week Thursday that they had just released the money, the same PUNCH published today that we have kept the money for two months. Shame on all of them, shame!

“Newspapers are meant to educate the people; they are not meant to incite the public against the government. Shame on PUNCH, shame on Tribune. I say it openly; let them challenge me.
