The Osun State Government has denied allegations that it mismanaged ecological funds allocated to it by the Federal Government.

The Osun government said further that it never received any allocation for ecological funds while the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was in power.

The government’s comments were contained in a statement released by Governor Rauf Aregbesola’s spokesman, Semiu Okanlawon.

The statement reads:

“Osun did not receive any ecological fund from the disastrous PDP Federal Government from November 27, 2010 to May 29, 2015. We have depended on our legitimate revenues from all sources to annually dredge our waterways up till 2015 when revenue decline hindered our efforts.”

“We are concerned with the agony of our citizens and shall do all in our power to limit the pains and prevent a re- occurrence, as we are committed to eliminating all hindrances to free flow of water in the canals, drainage systems and waterways in the state.

“All obstructions to free flow of water in these channels will be removed, while property blocking easy access to the drainage channels thus preventing adequate management of them will be separated.”
