The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has criticised the Governor of the State, Ademola Adeleke the rational behind the extension of State Accountant -General.

The party said controversial extension of the statutory tenure of the state Accountant-General, Mr Rasheed Alabi is contrary to the Public Service Rules (PSR).

The AG, who is in the eye of the storm was appointed by former Governor Gboyega Oyetola on May 21, 2022, and he is due for retirement on March 24, 2024 when he will be attaining the mandatory retirement age of 60 years.

The worried civil servants who felt cheated and robbed with the extension of the years of service of Alabi by Governor Adeleke against the provisions of the Public Service Rules, were sighted discussing in hush tones at the state Government Secretariat, Abere, Osun State, silently questioning the motive and justification for the development.

It would be recalled that the governor recently granted an indefinite elongation of service to the state Head of Service, Mr Leye Aina, despite the fact that the HoS had attained the mandatory retirement age of 60 years. He was given three years extension.

The Osun State Chairman of the APC,Tajudeen Lawal, in a statement issued by the party’s Director of Media and Information, Chief Kola Olabisi, stated that it was worrisome that Adeleke has been running his administration by impulse rather than by the provisions of regulations and laws.
