(PDP) in Osun on Friday advised Osun Government to withdraw government vehicles
from its former commissioners and other ex-political office holders.

in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Osogbo.
OlaOluwa alleged that the state government was promoting
illegality as former government officials were still driving in official

"It is laughable for former government officials to
continue living in government quarters.
"It is the highest level of indiscipline that former state
executive members still parade themselves as government officials,’’ he said.
OlaOluwa said the people of Osun were watching with interest
the show of indiscipline in the state.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that Gov. Rauf
Aregbesola, on Nov. 27, commenced his second term relieving members of his
executives from their respective positions.
Aregbesola, on Monday, Jan. 5, however, announced the
re-appointment of Alhaji Moshood Adeoti as the Secretary to the State
Government (SSG) and Mr Adegboyega Adeoti as the Chief of Staff (COS).
NAN recalls that the two appointees served in the same
capacities in the first term of the governor.
