Oladele Bamiji, a Senior Special Assistant (Media) to Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke, claimed that Dr. Deji Adeleke’s company was not associated with the provision of 332 boreholes, one of the initiatives the new administration launched to commemorate its first 100 days in office.
Bamiji responded to a report stating that Pacific Drilling Limited was the project’s contractor by providing the clarification in a statement.
The initiative to provide water was a grassroots intervention coordinated by local government areas under the direction of the state government, according to Bamiji, who called the accusation a “wicked lie that can only originate from an estranged individual who is being driven by hatred and bile.”
According to him, firms involved in the projects were locally sourced with the water and works department of each local government area handling the procurement processes.
“It is therefore reprehensible fake news from the pit of hell to allege that a single company is anchoring the borehole projects. Pacific Holding is not involved in any project in Osun.
“It is on record that Dr. Deji Adeleke who the blackmailer seeks to malign was the first to announce his ambassadorship of good governance, pledging to monitor the new government for adherence to people’s aspirations and needs,” the statement read in parts.
He stressed that the current administration in Osun was committed to transparency, due process, and open governance.
