Social Democratic Party (SDP), candidate, Mr. Olusegun Akinwusi has described last Saturday’s debate in which only Governor Rauf Aregbesola featured as part of the usual propaganda of the APC administration.
Akinwusi, in a statement yesterday, described the debate as a charade and a mockery of the people of Osun State.
“We have 20 governorship candidates in Osun state. I am the first person to have challenged Aregbesola to a live debate to let us discuss the state economy, the huge debt profile of the state and his so-called achievement.
“Information had it that the so called international community said to have organized the debate never existed and my two co-contestants of Labour Party and PDP were invited on phone an hour to the programme.
“For the avoidance of doubt, if Aregbesola is manly enough, he should let us sit together to debate about his governance. Who is afraid of Akinwusi that they are trying to avoid him to speak to the public about our state?”, he contended.
