PDP cautions Aregbesola over ‘State of Osun’

OSUN State chapter of People Democratic Party, PDP, has cautioned Governor Rauf Aregbesola against the use of “State of Osun“ instead of Osun State, and advised corporate bodies, banks and individuals not to transact business with the current administration under the name “State of Osun.”

The party was reacting to a recent judgment by a Lagos High Court sitting in Igbosere, which dismissed a charge against a 20-year-old man, David Monday, by The State of Lagos (prosecution), over what it described as non-existence of the prosecution owing to the name which ought to be Lagos State.

Chairman of PDP in Osun State, Alhaji Ganiyu Ola-Oluwa in a statement by the Director of Media and Strategy for Osun PDP, Prince Diran Odeyemi, advised Aregbesola to drop the name “State of Osun” and stick to the constitutionally-recognised Osun State.

According to the PDP statement, “we are aware of the pronouncement of Justice Ebenezer Adebajo in which he declared that Section 3 of the Constitution is headed States of the Federation.”
