Local and state public servants in Osun state should henceforth defy illegal, looting directives from the outgoing Oyetola administration as they are and will be fully protected by the incoming Adeleke administration, the Osun state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has declared.

Reacting to reports of coercion and resistance within the service, the party warned Heads of Local Administration and Directors of Finance across the local governments to reject the current directive to disburse the N2.7billion Sure-P fund, asserting ” you will carry the cross if you obey illegal orders”

The party while commending civil servants who are resisting pillaging orders from top officials of the outgoing government call on the public service to protect its honour in this last week by avoiding, refusing, disobeying, and rejecting any thieving memos, adding “any HoLA or DFA who process directives to steal will be severely held accountable”

The party when further specifically referring to a memo to local governments to spend the Sure-P fund on capital projects questioned what capital projects can be executed in under one week, calling on HoLAs and DFAs to avoid engagement with illegality so as not to jeopardise their careers.

“Local government directors should reject the memo on Sure-P fund as it was asking them to divert public funds under the cover of executing capital projects within one week. It is a fraudulent scheme”, the statement advised.

Reassuring the public servants of the security of their jobs, the PDP said the APC petition before the Tribunal is defective and ineffective and that a PDP administration will reinstate and rehabilitate any public servant sacked or maltreated for rejecting illegal orders that contravene financial regulations, due process, and public service rules.

“We call on public servants to continue to be courageous and patriotic in this last week. Refuse to raise vouchers for payment. Reject memo to auction properties. Don’t sign on for any appointments. Report fund movement. Alert us on property pillaging.

“We assured the public servants that the game of mind and misinformation the APC is playing on the Tribunal has failed as Mr. Oyetola has failed to prove any reason why Adeleke’s election can’t stand. Adeleke’s election conforms with all requirements of the electoral act.

“There was no over-voting and he has no issue with his certificates. By November 27, Senator Adeleke will be sworn in as the Governor of Osun state by the Grace of God and all patriots among the public servants and people of Osun will rejoice”, the statement concluded.
