I risked my life to Abuja for Osun’s sake, says Adeleke

 Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke has denied claims that his administration has slashed traditional rulers’ statutory monthly allocation by 2.5 per cent, saying: “I risked my life to Abuja for Osun State’s sake and I don’t need government money but will rather add to it.” 

Adeleke, responding to agitations by traditional rulers, who claimed that the current administration had slashed their statutory during their monthly meeting held at the Finance Building, Abere yesterday, explained that monthly allocation varied, hence it was affecting the five per cent deduction for traditional rulers. 

 The Nation learnt that traditional rulers during a closed door meeting with Governor Adeleke ahead of the open meeting lamented that the state government was taking from the five per cent meant for the traditional rulers monthly, leaving only 2.5 per cent for the kings.
