The Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State has warned the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola and Governor Adegboyega Oyetola not to sacrifice the State beyond redemption on the altar of political altercations.
The warning was made in a statement signed by the State Deputy Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Y.K Idowu, which was made available to newsmen on the backdrop of unending verbal altercations between the State Governor, Mr Gboyega Oyetola and his former boss, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola over the latter’s open allegation that the APC in Osun State is being populated with known murderers, crime suspects and assassins, through the ongoing nationwide membership registration of the party, Apc.
The PDP advised Governor Oyetola to face the task of governance and ensure that he fix the wrecks he jointly created with his predecessor while he served as Chief of Staff.
“We understand from all available facts that Mr Oyetola lacks the balls to reasonably confront his trainer in office on any issue as relating to governance of the state in the past eleven years. We therefore advise him to face his task of patching along headlong than inviting more pressures he obviously lacks the stamina, charisma or proven acumen to withstand.”
“As defacto chairman of tender board, eroding the SSG under government of Aregbesola, on whose desk most of the now abandoned projects were awarded, our party and members of the public, especially the good people of Osun State, will continue to refuse to be cajoled into believing Oyetola had no hand in the naked looting of the state’s treasury that characterised APC government since 2010.
“That Oyetola had maintained sealed lips over unjustifiable abandonment of critical infrastructural projects expected to have been delivered for use of our people in Osun State after borrowing so much to complete them as awarded at various stages of their ruinous administration, speaks volume of unmitigated complicit of the governor and should therefore spare us of any self serving, sympathy seeking crocodile tears whenever it pleases his boss to roar against him or whip him into their usual lane of grab and share.
Osun PDP further calls on the people of the state never to allow themselves be deceived by the subtle exoneration campaigns of Mr Oyetola and his yes men, warning that, the governor from all indications, appears more corrupt, more brutal in looting but with a mien shy of his atrocious capabilities.
On the ongoing tripod thug of war between the governor, his former boss and a recent returnee in their fold in the former deputy governor of the state, Senator Iyiola Omisore, the PDP enjoined the APC warlords to find a way of resolving the murder allegations against themselves and resolve as products and siblings of the same political cult, instead of debasing the state with incessant talks of bloodshed.
“It is no secrete that almost all the high profile political killings in our recent democratic history in Osun State and the entire southwest as a region, were traceable to AD-APC founders and revalidated members alike. That to us is worrisome enough as people of sound and noble history. But, it is good providence that these culpable characters are finding comfort of cohabitation in a common nest of APC, their major surviving common identity..
“The good people of Osun State will in fullness of time and through the noble platform of PDP, respond appropriately to the self confessed murderers and put them in proper pages of history befitting of their devious conducts.
“As a tree would always bear fruits of its own kind, so the APC would always inflict poverty, hunger, disease, and abjection on the land, as fruits of collection of heatless assemblage, taking orders from the pit of hell. They must henceforth be avoided like plaque.
