The All Progressives Congress, APC, Osun state chapter has told the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in the state to shut up, if it has nothing meaningful and sensible to contribute to the political development of the state.
This was contained in a statement issued by the party’s Directorate of Publicity, Research and Strategy and signed by its Director, Kunle Oyatomi and made available to the newsmen on Thursday in Osogbo.
The party was responding to the statement credited to Alhaji YK Idowu, on behalf of PDP, charging Governor Adegboyega Oyetola to be ‘moderate in enslavement of Osun workers’.
It will be recalled that the PDP advised Governor Gboyega Oyetola to buckle up, feign competence and demonstrate some seriousness in basic governance undertakings in order to cure himself of acute insensitivity and incessant gasping for increasingly elusive popularity for his stagnant government in the state.
Oyatomi said, ‘it is disrespectful and insulting for a house of commotion, like that of Osun PDP which in less than six months, had had four state chairmen, to advise the people’s Governor of Osun, in whom the citizenry show appreciation.
According him, “it is laughable, to see a blind man driving a vehicle, conveying healthy people with visibilities.
‘No one needs to be told that Governor Oyetola is workers’ friendly and from inception of his administration, he takes welfare of Osun workforce a priority. Only those who do not know the notoriety of the PDP in Osun will believe the nonsense they are saying.
‘Osun workers have identified themselves with Gov. Oyetola who is a promise keeper and prudent manager of resources; he doesn’t just talk, he does what he says he will do’.
According to the party, “if critics and political opponents are blind and deaf, the good people of Osun are more intelligent and responsible, who acknowledge and appreciate Gov Oyetola’s achievements in all ramifications.
