By Michael Ofulue, Osogbo
The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has appealed to President Bola Tinubu to rescue the people of the state from the scourge of political “tyrants” in the corridor of power in the state .
The party said since November 2022 there have been threat to life on law-abiding citizens of the state .
It called the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun to come to the aid of its members who have been arbitrarily blacklisted for series of violent attacks by the state government.
This is even as members of the opposition frowned at the protracted shutdown of the courts in the state by the Governor Ademola Adeleke led-government, describing the action as “inhuman” and security threat given high number of lawsuits that would have been adjudicated and disposed off for justice.
The opposition party made the appeals on while briefing journalists on development capable of plunging the state into avoidable crises.
During the briefing held in Osogbo, the APC State Chairman, Alhaji Tajudeen Lawal said the call was necessary to nip in the bud the plot of Governor Adeleke and his co-travellers to harass, kidnap and kill leaders and members of the APC) in order to silence the voice of the opposition.
Lawal described the ‘White Paper’ purportedly issued by the governor as a ‘mere smokescreen,’ saying the motive was aimed to “divert the attention of the public from asking pertinent questions regarding the looting carnival and grossly irresponsible conduct of the mediocre and political charlatans in the seat of power in Abere.”
According to him, the Task Force, secretly set up by Adeleke and peopled by the PDP thugs and notorious criminals on the wanted list of the police have been billed to forcefully retrieve some vehicles duly approved for past government functionaries.
He said the decision of the government is to further provoke the law-abiding citizens, injure them and precipitate violence in the state.
“On the threat to lives and properties of the leaders and members of the APC , security reports available to us revealed that the handlers of the state government will anytime from now carry out the evil plan by hiding under the excuse of implementing the White Paper recently issued by the Osun State Government.” he said.
