Osun APC Reacts as Adeleke Forcefully Withdraws Vehicles from Osun Market Women Leader

The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the embattled state Governor Ademola Adeleke as being unnecessarily vindictive, wicked, inconsiderate and petty in his interim office as the state governor.

It would be recalled that the Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal that sat in Osogbo sacked Governor Adeleke in its judgement on January 27, 2023 and directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw the certificate of return from Adeleke and give same to the winner of the election, Mr Gboyega Oyetola, immediately.

It would also be recalled that the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign rally recorded a monumental success in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, on February 2, 2023 despite the deliberate human brick wall created by Adeleke/PDP to frustrate and bungle the presidential rally.

It was discovered that immediately after the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign rally which was attended by all the market women leaders (Iyalojas) and their members in the state that the sacked Governor Adeleke ordered the forceful withdrawal of all the official vehicles from the Iyalojas in all the 30 local government council areas of the state and the Area Office, Modakeke.

Information has it that all the buses were forcefully withdrawn from the market women leaders by Adeleke through some 'hard men' who were accompanied by some battle-ready police officers in a Gestapo-like manner.

It was learnt that the three official vehicles attached to the Office of the Iyaloja-General of Osun State, Alhaja Asindemade, were forcefully taken away from her Kolabalogun residence area of Osogbo on Friday with a team of government officials numbering fifteen comprising fully-armed police officers, thugs and state government officials.

The vehicles were taken away from Asindemade's house while the third one was toed from the mechanic's workshop where it was undergoing repairs.

In the process, a daughter of the Iyaloja-General was harrassed by the rampaging vehicle recovery team who seized her mobile phone under a spurious allegation that she was recording the activities of the unwanted visitors.

In his comment on the development, the Osun State APC Acting chairman, Sooko Tajudeen Lawal, said it was unfortunate that the interim Governor Adeleke could be prioritizing adding to the hardship of the market women leaders by this time in the history of the nation.

Lawal, in a statement,  asked Adeleke when it has become an offence for the market women leaders to associate freely with their choice of candidate under a democratic setting.

He told Adeleke to state the reasons how the forceful removal of the vehicles from the Osun market women leaders would reverse his status as a sacked governor whom the tribunal ordered to withdraw certificate of return from?

Lawal also stated that the withdrawal of the vehicles from the women would not, in any way, affect the electoral success of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential election as it's God-ordained.

He also observed that the terse response from the embattled  governor attributing union conflict as reason for the withdrawal of the vehicle as an insult on the sensibilities on the people of the state.

Lawal hinted that it would have been better for Adeleke to keep mum on the development instead of spewing gibberish through his spokesman alluding what was not as the cause of the forceful retrieval of the vehicles.

The state APC acting chairman reminded Adeleke that it was an act of wickedness and lack of empathy that could make the embattled governor to go all out against the market women leaders in the state.
