Osun PDP's Allegation Of APC Inducing Security Agencies Against Chieftains Is Untrue, Diversionary

The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the allegation of the state chapter of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of setting the security agencies against some of its political functionaries and chieftain as baseless and a mere fabrication to  avoid answering pertinent questions regarding the excessively insane contract procurement process supervised by the Senator Ademola Adeleke government.

It would be recalled that the controversial chairman of the PDP in the state, Mr Sunday Bisi, issued a statement today accusing the state APC of a plan to use the security agencies against the members of the PDP in the state.

In his remark on the development, the Osun State APC chairman, Sooko Tajudeen Lawal, in a statement issued by the party's Director of Media and Information, Chief Kola Olabisi, today, stated that apprehension  being exercised by the Osun PDP is part of the ploy to mystify the issue surrounding how the government of Osun recently awarded over N50bn road contracts to fertilizer distributors, cyber cafe operators and many cronies of the party with no technical and professional competence to execute road projects.  

"The handlers of Senator Ademola Adeleke are just being clever by half. They are perplexed and afraid to intelligently respond to our party's revelation on how friends, family members and cronies, of the governor, with no experience in road construction, were gifted multi-billion road contracts," Lawal submitted.

Lawal explained that if anything at all, perhaps it was the spirits of the over 30 members of the state APC members, who were slaughtered like rams by the PDP thugs in the last elections, that were causing them the sleepless nights.

Lawal disclosed that the efforts of the PDP to whip up unmerited sympathy from the innocent citizenry has fallen flat as the informed citizens of the state are more determined to know the details of the shoddy contract process leading to how Governor Adeleke and his companions awarded state contracts to the serving deputy speaker of the state House of Assembly, contrary to the provision of the rules guiding contract award.

In the words of the APC chairman: "Was it the state APC that directed Governor Adeleke who doubles as the state Commissioner for Works, to award a kilometre of road for a whooping cost of N2.5 billion which is even higher than what is obtainable even in the riverine areas?

"The state leadership of the PDP should leave the APC out of the problems it might have created for itself because of political desperation. If some criminals among them, those who were involved in the maiming, killing and kidnapping of innocent members of our party, are being wanted by law enforcement agencies, the right thing for a law-abiding chairman to do is to direct the indicted members to answer the lawful summons of the security agencies, not teaching them to act fugitives as the mascot chairman of the PDP is currently doing.

"Osun PDP and its co-travellers are groping in the daylight because of the confusion their greed has imposed on the people of Osun", Lawal stated.
