It Is Unconstitutional For You To Use Coercion To Enlist Political Support From Commercial Okada, Tricycle Riders - Osun APC Tells Adeleke

The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned the unhealthy desperation of the state Governor Ademola Adeleke to retain power beyond 2026 despite his pungent abysmal poor handling of the governance of the state to the chagrin of the right-thinking members of the society.

According to the state chairman of the APC, Sooko Tajudeen Lawal, in a statement issued by the party's Director of Media and Information, Chief Kola Olabisi, today, it is lack of a deep thought orchestrated by the dearth of required political management for the prestigious office of a state governor that could make the clueless Governor Adeleke to think that he could successfully rob the people of the state politically back-to-back.

Reliable information has it that when it was apparent that the people of Osun State are fed up with the exhibition of  indolence, inefficiency, lack of tact and diplomacy, vindictiveness, favouritism and vendetta, by Governor Adeleke as the unfortunate Chief Driver of the state, the state governor and his cohorts, have taken to various unacceptable means of coercing different groups of the people of the state to declare continuous support for the Peoples Democratic Party's (PDP)-run administration in the state.

It was learnt that Adeleke has now resorted to forcing commercial motorcycle and tricycle riders in the state to swear to the oath of continuous support for the PDP in all the future elections in the state with the god of iron called 'Ogun' in Yoruba parlance.

It was also gathered that words have been passed round from the state capital level of the transportation unions that the secret oath-taking of the compulsory allegiance should be held in all the units of the unions across the nooks and crannies of the state.

Governor Adeleke and his co-travellers have also been going round the state to woo back the real owners of the PDP in the state that they chased back with cudgels, cutlasses, abuses and lack of political patronage immediately Adeleke was announced the winner of the governorship election by the Supreme Court.

The Osun State APC chairman pungently told Governor Adeleke that it was too late in the day for him to engage in fruitless mission of enlisting the support of the leaders and members of his party that he had shown ingratitude to when he was declared the winner of the controversial election in the state.

Lawal asked Adeleke if he thinks it is pretty possible to fool anyone who is not thinking with his feet successively, adding that if the governor could brazenly show such an unacceptable and irritating level of  ingratitude during his first term in the office, he would do worst things if he should be helped for another tenure.

He questioned the rationale behind the governor engaging in the forceful oath of allegiance taking to effect support if truly his administration is genuinely popular in the state?

The state APC chairman cautioned Adeleke and his handlers to allow the people to freely make their political choice which is their fundamental right as anything short of that is an unconstitutional act.
