Osun APC Commends Oyetola For Adding Value To Tinubu's Renewed Hope Agenda ... Condemns Sunday Bisi's Call For Minister's Sack As Ill-motivated, Reckless, Unjustifiable

Contrary to the wishes and wild imagination of the Osun State chapter of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress APC has described the immediate-past Governor Gboyega Oyetola now Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, as a resourceful manager of men and resources whose ministry has been adding substantial value to the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

It would be recalled that Alhaji Oyetola had disclosed during the ministerial briefing of his ministry few days ago that through his  proper coordination of the parastatals under him, his ministry had generated N242.8 billion within the first quarter of this year.

The Osun State chairman of the PDP, Mr Sunday Bisi, whose proper frame of mind was in doubt at the time of  issuing a statement today, asked President Tinubu to relieve Alhaji Oyetola of his ministerial appointment on the basis of what he alleged as 'poor performance'.

In his reaction, 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, stated that Sunday Bisi's call for the sack of  the Marine and Blue Economy Minister is baseless and without any justifiable reason.

Lawal explained that if not that the Osun State PDP chairman is limited in knowledge and understanding, himself and his co-travellers would have known that an individual's opinion on a television programme could not be a sufficient barometer to appraise a public officer like Alhaji Oyetola who, despite the newness of his ministry, has been forging ahead to the admiration of the right-thinking members of the society and not those who are thinking through their legs.

He stated further that the PDP's statement on the issue at stake is an indication that the ruling party is a pack of ill-motivated, vitriolic and sadistic politicians who can not differentiate from an accomplished performer like Oyetola whose enviable records as the state governor then could not be rivaled or compared with anyone as the difference is clear.

In Lawal's words: "If the Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola, who masterminded the finalisation of the Funtua Inland Dry Port which was commissioned on May 9th, 2024, should be sacked as cruelly and stupidly being canvassed by Sunday Bisi, what should then happen to a governor who could not account for N300 billion Federal Government funds in his care for the people of the state since the inauguration of the inglorious administration of the ruling government in the state?

"If Alhaji Oyetola who commissioned a 4.8 km of road at Onne Port and Mooring Boats should be relieved of his appointment as it is the wish of  Sunday Bisi and his cohorts, what  then should  be done  to a state governor who is finding it pretty difficult to either read or recite the newly-adopted National Anthem?

"If Sunday Bisi and his co-travellers are knowledgeable enough about the running of the Federal Government, it would not be difficult for them to know that the rehabilitation of some access roads in Tin Can and Apapa ports were effected under Oyetola.

"Our brothers and sisters in the apparently confused PDP should learn that Oyetola as the hardworking Minister of Marine and Blue Economy has injected and restored sanity to Tin Can Island Port corridor as the perennial traffic gridlock on the Mile 2 and Tin Can  in Lagos has since given way, thus putting an end to the multi-billion-naira yearly loss to Lagos Ports' traffic gridlock, which defied all solutions for close to one decade.

"Thank God that it is he who hires that can fire. It is unfortunate that Sunday Bisi and his cohorts cannot see the exemplary and superlative achievements of Alhaji Oyetola in the ministry of Marine and Blue Economy where he is the maiden Minister because they are bereft of pathological ingredients of understanding.

"President Bola Ahmed Tinubu knows the inherent knowledge possessed by former Governor Oyetola which have been seeing him through without hitches in the new ministry which have been the sources of addition of  his inestimable value to the ruling government at the centre.

"So the Osun State PDP chairman's call for Oyetola's sack  is balderdash, humbug, flapdoodle and can neither fly nor sit", the Osun State APC chairman stated.
