Oyetola is peace loving : Osun PDP, APC clash over Oyetola


The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has described former governor Adegboyega Oyetola as a peace loving man.


This is as the Osun APC dismissed the claim by the state Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that Oyetola, the Minister of Marine and Blue Economy is endangering the peace of Osun as not only outlandish but bogus.


Commenting on the development in Osogbo on Sunday, the Osun State chairman of the APC, Tajudeen Lawal, in a statement issued by the party’s Director of Media and Information, Chief Kola Olabisi, stated that the Osun PDP chairman and his cronies simply cooked up a lie to suit their purpose.


He added that but for him, there would have been a counter-attack in Osun after the killing of 30 of APC members during the presidential and National Assembly elections in 2023.


“Oyetola is not known for violence. Osun APC is known for its peaceful disposition. All these played out during the reign of Oyetola as Governor.


“This explains why, despite the attempt on his life during the EndSARS protest in Osogbo, Oyetola never abused his office to intimidate or harass anyone. So, if Governor Ademola Adeleke’s spokesperson or any PDP chieftain for that matter has any issues with security agencies, they should go and sort themselves out and stop the cheap blackmail of dragging President Bola Ahmed Tinubu into a matter that has no basis.



“The first reaction was to ignore Sunday Bisi and his co-travellers. But because they lumped other issues into it, including the issue of a fathom rice from NEMA, the APC is compelled to put the records straight.



“We have always said that Osun PDP leaders and their handlers strive on propaganda and cheap blackmail.



“A simple check at NEMA, would make their lies and claims fall flat on their face. Oyetola never got any rice from NEMA. This is how they lie with impunity and with no verifiable fact.



“For the records, Oyetola has been working hard to deliver on the presidential mandate given to him by the President and he has results to show for what he has done so far.



“We are not known for violence. If anyone has issues with security agencies, he should go and sort out himself. Dragging the presidency into it is cheap blackmail and has no basis,” Lawal added.
