APC remains dead in Oyo -Makinde

...says Olaniyan's impeachment  follows constitutional process 

Governor 'Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, yesterday, took a swipe on the opposition party, the All Progressives Congress, APC in the state, saying the political agenda and candidates of the party were all dead projects on arrival as far as the state was concerned.

The governor, through a statement issued by PDP's Publicity Secretary in the state, Akeem Olatunji, described Oyo APC as not only laughable, but also devoid of any atom of shame, empathy,  and remorse for the pain, emotional and psychological trauma caused the people of the state for eight interrupted years.

The reaction came on the heels of APC's statement by its state publicity secretary, Olawale Sadare, saying the opposition's desperation to take over the state was being fueled by lack of access to the state coffers, noting that were it not for his simplicity towards investigating and prosecuting the last APC government, many of the opposition members would have been languishing away in jail by now.

"The statement reads: "If Makinde was at the very least power drunk as shamefully alleged by our noisy neighbors, many of its members would have been languishing in jail by now. Governor Makinde, a peaceful and peace loving person epitomized, has remain calm even in the face of unprovoked verbal assaults and vituperative remarks from the APC in the state against his person and personality outside of government."

"Could any opposition party member or members dare half of what APC is recklessly doing now with its government between 2011 and 2019? But we believe this is the beauty of democracy. It was on record how the then APC governor publicly bullied retirees and pensioners who demanded for what rightfully belonged to them and even compared them with dead people, it was also on record how the APC government despite its monumental failure in education shamefully disgraced itself while engaging in a needless face-off with protesting LAUTECH students after over two whole years of being on strike," he said.

The governor maintained that should its opposition counterpart in the state, the APC has any slightest semblance of human empathy away from playing politics, it should engage itself in what was described as a statewide tour of open apology to the innocent people it inflicted untold hardship, economic pain, psychological and emotional trauma and greatly impoverished within its 8 years of draconian misrule between 2011 and 2019.

He wondered why the Oyo APC would continue to subject itself to fallacious thinking out of self imposed delusion in the face of current political realities in that it could display such level of political rascality thereby, making ludicrous and indecorous remarks against Governor Makinde, a man who's unprecented achievements in less than four years have earned him the nickname of a 'God Sent Messiah, (GSM)' by the good people of the state.

Makinde, then recalled that APC in the state in its reaction to his response to some of the questions asked by an Ibada-based radio presenter on his programme, attacked him with unprintable words, describing his response as unfortunate and shameful, while also defending the impeached deputy governor, Rauf Olaniyan.

He, however, condemned the statement credited to the APC in defense of the former deputy governor, describing the opposition's remarks as not only regrettable and lacking in moral uprightness but also shows everything the opposition party represents saying APC members by every atom of moral standing have no place among politicians to be trusted or taken seriously stressing that Nigerians are already desperate and impatient to end APC's existence come 2023.

"For the avoidance of doubt, everything regarding the impeachment of former deputy governor, Engr. Rauf Olaniyan remains a public knowledge from the start to finish. It was a exercise that duly followed required constitutional process."

"Even after his impeachment, Olaniyan approached the court of law and still lost because what the legislature did was in tandem with the provisions of the law. It is rather laughable not sad to see APC in its usual show of macabre dance of shame throw tantrums at governor Seyi Makinde for an entirely legislative exercise all because APC has become a safe haven for alleged murderers, thieves, and political desperados."

"We ordinarily should have ignored the APC's vituperation and tantrums against Governor Makinde but knowing the party for what it represents; lies disseminating machine, we will not give them the opportunity of misleading the public to gain any cheap political relevance off our hard earned political strength and as such will not join them in their gutter politics rather, we'll educate them if they'll ever learn."

"Is it not mind bugling to note that my success in health sector especially management of Covid-19, education, road infrastructures, economy have endeared Oyo State template to the Federal Government such that the template is being adopted and replicated by the APC led government at the centre? Yet, APC in Oyo State remains perpetually blind out of mischief to swallow its ego."

"APC, a calamitous party was and still has been nothing short of being a curse to this state because of its antecedents between 2011 and 2019; all it did was to inflict pains, pains, and more pains on the people it was meant to govern and still go about galavanting despite the persistent public outcry against its devilish disposition to power which occasioned why the party has lost all the serious politicians that made it relevant to the PDP."

"Our government is and will remain committed to the wellbeing as well as the security of lives and property of the good people of Oyo State even in the face of a ravaging direction-less party as APC whose final burial has been slated for 2023 at the polls," the governor boasted.
