THE Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Osun state has accused Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of attempting to use the judiciary to frustrate the November 27 hand over date.
The party also accused former Chairman, Soji Adagunodo of using a belated court case to help the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state to truncate the hand-over of government to the PDP.
Adekunle asked the former chairman to withdraw the matter before the court and stop hiding under the guise that his name was not cleared by the National Working Committee of the party.
“To avoid becoming part of the plot to scuttle the will of Osun people and to prove that he is indeed not available for the APC reactionary agenda, Adagunodo should urgently kick-start the process of case withdrawal,” the statement said.
“We are compiling all the observed unprofessional activities on this particular matter and we will duly approach the NJC. We want to strongly advice the state judicial leadership to be sensitive to the conduct of some of its officials. The judiciary should not allow itself to be used against the will of Osun people”, the statement concluded.
Leave Oyetola out of your internal problems, APC told
Reacting, the Special Adviser to Governor Oyetola on Political Matters, Sunday Akere, expressed surprise over the fictitious allegation against the governor, urging the PDP to look inward and resolve its internal crisis.
“It is quite unfortunate that PDP leaders are always afraid of their own shadow. What has Governor Oyetola or the APC got to do with matters that affect PDP? Instead they should face their internal problem and stop bringing APC into it. The governor is not interested in their issues. We believe in the rule of law and we believe that justice will prevail for us,” he added.
