Osun PDP leaders, hypocritical and dishonest- APC

By Akeeb Alarape, Osogbo

The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has faulted leaders of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders who were reported to have approached the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi (Ojaja II) to intercede for a former deputy governor in the state, Iyiola Omisore.Describing the move to draft Ooni into the current travails of Omisore according to the APC is ‘hypocritical and dishonest’.

The party also dismissed as shameless and deceitful PDP leaders’ call on the people of the state to bear the ‘hardship’ allegedly foisted on them by the APC, following the defeat of Jonathan-led PDP government in Abuja since last year.

According to the APC, “Omisore is in detention as a result of his own alleged involvement in the looting of Nigeria by the PDP that partly created the hardship which the whole country is going through right
now.

“It is therefore, a dishonest and hypocritical exercise for PDP  leaders to fall on their faces before the Ooni and asked the revered monarch to help them plead for a politician who is under criminal
investigation for his alleged participation in the corrupt mismanagement of the country’s finances,’ the APC stated.

In a press statement signed by the party’s Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Kunle Oyatomi, the APC argued that ‘only a crop of shameless people in politics will act so dishonourably as to blame
their opponents for the hardship they themselves foisted on the people.’

The APC further stressed that in a civilised and law-abiding democracy, PDP leaders would be hiding their heads in disgrace for the mind-buggling revelation of massive corruption by that party in the
last six years which virtually collapsed the Nigerian economy.
