Osun poll: It’ll take PDP 30 years to recover from defeat, Oyetola says
…your statement reckless, capable of causing chaos – PDP
The Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, on Friday, declared that the authority to govern the state that was in his hands would not be relinquished soon, as his party, the All Progressives Congress, would emerge victorious in the July 16 governorship poll.
Oyetola, who disclosed this while addressing a reelection campaign held in Ila-Orangun, the headquarters of Ila Local Government Area, also told the main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party that after its defeat at the forthcoming poll, it would take the party 30 years before it would recover and contest again in the state.
He enumerated series of achievements recorded by his administration since it came on board and charged the electorate in the community to get their Permanent Voter’s Card and support the APC at the poll.
Speaking in Yoruba language, Oyetola said, “This authority is in my hand, I won’t relinquish it because your votes will assist me to retain it. My eight years in power as governor is sure by the grace of God.
“It will take the PDP 30 years for them to contest again in Osun because of the defeat they will suffer on July 16.”
But while reacting, the Director of Media and Strategy, Osun PDP, Oladele Oluwabamiji, said the statement credited to the governor was capable of causing chaos.
He also said Oyetola with his utterances, had given marching order to his followers to engage in brigandage for the APC to emerge victorious, adding that the Osun people with their voting power would decide the fate of the APC on July 16.
“The statement was capable of causing chaos and it is reckless to say the least. Osun people will decide his fate on July 16,” Oluwabamiji said.
