APC flays destruction of candidate’s billboards in Osun


APC leader, Adams Oshiomole

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned the destruction of the billboards of its governorship flag-bearer, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola, in Iwo and Ile-Ife areas of the state.

It called on security agencies to intervene in the matter before it gets out of hand.

Besides, the party called on the leadership of the Alliance Democratic Party (ADP) and Social Democratic Party (SDP), whose governorship candidates are from the two communities, to call their supporters to order.


A statement by APC Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Kunle Oyatomi, noted that the action was capable of implicating leaders of the two parties.

He said: “Reports reaching us from Iwo and Ile-Ife spoke of extensive vandalism of APC gubernatorial candidate’s billboard.

These two cities are the home bases of the ADP and SDP gubernatorial candidates, Senator Iyiola Omisore and Alhaji Moshood Adeoti.

We want to appeal to the two candidates to restrain their overzealous supporters from the criminal activities before they (vandals) implicate them in crime.”

Meanwhile, the Oranmiyan Group has endorsed the candidature of Oyetola as successor to Governor Rauf Aregbesola in the September 22 governorship election.

The endorsement was contained in a statement by the group’s spokesman, Sodiq Olajide, and made available to reporters in Osogbo.

Olajide noted that the only way the people of the state could reciprocate the good works of Aregbesola was for them to come out en masse and vote for Oyetola.


According to him, Oyetola was singled out among other contestants due to his experience, qualification and the belief in his mental capacity to lead the state to greater heights.

“We, members of Oranmiyan Group, unanimously endorse the candidature of Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola as the candidate to take over the mantle of power and continue the good job of Governor Aregbesola.

“We have listened to the manifestoes of Oyetola and we are very impressed.

He is a man of many parts with vast experience in politics, business and public administration,” he stated.

However, the APC has suffered another setback following the defection of the lawmaker representing Odo Otin Constituency in the House of Assembly, Olaoluwa Oyediran, to the African Democratic Congress (ADC).

Oyediran, who defected to ADC at the weekend with his supporters in Okuku, Odo-Otin Council, decried alleged deprivation the people of the state by the ruling APC.
