Osun APC, PDP disagree over state executive meetings
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State has accused the People’s Democratic Party-led administration in the state of failing to fulfil promises it made to the people of the state.
In a statement, yesterday, the state Chairman of the APC, Tajudeen Lawal, accused Governor Ademola Adeleke of failing to hold a State Executive Council meeting 54 days after inaugurating his cabinet members.
He said: “The laissez-faire approach of Governor Adeleke to governance is a confirmation that he is only attracted to the glamour of the office without having any tangible programme for the development of the state.”
But in a statement, the state PDP Chairman, Sunday Bisi, described the APC “as an irredeemably discredited platform swimming in political darkness and seeking redemption through false saintly garb and denial of impressive progress under the Adeleke administration.
Bisi added: “In the last nine months, the Adeleke governorship has been working tirelessly to clean up the mess the shameless accusers of today left behind through rebuilding the foundation of many sectors from infrastructure to health and education.”
Instead of APC to cover its head in shame for running the state aground, it found petty assignment in frivolous accusations which portray the opposition as sinking deeper into political oblivion.”
Also responding to the APC’s claim, the spokesperson for Adeleke, Olawale Rasheed, reminded the APC that former Governor, Gboyega Oyetola, held his maiden state executive council meeting on November 4, 2019, almost a year after the 2018 governorship election.
