Oyetola, Famodun Deceiving APC Members On Reconciliation- TOP:
The Chairman of The Osun Progressives (TOP), a caucus of the All Progressives Congress(APC), in the State of Osun, Rev Adelowo Adebiyi has decried the ongoing rumour about reconciliation of stakeholders in the party.
Speaking today at the general meeting of TOP in Osogbo, Adebiyi noted that the rumoured reconciliation was a ruse and ploy by the Governor Adegboyega Oyetola’s group, IleriOluwa, to deceive the public and annihilate members of TOP.
The former Osun APC Chairman stated that the Governor’s group deliberately threw the reconciliation rumour out to buy public sympathy and at the same time deal TOP members more deadly blows to make them submissive to their wish.
Adebiyi stated that contrary to the lies been peddled, every events happening within the Osun APC has shown that the IleriOluwa group leaders and members are deeply averse to the concept of reconciliation.
He noted that it is an irony that the Governor’s group which has been unleashing terror on innocent APC members who belong to TOP is the one deceiving unsuspecting members of the public with a call for reconciliation.
Adebiyi noted that it is irreconcilable to be attacking people with one hand and be mouthing reconciliation on the other hand, maintaining that God abhors lies and all liars will not prosper.
The TOP leader recalled that thugs known in Ile-Ife to belong to Oyetola’s Commissioner for Home Affairs, Taju Lawal had viciously attacked APC members at their Ife East Local Government meeting just five days ago.
He also recalled that a former commissioner, Biyi Odunlade’s house in Ife, two of Aregbesola’s aides (Olateju Adunni and Abosede Oluwaseun) and Odo Otin Local Government meeting of APC were attacked.
The APC leader also recalled that members of the party were also attacked at the party Secretariat on August 14, 2021 where they had gone to defend Ward Congress petitions.
Adebiyi said: “In capping all of these was the criminalizing of seven of our leaders who were taken to court in anticipation of been sent to detention.
“It is our views that the Governor’s group in cahoots with the party have something up their sleeves when they spewed out the reconciliation talk without any tangible thing to show for it.
We were not deceived to find out that they had two fold intention to; show the world that TOP is recalcitrant and averse to resolution of the disquiet in the party thus get cheap public sympathy and to expose us to more virulent attacks by commissioned agents.
“Information has it that a popular cult group on four tertiary institutions” campuses and six notorious hoodlum gangs in Osogbo, Ede, Ile-Ife and Ilesa have been engaged to start attacks on individual TOP members, especially the leadership with instruction to kill, if necessary.
“May I note that the Governor’s group have no intention to have any reconciliation as the body language of the Governor and the party Chairman shows that clearly. The duo are so vexed with the idea of having the party rebranded for a more purposeful achievement that they have not uttered a word on any of all of the stated attacks so far and lies are being told of moves for reconciliation.
“On behalf of all patriotic and peace loving members and leaders of TOP, we state in categorical terms that we are not averse to genuine reconciliation with altruistic motive for the benefit of all members but we will not succumb to deceit as beini presently peddled aimed at demonising us.
“May I once more call on the National Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee to take a dispassionate look at the Osun situation for the sake of having a goal oriented party that serve useful purpose. I add the imperative need of the security agencies to be more up and doing in it sanctimonious duty of securing lives of citizens.”
