AUTHENTIC AFENIFERE speaks….counters Afenifebi.
Afenifere Egbe Ilosiwaju Yoruba heartily congratulates all the elected Local Government Officials of Oyo State on the recent restoration of their mandates earlier hijacked by the Executive Governor of Oyo State HE Engr Seyi Makinde in order to pave way for the installation of his puppets across the length and breadth of the state.
We are delighted that the Governor’s attempt at taking Oyo back to the days of brazen impunity where less than half of the assembly members would claim success at impeachment of a Governor, contrary to the provisions of our laws has not only been check mated by our courts , but the law enforcement authority have also clearly taken side with the rule of law in order to uproot this illegality.
We appeal to HE Engr Seyi Makinde Executive Governor of Oyo State to cooperate with Nigeria in her march towards uprooting the culture of impunity and lawlessness which characterized the first 16 years of our democracy, and embrace the politics of tolerance which is the bedrock of democracy.
We commend the elected local government officials for calmly pursuing the restoration of their illegally withdrawn mandate through the law courts and appeal to Mr Governor to exercise patience and restraints while allowing the elected officials to run their tenure in peace in the spirit of harmonious partisanship.
