The Unity Forum of Ondo State All Progressives Congress (APC) has demanded that the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde should leave Akure, the Ondo State capital immediately, having failed to deliver the State for his party, the PDP as he boasted.
According to the group’s Coordinator, Comrade Bolu Oluwaleye, the governors’s longer stay in Ondo State than necessary will be provocative and members of the APC should not be blame should there be any breakdown of law and order.
The Full Statement:
With the results already declared at the polling units in the ongoing governorship election in Ondo State, it is very clear that the All Progressive Congress, APC, is coasting home to victory.
We thank the people of Ondo State for their resilience and expression of trust in our party.
We are also sure that Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde must have seen the handwriting on the wall and he is advised to leave Akure, our State capital now, as he will be held responsible for any breakdown of law and order in the State.
Governor Makinde should leave Ondo State now because the game is up. He should go and report back to those who sent him to Ondo State that he is a puppet governor that lacks capacity for anything.
The “inarobo” (baby) governor should know that a longer stay in Ondo State than necessary will be provocative. Most importantly, if the governor could go as far as setting hoodlums to attack a former governor at the PDP rally, his stay in our State is capable of provoking even members of his party in the State to react and we should not be blamed.
As for the PDP, we sympathize with the party for building its castle in the air.
We wonder how the party could place its hope of winning Ondo State on a baby Governor like Makinde and we thank God that just as it happened in Kogi State, the governor will be leaving our State empty handed.
The governor can now return to Ibadan and continue with his showmanship, but he should remember that one day and very soon too, he will be made to account for the billions of Oyo State fund that he has wasted on his quest to extend his political territory to the entire Southwest and North Central, where he is fighting the former governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu for the control of PDP in the State.
