APC, PDP trade words over Adeleke’s public engagement in Osun

The Osun state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), have traded words over the public engagement held by governor Ademola Adeleke tagged ‘Ipade Imole.’

The state chairman of the APC, Tajudeen Lawal, in a statement issued by the party’s Director of Media and Information, Kola Olabisi, Friday, said the crude way that Adeleke handled his first feedback programme was nothing but a display of the theatre of absurdity.

According to APC, the totality of the conduct of governor Adeleke throughout the duration of the programme revealed that he is ill-prepared or lacks in quantum the natural endowments required to successfully govern the state.

The APC described the programme as ‘time-wasting, saying “Adeleke talked much without substance afforded the people of the state a golden opportunity to discover that the governor is not only an expert in dancing but he isunrivaledlled political comedian who trivializes serious matters affecting the state for lack of not knowing what to do, how to do it and when to do same.

“Apart from the fact that Adeleke was superfluous and empty, the whole exercise turned out to be a tirade whereby the governor was openly demanding to be clapped for by his burdened and embarrassed audience,” APC added.

But, the PDP in a statement by its chairman, Sunday Bisi, warned Lawal to desist from constantly embarrassing the state with his rudderless opinion about governance. 

He described the current state of the opposition party in the state as not only painful but shameful, saying that the actions and statements emerging from APC have constantly shown why the Osun people rejected them across the state.

“Despite being a dominant force in the state for 12 years, APC’s inability to adapt to a role outside of power has drawn scrutiny. This transition from governance to opposition seems to have left the APC struggling to effectively engage with the public. Thereby amplifying their rudderless nature,” PDP said.
