The main opposition party in Osun State(PDP) has cried out loud on the alleged Plans of the Osun State Government to Conduct Local Government elections.
According to PDP,the insinuation by governor Oyetola and the Speaker of the State House of Assembly,Hon. Timothy Owoeye to reverse the tenure extension of the caretaker Committees in charge of the Affairs of the Council areas is wrong and may spark unrest in the State,Leadership reports.
The PDP ,therefore ,called on President Muhammadu Buhari,the Ooni of Ife Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, and religious leaders in the State to prevail on Governor Oyetola and Owoeye to rescind their decision to conduct the Local Government Polls.
The letter was signed by the Chairman of the State PDP’s Media Management Committee,Prince Duran Odeyemi.
“We are calling on President Muhammadu Buhari,Ooni of Ife,Oba Adeyey Ogunwusi,General Overseer if the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye,Grand Imam of Osun State,Sheik Musa Animashaun,Araba Awo of Osogbo , Chief Ifayemi Elebuibon and other stakeholders to prevail on those that want to plunge the State into crises to desist from their evil plans.
“What moral justification does Oyetola have to want to conduct the Local Government elections after he had lost his Re-election bid?
What was he doing since the beginning of the year that he did not seem it fit to conduct the polls? Why did he renew the six-months tenure of these caretaker Committee members just one month ago only to wake up after a crushing defeat now and want to conduct election after he started writing his handover notes?
We know Oyetola has nothing to lose if everyone in Osun State dies having pauperized them in the last four years through many inhuman means .
But ,we are warning Owoeye also not to be a willing tool in this perilous adventure.
