The Chairman of the caucus group under the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Osun State, The Osun Progressives (TOP) Elder ‘Lowo Adebiyi has condemned the insinuation making the round that member of the APC Appeal Committee was attacked at the party secretariat in Osogbo.
According to the TOP Chairman in a press statement issued and made available to newsmen in Osogbo on Saturday, “my attention has been drawn to a malicious statement and photograph being circulated by some unscrupulous persons serving in the Government of Governor Gboyega Oyetola claiming that I Elder ‘Lowo Adebiyi, led some thugs to attack members of the Appeal Committee sent by the All Progressive Congress from the headquarters of the party to look into the issues bordering on the last ward congress in Osun.
“For the avoidance of doubt, thousands of very loyal and committed APC members today (Saturday) stormed Osogbo, the state capital and the secretariat of our party to register their protests over the last ward congress which was held two weeks ago and to submit their petitions ward by ward to the committee”.
The statement said further that, ” they were also there to let the Appeal Committee be aware that the so-called Consensus arrangement which Governor Oyetola and Prince Famodun and their cohorts opted for was their own arrangement and not those of the majority of our party members in the state.
“Where did the issue of leading thugs to attack Appeal Committee members arise? What those spreading that propaganda wanted to hide is the fact that the thugs they sent to threaten thousands of the APC members who were at the secretariat were promptly overpowered and they had to flee when they realized that the job they were sent to do was an impossible one”.
Elder Adebiyi thereby challenge those behind the misleading statement and photograph in circulation to name the particular Appeal Committee member who was attacked.
“As for us, we are determined to ensure that this party is not allowed to sink the way the Oyetola and his co-travelers are going.
“I hereby call on all well-meaning and right-thinking Nigerians and media houses to disregard the poorly executed propaganda for that is what it is” Elder Adebiyi concluded.
