Governor of the State of Osun, Gboyega Oyetola, has again appealed to the members of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in the State to give peace a chance and allow the ongoing appeal process run its full course.
He also condemned what he termed the “unruly behavior” exhibited by some aggrieved members of the party at the APC Secretariat in Osogbo, saying no sane society would condone any act of lawlessness.
The governor has therefore directed security operatives to take charge of the party secretariat to prevent any further break down of law and order.
Oyetola who sympathised with individuals who sustained injuries, called on security operatives to fish out perpetrators and ensure justice was served.
In a press statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Ismail Omipidan, on Saturday, the Governor Oyetola noted that Osun and its people are known for peace and urged all to avoid acts that could tarnish the State’s reputable image.
He further noted that political intolerance was injurious to the unity and collective peace of the State.
While appealing for calm, the Governor also said that government would not tolerate any act of criminality or violence in any part of the State under the guise of politics or any guise whatsoever.
“I appeal to party members, especially those who have already filed their petitions before the Appeal Committee over the conduct of the last Ward Congress in the State to sheathe their swords and toe the line of peace and the law.
“Since the matter is already before the Appeal Committee, they should allow the process to run its full course. We are known for peace as a people. We should do all in our power to sustain that recognition in our collective interest,” the Governor said.
