The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State has declared that the crisis within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is multifaceted, and entirely driven by the reckless ambition of one man against the run of affairs to become governor at all costs.
In a statement issued on Thursday, Osun APC Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Kunle Oyatomi Esq, said, “What Mr. Sarafa Tunji Ishola, the mediator in Osun PDP imbroglio said about the PDP planning to sack APC from office in 2018, is just silly talk.”
He quoted Sarafa as having said in Osogbo on Tuesday that his mediating committee was in Osun to reposition PDP to sack the APC from government come 2018 governorship poll.
The APC further stated that, “We wouldn’t blame him much because he is ignorant of Osun politics.
“Secondly, the exercise of bringing the divided PDP together, which he claimed to have succeeded in, doesn’t add up.
“The division within the PDP in Osun is skin-deep and besides, the economic problem in the state of Osun is nationwide and not peculiar to Osun. So, if the PDP thinks it can capitalise on the economic downturn, it’s just fooling itself, because essentially (PDP) created the problem with its kleptocratic rule that wrecked the Nigerian economy between 1999 and 2015, and put the country in recession.
“They stole the country blind and the monumental stealing made it impossible for us to withstand the fall in oil prices.
“The Aregbesola-led APC government did not steal Osun’s money, neither was it reckless. All over the state, there is evidence of what Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola and the APC government did with Osun’s money that has never been seen or done in the state, since it was created.
“Sarafa should be told if he’s ignorant, that if the PDP could not win Osun in 2014 with the entire resources of the Federal Government at its disposal, there’s no magic that will make it to win the state now, because then as now, the PDP told all sorts of criminal lies against the APC, did what was demonically possible to disparage the person of the Governor, Osun people were not swayed by the lies and the smear campaign, there’s no way they will be accepted now.
“It’s a pity that because the PDP in Osun is blind, they have equally made Sarafa, the mediator, blind. He came to Osun but could not see, he could not feel and he could not hear what’s evidently going on in Osun.”
