OSOGBO — Both the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, and the main oppossition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Osun State have sharply disagreed over allegation of an attempt to cause mayhem in the state by a leading governorship aspirant from the opposition party before next year’s governorship election.

The interim state chairman of APC, Mr. Adelowo Adebiyi alleged that part of the plot of the said politician was to issue uniform similar to those of the Osun Youths Employment Scheme, OYES, to hoodlums brought to the state to cause mayhem in some parts of the state, especially Osogbo, the state capital.

But the PDP chairman, Alhaji Gani Olaoluwa challenged the APC chairman to name the so-called governorship aspirant if he was sure of his facts.

Alhaji Olaoluwa asked if the people from Osun State who were arrested in Imo State and who paraded themselves as election observers during the November 16 governorship election in Anambra State were from PDP.

He added that all the four aspirants of the PDP were people of integrity who had served Nigeria meritoriously in different capacities.

“Alhaji Fatai Akinbade was a chairman of our party in the state before becoming SSG; Hon. Wole Oke was a two-time House of Representatives member and chairman, House Committee on Defence; Senator Olasunkanmi was a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and also a fomer minister and Senator Iyiola Omisore is also a two-term senator and former deputy governor of this state. So APC should tell the whole world who among them is capable of causing crisis,” he added.

Adebiyi stated that the said politician had concluded arrangements to cause crisis in the state through his sponsored uniform men whowould appear like OYES cadets on some streets in major towns in the state.
