OSOGBO—THE ruling All Progressives Congress, APC and opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Osun State yesterday sang discordant tunes over the desirability of the four-man commission being planned by the state government to probe the recent attack on the first Executive Governor of the state and governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Isiaka Adeleke
While the main opposition party, the PDP called on Governor Rauf Aregbesola not to engage in frivolities, but purposeful governance for the benefit of the people, APC insisted that people who were afraid of their deeds would go on ranting on the human right abuse exhibited by them.
Chairman of the party, Alhaji Gani Olaoluwa, in a statement said ‘’At the rate at which the APC government is setting up panels of inquiries, it is becoming an exhibition for cheap blackmail.”
The PDP chairman was of the opinion that the said panel of inquiry ‘’is another opportunity for Aregbesola to compensate his people. Instead, Aregbesola should set up panels to look into the debt burden of Osun; various failed projects and the collapse of the educational system.”
But the APC in its reaction by the party’s Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Mr. Kunle Oyatomi, said “Talk about the panel, anyone who is afraid of his deeds will go on ranting on the human right abuse exhibited by the so called public officials. It can only happen in the PDP where a co-aspirant in the governorship race will be so dealt with, in the manner Omisore and Adesiyan did.”
