Ex-lawmaker To Makinde: Tyrannical Cabal Working To Discredit You — ‘Coalition’ Dominating PDP

    A former member of the Oyo State House of Assembly, Eesuola Ahammed Babatunde, has voiced out his displeasure over the sharing of political appointments in the state and especially in Atiba local government where he hails from.
    This was just as he said that there exists a tyrannical cabal working to discredit the good work of Seyi Makinde, governor of Oyo State.
    Eesuola, who is the chairman of Community and Social Development Agency, CSDA, said that members of the coalition group are enjoying more than Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, loyalists. Though it has been withdrawn, Eesuola cited the case of the recently appointed council secretary, supervisory councilors, special assistants.

    An Open letter to GSM on Imbalance in sharing of Atiba LG and Soro LCDA PDP Supervisory Councillors and Special Advisers slots: My Protest
    By Eesuola Babatunde
    Your novel idea of the sharing formula and template of the above subject matter is highly commendable, that is a demonstration of honesty and sincerity to fulfill agreements. It isn’t pretence but that is who you are, only God has the adequate reward for you and Almighty will certainly bless you more sir.
    The sharing formula of 70% (PDP) and 30% (Coalition) is a welcome gesture, however I wish to complain on the recent list circulating round, which totally go against your PDP 70% and Coalition 30% sharing template in Atiba LG and Soro LCDA. We were told that you have approved the list and you have instructed that, they should be sworn for and assume office yesterday Monday. But to God be the glory the lies crashed by your directive to withdraw the list across the 33LGs.
    Your Excellecy Sir, the list is devil incarnate; I was earlier constrained to complain because it was difficult for me to find out if truly you approved such a list. But as it is clear that the list emanated from a tyrannical cabal working days and night to discredit your good work and intention for the good people of Oyo State and those party members that worked for you. Sir I can now complain and protest against the list. May I crave your indulgence to forgive me about this mode of communication with you, sir it is as a result of urgency it required, and moreover, I want people to contradict my claims.
    The Atiba/Soro list like other local governments was a total fraud. Sir you will be surprised to know that out of 10 supervisory councilors and 2 secretaries total 12, atiba PDP got just 5 slots and the rest 7 goes to Coalition group but using PDP disguised. Also on the special adviser list, only 2 out of 10 was given to PDP the remaining 8 goes to the Coalition in disguised of PDP. This list was completely in a gross violation of your 70% and 30% sharing directives and it’s not acceptable to PDP members in Atiba/Soro local government.  
    Therefore, I wish to suggest for your consideration and approval the following sharing formula for Atiba LG and Soro LCDA. 70% of 12 supers and secretary is 8 slots for PDP and 4 slots for Coalition and 70% of 10 Special assistant is 7 slots for PDP and 3 slots for Coalition.
    RESERVE FOR GSM       1 SA
     The following are JUSTIFICATIONS for the above sharing;
      1. Prior to the 2019 election and the period of electioneering campaign up till the present moment, the PDP was structured into the above three grouping in Atiba and Soro. Every Leaders, Members and Executives were shared within these three groups.
      2. I had earlier reported to your Excellency sir, that the 70% councillorship slots given to us was shared between the two group of Oyeleke taken 5 and Olunloyo taken 2 councillors and Vice Chairmanship. Therefore, it is not out of place to compensate Eesuola Group with Secretary and two supers and two additional SAs.
    • The Council Chairperson, Hon. Mojisola Olakojo wasn’t part of us abinitio, she was not with us during the formative period, the electioneering period and she wasn’t around throughout the 2019 election. Sir she only enjoyed your grace, as an ardent loyalist to you, I was the first to accept your verdict of choosing her for us in Atiba. I and my group worked so much to uphold your decision of her. Therefore given her Chief of staff and Personal Assistance should be okay sir. 
    1. No other coalition group should still share from the PDP 70% that is not even enough for us, whence you had given them their 30%. Therefore the issue of WABKEM group who is part of coalition shouldn’t come up at all in PDP slots. 
    1. Sir, the above suggestions might not be 100% perfect but it is far better than the disastrous list earlier circulated. However, if I may remind you sir, we have earlier submitted our list (PDP) list dully signed by Myself, Barr. Oyeleke and Hon. Olunloyo to you, kindly check. 
    1. Moreover, I will advise your Excellency to ensure that all the necessary stakeholders in each LGs across the State were consulted directly by you and get their input in the selections of the final list. Also kindly disregard any forms of castigation of your genuine loyalists by some individuals who have formed a destructive cabal to turn your friends to your enemies through castigations and blackmailing, please your Excellency do not allow that sir.
    Thanks your Excellency for always listen and act on genuine concerns like this, am optimistic therefore that you will give this a thorough consideration and eventual approval.
    Yours faithful
