I Remain With ADC, Voting For APC Is An Extension Of Poverty — Busari Adebisi


A former secretary to the state government and leader of the African Democratic Congress, ADC, Dr. Busari Adebisi, has debunked as untrue news of his exit from the party.

Adebisi, who is a member of the Unity Forum, a breakaway faction of the All Progressives Congress, APC, expressed high hope that his party will defeat the ruling APC and other opposition parties in the forthcoming gubernatorial election.

Candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the 2019 governorship and senatorial elections in Oyo State and Oyo South senatorial district, Engr. Seyi Makinde and Dr Kola Balogun, respectively, had visited the old man and claimed they were endorsed.

At a press conference at his Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, residence, Adebisi explained that “ADC is a rebirth of the Late Oyo governor, Chief Lamidi Adesina which is founded on the ideals of social welfarism with focus on the ordinary people of Oyo state.

“It’s a new dawn for party politics and the people of Oyo State. Since the time of Late Chief Lam Adesina, we have been influenced by the flair for the social democratic pursuit to our people but the ruling party derailed in terms of ideological and democratic standards, which some of us stand for, hence our defection.”

“With our formidable ADC, we intend to relive the heritage of the Great Lam and rescue Oyo people from the excruciating experiences the current government has thrown them into for that past eight years.

“We are dissatisfied by the groaning posture, impoverishment of our people in Oyo state. We have enormous pity for them which has spurred us to salvage them from the cloaks. It’s not in the interest of the people to support any continuity of this administratjon. Such is only tantamount to an extension in suffering. We must and are ready to return our people to social welfarism, which our party stands for”, he noted.

On the stakes of ADC in the coming election, he stressed that “ADC remains the only ideologically-progressive party in Oyo state. Some politicians who flock around us willingly opted out when they observed that our mandates do not incline with their selfish interest.”.

“I want to say unequivocally that ADC will win the forthcoming gubernatorial election because we place man as the centrepiece of our policy.”

Asked about the formation of the ADC in a short period, he quickly reminisced on the outcome of their congress which held in Liberty Stadium in 2018.

“Having figured out that the APC was on a decaying path which was likely to distort our personal characters, myself and a train of likeminds had our maiden meeting at Liberty stadium where critical deliberations were made.”

“Options of many parities to merge with came up and we eventually took a decisive agreement in the long run to benefit the Oyo people,” he added.

This is as Adebisi emphasized that internal crisis that arose from the choice of gubernatorial candidate has been resolved and all litigations by aggrieved members would be withdrawn from the court.

“Meanwhile, let me quickly clear that Dr. Kola Balogun remains a good, soft-spoken and intellectual person I cherish and still keep good relationship with despite his exit to another party after losing the party’s ticket.

“I couldn’t stop him from seeking greener pasture to obtain senatorial ticket from PDP but he regards ADC as his second home and relates well with us”, he added.
