The attention of the Oyo State Chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been drawn to a libellous publication by the Oyo State APC in which they accused PDP of being behind the assassination of one of their Leaders.

From the recent happenings within Oyo State All Progressive Congress (APC), it is an undisputable fact that the crisis bedeviling the party is too enormous for her State leadership to handle. This might have snowballed into a loss of life and glaring divisions within the party.

In our own candid opinion, Oyo State security architecture has greatly improved from what it used to be in the last 8 years, as the high rate of kidnapping experienced during former Governor Ajimobi led APC administration has drastically reduced to the bearest minimum and thanks to the leadership style of Governor Seyi Makinde coupled with high level of professionalism being display by the Honourable Commissioner of Police, Mr Shina Olukolu and his gallant officers.

PDP as a responsive political party wishes to express her sympathy to the family of Alh. Oreitan Babatunde who was murdered by yet to be known assailant(s), however men of the Nigeria Police and most especially the Commissioner of Police has to swing into action in other to expose those behind the dastardly act.

For the sake of record, a serving State House of Assembly Member was assassinated when APC was ruling the State, the assassination of the Vice Chairman of NURTW and Hon Olatoye Sugar, several people including a medical student lost their life at Iwo Road under the last APC administration. The Soka dungeon where several life were lost is still fresh in everyone’s memory apart from Popoyemoja and Idi Arere mayhems of which the APC government couldn’t stop before it consumed human life.

The deceased though a veteran politician during his lifetime but was never a threat to PDP as our party defeated APC with a landslide margin throughout all the 12 wards in Ona Ara local government during the last election, hence we appreciate contrary opinions and challenges as it help us to do more for the people in terms of dividends of democracy and good governance.

Lastly, the APC leadership at the National level are advised to nip in the bud the festering crisis within Oyo State APC as modern politics has gone beyond a do or die affairs. While we reiterate that the current APC leadership in Oyo State is incapable, inexperienced, ineffectual and obsolete.
