‘News That Tegbe Didn’t Work For Adelabu False,’ Says Group


A group working for the political aspiration of Engr Joseph Tegbe, who was one of the governorship aspirants on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Team Tegbe, has reacted to news making the round that its principal didn’t work for the candidate of the party, Oloye Adebayo Adelabu.

This was made known known in a statement sent to OYO INSIGHT.

Adelabu lost the election to Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate, Engr Seyi Makinde.

OYO INSIGHT learnt that Sahara Reporters has published a story earlier this week detailing how Adelabu allegedly confronted Tegbe for working against him during the just concluded governorship poll.

TEAM TEGBE CLEARS THE AIR…continues to unify Oyo APC.

“Yet  each  man  kills  the  thing  he  loves

By  each  let  this  be  heard

Some  do  it  with  a  bitter  look

Some  with  a  flattering  word

The  coward  does  it  with  a  kiss

The  brave  man  with  a  sword”

  Oscar  Wilde

Our  attention  has  been  drawn  to  news  circulating  on  the  social  media  that  Engineer  Tegbe  did  not  work  for  the  success  of  Oloye  Adebayo  Adelabu.  The  news  in  it’s  entirety  is  false  and  a  product  of  myopic  thinking  from  those  with  mischievous  ulterior  motives  aimed  at  casting  aspersions  on  the  person  of  the  amiable  Joseph  Tegbe  so  as  to  lower  or  undermine  his  estimation  in  the  mind  of  APC  leadership  and  sabotage  future  assigned  role  that  may  be  given  to  him.

It  is  imperative  to  state  that  after  the  infamous  Oyo  state  APC  primaries,  our  principal;  Engineer  Olasunkanmi  Joseph  Tegbe  convened  numerous  meetings  of  his  supporters  in  Ibadan  and  Oyo  town  respectively  where  he  urged  everyone  to  stand  by  the  party  while  specifically mentioning that our candidate is Adebayo Adelabu, evidences abound.

It  would  be  sacrosanct  to  call  for  evidences,  witnesses  and  case  studies  across our well established  structure  in  the  33  local  government areas in Oyo  State. This  can  be  verified  from  the  levels  of  our  dear  party  structures,  APC.  Results  of  where  TeamTegbe  members  worked tirelessly are quite evident and that is why it is quite provoking for Chief Adebayo Adelabu  to  allege  that  our  principal; Joseph Tegbe  did  not  support  him, really?

We are convinced that the aim of his recent outburst is simply to subtly sabotage the proposed assigned role of honourable minister to be given and  reiterated severally to our principal  and  party faithful who were so aggrieved  that  the  Gubernatorial  ticket  was denied our principal.

Note,  this  was  well  announced  after  Joseph  Tegbe  heeded  to  the  plea  to  step  down  for  the  party  consensus  in  the  interest  of  peace  and  unity.  

Adelabu Bayo needs to acknowledge that  you  cannot  eat  your  cake  and  have  it,  Tegbe  is  the  minister  and  Ajimobi  has  said  it  and  the  heaven  has  sanctioned.  President  Muhammad  Buhari  shall  approve  this  time,  remember  he  was  nominated  in  2015  when  Adelabu  was  no where  in  APC.  

We  hereby  call all and sundry that  they  should join us  in  prayers  that  the  peaceful and unifying  personality  in  Tegbe  deserves support  and  we  see  a  better  representation  of  Oyo  in  his  gentlemanliness.  He clearly demonstrated this even when it was  obvious  he  was  denied for  Adelabu to fly the party flag.

Suffice to say that despite  good gestures from JT,  it  is  instructive  to  state  that  Adelabu  since  the  primary  refused  to  initiate  ANY  reconciliatory role  among  the  co-contestants, always tagged individuals as Tegbe supporters and  in  open  display  of  arrogance, stood  aloof  to  them  yet  Tegbe has  been  unifying  the  progressives  across  the  divides  in  order  to  jump  start  Oyo  APC  in  no  time  after  the  terrible  loss.

God bless our party
