Team Tegbe To Adelabu: Accept Your Defeat In Good Faith, Stop Harassing Our Members


A social-cultural group, Team Tegbe,  comprising of the friends of Engr. Olasunkanmi Tegbe, has advised the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in last month’s governorship election, Oloye Bayo Adelabu to behave as a gentleman and stop the alleged harassment of its members.

In a statement by its spokesperson, Comrade Toyin Salam, explained that the group is not a political association. “It is made up of friends of Engr Joseph Tegbe who are not necessarily members of the APC but who strongly subscribe to the view that their friend has enormous capacity to take Oyo State to greater heights reason why they backed him in his bid to secure the governorship ticket of the APC. Once Tegbe was robbed of the ticket each member of the team went to their different political and social habitat.”

OYO INSIGHT recalled that Tegbe and others were asked to step down few hours to the October 1, 2018 governorship primaries of the APC.

Adelabu, who got the party’s ticket, would later be defeated by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Engr Seyi Makinde.

The group further explained that “Tegbe’s political structure remains the Tegbe Vanguard whose members are rooted in APC and not Team Tegbe.”

It added that the clarification becomes necessary in view of the alleged  “embarrassment and harassment of friends of Engr Tegbe have been suffering in the hands of Bayo Adelabu and/or his agents and proxies before and after the governorship election.”

“We wish to advise Adelabu to take his loss in the last governorship election in good faith and be a gentleman just as Tegbe did when he was robbed of the APC governorship ticket last October. If he does not desist from these ignoble acts, he will be sending wrong signals to the people of Oyo State about his maturity .

“Finally, we wish to state unequivocally that the friends of Engr Tegbe will use all legally available means to resist further harassment, embarrassment and / or any form of intimidation from the Adelabu camp,” the statement added.
