As State of Osun 2018 gubernatorial election preparation is at the top gear, the All Progressives Party (APC) has maintained that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is too disorganized and maladjusted to rule the people.
According to the statement made available to OSUN DEFENDER over the weekend by the Party’s Director of Publicity, Barr. Kunle Oyatomi also alleged that the orientation of PDP is ‘greed’.
Oyatomi stated that, “The intractable power struggle within Osun PDP is symptomatic of the greed and inordinate ambition of an individual within the party, who wants to be Governor at all costs regardless of the fact that he is politically spent, unpopular and technically unqualified to run for that office.
Oyatomi was of the Opinion that the bigwig of the Party (PDP) is suffering from deficiency in leadership acquirement.
He said, “The rank and file of Osun PDP leadership appears to have no idea what they want to do to make the State better. The only thing they have been doing in the last seven years is to concoct and spread lies against the person and actions of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.
“PDP has even lost the ability to articulate a substitute plan to that of Aregbesola-led APC government. Truth is that the PDP has no plan because it is empty; so there is nothing to articulate anyway,” Oyatomi said.
He argued that the Party is so empty saying, “One of their leaders the other day was engaged in a debate on air with APC official over what legacy either has to its credit in Osun. This PDP leader sited payment of salaries to workers as PDP’s best social legacy throughout the seven years they were in power.”
“When the PDP governed Osun between 2003 and 2010, the salaries paid to workers was slightly over N100 billion. But since 2010 till now, (also seven years period), Aregbesola has paid workers over N220 billion; which is twice as much as the PDP could afford.”Oyatomi concluded.
It could be recalled that Adagunodo faction of PDP, State of Osun recently showdown reneged harmonization template signed in Abuja which led to attack by Faforiji group saying, Adagunodo faction leaders lack management.
