Reacting to his expulsion, the Commissioner for Political Affairs in Osun State, Dr. Biyi Odunlade, described the state leadership of the APC as jesters, saying they lack authority to suspend him.
According to Odunlade, the purported expulsion is from the IleriOluwa faction of the APC, describing it as laughable.
Odunlade maintained that the APC is confused and has embarked on comedy to remain in the news.
He said: “The purported expulsion is laughable; it is not even from main party organs, it is from IleriOluwa faction and they are best ignored. They are just unserious comedians; and they must play to the gallery and talk to be in the news.
“APC as a party crumbled when some self-centred people decided to wage unnecessary war against Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola. The party ought to respect Aregbesola but they didn’t, so I have moved on.
“APC leadership is just directionless; they don’t know what they want. What do you even expect from a party that parades losers as its leaders. The current state Chairman of the party, Tajudeen Lawal couldn’t even win his ward and local government.
“The expulsion is laughable; they are comedians. As it stands in Osun today, APC is empty because the strength of the party has been denied. They should cover their faces in shame for failing to win a seat at the national assembly and manipulatively won a seat out of 26 in the State House of Assembly.
“It is a shame that they are consoling themselves with the Federal Government; they know the market is closed against them in Osun.”
