THE Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State of Osun, Comrade Wole Adunola has called on followers of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola and those of the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola to guard against comments capable of polarising the party.

Adunola said the name-calling and vituperations that greeted the recent comments made by Aregbesola while revalidating his party membership last week in Ilesa were needless among the followers who are members of the same party.

Making reference to the recent meeting held at Chief Bisi Akande’s residence in Ila-Orangun, Adunola stressed that no matter the differences between Oyetola and Aregbesola, it would later be resolved amicably in the absence of the followers.

He said: “While the Interior Minister is entitled to his opinions, I am however sad that within the same family, our members resorted into calling names and throwing caution into the wind without considering the consequences of such actions. They have all forgotten that whatever perceived differences today shall be resolved without any of the followers on the seat.

“The recent example was the close-door between the Governor Oyetola and the Interior Minister himself, Aregbesola, at the instance of Chief Bisi Akande and our National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The quartet held a meeting for hours without any of the followers near the meeting room; this should be a lesson that no matter the level of misunderstanding today, it will be resolved without those puffing embers of discord around the vicinity.

“As a party, we shall continue to attract valuable politicians into our fold, politics is a game of number and that is the basic strategy of politics globally. We want to assure our members and leaders that our party is big enough to accommodate every interest; no one can play other’s role. Every sane individual is important in politics, irrespective of class, religion and other social discrimination.”

Adunola said Osun APC still remains an indivisible entity, adding that the governor has given consolidation a perfect definition through many impactful programmes across the length and breadth of Osun to the admiration of resident and stakeholders.
