Osun APC Governorship Primary Can Not Be Free And Fair – Youth Leader
  • PublishedFebruary 19, 2022

The Youth Leader of the State of Osun All Progressives Congress (APC), led by Alhaji Rasak Salinsile, Comrade Abosede Oluwaseun, has said that the primary of the APC to elect the flag bearer of the party in the July 16th governorship election holding today can not be free and fear.

The Youth Leader submitted to Arise TV morning flagship programme monitored in Osogbo on Saturday.

According to Abosede, from all indications and previous records of the activities of the party since the advent of Governor Gboyega Oyetola as a member of the National Caretaker and Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), nothing has been done free and fear and we don’t expect this to be different.

“The primary can not be fear when Governor Oyetola is a referee in a match he is also playing. He has used his position as a member of the CECPC to his advantage during the last congresses of our party. We have it on good authority that he singlehandedly picked members of the Election Committee for this primary.

“As we speak, we don’t have access to the voter’s register which is the membership register of our party, when our leaders requested for the voters register from the Abdulrahman Abdulrasak led committee, they ask that they should request it from the National Secretariat, we don’t know the names of those on the register as at this morning.”

Comrade Abosede also said Oyetola has violated the APC constitution with impunity, he said, “According to the APC constitution, Article 31(III), Oyetola ought to have resigned his membership of the CECPC 30 days before the primary.”

He added that “We don’t know the names of the returning officers for the election, however, we heard that they are local government councilors appointed by Governor Oyetola, so it is clear the election has already been compromised”.

He however said the Salinsile faction of the party will participate fully in the election and that they are behind the former Secretary of the State Government, Moshood Adeoti.
