Makinde: Oyo APC blames Gov for worsening insecurity

If Governor Seyi Makinde is elected to a second term in office in 2023, according to the Oyo State branch of the All Progressives Congress, security in the state will be completely out of control.

The party made this claim in a statement made accessible to journalists in Ibadan on Monday, August 8, 2022.

Specifically, the statement was released by the State Secretary, Alhaji Tajudeen Olanite.

Makinde was accused by the opposition party of utilising state resources to support thugs; many of who have been implicated in the murder of certain state residents.

Also, the APC came out against a threat to assassinate Senator Teslim Kolawole Folarin.

Meanwhile, Folarin is also the head of the Senate Committee on Local Content; as well as the party’s candidate for governor of the state in 2023.

In a viral video, Alhaji Mukaila Lamidi, also known as “Auxiliary,” who was chosen by Makinde in February 2020 to serve as the chairman of the disciplinary committee for the Oyo State Government’s Park Management System, threatened Folarin’s life.

Further, the party claims that videos that have recently gone viral on social media have made the public aware of the threat made to Folarin’s life by Auxiliary.

The statement read in part, “Governor Seyi Makinde does not deserve a second term in office. During this outgoing first term of his, he has made our dear state retrogress in terms of thuggery and hooliganism; which the immediate past governor, the late Senator Abiola Ajimobi, tamed effectively for eight years.

“Apart from the threat to the life of the Distinguished Senator Folarin; the same Mukaila Auxiliary and scores of his thugs have clamped down on the billboards and posters of the opposition parties; especially the leading opposition party in the state.

Auxiliary has been leading heavily armed thugs to destroy APC billboards and posters in different parts of Ibadan and the state.

“The billboard destruction by Auxiliary and his thugs, engaged by the PDP government in Oyo State is tagged; ‘Operation Destroy APC Billboard and Posters’. They have also started the destruction of shops at Dugbe Alawo and Ogunpa; being operated by people they believed are not favorably disposed to the second-term bid of Governor Makinde.

“It is an attempt to silence opposition and turn Oyo into a one-party state.

”The PDP-led administration is very intolerant of opposition in the state…They know that they have failed woefully…Tthey don’t have any good thing to offer the good people of the state.

“But we have a mandate to rescue the state from the hands of these clueless, distracted, promise-breaking rookies in governance and promoters of thuggery fellows. We shall not be deterred by their antics. We shall ensure the liberation of the good people of this state from the claws of these political hawks that have been reported to be in government to steal, kill and destroy.”
