A group within Oyo State People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has tongue-lashed Chief Bayo Lawal’s for making inciting derogatory remarks on Engr. Femi Babalola a.k.a (Jogor) on a radio program during the course of the week.
Lawal on Saturday also described Barr. Alli, Engr. Femi Babalola, Alhaji Olopoeyan and others as Political chickens and immature.
“Many of those complaining about Governor Seyi Makinde have received their pays before the election, hence they have no reason to complain” he had said.
But the group, while reacting to the State’s Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters, described Pa Bayo Lawal as an epitome of sychophancy and disunity in Oyo PDP.
The statement reads in part:
“He was popularly refered to as an Agbada carrier of Baba Adedibu by those who were close to the circle. One now wonders how true it is when this same man claims he worked for Ladoja. The big question is, in what capacity? Is it possible for a house boy to “make” his Boss? We would like to state categorically that Governor Seyi Makinde needs to be wary of sycophants like Bayo Lawal in his government and in the Party in general. I am of the opinion that those defamatory statements credited to Pa Bayo Lawal are unfortunate and not in sync with someone of his age”
“Gov Seyi Makinde should be kind enough to appreciate Engr Babalola for his tremendous efforts at uniting youths in the Party and keeping the flag of the party flying at every quarters where he has influence”.
“The likes of Bayo Lawal, shouldn’t have a place in this govt, afterall he was part of staff of Engr Makinde while he was contesting for the post of Governor of Oyo State”.
“We would like to reiterate that our Patron Engr. Femi Babalola (Jogor) is not a man of cheap values and suggesting that he was paid off for the selfless sacrifices he made that ensured that Engineer Seyi Makinde became Governor of Oyo State is quite pitiable. We hereby challenge Pa Lawal to mention how and where his Excellency paid our Patron”
“In conclusion, we are in PDP because of Jogor and he has been a benefactor and mentor to us. We would like to warn Pa Bayo Lawal, the almost 70 year old commissioner for Local govt to stop maligning a good party man. Jogor has been a pillar and a rock in the party. We will not be cowed into his pranks to play his jeun jeun moves”.
