Oyo APC Knocks Makinde Over Comments On Ex-deputy


The All Progressives Congress in Oyo state (APC) has berated Governor Seyi Makinde over some comments he made against his erstwhile deputy, Rauf Olaniyan, describing the development as not only unfortunate and shameful but also least expected from a sitting Executive Governor of a state.

Makinde who featured on a radio programme, State Affairs on an Ibadan based radio station, responded to many questions bothering on the crisis confronting his party (PDP) at all levels, governance in Oyo state, his chances in 2023 among other things.

The governor also made some startling revelation on why he moved against Olaniyan who he got impeached by the State House of Assembly on July 18, 2022 and replaced immediately with Barrister Bayo Lawal.

Oyo APC while reacting to Makinde’s revelation said, in a statement issued yesterday by its Publicity Secretary, Olawale Sadare, that the governor deserved condemnation for what it described as “an act of Executive recklessness coming from a power drunk and vindictive character who found himself in power by default.

“It is most uncharitable for a governor to have sponsored the removal of somebody who shared a joint ticket with him midway to their tenure of office over hear-says and unsubstantiated allegations of disloyalty and corruption.
