Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned the protest by supporters of Interior Minister, Rauf Aregbesola, against the state leadership of the party and the administration of Governor Gboyega Oyetola.
Placard-carrying Aregbesola supporters under the aegis of The Osun Progressives (TOP) embarked on the protest in Osogbo, the state capital, from under the iconic Olaiya Flyover junction, where they were publicly mocking the governor and leadership of the party over the loss of the July 16, 2022 governorship election. State chairman of the party, Prince Gboyega Famodun, in a statement by his Media Adviser, Kola Olabisi, in Osogbo, yesterday, described the protest as shameful, callous, primitive, selfish, wicked, misplaced and inconsiderate.
He flayed Aregbesola’s supporters for openly working against the success of Governor Oyetola at the polls and to return canvassing the restructuring of the party through a sponsored protest.
“When I heard that the supporters of the immediate past governor of our state, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, were protesting, I thought my memory was playing me false as they cannot insulate themselves from whatever might be the current plight of the APC in Osun State. Assuming but not conceding that there are challenges within the party, protesters should be told that they lack moral right to either suggest or effect any likely solution as it is on record that they massively and collectively worked against Oyetola, the APC governorship candidate in the just-concluded election in line with the series of their threat.
