The All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state of Osun has chided the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the state that it lacked the guts to advise governor Adegboyega Oyetola , on the new minimum wage he recently approved.
The party described it as disrespectful and insulting for a party who has been enmeshed in crisis to admonish a governor loved by the people.
The ruling APC in a statement signed by it Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, ,Barr Kunle Oyatomi was reacting to a statement credited to Alhaji YK Idowu,who charged Governor Adegboyega Oyetola to be ‘moderate in enslavement of Osun workers’.
Oyatomi said it was better the PDP maintain t its silence if it had nothing to contribute to the political development of the state rather than inciting violence.
He said, ‘it is disrespectful and insulting for a house of commotion, like that of Osun PDP which in less than six months, had had four state chairmen, to advise the people’s Governor of Osun, in whom the citizenry show appreciation.
“it is laughable, to see a blind man driving a vehicle, conveying healthy people with visibilities.
‘No one needs to be told that Governor Oyetola is workers’ friendly and from inception of his administration, he takes welfare of Osun workforce a priority. Only those who do not know the notoriety of the PDP in Osun will believe the nonsense they are saying.
‘Osun workers have identified themselves with Gov. Oyetola who is a promise keeper and prudent manager of resources; he doesn’t just talk, he does what he says he will do’.
According to the party, “if critics and political opponents are blind and deaf, the good people of Osun are more intelligent and responsible, who acknowledge and appreciate Gov Oyetola’s achievements in all ramifications.
