The Osun state All Progressives Congress (APC) has warned the state governor, Ademola Adeleke, to stop arrogating virtues he does not possess.
The Osun APC made this known in a statement signed by its state chairman, Tajudeen Lawal on the heels of the 32 anniversary of the state’s creation.
The party also disclosed that Governor Adeleke had claimed that he is a democrat par excellence and that he has been administering Osun State strictly according to the rule of law.
The governor had reportedly said this during a three-day executive retreat organized by the African Office of the United Nations Development Programme in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda.
Adeleke was dressing himself in a borrowed robe in a foreign land in order to shield his political rapaciousness and repugnant do-or-die philosophy to campaigns and elections.
It would be stranger than fiction for Adeleke to lay claim to the rule of law in his administration when it is glaring from his past records that the distance between himself and the rule of law is farther than that of the Moon and the Earth.
Whoever has followed the trajectory of Adeleke and his devotees would not agree less that the Osun State governor is a brutish enforcer of the rule of force, as against the rule of law he professes, right from the period of the election campaigns in the state where he did not allow for free and fair electoral processes.
It was an affront on rationality that Adeleke and other desperate politicians in his blood-sucking party would use the occasion of the Kigali retreat ( designed for upright, godly, honourable and serious public officers) to lecture participants on free and fair elections when the blood of the innocent APC members they trampled upon to win all the elections is yet to dry.
It is high time Adeleke stopped the lie-peddling and faced his constitutional responsibility of giving the state effective governance as he promised citizens during electioneering.
“The Osun governor should apologize for the show of shame in Rwanda,” the APC chairman implored Adeleke.
