Osun APC, PDP clash over bid to woo transport unions

The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused Governor Ademola Adeleke of resorting to desperate measures to secure a second term in office.

According to the APC, the governor is forcing commercial motorcycle and tricycle riders in the state to swear an oath of allegiance to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

In a statement signed by the Osun APC Chairman, Tajudeen Lawal, the party alleged that Adeleke is forcing the riders to swear an oath with Ogun, the god of iron, promising continuous support for the PDP in future elections.

The APC also claimed that Adeleke is going around the state, wooing back PDP members who were allegedly driven away by his administration’s perceived injustices.

However, the Osun PDP Chairman, Sunday Bisi, dismissed the allegations as false and a desperate attempt to discredit the ruling party and governor.

Bisi argued that Adeleke’s impressive performance in terms of welfare and infrastructure development has earned him widespread support across various sectors, making it unnecessary for him to force anyone to take an oath.

Bisi also accused the APC of trying to cover up its own failures during its tenure in office, which was marked by poor governance and financial mismanagement.

He claimed that only “parasitic elements” like the APC would think that Adeleke needs to force support when he has already earned it through his administration’s achievements.

The exchange of accusations between the two parties reflects the intense political rivalry between them ahead of next year’s gubernatorial election in Osun State.
