Osun Election: Oyinlola’s defection will not affect us – PDP

Olagunsoye Oyinlola

Mr. Oyinlola had said he decided to move with the tide and
defect to the APC.

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said Tuesday’s defection of a former Osun governor, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, to All Peoples Congress, APC, would not affect the outcome of Saturday’s governorship election in the state.

The Chairman of the party in the state, Gani Olaoluwa, stated this in a statement on Tuesday in Osogbo.

Describing the defection as “inglorious”, Mr. Olaoluwa said that there was the need to pray for Mr. Oyinlola as he “begins a political journey with professional liars.”

“We respect the decision of Oyinlola, but we are also expecting him to be man enough to send a congratulatory message to us after the August 9 election.

“For the PDP in Osun, we are resolute and stand as a family to rescue our people from political vultures and voodoo personalities,” he said.

Mr. Oyinlola had, at a rally of the APC held in Osogbo on Tuesday ahead of Saturday’s election, formally pitched tent with the party.

At the occasion, Mr. Oyinlola said, “I decided to take my destiny in my hands as I am no longer wanted in the PDP.

“I have discovered that all the former governors in Osun are now in the APC and I decided to move with the tide.”

In 2002, she declared her Interest to vie the 2003 Lagos State Governor seat against her boss. Bola Tinubu was infuriated, he lobbied the Lagos State House to commence impeachment proceedings against her. Buknor resigned her position as Deputy Governor, she also left the party, Alliance for Democracy. That was the last we heard of her politically.2. Mr. FEMI PEDRO was picked by Bola Tinubu in 2002 as Buknor’s successor. Jointly, they won 2003 Lagos Governorship election. After the FORMATION of Action Congress by majorly sponsored by Atiku Abubakar and Tinubu, Pedro Signified interest to succeed his boss like others in the 2007 Guber election.

However, Governor Tinubu refused to collect his Resignation Letter…Few Minutes later, the House IMPEACHED him for “Insubordination and Gross Misconduct”. Bola Tinubu OPENED the floodgate for Political Witch-hunt. He was the FIRST Governor Since Lagos History to Have 3 Deputies within a Span of 8 Years. Why is APC now complaining- and abusing the president–when they started it it all
