Osun COVID-19 Palliative Scandal: PDP asks Oyetola to resign, apologize to masses


The Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State has told governor Gboyega Oyetola to tender an unreserved apology to the people of the state and resign honorably from office. The party said the APC government has exhausted its worst in the state.

Reacting to hoarding of several tones of food items meant for COVID-19 palliatives in the state, the state Deputy Publicity Secretary, Àlhaji Yakub Yekini said the party wondered why APC is populated with “chronic haters of humanity.”

“The latest discovery by the people who were starved of these food items while living at the mercy of agonising executive orders of the state governor restraining citizens to their various homes for several months, according to PDP, was the height of slap on the face of the populace by anyone with democratic seal of government.

Yekini advised APC to “splash biles of their habitual greed tendencies with mercy as this latest episode of their heresy in the state is tantamount to unpardonable crime against humanity, everyday of the week.

“While applauding the state teeming army of youths and the good people of the state who thronged the cocoa industry in Ede where the food items were warehoused purposely as electoral inducements towards the 2022 guber contest in the state, the PDP praised the renewed doggedness of the people against stark oppression in the state. the party however admonished them to eschew violence in wedging exit doors for the satanic agents of perdition in power.

The PDP spokesman also commended officers of the Nigerian army who were hurriedly contracted as guards for the food stuffs, for their professionalism in handling issues at the hoarding site and for especially refusing to Obey the shoot at sight order handed them by the APC government of governor Gboyega Oyetola.

“It is a shame that the APC after inflicting such devastating ruins on the state economy and at such difficult period of a rampaging global pandemic, would still bear thoughts of taking food off the table of badly hemorrhaging families.

“I call on the fantastic and energetic army youths in our dear state not to give in to surreptitious intimidation by the oppressive APC administration in the state, but instead dust their individual voters cards as irrepressible artillery against the exposed tricksters in the state, describing it as the most potent panacea to bring a definite end to their horror laden government in the state and the country at large”, Àlhaji Yekini said.
