OSHOGBO DEMONSTRATION: APC AND SPEAKER THANK OSUN PEOPLE FOR REJECTING PDP AGAIN!
“All Progressives Congress has congratulated the people of Osun, especially residents of Osogbo for routing PDP’s attempt at creating mayhem in the state capital today (Tuesday). The PDP had mobilised a dubious coalition of so-called civil society ‘activists’ to demonstrate in support of civil servants’ strike over the salaries’ crisis, which the APC government of President Muhammadu Buhari has now resolved. “But unknown to the PDP, a huge crowd of APC supporters had gathered to celebrate the Federal Government’s intervention to help states that have been unable to pay workers salaries as a result of the massive looting of the nation’s treasury by the ousted Goodluck Jonathan-led PDP government. “Before the PDP-sponsored hoodlums, in the name of civil society ‘activitists’ knew what was happening, an intimidating crowd of jubilant APC supporters emerged from the Alekuwodo axis of the state capital, Osogbo, and advanced to the potential trouble makers that were waiting at Olaiya. A statement by Kunle Oyatomi for APC reads, “the APC hailed the people for this emphatic demonstration of solidarity with the governor and his Party in spite of the vicious campaign of hate and demonization of the Aregbesola government which the PDP has orchestrated in the last couple of weeks. The party also thanked the security forces for standing firm in defence of law and order, which effectively kept in check agents and sponsors of chaos and violence in the state.
Osun Assembly chide ‘desperate politicians’
Meantime, the Speaker of Osun State House of Assembly, Hon. Najeem Salaam has expressed his dismay on “how some disgruntled politicians” were taking advantage of suffering workers to feather their nest, saying that the issue of delayed salaries and other challenges be depoliticized, so that the government would not be pushed to a desperate measure that may hurt the interest of the workers. In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Goke Butika, Salaam lambasted the ‘desperate politicians’ who were masquerading as rights groups, but using blackmail and fake statistics to prosecute their abandoned war before and during the last year governorship election”, saying attacking the person of Gov. Rauf Aregbesola is a misrepresentation of reality of the situation. – See more at: http://www.vanguardngr.com/2015/07/impeachment-pandemonium-as-thugs-attack-pro-anti-aregbesola-protesters/#sthash.Zofrh1i2.dpuf
