Prominent party leader of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Oyo state, Chief Bosede Adedibu has asserted that the existence of the All Progressive Party (APC) in Oyo state is rather insignificant, noting that if they were up and doing in the state, they would have not been disgracefully voted out in the last gubernatorial elections.
The wife of the late Ibadan political guru, Alhaji Lamidi Adedibu, opinionated that the Seyi Makinde led administration is on path to developing the state with a view of improving the quality of life of Oyo residents. On the other hand, she hinted that APC are staunch stumbling blocks to the actualisation of this dream.
Mrs Adedibu said: “Today they talk about insecurity but no government has spent so much on security like this government. They are only shouting but we cannot see them. They don’t exist. They will only do in vain because this government is focused.”
“If they talk about insecurity in Oyo, what is happening up there? Is it the PDP that is ruling at the top?”
“Under the Ajimobi administration that they talked about, so many things happened that were covered up. See, I don’t want to talk about the dead but we all know what happened. During the last administration, an honourable member of the House of Assembly was killed, what happened? Also, Honourable Sugar was killed then, what has happened?”
”Oyo is the only State being controlled by the PDP and they are disturbed by this so, they want to bring this government down but they will not succeed.”
Mrs. Adedibu showered high praises on Seyi Makinde on infrastructure, she said: “they are calling my Governor an audio Governor but let me tell you, they will be shocked soon. Second year anniversary will soon be celebrated and they will be shocked because, many projects will be inaugurated and they will stop calling Makinde “Audio Governor.”
On the allegation that Makinde spends state money to equip individuals by purchasing luxurious cars for them, she stalked the allegations as been a rumour and fake news.
“Makinde bought cars for some people of which I am one of them. But they don’t know what they are saying. Was Seyi Makinde not made before he became the Governor? Has he not being doing that before he became the Governor? Let me tell you this – Makinde bankrolled his campaign by himself. Did you hear anybody gave him money for the election? Please let his critics say something else”, she said.
Regarding the state of education in Oyo, Mrs Adedibu gave Makinde government a pass mark and challenged school heads to account for grants the government has given them as Makinde called for before requesting for a new one.
She disproved the claim of the opposition which says that the government faked the report of the promotion of Oyo State from 26th to 12th position on WAEC rankings. In her words: “what do you expect from them? They can never see anything good in Seyi’s government”.
