A Political Pressure group within the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, the Pathfinder on Monday kicked against a comment credited to the Minister of Communications, Barrister Adebayo Shittu that APC will lose Oyo state governorship election if he is not given the ticket in 2019.
The group in a statement issued after its monthly meeting held at Green springs hotel in Ibadan signed by its Public Relations Officer, Mr Akeem Agbaje described the statement credited to the Minister “as rather unfortunate and quite unbecoming of a committed party man “
In the statement, the group while asking the Minister to honourably resign” stressed that the statement was an indication that the ” Minister is not fit to occupy the seat of a serving Minister in an APC led Government .
“It is rather Barbaric and Uncouth for a Man presently serving as a Minister on the platform of our great party APC, enjoying the Benefit of the Party and still throw stones at the glass house. Mr Adebayo Shittu should stop playing God. He should be made to face the music”, the group said..
The Pathfinder added , “we hereby call on him to honourably tender his resignation letter with immediate effect since he has publicly declared war against the party that made him. His statement has tagged him a Mole and he is no longer to be trusted.”
The Presidency and the President himself is hereby put on red alert to watchout for the Mole within and ensure he is sacked in the best interest of the Party. We hereby call on the Presidency to without delay relieve Mr. Adebayo Shittu of his position as Minister representing Oyo state on the Federal Cabinet.
We have an array of Very fine Gentlemen, Technocrats and very refined and Committed Party Men who can represent us so well both as a Minister in the federal cabinet and as Governorship aspirant in Oyo state who will not allow their Personal ambition over ride the overall interest of the Party, State and that of President Muhammadu Buhari who does not need a distraction like Mr. Shittu.
“We know Mr Adebayo Shittu is one leg in One leg out of the APC, his affiliation with an eaglet political party Action Democratic Party is already public knowledge which is the major reason why he wants to discredit the credibility of our great party All Progressives congress amongst the electorates to pave way for his blind ambition but we are determined to nip his dubious actions in the bud.”
