*want fleeing others arrested
By; BAYO AKAMO, Ibadan
Oyo State All Progressives Congress (APC) Professionals (APC-P) on Sunday demanded the prosecution of all the suspected political thugs from Oyo State arrested during the Ondo State governorship election.
APC P in a statement made available to journalists in Ibadan also accused Governor Seyi Makinde of invading Ondo State with thugs during the Saturday’s governorship election.
According to the APC Professionals in the statement by its Chief Convener, Alhaji Adekunle Lawal, Governor Makinde’s right-hand-man, identified as Babatunde Tijani (Double T) was arrested by the Police for electoral malpractices yesterday, while others escaped arrest.
The APC Professionals stressed that the suspect, Babatunde Tijani was arrested in Owo, Ondo state around 9:00am yesterday, (Sunday)
“It is shameful that our governor in Oyo State became so arrogant, boasting that he will single-handedly deliver Ondo State to the PDP just because of his reliance on those thugs he has been using to terrorise the people here in Oyo State.”
The APC professionals described the arrest of Tijani as a vindication of those who accused Governor Makinde of masterminding the assault on the former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, at the PDP rally in Ondo last Wednesday.
Reminding the governor that he was told last month when he was grandstanding that just the way he went to Kogi State to lavish Billions of Naira belonging to the people of Oyo State and came back empty handed, he will also fail in Ondo State and he has indeed failed, APC P asked Governor Makinde “to face governance and stop wasting the state meagre resources on his political territory expansionist agenda, on which he has allegedly plunged the state into huge debt.”
“Now that he has failed in two PDP national assignments, we hope that the party must have realised that their ‘star-boy baby governor’ is just a noise maker, who does not have any political capacity”.ENDS
