The Unity Forum on Tuesday faulted the claims by Governor Abiola Ajimobi that some of the aggrieved members of the Forum that left the ruling All Progressives Congress ( APC ) in Oyo state are already returning into the party.
Unity Forum in a statement issued by its Secretary, Dr Wasiu Olatubosun made available to newsmen in Ibadan, challenged Governor Ajimobi to publish names of those Unity Forum members that he claimed has returned to the APC.
According to the Forum, there was no basis for Governor Ajimobi to be misleading the people of the state by claiming that majority of it’s members have returned to the party fold after the crises , as mischievous and unbecoming of Governor Ajimobi status.
Describing the action of the governor as mere grandstanding, the Forum insisted that Governor Ajimobi was not sincere with his self acclaimed reconciliatory moves, saying, it was ” a fluke and an attempt to hoodwink the public that all is well within the party, or how best could one describe Governor Ajimobi action now who had earlier described the Unity forum as inconsequential.”
“Unity forum strongly remains steadfast with over 100,000 members across the state and committed to the political realignment in the state with the view of wrestling power from APC led autocratic government in the state where the general public have been subjected to untold hardship with anti people policies.”it said
While sympathizing with the people of the state most especially, lecturers and students in all the six state owned institutions for their unpaid 25 months salaries as well as students of Ladoke Akintola University Ogbomosho (LAOTECH)whose school fees was increased from 80,000 Naira to 300, 000 naira with the view of preventing children from poor homes to achieve their goal in life Unity Forum advised the people of Oyo state not to be carried away with the antics of allegedly deceiving them so as to have sympathy for the party with the view of achieving his goal to impose a successor on the people of the state In 2019.
The Forum then called on the Oyo State people to reject APC and all its agents of deceit .
