By; BAYO AKAMO, Ibadan
A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Atiba Local Government Area of Oyo State,

Hon Babatunde Esuola on Thursday lauded Gov Seyi Makinde for the withdrawal of  the list on the sharing of Supervisory councillors and Special Advisers slots across the 33 local government areas in the state.
Hon Esuola who gave the commendation in an open letter to Gov Makinde praised the governor for the bold step adding that a ” recent list circulating round was totally  against the PDP 70% and Coalition 30% sharing template.
Describing the purported lists as ” a fraud”, the PDP Chieftain urged the governor ” to consult with all the local stakeholders for a new list.”
In the letter titled “Open letter to His Excellency on the imbalance in the sharing of Atiba LG and Soro LCDA PDP Supervisory Councillors and Special Advisers slots,: my protest”, Hon Esuola frowned at the sharing formula of Supervisory councillors and Special Advisers slots in his  Atiba local government and Soro LCDA.
” Your novel idea of the sharing formula and template of the above subject matter is highly commendable, that is a demonstration of honesty and sincerity to fulfill agreements. It isn’t pretence but that is who you are, only God has the adequate reward for you and Almighty will certainly bless you more sir.”, he said
Hon Esuola added, ” the sharing formula of 70% (PDP) and 30% (Coalition) is a welcome gesture, however I wish to complain on the recent list circulating round, which totally go against your PDP 70% and Coalition 30% sharing template in Atiba LG and Soro LCDA”.
” We were told that you have approved the list and you have instructed that, they should be sworn for and assume office yesterday Monday. But to God be the glory the lies crashed by your directive to withdraw the list across the 33LGs”.
Hon Esuola stressed ” Your Excellency Sir, the list is devil incarnate; I was earlier constrained to complain because it was difficult for me to find out if truly you approved such a list. But as it is clear that the list emanated from a tyrannical cabal working days and night to discredit your good work and intention for the good people of Oyo State and those party members that worked for you”.
” Sir I can now complain and protest against the list. May I crave your indulgence to forgive me about this mode of communication with you, Sir,  it is as a result of urgency it required, and moreover, I want people to contradict my claims.”
” The Atiba/Soro list like other local governments was a total fraud. Sir you will be surprised to know that out of 10 Supervisory councilors and 2 Secretaries total 12, Atiba PDP got just 5 slots and the rest 7 goes to Coalition group but using PDP disguised. 
“Also on the special adviser list, only 2 out of 10 was given to PDP the remaining 8 goes to the Coalition in disguised of PDP. This list was completely in a gross violation of your 70% and 30% sharing directives and it’s not acceptable to PDP members in Atiba/Soro local government.  
Therefore, I wish to suggest for your consideration and approval of the following sharing formula for Atiba LG and Soro LCDA. 70% of 12 supers and secretary is 8 slots for PDP and 4 slots for Coalition and 70% of 10 Special assistant is 7 slots for PDP and 3 slots for Coalition.
