The Atiku Victory Vanguard (AVV), on Tuesday, cautioned some faceless groups in the state against unnecessary media attacks on a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Elder, Wole Oyelese under the guise of defending Gov Seyi Makinde.
AVV in a statement made available to journalists in Ibadan, lamented that a faceless group ‘National Equity Group’ instead of addressing the issue concerning the position of Gov Makinde on Alhaji Atiku Abubakar Presidency engaged in using uncouth language against the person of Elder Oyelese.
According to Atiku Victory Vanguard, “Ordinarily, we would have ignored them as they deserved, but, we saw the need to correct the lies which they have deliberately sold to the reading public in order to set the record straight.
“This faceless group tried to smear our leader’s name with matter of money. We challenge anyone who has hard evidence that Elder Oyelese ever solicited for fund or has ever compromised on financial matters to come out and say so. We believe that for a Nigerian who held public office at the federal level for over five years to leave office with his reputation untarnished is a thing to be applauded”, it said
AVV added, ” This feat we believe speaks volumes as to the intergrity of this man of God. It is therefore a thing of shame that some faceless individuals who cannot appreciate and do not have values would be falsely accusing this role model. We believe you people need to have a few lessons in decent behaviour”.
” Now leaving the deliberate distraction aside, our original question still comes as to the position of Governor Seyi Makinde to Alhjaji Atiku’s presidential ambition.We sincerely believe that when our Principal said that many people who do not mean well for Governor Makinde currently surround him, Elder Oyelese knew what he was saying.People who make up this fake and faceless group surely know how to make enemies for the governor.”
The group stressed, ” it is intriguing that this devilish individuals would be dragging the name of our respected baba, Chief Lamidi Ariyibi Adedibu of blessed memory into a matter that does not involve him even by the longest stretch of the imagination. For whatever it is worth, let us state that there was never a time that Baba and our leader had any disagreement that may warrant ‘dealing’ with each other.
” Many well meaning individuals and baba’s family members can testify to this. They had the best of relationships of father and son. May baba’s wonderful soul continue to rest in peace. When human beings can no longer be rational in their behaviour and reasoning due to self-induced frustration, they naturally resort to bestial behaviours. This could best describe what has been exhibited by a faceless group that goes by the name National Equity Group’ in their inglorious attack on the respected leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo state, Elder Wole Oyelese, a former Minister of Power and Steel”.
