The All Progressives Congress, APC in Osun State has accused the state governor, Ademola Adeleke of comfortably holding a programme while innocent lives were being cut down in the lingering communal clash between the Ifon and Ilobu communities.
The Osun APC also warned the state governor to desist from embarrassing the people of the state through his actions and inactions.
In a statement by the Osun APC Chairman, Tajudeen Lawal in Osogbo on Friday, the party maintained that the manner the Ipade Imole programme was handled on Thursday was crude.
The party also claimed that the conduct of Governor Adeleke revealed that he is ill-prepared and lacks the natural endowments required to successfully govern the state.
“Governor Ademola Adeleke lacks empathy. I wonder why the governor was seemingly comfortable holding such a programme amidst singing and cracking of jokes while the lives of innocent souls were being cut short in the lingering communal clash between the people of Ifon-Osun and Ilobu about five kilometres away from the venue.
“The time-wasting Ipade Imole which ran for several hours where Adeleke talked much without substance afforded the people of the state a golden opportunity to discover that the governor is not only an expert in dancing but he is an unrivalled political comedian who trivializes serious matters affecting the state for lack of not knowing what to do, how to do it and when to do same.
“I also observed that apart from the fact that Adeleke was superfluous and empty yesterday, the whole exercise turned out to be a tirade whereby the governor was openly demanding to be clapped for by his burdened and embarrassed audience.”
Hitting back, the Osun Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Chairman, Sunday Bisi described the current state of the opposition party as not only painful but shameful.
Bisi also advised the Osun APC Chairman, Tajudeen Lawal to desist from constantly embarrassing the state with his rudderless opinion about governance.
