Osun PDP Says Oyetola, Owoeye Are Hallucinators

Former Governor Adegboyega Oyetola and House of Assembly Speaker, Timothy Owoeye have been described as hallucinators.

This is as the duo has come under attacks for their consistent anti-democratic posture, unrepentant hatred for ballot boxes and anti-people agenda over the election of Governor Ademola Adeleke.

The Osun Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) made this known in a statement signed by its caretaker chairman, Akindele Adekunle and Sunday Bisi, Director General, Atiku Okowa Presidential Campaign Council in Osun on Thursday in Osogbo.

In their reaction, they accused the House Speaker of betraying his oath office, undermining sanctity of state authority and colluding to destabilize a state where he is heading an arm of government.

"We at first decried the failure of the Speaker to respect the office he is occupying to rise above petty partisan politics and to tell the truth to Mr Oyetola who of recent has been listening to devil's whispering.

"We condemn in no small measure the lack of courage and demise of statesmanship demonstrated by the House Speaker who today openly revolted against the will of Osun People and who has unashamedly embraced ignoble falsehood and propaganda of a defeated Oyetola.

"We had thought the House Speaker has risen to act like a statesman.

"Unfortunately, Mr Owoeye today failed the test as rather than faced the election denier, the small Trump of Osun, he weakly adopted the path of little tyrants who detest the people and all what democracy represents.

"We are at the same time alarmed that a sitting House Speaker has openly exposed a sinister agenda to undermine the integrity of the judiciary by making proclamations on a matter that is subjudice.

"We want to put it on record that it is against protocol, against democratic sense of judgement and against all civilized norms to pre-empt judicial outcomes.

"The House Speaker should apologize to the judiciary, retract his reprehensible statement and summon courage to exit puppet garb of supposed leader who is worshipping at the feet of a man incapable of listening to the voice of God. 

"As a political party, we are convinced and rightly so that the Speaker's fanciful wish is a grand hallucination.

"Governor Ademola Adeleke is a duly elected Governor of Osun State who was robbed in 2018 but whose victory was widely confirmed and validated in 2022 by God, the people and even the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, the leader of the Speaker's party. 

"In case the House Speaker is also listening to Devil's whispering, we affirm that the voice of the people is the voice of God.

"If Hon Owoeye is however serious about his unpopular outburst,  let him know that nobody rises against the people and win.

"The people rule and they are solidly with Governor Ademola Adeleke", the statement noted.

The statement called on the electorates to vite for the PDP candidates at state and national levels during the general elections.

The former governor of the state, Adegboyega Oyetola during the launch of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council in Osogbo promised to deliver 1.5 million votes for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Also, the Speaker of the Osun State House of Assembly, Timothy Owoeye declared that Oyetola would return as governor of the state.
