All Progressives Congress (APC), in Oyo State, has accused the governor of the state, Engr. Seyi Makinde, of funding miscreants who are responsible for insecurity in the state.
The party added that the state only witnessed peace when the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP, SouthWest) held its congress in Osogbo, Osun State when the governor’s goons were moved to the event.
The party, in a statement titled: “Governor Seyi Makinde Is The Security Risk In Oyo State” issued by its Spokesman, Abdulazzez Olatunde, described Makinde’s apology in Igangan as deceitful.
Oyo APC said: “What else will confirm to the good people of Oyo State that the Governor of Oyo State, Engr Seyi Makinde is actually the one funding the Miscreants that are responsible for the insecurity in Oyo State than the JUNE 12 rally in which the Governor with his convoy of vehicles were seen clearly amongst them.
“It was not a coincidence that the most remarkable victims of last year (2020) Endsars where the bodies of Policemen that were cannibalised were recorded in Ibadan, Oyo State under the Government of Engr Seyi Makinde.
“It was on record that the only day thus far since assumption of office on 29th May 2019, that Oyo State and infact Ibadanland had relative peace was the day PDP Southwest Congress was held in Osogbo, Osun State when the goons of Gov Seyi Makinde were “moved enmass” to Osogbo.
“Oyo State Governors apology in Igangan after the mayhem of Saturday/Sunday, 5th/6th June 2021 was the just a Smokescreen and deceitful Character of Gov Seyi Makinde to pool wool over the faces of innocent people of Oyo State”.
The party added: “Finally, it is not a coincidence that the Oodua separatist group and the so called Afenifere that are heating the polity that is threatening the unity of Nigeria enjoy good Patronage of Engr Seyi Makinde of Oyo state which informed most meetings holding in Ibadan.
“Several times we had advised Gov Seyi Makinde to stop politicising security issues in Oyo State but with the darring and damning senseless June 12th 2021 Parade of today, when the whole Nigeria is thinking of how to bring an end to the insecurity in Nigeria and particularly Oyo State, it has become very very clear that Oyo State People needed to be delivered from the grip of this feeding bottle government.”
