Osun ALGON Cautions Soyinka Over Comments Against Omisore, APC



—Says Rule Of Law Makes A Good Nation

The leadership of Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON), Osun State Chapter, has berated the comment credited to the Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka against the newly elected National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Iyiola Omisore, saying the comment is unnecessary having resolved the matter legally in his favour.

Osun ALGON said respect for the rule of law must be the guiding principle of every citizen regardless of status or position hence the need for Soyinka to avoid utterances against any individual particularly on a matter that had been judicially adjudicated.

They however congratulated Omisore on his emergence of APC National Scribe, saying they were very satisfied on the decision of the party to elect him as its secretary.

The Osun ALGON, in a statement signed by its Chairman, Hon. Samuel Idowu Abiodun, on Saturday in Osogbo, said for a nation to grow effectively, the rule of law is sacrosanct.

He expressed displeasure on the insinuation as regards litigation against Omisore on matter that had already been put to rest by the competence Court of Law which had already vindicated the Osun former Deputy Governor.

“We want to commend the APC National Secretary for his steadfastness, forthrightness and commitment to the growth and development of the progressive party which he was a bonafide member right from the outset.

“We equally laud his invaluable contributions to Nigeria’s development inspite the challenging task of nation-building. No doubt, Senator Omisore is a patriot, a nationalist, democrat and indeed, a fighter for good causes”, he added.

ALGON also praised President Muhammadu Buhari and the esteemed members of the ruling party for electing Omisore as the party’s National Secretary.

It emphasized Omisore’s rich and inspiring profile, meritorious services to the nation and humanity as well as his peaceful disposition.

ALGON implored Yoruba across the globe not to allow themselves to be used against one another under any guise as previously witnessed in the past.

“Yorubas really need to be careful, especially our youths, they should eschew the politics of bitterness and campaign of acrimony”, the statement reads.
