Osun APC Factional Leader Adeoti Explains Visit To Adeleke



Alhaji Wahab Adeniji, Principal Aide, to a leader of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, has explained the story behind the picture of a former Secretary to the State Government with Governor Ademola Adeleke and his Chief of Staff, Alhaji Kazeem Akinleye.

It would be recalled that another faction of APC loyal to the immediate past Governor Gboyega Oyetola had accused the faction loyal to the Minister of interior and former governor of the state, Ogbeni Raufu Aregbesola of causing the party’s woeful and debilitating loss of July 16 Governorship Election in the State to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Adeleke’s party.

Adeniji urged members of the public to disregard the alleged murmuring and negative meanings being made by a caucus of the APC which is allegedly known for negative vibes and social media ranting on Adeoti’s visitation to Adeleke at the Bola Ige House, Abere, on Wednesday, May 17, where the picture was taken.

He said that the visit was innocuous because Adeoti was on a private visit to Akinleye, the Chief of Staff to the Governor, explaining that the duo had maintained a personal relationship despite political differences.

According to him: “But circumstances made meeting with the Governor inevitable and courtesies were extended which necessitated picture opportunities that sent the neophytes in the said APC caucus on edge.”

He lampooned those allegedly reading negative meanings to Adeoti’s visitation, saying there is more to social life and personal relationships than politics.

Adeniji said: “As it has been the case with their usual selfishness, members of the caucus began unreasonable extrapolation to put the integrity of the former Iwo Local Government Chairman, leader of all progressive political parties in existence in Osun between December 2003 till January 2011 when he was appointed the Secretary to the State Government (SSG) at stake.

“They attributed senseless meanings, suitable only to their warped rationalization of the visit, assuming it was a political visit.

“Such myopic thinking which they verbalize makes one wonder if they know about ethics and etiquette of societal relationships and most importantly that of government.

“May the political uninitiated be told that courtesy demanded that Adeoti was expected to pay an unscheduled visit to the Governor when he was informed that the Governor had arrived at the office.
