The Osun State chapter of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), has described as “mere political jamboree and act of sychophancy”, the statement by some members of the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT), UNIOSUN Teaching Hospital Staff and Ife NULGE Mandate Group in the state, endorsing Governor Gboyega Oyetola for a second term.
The party in a statement signed by its chairman who also doubles as IPAC secretary, Dr Tosin Odeyemi, admonished Governor Oyetola to be wary of those endorsing him for a second term when he is barely three years in office, asserting that those people will still endorse another candidate who give them more money as we approach 2021.
According to the statement, “it is nauseating to read people saying there is no vacancy in Bola Ige House because they want to make Oyetola happy. We are calling on these groups to allow the good people of Osun State pick their governor come 2021 and not leaders who have already compromised and trying to justify their pay.
“We have said it on several occasions that people should stop distracting Oyetola with a second term agenda when he is yet to commence job and also considering the pace of underdevelopment in different sectors of Osun do State from infrastructure to education, industrialisation, civil service and judicial reforms, enterprise development, security, prompt payment to pensioners and promotion of civil servants, among others.
The NNPP is convinced beyond doubt that the only way the state can develop is to give a chance to another candidate after the expiration of his first four-year tenure.
“We therefore with full sense of responsibility, call on him to shelve the idea of running for second term. Besides, APC is known for political jamboree, using money to induce voters and that is why we, in the NNPP, see those hungry and attention-seeking groups like UNIOSUN Teaching Hospital Staff, Ife NULGE Mandate Group and the Nigerian Union of Teachers as sycophants and civil jokers.
Our position remains that Oyetola must merit a second term and it will not come through these sychophants who are professionals in creating crisis and organizing charades so they can feast on the governor” it stated.
