Mr Bolaji Gbadamosi, a Chieftain in the People’s Democratic Party, Ibadan South-West Local Government has applauded the decision of the Appeal Court on the case between the Oyo State Government and the sacked ALGON members.
While speaking to newsmen, Gbadamosi asserted that the verdict exonerated the State Governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde, whose governance is one guided by the tenets of the rule of law.
Gbadamosi also applauded the Governor for the reconciliation committee headed by Dr Saka Balogun, which had been working hard to resolve all grievances within the PDP.
Gbadamosi stated that the case was founded by dismissed APC loyalists to hinder the Makinde forward-looking administration. He pleaded with stakeholders to support the Makinde government to ensure continued growth in the state.
He reprimanded the sacked chairmen and the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state to stop wasting their time pursuing what is not lost, noting that their speculative and baseless suit, which failed at the Appeal Court, will suffer the same fate at the apex court.
“One received with excitement the judgment of the Appeal Court on the speculative suit initiated by the sacked APC local government chairmen.
“That judgment, to say the least, vindicated Governor Seyi Makinde’s administration as one that is only guided by the rule of law.
“It is my considered view that with this landmark judgment, the wind has been taken off the sail of the Oyo State APC and the sacked chairmen and this should encourage residents of the state to rally round the government and expect more dividends of democracy in the coming months.
“I also want to use the occasion to commend the governor for putting in place a reconciliation committee with sound and experienced party leaders such as Dr Saka Balogun, Oloye Jumoke Akinjide, Mrs Mutiat Ladoja, the PDP State Chairman, Chief Kunmi Mustapha, among others.
“I am confident that with the quality works being done by this committee, the party is truly on its way to greatness and it will become stronger to rule the state for many years to come.”
