Nothing Must Happen to Makinde, Call Folarin to Order — Oyo PDP Alerts IGP

The Ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Oyo State has called on the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Alkali Baba Usman, to as a matter of urgency call the Senator representing Oyo Central Senatorial District, Teslim Folarin to order before he turns the state into another field of political crisis.

This was as the ruling party also carpeted the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, over what was described as raising false alarm with its press release two days ago.

It would be recalled that the opposition party had in its press release alleged that the State Governor, ‘Seyi Makinde and the Chairman of the State Park Management System (PMS), Alhaji Mukaila Lamidi were to be held responsible should anything happen to Folarin.

Berating the APC, the Oyo State PDP said the opposition party is now synonymous to Folarin’s hooliganism and rascality.

In a press statement released today by the party’s State Publicity Secretary, Akeem Olatunji, the PDP said it was rather unfortunate that Folarin has continued to bring the office of a Senator of the Federal Republic to serious ridicule by his gutter politics and has continued in his self imposed hallucinations.

The ruling party said: “Folarin is being chased and tormented by his own shadows and that is gradually taking a toll on his mental health.

“Folarin who was allegedly involved and arraigned for being involved in the gruesome murder of late Eleweomo who was until his death the leader of the now proscribed National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), opened his mouth to threaten a sitting governor, ‘Seyi Makinde, during the preparation for local government election saying that he had set three traps that Makinde could not escape from.

“If Folarin and his likes deliberately decide to feign forgetfulness, the people of Oyo State do not. It is on record how members of the APC in the state with the full backing of Folarin and his cohorts attempted to forcefully occupy local government secretariats across the state in a bid to provoke a reaction from the PDP members but failed because sheep can not go into the swamp because of an aggression from a swine of pigs.

“It is also on record how Folarin’s thugs; Hamidu Were, Afeez Ejeoto, Tiri Olowoposi and others laid ambush for Alhaji Mukaila Lamidi sometime not too long ago in Ibadan with the sole motive to assassinate the PMS boss like he allegedly did to Eleweomo but failed.

“We have on good authority how Folarin and his cohorts are recruiting and raring political thugs and hoodlums especially in Ibadan, the state capital all in his desperation to become governor and we’re not oblivious of the fact that he may start springing up surprises in form of attacks on popular individuals not on the same political page with him just as he is notable for and then raise false alarm as a diversionary measure to sway suspicion against him.

“We want to use this medium to call on the Oyo State Commissioner of Police, CP Adebowale Williams, and the IGP, Alhaji Alkali Baba Usman to immediately beam security searchlights on Folarin in order to prevent his desperation from raring its ugly head as it allegedly did with the late Eleweomo.

“It is on record that Honourable Shina Peller, a member of the House of Representatives who has since parted ways with Folarin and his faction of APC recently raised an alarm over a failed assassination attempt on his life by Folarin’s political thugs but for prompt and swift response of the police the case would have been a sad one by now.

“For the sake of emphasis, we want to state unequivocally clear that absolutely nothing untowards must happen to the PDP Governorship candidate, Governor ‘Seyi Makinde, or any of the state government officials under this present government including Alhaji Mukaila Lamidi as our party will not hesitate to deploy every means within the confines of the law to fight Folarin and his APC”, the statement added.
