Folarin Is Capable Of Causing Political Crisis – Oyo PDP, Urges IGP To Call Him To Order
The Ruling People’s Democratic Party, PDP, has called on the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Alkali Baba Usman, to as a matter of urgency call the Senator representing Oyo North 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 e alarm with its press release two days ago, Oyo state PDP said the opposition party is now synonymous with Fwitharin’s hooliganism and rascality.
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.
The ruling party in a press statement by its State Publicity Secretary, Akeem Olatunji today, said it was rather unfortunate that Folarin, who has continued to bring the office of a senator of the federal republic to serious ridicule by his gutter politics and has continued unrsunrestrainedhis self-imposed hallucinations. The ruling party said, “Folarin is being chased and tormented by his own 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 do not go into the swamp because of a session 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 esp, 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 bim security searchlights on Folarin in preventing his desperation from raring its ugly head as it allegedly did with the late Eleweomo.
“It is on record that Honourable Shina Pella, 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, the case would have been a sad one by now.
“For the sake of emphasis, we want to state unequivocally clear that absolutely nothing into untoward 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.
“It is even more worrisome that Folarin’s desperation has blindfolded him so much that he is yet to mention to the good people of Oyo state what he and his party have to offer the state after leaving the people with sheer terror, unpaid salaries, pension and gratuities for many months leading to untimely deaths and paralysis of many, humongous debt burden, and other unforgettable atrocities under APC between 2011 and 2019.
“Folarin is not the only individual to contest the next Governorship election but his unrrunrestrainedperation has made him a serious element of security threat to not just the good people of Oyo state but other participating contestants at the coming election therefore, the Oyo Commissioner of Police and IGP are enjoined to give this call all the needed attention it deserves before the Senator retureturnsto the Eleweomo era.
“The Oyo state PDP has continued to tolerate the excesses, rascality, and recklessness and political brigandage of Folarin and his faction of Oyo APC because we believe two wrongs can not make market but this level of civil disposition to politics should not be mistaken for weakness.
“We understand that Folarin’s poor public image has compelled him and his APC to resort to smear camp campaigns all forms of vituperations against Makinde and PDP even at the slightest bite from a mosquito but we urge them to be decorous and not throw caution into the wind in trying to seek for public attention using Makinde’s soaring public image as their ladder to climb to the top because the people of Oyo state are now wiser and now know better between false propaganda and a genuine leader.” The party stated.
