The Chairman of the Ogun State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) loyal to former Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, Chief Derin Adebiyi, has taken a swipe at the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, saying he will not leave his office an honorable man.
Adebiyi was speaking in reaction to an alleged forceful invasion of the party’s Secretariat in Ogun State by the caretaker committee set up by Oshiomhole, after dissolving all elected executive following the crises that engulfed the party after the controversial APC primary elections in Ogun.
The caretaker committee and other members of the party loyal to the Governor of the state, Dapo Abiodun on Friday “forcefully” took over the party Secretariat at Iyana Mortuary in Abeokuta, the state capital.
Adebiyi said, ”they thought they have some powers because Oshiomhole is supporting them, but by God’s grace, by God’s grace, if truly I am serving God and Oshiomhole did this to us, Oshiomhole will never leave that place as an honorable person. He will leave in ignominy. Quote me, because some people build this party and he is destroying it.”
Adebiyi also berated a former Governor of the state, Chief Segun Osoba, saying the problem of the APC is lack of responsible leaders.
“The problem we have in this party is that we don’t have responsible leaders. A person like Osoba, for him to engage in all this nonsense, it is worrisome.
They have been using his house as their office, we never complained. We know why we didn’t complain because we know we are the authentic exco; they are just wasting their time. The masses are not on their side.
”It has gotten to a stage when people should play elderly roles. Osoba is now 80, what are they fighting us for?”
