Following a recent statement credited to Former Commissioner for Health in Oyo state, Dr. Azeez Adeduntan calling the Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the March 9 election, Oloye Adebayo Adelabu, a wrong Candidate, a group loyal to Adelabu has fired back at Adeduntan.
In a statement issued by Comrade Femi Awogboro on behalf of Adelabu Solidarity Group, described the statement credited to Dr. Adeduntan as senseless and not expected from any reasonable person who had benefited from the party when APC was in control of the state.
According to Comrade Awogboro, his principal, Oloye Adelabu will not like to join issues with a political jobber like the former Commissioner for Health in Oyo state saying it is pertinent for Adelabu Solidarity Group to respond to some of the remarks attributed to Dr. Adeduntan.
“If not for people like Dr Azeez Adeduntan who worked against the APC at the 2019 poll ,despite the hands of love extended to him and Some betrayers by Bayo Adelabu ,the party won’t have temporarily lost the seat of power in Oyo state.
“The Former Commissioner was quoted as saying, he facilitated One billion Naira for Adeoyo Ring Road Hospital out of 50 billion which was expected and the self styled “World class Surgeon” bragged with impunity
“Oloye Adelabu who is a silent Philanthropist that has contributed a lot to the pace setter state .The Technical University Ibadan, Oyo state ,Security Trust Fund, numerous scholarship awards among countless among others are what chief Adelabu has been shouldering without making needless noise”, Awogboro stated.
Comrade Awogboro who is the Publicity Secretary of APC in Ibadan South East,urged Dr Adeduntan to be mindful of his utterances in the public ,especially on issues relating to the party and should apologise immediately for his misguided and malicious invectives against the respected chief .
“What ought to be Paramount in the mind of any committed member now is to work harmoniously through prayers and commitment to the party towards ensuring the victory of APC at the Appeal court, not making unnecessary and baseless remarks about the party and its leadership”.
Comrade Awogboro asked Dr Azeez Adeduntan to learn about APC’s ideology and stop tarnishing the image of the party and its real stalwarts, saying “his type of attitude and arrogance displayed by Dr Adeduntan necessitated the then Labour Party to substitute his name prior to the 2011 Governorship elections”.
