Senator Ademola Adeleke, the incoming Governor of Osun State, has asked outgoing Governor Adegboyega Oyetola to cease having hallucinations about regaining his office.
After Senator Adeleke was proclaimed the victor of the July 16 governorship election, Governor Oyetola stated on various occasions that he had lost the vote count, not the election, and that he would soon regain his mandate.
The governor, according to a statement by Adeleke’s spokeswoman, Olawale Rasheed on Sunday, has no mandate to recover after being comprehensively beaten in the election on July 16.
Adeleke pointed out that Oyetola’s many lies on the governorship tribunal have been exposed and that his appeal has been deflated as unjustified and baseless while drawing attention to the rampant looting of Osun State assets after the July election.
The statement read in part, “The antics of a false democrat whose role model are little tyrants and trumpists of this world.
“From media trial to outright sponsorship of falsehood against proceedings at the Tribunal, Mr Oyetola and the All Progressive Congress (APC) have practically abandoned diligent prosecution of their petition, while chasing shadows with unrelated and unpleasant applications and submissions.
“Oyetola has been exhibiting the highest level of leadership hypocrisy in recent Nigerian history as he supervises last minute ruining of the state, while parroting his false hope of reclaiming a non-existing mandate.
“You know you are going. You are emptying the treasury and laying bobby traps for Osun people.
“Yet, you mount rooftop every now and then to deceive your gullible associates and accomplices in political banditry.
“Our message to you and your team is simple. This is your last week in Government House.
“Pack all what you want. But be rest assured that every official, elected or appointed, who partakes in the diversion of our common patrimony, will have their day before people’s panels of inquiry.”
