A faction of the All Progressives Congress in Osun State loyal to former Governor Rauf Aregbesola has knocked Governor Adegboyega Oyetola over the claim of plot against his administration by some people in the state.
According to the faction loyal to the current Minister of Interior, Oyetola’s administration should substantiate its claim of plot by some people engaging in a smear campaign against the government.
The group said this in a statement on Monday by its Publicity Secretary, Biodun Agboola.
He said that the smear campaign allegation by the Oyetola’s government was unfounded, adding that the administration is being haunted by its shadow.
Recall that the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Ismail Omipidan, recently claimed that some people were out to smear Oyetola’s reputation and achievements recorded by his administration.
But the Aregbesola’s faction replying in its statement said, “The case of The Osun Masterminds group is just the latest of such groups, faceless individuals and members of the cabinet that have been assigned to attack and blackmail the former governor, Rauf Aregbesola.
“Virtually, every programme that earned our party accolades and made it an unbeatable one has been denigrated and diminished by the governor.
“He has watched with pleasure how known members of his cabinet have used the social and mainstream media to cause disaffection among party members.
“How then can such a governor come out now to allege any plot against his administration?”
