Only sycophants will applaud incompetent Oshiomhole – Governor Akeredolu
Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has described those applauding the actions of the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole during the just concluded APC Primaries as sycophants.
In a statement by his Senior Special Adviser on Special Duties and Strategy, Doyin Odebowale, the governor noted that he was not in support of Oshiomhole aspiration as the National Chairman of APC because of his egregious and inherently destructive narcissism.
The governor revealed that president Muhammadu Buhari was worried about the turn of event in the party and warned that the actions of Oshiomhole may hurt the fortune of the APC in the upcoming election.
The Statement reads:
“The governor had expressed preference for someone else during the contest for the office of the Chairman of the party.
“He did not hide his opposition to Mr. Oshiomole’s aspiration for the simple reason that the leadership of a party, especially the one just emerging from a merger, should distance itself from egregious and inherently destructive narcissism.
“Recent events seem to justify this position as prescient. Only sycophants will fail to see the obvious. Mr. President would not have expressed worries over the crises in the Party if everything had gone on smoothly.
“The handlers of the mob strive in vain to set the President against certain government functionaries considered antagonistic to their pernicious scheme for dominance.
“Their devious plot to outsmart those perceived as opposing their expansionist tendency compelled them to take desperate measures. Anyone endowed with an attitude of sobriety should have seen the need for calm.
“Rather than retrace their steps and display genuine contrition, their desperation pushes them to embrace measures capable of not only hurting the Party, but, regrettably, the President, whom they pretend to love so much.
“Those who collected varying and humongous amounts as fees from aspirants during the last grandiose charade called primaries and submitted names dictated to them by a cabal, notorious for capturing political power for unbridled pillage, should be bold to explain their real motives to the people. They should be honest enough to deal with the issues,”
