Oyo APPPS berates Oyo IPAC over fake press release
Reaffirms their separation from IPAC
The Oyo State Chapter of the Association of Progressive Political Parties (APPPS) has passed vote of no confidence on the Waheed Oyewole led IPAC in Oyo State.
This was contained in a communiqué signed and issued to our reporter by APPPS Oyo State Chairman, Secretary and Public Relations Officer, Mr. David Akinola, State Chairman of PDC, Mr. Olaitan Oladunni, State Chairman of BNPP and Tolulope Adedoyin, State Chairman of APA at the end of the state APPPS EXCO meeting held yesterday at the APA State Secretariat, Onireke, Ibadan, Oyo State.
Our attention is drawn to the unwarranted attack launched against us by Oyo IPAC leadership that our recently released statement about quitting the body was fake and that we are not authentic members of IPAC in the state from the inception of IPAC.
Leading the assault, Oyewole said “We believe that such news are carried by jobless, clueless and demented beggars who are possibly seeking cheap popularity where there are none!”
He further said “We also collectively denounce the so mentioned parties and their miscreants whose names were mentioned, as parties and people that never existed among us and could never claim to have pulled out of IPAC, Oyo State, How can any party claim to have pulled out of IPAC when they were never members of IPAC at any time?”
According to Oyo State APPPS “We at the Oyo APPPS consider these statements (though poorly written) as lunatic statement rendered by one retarded Waheed Oyewole to be an unnecessary display of his mental disability and arrogance, which is most unfortunate.”
In a further interview with our reporter, the State P.R.O of APPPS, Tolulope Adedoyin said, “APA, PDC and BNPP are all registered political parties in the country and we are recognized by the Oyo State branch of the National Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) as state chairmen of our respective political parties. African People Alliance Party (APA) my party came third in the last Presidential election; please visit INEC Website for full fact, APA even got their highest votes in my state. My party’s National Secretary in person of Alh. Sifawa Samaila is the current National Treasurer of IPAC. How come Waheed is not fully aware of this? How come my party is not a member of IPAC as he claimed? In IPAC it is mandatory for all the political parties to join because IPAC is the only avenue of communicating with INEC. The problem of Waheed Oyewole is that he has not read the IPAC Code of Conduct before rendering his lunatic statement or better still we shall translate it to Yoruba language if the English it was written is very difficult for him to comprehend. And for his information APA has never romanced the incumbent Governor Abiola Ajimobi instead we worked against him in the last general elections by adopting Senator Rasheed Adewolu Ladoja of the Accord Party. It was published in the Nigerian Newspapers. We directed all our Members to vote for him, please confirm from the present State Secretary of the Accord Party for full details. Oyo APA entourage was in Adewolu Ladoja’s house a day before the last governorship election” Adedoyin claimed.
David Akinola of PDC, who is also the State Chairman of Oyo State APPPS, said “Waheed Oyewole is brainless and should be shameful of himself for uttering such statement. He should know that all registered political parties in the country are automatic members of IPAC. The state branches are free to quit if they want depending on the conduct of such state chapter. We said it in our statement that we don’t know what they (Oyewole led IPAC) are doing; they don’t invite us to meetings that is our grudge with them. We heard a lot about how they used our party names to dube political candidates and political parties in the last general elections in Oyo State. We heard all they did in the name of Oyo IPAC. The whole of Oyo State are fully aware of all their misdeeds and our opting out of IPAC in Oyo State. Renowned and reputable online newspapers carried the news. Even the present Commissioner for Health Dr. Azeez Adeduntan Website published the news on his website. We shall publish it out, how they got money from H.E. Alao Akala of Labour Party, Engr. Seyi Makinde of SDP and Senator Teslim Folarin of PDP in the last general election. But my Party alongside APA stood together with the Accord Party candidate Senator Adewolu Rasheed Ladoja.
Oyo APPPS Secretary, Mr. Olaitan Fadunni, also the State Chairman of BNPP said “Oyewole has turned Oyo IPAC to a beggars association. Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State heard how they collected money from all the major candidates of different opposition political parties in the last governorship election, they even went to him for same and he disgraced them. That is how the Governor started disassociating himself from them. Oyewole never filled any candidate in the last election for his party and he was made IPAC Chairman, what a shame! And I’m fully sure that SDP, Labour, PDP and Accord Party would never be part of their fake meeting they claimed they had for they themselves know how irrelevant, fake and irresponsible Oyewole turned IPAC Oyo into. We challenged Oyewole to publish the names and signatures of those parties’ representatives that attended his illegal meeting. Since inauguration they have never released any press statement whether to commend or against the current government. We urge Oyo State Government to proscribe Oyo IPAC as an occult group and illegal association in the state”.
Meanwhile, the APPPS in the State lauded Alh. Muhammad Nalado, the National Chairman of IPAC in the country for his efforts in transforming IPAC and promoting peace and unity among political parties in the country.
