2023: Your False Alarm On APC Billboards Laughable, No One Takes You Serious Anymore–Oyo PDP Replies Folarin


Oyo state People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has again cautioned the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state and its 2023 governorship candidate, Senator Teslim Folarin against raising false alarm saying action is tantamount to mockery of the nation’s fragile democracy.

This was as the ruling PDP maintained that the people of the state have since known Folarin as a pathetic liar, serial loser in the governorship race, and a desperate politician who’s untamed ill-conceived governorship ambition has been exposed and is no longer taken seriously by neither any serious politician nor the people of the state.

A statement by the ruling PDP on Wednesday morning by its State Publicity Secretary, Akeem Olatunji stressed the need for politicians to understand that nobody can obtain political power if God has not made it so.

It would be recalled that Folarin’s APC issued a statement not long after the PDP released a statement cautioning the opposition party after the ugly incident at the Late Lam Adesina’s 10th year memorial ceremony where Folarin’s sponsored APC touts under his personal watch booed the Deputy Governor of the State, Barrister Bayo Lawal, who had attended the event as a show of honour and respect to the memory of the late former governor while delivering his speech.

The ruling party had several times appealed to the state Commissioner of Police, CP Adebowale Williams to caution Folarin and his political thugs to order following their unabated attacks on PDP billboards and posters before they plunge the state into an avoidable state of public disorderliness, leading to the order of the police Commissioner, to investigate allegations of billboards vandalism.

According to the PDP statement however, Olatunji noted that when Folarin was grandstanding in the euphoria of becoming a senator by intimidating other politicians in his party and oppressing the same people who gave him the mandate by going to remove an electric power transformer, he didn’t realize that God was testing him.

The ruling party stressed that were it not Late Alhaji Lamidi Adedibu, the political grandmaster of Oyo state who’s political powers and influence helped Folarin won his first and second term, he could not have been able to win a state House of Assembly seat by himself adding that his third term in office as a Senator, which was also occasioned by the Buhari tsunami, has again proved to the world that Folarin can never be trusted with power because of lack of his leadership traits and attributes.

According to the Oyo state PDP, Folarin should tell the whole world what he has achieved as a three time senator apart from amassing wealth through resources meant for his Senatorial district as well as listing projects executed by Federal Ministries Departments and Agencies (MDSs) as facilitated projects.

The party accused Folarin of being a political machinery and an opportunist who is the architect of the total collapse of the APC in the state by repeating the same dreaded political style similar to a coup d’etat which chased him out of the PDP leading to even the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu refusing to accept and endorse his 2023 governorship candidacy.

“What Folarin did before, during and after APC state Congress and governorship primaries elections in terms of unleashing mayhem on his own party members and fellow aspirants such as Bayo Adelabu ‘Penkelemes’ his main challenger still leave sore memories and scars of wanton destruction of properties in the minds of many.

“Folarin’s violent attitude emanating from an untamed desperation to be governor at all cost led to series of attacks and vandalization of billboards and posters belonging to his then rival in their APC leading to locking out APC members from Obafemi Awolowo stadium, venue of the party primary election by security operatives.

“Attacks on Adelabu’s properties at his Jericho campaign office keeps everyone abreast with the magnitude of desperation and darkness in Folarin’s heart all in the name of desperately seeking to seize political power at all cost regardless of the inevitable consequences on the people and the state.

“Folarin’s case is that of a destroyer mischievously and treacherously disguising as a victim of an evil plan orchestrated, and executed by his sponsored agents and yet deceitfully screaming for help in order to redirect the attention to substance instead of the core subject.

“The good people of the state have long cease to give the slightest atom of credence to your words because they love you enough to know that Folarin is not made for such exalted office of honour, decency, and prestige or else the state may become a theatre of war and a shadow of itself considering Folarin’s violence history with anybody not on the same page with him.

“Folarin can not run away from his shadows no matter how much it disgusts him, wherever you go, your own image is right there beside you to remind you of who you truly are even if you don’t want to embrace the sad reality.

“Going by Folarin’s penchant for lies, false alarm, political violence and brigandage, the senator has become an excess baggage, an unavoidable political liability to not just his political party but the entire political landscape in Oyo state as well as every political sportsman who believes in the supremacy of God to give power to whoever He pleases. We advise Folarin and his co-travelers on the sad path of political perdition to refrain from their evil ways or face perpetual consumed politically.”
