All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State has expressed worry over the attacks lunched by members and leaders of the party in the state against themselves on social media.
This was sequel to throw of tantrums by members of the party in the camps of Governor Gboyega Oyetola and his predecessor, Minister for Interior, Rauf Aregbesola against themselves.
The party Chairman, Prince Gboyega Famodun said it was appalling, strange and unethical that some party leaders and members have decided “to engage in the lowering of the prestige of the party through their unguarded utterances online.
He said this has been doing unimaginable damage to the fortune of the party in the state.
In a statement issued by his Media Consultant, Kola Olabisi, in Osogbo on Tuesday, Famodun warned against such development, saying that the party leadership will view failure to maintain peace within the party with appropriate constitutional sanctions.
The party chairman said, “it was a pity that some of the leaders and members of the party are bereft of when to talk and when not to talk, forgetting that meanings could be read to whatever they say as the response of their principals.
He said further that he was yet to come to terms with whoever invented the imaginary rift between former Governor Rauf Aregbesola and his successor, Governor Gboyega Oyetola.
“If it’s the wish of the opposition that these two illustrious leaders of APC should be at war, must whoever calls himself a worthy and bonafide member of the same APC be instrumemtal to underscoring and amplifying such?
“Who even tells them that Aregbesola and Oyetola are at loggerheads? This rumour is only existing in the imagination of those spreading it for the only reason known to them which is mischievous.
“Assuming without conceding that there is a misunderstanding between the two eminent leaders of our party, should it be the duty of members of the same party to allow it to fester?
“Enough is enough. Some difficult members of the party should engage in how to further add value to our party instead of having it disintegrated through their unguarded utterances and less than dignifying conducts.
“What are we even saying? Have those who are spreading the unfounded rumour of leadership rift in the state APC forgotten that there are oppositional hawks waiting in the wing to launch an attack through the imaginary cracks they are creating?
Famodun cautioned that the APC leadership in the state would not hesitate to invoke some of the provisions of the party constitution to deal with any recalcitrant member of the party who engages continuously in needlessly disturbing the serene atmosphere of the APC in the state.
He disclosed that the content of what should be coming from those who are constitutionally allowed to speak for the continuity government of Governor Oyetola should be a compliment to his administration and not avoidable burden.
