The Governorship Campaign Organisation of the Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has mocked the the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on the way it handled its primaries in the state.
The opposition party described the APC as a group of individuals specialised in truncating the will of the people.
The group berated the ruling party over its failure to conclude the legislative primaries of the party which was held on Friday, May 27, 2022.
Speaking in a statement a signed by Mallam Olawale Rasheed, the organisation berated the APC and Governor Gboyega Oyetola for demonstrating incompetency in public governance and in party administration.
It added that the failure of APC-led administration in the State had now extended to lack of capacity to transparently organise free and fair primaries and congresses.
“It is hard to imagine that nearly a week after primaries were supposedly held by the APC for various elective offices across Osun State, the outcomes are still a source of controversies. If APC needs help, we are ready to help them organise a credible primary.
“This shameful and undemocratic approach has left many confused as aspirants and their supporters took turns to declare themselves winners. It is the height of irresponsibility and this goes to show that the APC can no longer be trusted with the management of the State.
“Whereas, the PDP conducted credible, fair, and free primaries and candidates for available positions are known to all, the APC put up a charade that not only makes a mockery of democracy, but also explains why it has done a very bad job in managing Osun state over the years.
“If the APC cannot conduct transparent primaries, it will not be hard to understand why its management of public resources is marred by confusion. If the APC cannot be sincere with its membership by ensuring that the wishes of the majority prevail, it is clear why lies and deceits are the tools of governance in the past twelve years,” the party said.
It said that it will be entirely hopeless to expect a party that could not manage its affairs to do anything better for Osun as a whole
