-….Osun APC Warns Adeleke
The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has cautioned the newly-inaugurated Governor Ademola Adeleke to stop insulting the sensibilities of the State House of Assembly with the illegal and crude manners he has been rolling out obnoxious and vindictive executive orders to undermine the authority of the state legislative arm of government.
It would be recalled that within 24 hours of his inauguration, Governor Adeleke has been embarrassing his administration by issuing out series of executive orders to reverse some of the appointments made by his predecessor, Mr Gboyega Oyetola.
According to the deputy Osun State chairman of the APC, Sooko Taju Lawal, in a statement issued by the State Media Director of the party, Chief Kola Olabisi, in Osogbo, the Osun State capital today, those advising the new governor should tell him to stop behaving like a military administrator who could wake up from the wrong side of his bed and dishing out any unpopular and unconscionable order as he wishes.
The state APC chief reminded Adeleke that there is a limit to the executive orders he could give without recourse to the state House of Assembly.
He observed that keen watchers of unfolding political events in Osun State since his inauguration as the state governor would not hesitate to conclude that he is bereft of his duties as the state governor.
Lawal stated that it is not part of the duties of a governor who is worth his salt to willingly highten political tension in his domain as the end result of such would not be in his interest and the interest of the governed.
The Osun APC which explained that it knew the limitations of the new governor with reference to performance rating wondered why the galaxy of his supposed knowledgeable cronies could not advise him aright.
Lawal reminded Adeleke that the political venture he embarked upon could only lead to perdition as he has pointedly started on a wrong footing.
The state APC deputy chairman slammed Governor Adeleke that he could not see any escape root from the executive rascality which he has started dishing out like a bull in a China shop.
Lawal stated that some of the decisions he has just taken without recourse to the state House of Assembly would boomerang with a foreseeable devasting effect soonest.
In his words: “Osun State is not an enterprise owned by the Adeleke family where the governor can just wake up and dishing out executive orders which could not be for any other reason but vindictiveness.
“Governor Adeleke has stepped on the tail of a tiger and he must be ready to face the consequences as the nation and all its component states are ruled by the constitution.
“Another laughable executive misconduct of Governor Adeleke was his order that the three newly-enthroned monarchs in the state who have been duly given their staff of offices should step aside with an order to the police to lock the palace.
“Governor Adeleke and his advisers should know that it’s only a court of law that can issue such an order asking any duly-enthroned monarch to step aside from his palace.
“With the unfolding development, Governor Adeleke has willingly thrown a stone at the colony of bees and he should be ready to be stung”.
“If it’s not a vengeance mission against some monarchs, why was it that the obnoxious executive order was selectively served as it was not the only three Obas who were singled out who were enthroned within the period in question?
“The house rats should plead with the bush rat that there is an urgent need for him to avert the effect of the overburdened use of the proverbial banana pills”, the Osun APC cautioned Adeleke.
