Stop Using Tinubu’s Name To Stall Governance, PDP Tells Oyetola

Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic () has warned former Governor Gboyega Oyetola to stop using  the name of President to disrupt governance in the state.

A statement issued by the party state chairman, Hon Sunday Bisi, yesterday accused the former governor of pursuing a failed agenda to make Osun State ungovernable through dropping of Mr President's name to perpetrate political evil in the state.

He accused Oyetola of activities which are capable of destroying the peace and stability of the state and negatively undermine the presidential agenda for Osun State, South West and as a whole.

PDP further accused the former governor of making moves targeted at destroying the peace of the state, misrepresenting presidential intention, deliberate disruption of state-federal relations or attempted unlawful abuse of federal power against state officials performing their statutory roles.

“Mr Oyetola has been dropping Mr President's name to manipulate federal agencies to serve his selfish interest. The other time, he hijacked SMEDAN  SME programme to serve his own faction of , even leaving out other APC members, giving Mr President a bad name. He did the same on distribution which he allegedly took from NEMA but which he shared to his faction against reaching out to the generality of Osun people as Mr President clearly preferred in line with the law.

“Rather than working to unite his party ahead of 2026, he is busy trying to make the state ungovernable, disrupting federal – state collaboration and attempting to use federal agencies such as the FCT to harass state officials. We learnt Oyetola has used the FCT DSS to threaten of the Spokesperson to the Osun State Governor for performing his statutory duties of projecting and promoting Mr Governor.

“We warn that such an attempt at arm twisting is a failed strategy as officials and citizens are entitled to the enforcement of their fundamental human rights as enshrined in the constitution and as the same constitution also regulates human rights and intergovernmental relations among the three tiers of . We are also convinced that both the and the national headquarters of the DSS will not endorse deployment of sensitive state services to pursue personal political vendetta.

“Mr Oyetola should stop his evil agenda against Osun state because he should know we have the capacity to tame him but for the state government's due respect for Mr President. If he does not stop, we will open his records which we are not doing because of our respect for the Presidency.



“We urge Mr President and the entire Presidency to nip in the bud the nefarious, vindictive,  anti-state and vengeful activities of Mr Oyetola which are tarnishing the image of the Number One Citizen of the nation as he is using the President's name to pursue vendetta and activities directly contrary to the bigger agenda of the Presidency.



“Mr President should call Mr Oyetola to order before plunging Osun into an avoidable crisis. Osun is peaceful and our Governor is delivering dividends of democracy under the umbrella of good governance.The State-Federal partnership is moving smoothly and no sore loser should be allowed to jeopardize the larger political and bigger interest of Mr President”, the statement concluded.
