The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor of Oyo State, ‘Seyi Makinde, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, has described attempts by the opposition All Progressives Congress(APC) in the state to politicise the killings in Igangan as wicked and an unruly display of mindless politics.
Oyo State and the country at large, must bury their heads in shame “each time we discuss security matters in Nigeria.”
“The APC campaigned on three fronts in 2015 and 2019: to fix security, economy and fight corruption.
“Those three areas have only been worsened in the six years of its leadership with life suddenly becoming brutish and short, while Nigeria is fast drifting to a pariah state with the recent ban on Twitter.
“Rather than seek to grandstand and dance on the grave of our innocent compatriots from Igangan, who were hacked down by agents of darkness, the APC should mount the podium in the 33 local governments of Oyo State and apologize for bringing a clueless government that has totally demobilised the nation’s security.
“Finally, the leadership of APC in Oyo State cannot use the Igangan crisis to stage a comeback to reckoning as even the South West APC leaders’ meeting held in Lagos last month did not feature any prominent APC leader from Oyo State.
