THE Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Oyo State has sharply disagreed over the decision of the State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi of All Progressives Congress (APC) to inaugurate caretaker committees for the 57 Local Government Areas (LGAs) and Local Council Development Authorities (LCDAs) of the State, instead of conducting council elections.
The party described the recent appointment as illegality taking too far and aberration to the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria.
Contained in a statement issued by the party’s publicist, Alhaji Akeem Azeez viewed that, “it is not only ridiculous but also unthinkable to see that the All Progressives Congress (APC) who prides itself as the only party who has the interest and concerns of the people at heart will deprive the people their inalienable right to choose their choice of Leader at the grassroots which is consider as closest to the people of the state for almost six years of APC rule in Oyo state”.
The statement reads further, “the Social Democratic Party (SDP) bemoans the elitist style of governance which can be aptly define as government of the few by the few and for the few as evidence with the appointment of the children and relatives of the elites which include blood brother of the Governor of Oyo State which is a total departure of worldwide known and accepted definition of Democracy. Their actions and otherwise have not only shown APC as not only anti people and there can never be worse anti masses policies than the one forced on the people of this state by the ruling party. Where is the hope for common man?”.
The party, therefore urged the people of the state to be wary of politicians who are simply wolfs in cats skin in subsequent elections in the state starting from the much anticipated Local Government election in the state.
