The statement credited to one Elder Adelowo Adebiyi, a self-styled leader of a certain group within the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, is not only mischievous, it is also wickedly calculated at smearing the good name and Godly image of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola, Ismail Omipidan, has said.
Omipidan, who is the Chief Press to the Governor, further said all those behind the malicious and unguarded statement might be the ones actually plotting something sinister.
The Chief Press Secretary was reacting to the Press Conference that was addressed by Adebiyi on Thursday.
Omipidan argued that only a mischievous character would accuse a person of the Governor’s standing, who in the last three years has not through his actions and inactions done anything to portray him as a man given to violence or the government he leads capable of assassination plot.
“This was a man some persons tried to assassinate last year. God in his infinite mercies delivered him. Till date, Mr. Governor has not lifted a finger. But if it were Adelowo, only God knows what would have happened.
“At his level as the former acting chairman of the party, if he has any issue, he should see security operatives and give them the particulars that will aid their job rather than make spurious and unguarded statements.
“That said, I want to implore security operatives to be on the alert. Elder Adebiyi and others might be the ones actually plotting something sinister and might therefore just be looking for an alibi. Isn’t it said that we judge others by our own standard?, Omipidan queried.
