‘Mischievous and wickedly calculated’ – Oyetola’s aide reacts to Aregbesola’s faction assassination plot claim
Ismail Omipidan, Chief Press Secretary to Governor Oyetola has reacted to a statement credited to one Elder Adelowo Adebiyi, a leader of APC-TOP, a group within the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Describing the statement where APC-TOP leaders raised alarms of alleged assaination plot as a mischievous one, Omipidan also stated that it is wickedly calculated at smearing the good name and Godly image of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola.
Recall that Elder Adebiyi who is the leader of a group in the Osun chapter of All Progressives Congress fondly called TOP in a press conference held on Thursday accused the Osun governor, Oyetola and his government of planning to assassinate some top members of the group.
Reacting to the statement credited to Elder Adebiyi, Omipidan argued that all those behind the malicious and unguarded statement might be the ones actually plotting something sinister.
Omipidan further stated 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.
