The Ibadan Youth Solidarity Movement, IYSM, has decried what it describes as an effort by some people to malign the good name of the Chairman, Oyo Pacesetters Company, Mr Dare Adeleke.
In a statement signed in Ibadan by Gbolahan Ige, the group said it has watched with disturbing dismay, efforts of some PDP members to cause disaffection in the party and defame the name of Adeleke in the process.
The statement reads:
“Again, we the Ibadan Solidarity Youth Movement, cannot keep quiet watching activities of some people in our state.
Honourable Dare Adeleke is our leader in whom we are well pleased. A man of gumption, a man of peace and a man who though he fears nobody, respects all.
We are suprised that Mr Emmanuel Oluwole Alawode is fanning the ember of discord among the leaders of Ibadan South East against Hon. Adeleke.
The question we would would like to ask is, why he running helter skelter to control the standing committee, of the legislative arm of the council?
Another question we would like to ask is, why is he painting the name of a good man in bad colours?
It is indeed Oluwole Alawode who is known to be fraudulent and dishonest. His antic which is no open secret is to put a stooges at the Finance, Works and Health arms but unfortunately, he doesn’t have what it takes.
Why has he taken to maligning our indefatigable leader Hon Dare Adeleke?
Adeleke is known in the whole of Oyo as a man of peace and resounding political achievements.
Why should he intervene in legislative arm? What business has the Lion in a Hyena pack?
It is highly disturbing that yesterday, Thursday, 20th of August, Alawode disturbed the peaceful affairs of Mapo Hall. Our party has never before witnessed such barbaric act and we hope never to witness such again.
We would advise Alawode and all his cohorts to please leave Hon. Adeleke out of their messy affairs.
