A former PDP chairman in Kwara State and Chieftain of the Ruling APC, Akogun Iyiola Oyedepo who was mentioned in the leaked audio of former Kwara central Senatorial district aspirant Comrade Musbau Esinrogunjo has clear the air of his involvement in the attempt to “strangle” the Governor Of the state to death.
In a statement personally signed by him he said:
“Several calls have been put to me on Comrade Esinrogunjo audio recording. The last time I saw Esinrogunjo was 31st January 2020. That was the day I unveiled my Institute, Nations Leadership Institute. The Speaker of Kwara State House of Assrmbly, Rt Honorable Danlad Yakubu, did the unveiling. Esinrogunjo was one of the invitees.
When the young man complained about his frustrations about the government, I told him about the brewing intra Party crisis which I said could be worse than inter-Party crisis.
This has been my view about unreasonable intra-party crisis that has engulfed APC Kwara Chapter, shortly after our Party and our government assumed office.
This same view I had aired before the Governor of Kwara State when I, along with six Elders of our Party were before him before the close 2019. This same view I aired before the brother of the Governor, Dr Alimi Abdulrazaq and five others sometimes in the month of January, this year. I stand by my view that intra-party crisis should not be our main program after our landslide victory of 2019.
Am not a Politician of violence as I do not have that record. Killing a Governor for whatever reason should not be contemplated by anybody. I am not in the habit of any outburst against this government, despite the opposition’s provocation to do so. Am of the view that the Governor should be left to run his government as he pleases. Future is the acid test of values, it is time that will tell whether the Governor had been right or not. I did not participate in the liberation politics for personal benefits. Am already fulfilled now that we have redefined Kwara politics. Generations to come am sure will hail my stand and contributions on Kwara Politics. That is bigger and greater than holding an office.
I really do not want anybody to intrude into this my dignified silence.
Whatever is between the Governor and Comrade Esinrogunjo is really not my concern” the statement concludes.
