The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State has lambasted the governorship candidate of the defunct Allied Peoples Movement (APM) in the last general election, Adekunle Akinlade, describing his campaign for 2023 elections as “pitiable”.
The APC Caretaker Committee’s Publicity Secretary, Tunde Oladunjoye, while speaking on Fireworks, a recorded programme on Television Continental, on Monday said “it is too early to start discussing issues of 2023 agenda”
“It is pitiable for somebody who is not sure that he will wake up tomorrow to start thinking about 2023 and that’s the problem with do and die politics”, Oladunjoye replied in response to a question on the 2023 branded vehicles of Akinlade sighted in some parts of the state.
Oladunjoye remarked further that: “some professionals have abandoned their profession for politics because they feel politics is the easiest way to make cheap money. As far as am concerned, People in politics should have a second address. Don’t put all your life on politics. How can someone sit down and be talking about 2023, are you sure you’re going to wake up tomorrow?”
Meanwhile, He commended the Governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in the last general elections in Ogun State, Gboyega Nasir Isiaka, popularly known as GNI, for joining All Progressives Congress (APC) through a proper channel and unconditionally.
“GNI and many prominent politicians in Ogun State, including former Deputy Governor Salmot Badru, join e the APC and they were well received.
“Gboyega Isiaka is a fine gentleman, a first class brain; he has served and served well before. He along with other top politicians joined APC properly,” he said.
The APC spokesperson also admonished that politicians should put their faith in God who is in charge of today and future permutations: When we get to the bridge, we will cross it. Let God take control. Let’s play politics of togetherness, let’s play politics of progressiveness and leave God to take care of the future.”
