Oyo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has stated that it is disappointed in the action of some aggrieved members of the party.
The party made this disclosure while reacting to a vote of no confidence passed on Governor Seyi Makinde by some members of the party.
InfoStride News recalls that some aggrieved members of the party had on Monday said that they had passed a vote of no confidence in the governor.
However, the PDP while reacting, said that it was disappointed in what the aggrieved members did.
The party, in a statement made available to the media through its publicity Secretary, Engineer Akeem Olatunji, described the action of the aggrieved members as anti-party.
Olatunji, in the statement, described the aggrieved members of the party as selfish politicians.
“We want to state unequivocally that no man or woman with genuine love for his or her own household would want to destroy the family except such man or woman has started receiving gratification or personal benefits to accomplish such task.
“There is no part of the world where the political landscape is devoid of mixed feelings from time to time due to presumably unachieved expectations for whatever reason, but that is never a licence to embark on a campaign of sheer political blackmail in order to recruit unsuspecting political members into a selfish, perilous and very personal scheme to bring down a God Sent Man simply because of some unfulfilled personal and political gain, to the detriment of the masses.
“Some of the members who claimed to be aggrieved are merely acting out their frustrations after their candidates in government were either redeployed due to incompetence or shown the exit door due to gross misconduct bothering on challenge of integrity. The fact remains that they will never tell you details of their supposed grievances against Governor Seyi Makinde other than the very parochial narrative of ‘unfulfilled promises’, and these spurious claims are merely aimed at currying undue and undeserved public sympathy.
“As the party’s congress approaches, their voices against Governor Makinde and his performing government have been raised to the rooftops not because GSM has stopped performing or breaking new grounds of success in governance, but simply because they felt their personal political expectations and gratifications were denied them in the larger interest of the good people of Oyo State.
“While we acknowledge that it is in order for politicians participating in politics and political activities to have personal aspirations and political expectations for their commitment and services to the party, it is very important to stress emphatically that such personal or political aspirations and expectations must not at any point override the ultimate interest of the party and, therefore, there should never at any point be a foreclosure to healthy political engagements and communication within the party among the stakeholders”.
