The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress ( APC) has cautioned the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to stop its threat to plunge the state into an avoidable crisis over the conduct of the local government election in the state.
According to the state chairman of the APC, Prince Gboyega Famodun in a statement issued by his Media Adviser, Kola Olabisi, in Osogbo yesterday, which was made available to the newsmen, the party frowned at the series of threats by the PDP at a press conference which was addressed by the state caretaker chairman of the party, Dr Akindele Adekunle, in Osogbo yesterday where he threatened the readiness of his party to promote chaos in the state.
It would be recalled that the Osun State Independent Electoral Commission ( OSSIEC) under the chairmanship of Otunba Segun Oladitan disclosed its readiness to conduct a local government election in October at a press conference in Osogbo on Tuesday.
The APC reminded the PDP that Governor Gboyega Oyetola who is still enjoying the protection of the constitution as the subsisting bonafide governor of the state would not allow any irritant to dictate to him on how to run his government within the stipulated four-year pact that he signed with the people of the state.
The ruling party told the PDP that there is an option available to approach the court instead of threatening to bring down the government of Oyetola.
The APC statement also reminded the PDP handlers led by Adekunle that the law of sedition is firmly in force to deal with anyone who is contemplating an insurrection against any lawful authority.
The statutory security outfits should also be at alert to nip in the bud any plans of any individual or group of renegades whose intention is to promote chaos in the state.
Famodun who stated that the use of self help has no nexus with a democratic institution explained that the OSSIEC as a corporate body can sue and be sued by anyone or a corporate body which has an axe to grind with it.
