Stop fighting opposition, focus on governance – South West NNPP tells Abiodun



The South West chapter of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, has advised Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State to stop wasting tax payers money in fighting opposition figures in the state.

The party enjoined the governor to focus on how to improve the socio-economic condition of the state.

The South West Secretary of the the party, Dr Babatunde Oke, spoke in q statement made available to DAILY POST on Saturday in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital.

Oke, in the statement, called on Abiodun to invest his energy in activities that have the potential of bringing Ogun State out of years socio-economic stagnation.

Parts of the statement read, “It was reliably gathered that Ogun State governor is behind the invasion of our party’s state secretariat located at Fajol House, beside Access Bank, Car wash, Adatan, Abeokuta by the security agents.

“I personally went to the state command of the Police and the DSS to lodge complaints, made explanations and clarifications, all which entered into the deaf ears of the security agents.

“No soothsayer is needed to know that the security agents are acting the script of Governor Dapo Abiodun. How can the DSS and the Police stop a national party like NNPP from holding its legitimate meetings? Where is our right of association and freedom of assembly?

“The duty of the Police and the DSS are to provide adequate security for members of our great party before, during and after its meetings.

“All these facts were made available to both the Police and the DSS, but unfortunately, they declined the acknowledgement simply because Dapo Abiodun is involved.

“We are using this medium to reach out to the Nigeria President, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to call Governor Dapo Abiodun to order.

“We in the same manner call on the Inspector General of Police and the Director General of DSS on the need to call both the Commissioner of Police, Ogun State Command as well as Director, DSS Ogun State Command, to order.

“Their responsibility is to ensure adequate security for all in Ogun State, and not allowing themselves to be manipulated by Governor Dapo Abiodun and his cohorts.”
