The Senator representing Ondo South Senatorial District of Ondo state in the National Assembly, Senator Yele Omogunwa, has accused failed aspirants in the just concluded primaries of the All Progress Congress (APC) of plotting sponsored protests against him.
Omogunwa who is the senatorial candidate of the party in the forthcoming general election, specifically mentions Dr. Timothy Felder or being behind the plans.
The lawmaker said they have perfected plans to organize unsuspecting members of the public to protest against the decision of the party’s National Working Committee on my choice as candidate.
In a statement he personally issued on Monday, Omogunwa said, “While I agree that it is the right of the people to carry out peaceful protests, this which is coming in the heels of the NWC decision that I will be allowed to fly the flag of the APC appears preposterous.
“Not only does it amount to the anti-party, but it is also a clear indication that those whose personal interests have been placed far above the party interest have deployed untoward .means to hijack the party.
“As far as I am concerned, the planned sponsored protest coming amid my concerted effort to reconcile all cleavages within the party in the district is highly regrettable and unconscionably misdirected and mischievous in all ramifications.”
Omogunwa, however, called on the general public, especially the people of the six local government areas to disregard the move aimed at taking the hand of the clock backward.
His words: “I respect all party leaders, including Dr. Felder and therefore, it is my wish to him that he reverses himself from the move which he has unpredictably funded.”
