Oyo ward congresses: Ajimobi after my life – Lawmaker, Samson Olusunbo

Controversies trailing the last weekend conduct of the ward congresses of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo State took a new twist yesterday as the lawmaker representing Oluyole Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Honorable Samson Olusunbo Olugbemi, has cried out over an alleged plot by some named persons to sponsor violent attack against him.

In a statement he personally issued and made available to journalists in Ibadan on Wednesday, Olugbemi alleged that some criminal elements believed to be working for Senator Abiola Ajimobi were behind the plot in view of the roles he played in the conduct of the ward congresses which outcome did not favour the governor and his SENACO group.

“There is no denying the fact that I featured prominently in the struggle that liberated all the genuine members of the APC in Oyo State last weekend when the outcome of the Party’s ward congresses put paid to the seven years of Ajimobi’s tyranny and autocratic reign as the leader.

“The party was returned to the people despite the high level of violence and intimidation which the governor introduced prior to the conduct of the ward congress exercise. It is recalled that vicious thugs who unleashed terror on the defenceless Party faithful at the state secretariat were guided to Oke-Ado by some security aides of the governor while a popular Ibadan based businessman supervised the attacks in broad daylight.

“Apparently, the governor’s camp was surprised to find out that the attacks could not deter us from successfully championing the cause of genuine party faithful who had the last laugh at the end of the ward congress. This development jolted Sen. Ajimobi and his political slaves and the next thing for them is to get rid of people like me.

“I have taken the necessary steps by reporting them to the relevant security agencies and I also believe it was imperative for me to inform the whole world about their nefarious plan in case anything happens to me and members of my family. I have also reported the two self-acclaimed leaders in my constituency who carry out dirty jobs for the governor in exchange for crumbs as they are exposed already.” Olugbemi added.
