Culled from Vanguard News
OSOGBO — The Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has asked the national chairman of the party, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur and other national leaders of the party to call the Speaker, House of Representatives, Hon. Aminu Tambuwal to order over his alleged recent utterances onthe political situations in the state.
Also, the party described the recent statement credited to the state Chapter of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) that the party should look for a credible candidate ahead of the 2014 governorship poll as careless statement, saying that the party’s aspirants are all competent individuals with good educational background to lead the state.
The call was as a result of the recent visits by Hon. Tambuwal to Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State where he was said to have commended the governo for his laudable achievements.
Tambuwal alongside other prominent members of the PDP including former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar were in the staterecently for the official launch of “Opon Imo,” an initiative of the Aregbesola’s government and both of them hailed Aregbesola’s achievements.
The latest visit of Tambuwal was the second time he would be visiting GovernorAregbesola this year, a development whichthe state chapter of the PDP considered as incredible, especially considering his commendation of Aregbesola’s programmes.
But the PDP in a statement by its Chairman, Alhaji Ganiyu Olaoluwa at the weekend said it was unbecoming of a national leader of the party like Tambuwal to praise-sing Aregbesola each time he was in the state.
Olaoluwa, who condemned the visits and utterances of Tambuwa, asked whether theSpeaker, Tambuwal is a member of the PDP or a supporter of Governor Aregbesola.
