A former Commissioner for Finance in Osun state, Dr Wale Bolorunduro has declared that he remains a strong member of the ruling All Progressives Congress and couldn’t be enticed by anyone or group to work with the Peoples Democratic Party.
A statement from Dr Walé Bolorunduro/ Bibiire Media Team on Friday claimed that some members of the PDP were making efforts to associate Bolorunduro with the PDP and its candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke. The team described such step as wrong and ridiculous maintaining that Bolorunduro remains a progressive and stalwart of APC in the state
The team therefore warned the affected factional PDP members against peddling rumours that Dr Bolorunduro has associated with them. The team said the individuals had failed in their mission of attempting to poach the former commissioner.
The statement reads, “We have noticed with dismay the attempts by a PDP faction and their internal collaborators, who had earlier on tried to railroad Governor Oyetola into their PDP internal crisis. They are back into their mischief by trying to bring in Dr Walé Bolorunduro into their crisis, having failed in their first attempt.
“While everything about the propaganda of associating us with PDP and their candidate is wrong and ridiculous, the package and deliveries are void of common sense. It is audible to the deaf and visible to the blind that they on a failed mission. Truly, we stand by God. Our recent activities to support our party and stalwarts at grassroots levels in Oriade/Obokun had already sent PDP out of our constituency and we can understand their apprehensions.
“We are not available for your (PDP) use. To us, politics is a matter of ideology. When we had cause to disagree with our party, we didn’t go to PDP, so it can not be now or in 2022. We are already enjoying the presence of President Buhari and H.E. Rauf Aregbesola at the federal level. At the state, we are proud of the great jobs, Chief Gboyega Oyetola is doing. These speak of the high premium our party put on performance and service to the people.
“Osun is getting better and will continue to get better. APC Osun is getting better and nipping issue in the bud under the capacity State Chairman, Omo Oba Gboyega Famodun, who has always won elections; the master strategist himself.
“To the PDP stalwarts in Oriade and Obokun, who are looking for an abode, once you are ready to embrace CHANGE, you are welcome to APC, you know we have been welcoming many of you to our midst since 2011. Walé Bolorunduro has always been happy to work with and accommodate others. We won all election in 2014 and 2015 when Walé Bolorunduro was heading the campaign team and you know we were a pain in the neck for you, on the single one you won marginally.
“Dr Walé Bolorunduro remains a progressive and a stalwart of APC. We are busy with making our party stronger at grassroots by being there for our people.”
