Opposition parties planning civilian coup – Oyo APC

The All Progressives Congress in Oyo State has accused opposition parties in the state of planning to subvert the wish of the electorate in the 2019 governorship election .
The ruling party, however , said all schemes by the opposition to wrest power from the incumbent government would prove unsuccessful .
“ The leadership of some opposition political parties have , in recent times , been involved in talks with a view to dislodging the ruling APC in 2019 , using the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party. Notable among the parties are Accord Party, Social Democratic Party and Labour Party.
“ What they are planning is a civilian coup against the electorate . But it will not see the light of day . Most characters involved in the gang- up have had opportunities in the past to impact positively on the lives of the people but they failed , ” the APC Public Relations Officer , Olawale Sadare, said in a statement issued on Saturday .
The statement accused a former governor of the state , Rashidi Ladoja , of leading the opposition .
“ Among Rashidi Ladoja ’ s co - travellers is Senator Olufemi Lanlehin , who has a penchant for sneaking into Ibadan from his Lagos abode to cause political mischief, like he did at the Olubadan ’ s palace few days ago . Or, are we to talk about a politically naive big spender , and some troubled ‘ guests’ of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission as capable of dislodging the APC in 2019 ?
“ Nigerians will not support any alignment , re -alignment or gang- up by the PDP and similar elements in future elections . All those planning to benefit from such scheme should realise that it will end in futility , ” Sadare said .
