Adeleke Receives Hot Lashes, As APC Nat. Sec, Basiru Calls Him Incompetent | SEE REASONS
Basiru claimed those who helped install the Adeleke administration in the state were already regretting their decision.
The former Senate spokesperson made the claims at a reception organised for him by the APC leadership of Osogbo Federal Constituency on Saturday.
While calling on party members to resolve their differences, work towards a stronger party and sack the current governor of the state, Ademola Adeleke, from office in 2026, he charged them not to cause internal disruption.
In his words, “You must work towards building a strong party. You must work very hard to reposition it for a better outing in the next round of elections.
“Less than a year after, those that wanted to destroy the good fortune of our state are already lamenting. Those that they put in government in the state don’t know how to govern.
“They are appointing SSA, Government House Pool; SSA Oranmiyan Newtown; SSA, children; SSA swimming pool and so on. They must be sacked from the government.
“When we sack him (Adeleke) in 2026, he will go for three days Diploma, as usual, to learn about NGO after he failed to sack Iyaloja General. The APC is an organised party. Let’s show more commitment.”
In a reaction, the state Commissioner for Information and Public Engagement, Kolapo Alimi, said he was not surprised since the APC National Secretary had a track record of talking recklessly.
Defending the recent appointment of aides by Governor Adeleke, Alimi maintained that they did not constitute grounds for non-performance.
