The Secretary to Osun State Government, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti has tendered his resignation letter as a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
Adeoti’s tendered his resignation letter a day after the APC governorship primary.
His resignation was obtained exclusively by Newsclickng.com
Recall that Adeoti was also a contender in the APC governorship primary which the current Chief of Staff Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola won on Friday had earlier announced his withdrawal.
Speaking in Osogbo on Sunday, through the Director of Communication of his campaign organisation, Mr. Kayode Agbaje, the SSG described the primary as a charade, claiming that the outcome did not represent the wish of the majority of the people of the state and the party.
He said, “The so-called primary held on Friday was a charade. The whole thing was a charade. That is not a true reflection of what the Osun people and party members want.
“The SSG is definitely going to contest but on which platform I can’t tell you now. I am not saying he will leave the APC but he will definitely contest this election. I can assure you.”
Meanwhile one of the strong and aggrieved aspirant, Mr Kunle Adegoke (popularly called K-RAD), had said he would challenge the conduct of the primary in court.
Adegoke had said although the direct primary was in accordance with the APC Constitution and the Nigerian constitution, the election was manipulated before its commencement to favour Oyetola.
