The Iwo Federal Constituency of All Progressives Congress (APC) comprising Iwo, Ayedire and Ola Oluwa local government areas, on Thursday, disowned their own, the former Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti.

They have instead declared their support for the re-election of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola in the 2022 election in the state.

At a rally held at Oluwo Palace Square in Iwo, the Special Adviser to Governor Oyetola on Political Matters, Alh. Gbadebo Badru, said their priority was to ensure the re-election of Oyetola.

According to him: “We have seen several things that Oyetola has done for us. I want to assure you that Oyetola will still do everything you have been told that he will do.

“They have started again. They want to suffer us in Iwoland like they did in 2018. We won’t allow it to happen anymore.

“Alhaji Moshood Adeoti was Secretary to the State Government for eight years, Iwo-Osogbo road was completely abandoned.

“He was also the Chairman, Tenders Board for eight years, overseeing all government contracts, he couldn’t do anything about our road.

“Adeoti did not resign or leave the party until he was denied governorship ticket.

“That is because of his selfish interest. But we won’t allow him lead us astray in Iwoland. It won’t happen anymore.

“Iwo Federal Constituency has decided. We are standing with Oyetola. Adeoti should go and calm down and not bring bad things to us in Iwoland.

“Let’s all calm down. After Oyetola, then we can talk about West by the Grace of God,” he said.

Also addressing the party faithful and supporters at the event, Dr Amidu Tadese, a former Chief Whip of the State Assembly in 1992 and serving Commissioner for Water Resources and Energy, noted that Oyetola is the first Governor that loves Iwoland, adding that members of The Osun Progressives, TOP were in government for eight years when the State was bouyyant but did not play any major role in Iwoland.

He said, “The only road that Aregbesola claimed to do in Iwo was done by Kamorudeen Alao’s LG administration.

“Oyetola has started works on Lawyer Atanda road. After that, he will do Odoori to Adeeke and two other major roads.

“In the last 7 months, Oyetola has been sending us food monthly.

“Apart from that, our waterworks was established in 1952. Since then, it has been abandoned. Now, Oyetola has awarded the contract for its rehabilitation.

“Some people were there for 8 years, they couldn’t do anything. Now, they are back. We won’t allow them to spoil Iwoland,” he added.
