The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo State, has told the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr. Seyi Makinde, to be more concerned about the alleged uncertainty over his candidature than criticising the ruling party.

The party said that with the large turnout of supporters of the APC at the different rallies organized, Makinde should realise that he had no chance of becoming the next governor of the state.

The APC Publicity Secretary in Oyo State, Dr. AbdulAzeez Olatunde, who made the remark said the party was thankful to the people of the state for the support and reception given to the party during its presidential rally.

Dr. Olatunde said that APC was not surprised by “Makinde’s tantrums,” noting that it was in the character of “PDP to spill ill-logic of issues.”

The party explained that Makinde’s focus should be on the case at the Oyo State High Court sitting in Ibadan challenging his emergence as the gubernatorial candidate of PDP instead of his constant attack on the APC.

Dr. Olatunde urged Makinde to reflect on his political career in order not to delve into a lifetime of political failure, stressing that it was not even certain if Makinde would fly the PDP flag in the March 2 gubernatorial election in the state.

“Makinde is too inconsequential in the politics of the state but we need to counsel him to stop displaying his immaturity and inexperience in politics and governance. His candidature is being challenged and at the end of the day he might not even be the authentic candidate of the party.

“We urge him to reflect on his political career as he is treading the path of political oblivion and there will not be salvation when he gets to that stage,” Dr Olatunde pointed out.
