The Oyo State Governorship Candidate of the African Peoples Alliance Party (APA), Deacon Tolulope Adedoyin has accused the Oyo State Branch of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) of working, campaigning and beautifying their offices across the 33 local government with APC candidates’ posters.
This was contained in a press release issued and made available by the acting Chairman of the party, Elder Busari Agbolade to newsmen in Ibadan after an emergency meeting with some members of the party in the state at their party secretariat in Onireke, Ibadan.
According to Deacon Tolulope Adedoyin, “We all know that Oyo NURTW is now a political arm of APC. They have collapsed their structures into the party. This is dangerous and perilous for the successful conduct of the forthcoming governorship election in the state”.
“This is a grievous development and a show of ridicule. We have even heard they have signed and sealed contract with INEC to transport election materials to all the local government in the state. This won’t only be a grievous mistake but a graveous one if Oyo INEC goes ahead to use members of the NURTW to transport the election materials across the state”.
Finally, Deacon Tolulope Adedoyin advised Oyo State Branch of the National Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) not to use Oyo NURTW again for transportation of election materials as a result of their robust ties and bonds with the ruling party (APC) in the state.
