As the Local Government election is approaching, some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Irepodun South Local Council Development Area (LCDA) of Osun State protested the aspiration of the chairman of the council, Kamalideen Oloyede.
Oloyede was elected as the chairman of the council in 2018 when the LCDA was created.
The aggrieved members took their protest to the palace of Elerin of Erin, Oba Yusuf Omoloye Oyegbodun II.
The protesters were armed with placards with different inscriptions: “4th term is abomination”, Erin-Osun youth says no to jk 4th term ambition”, Mr Governor must remove him from the race”.
They alleged that Oloyede has been ruling the LCDA since its creation, adding that many other members of the party are also capable and qualified to lead the council.
One of the protesters who spoke with journalists, Opeyemi Yusuf, explained that the youth trooped out to express their discontentment over the alleged endorsement of the present chairman by the governor of the state and the party leadership in the state.
He said that the local government is not happy with the present situation in the party, adding that thousands of APC members are loyal to the present government under the leadership of Governor Gboyega Oyetola, hence the need to give another person chance to take the mantle of the leadership in the LCDA.
