Former Ekiti State Commissioner for Environment, Otunba Segun Olanrewaju has urged members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the State not to relent in their support for the party’s National Vice Chairman (South-West) and former governor of the State, Chief Segun Oni in his bid to right the judicial wrongs done to him and the entire State.
Olanrewaju, who was speaking during a meeting in Ado-Ekiti yesterday said he was totally committed to the case instituted at the Supreme Court by Oni against the October 15, 2010 Appeal Court judgment that removed him from office, adding that; “What we all need at this time is prayers and continuous support for our leader and man of integrity, Segun Oni.”
He said as against the impression created by his posters that were pasted in Ado-Ekiti and other towns in the State a few days ago, he had not declared his intention to vie for any elective position in the State.
His words; “To the best of knowledge, the posters emanated from some friends, who must be of the opinion that I posses what it takes to vie for any elective position in Ekiti State and I thank them for their show of love and public demonstration of their confidence in me.
“As of now, my total commitment is to the case instituted at the Supreme Court by our leader, Chief Segun Oni against the October 15, 2010 Appeal Court judgment that removed him from office.
“I also remained committed to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and its quest to wrestle power from the present crop of locusts that are ravaging the State.
“Therefore, I implore those behind the posters to respect the above stated positions.
“As for me, the time is not ripe for the expression of any political aspiration. When the time comes and I am convinced that I should contest any elective position, it will definitely be under the platform of the PDP and our well-known political family will be adequately consulted.”
He called for unity among the party members, saying; “When we walk together, no one can distabilise us and when we are united as one family, victory is certain any time election is held in Ekiti State.”
