The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State has described Gboyega Famodun, a factional chairman of the party in the state as a failed party administrator.

The party in a press statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Abiodun Agboola said Famodun is a harbinger of misfortune in the party’s, adding that his "incompetence, gluttonous attitude, and hypocrisy" brought Osun APC to where it is today.

It would be recalled that Famodun had recently described the former governor of the state, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola as an ingrate after the latter declared his support for the Rasaq Salinsile-led faction and The Osun Progressives, TOP caucus in the state.

Famodun said Aregbesola’s open support for a faction of the party reduces his status as a former governor and as a serving minister of the party.

Reacting, Agboola through the statement fired back at Famodun saying he talks irresponsibly to please his paymasters.

He advised Famodun to "bury his head in shame and shut his mouth up" as the party handed over to him gets enmeshed in crisis because of his "ineptitude and selfishness".

The statement reads: “Eventually, Famodun owns up to the fact that he is not fit to be the Chairman by virtue of his response to the comment made by the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola. Famodun confirmed our position long time ago of his inability to manage the party. His inability to know when to talk and when not to talk is a serious defect on his person.

“Famodun shouldn’t forget, or because of his inadequate education, that it is a constitutionally guaranteed right to express opinion and associate with anybody.

“It is not surprising that because of his inglorious need to please his paymaster, Famodun decided to act and talk irresponsibly about the former governor. Even though Aregbesola has left the government, Famodun lacks the integrity and morality to make an enemy of him.

“The National Caretaker and Extra-Ordinary Committee and the Senator Abdullahi Adamu led reconciliation committee should take judicious note of this particular reaction of Famodun.

“We have said it before that the man is incapable and not competent to be a party chairman, because he lacks the required knowledge and temperament to resolve the crisis, which is the main thing in party management. If Famodun believes in resolution, he wouldn’t have reacted like that. It was unreasonable and irresponsible.”

Agboola further said that the APC crisis in Osun degenerated because Famodun was unable to administer the APC for seven years.

He also accused him of reaping from the crisis, saying that’s the reason he does not want it to end.
