PDP recommends Oyetola’s sack over poor performance as minister

By Monsurudeen Olowoopejo

Amid one-year anniversary of the President Bola Tinubu’s administration, the Osun Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has recommended that the president relieve the Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, Gboyega Oyetola, of his position, over alleged inability to implement the Renewed Hope Agenda in the sector through the ministry

The party said that Oyetola, who is the immediate past governor of the state, does not have required administrative capacity to lead the ministry which resulted in the lingering challenges in the sector.

PDP, meanwhile, apologized to Nigerians over Oyetola’s performance considering that he represents the state on President Bola Tinubu’s cabinet.

The party’s chairman, Sunday Bisi, in a statement released on Saturday and made available to newsmen, stated that the former governor’s performance does not represent the status of indigenes of the state who have been appointed as ministers before.

“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been advised to safe the immediate past governor of Osun state, Mr. Gboyega Oyetola from unrelenting national embarrassment by relieving him as Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, labelling him a wasted nominee and a very bad signpost for the president’s administration.

“Mr Gboyega Oyetola has been a subject of consistent poor ratings amongst the Ministers working with president Tinubu thereby attracting anger of the citizenry against the judgement of Mr President to appoint him despite his bad record while in office as the Governor of Osun state”

Bisi described the seeming verdict of incompetence hammered on Oyetola as a succinct vindication of electorates in Osun, who overwhelmingly rejected him at the last governorship election in the state.

“The poor ratings of Mr Oyetola as a Minister from Nigerians comes at no surprise to us as a party and Osun people in general. During his tenure as Osun Governor, he displayed his lack of leadership acumen much to the disdain of Osun people. His penchant for shying away from responsibility is legendary.

“Oyetola streams of disgrace got to a head when he was named as principal among the five worst Ministers with no record of performance since assumption of office after blackmailing other Apc leaders to claim the ministerial slot.

“The commentaries and assessment of Minister Oyetola’s performance is reminiscent of his better forgotten and uninspiring performance as the Governor of Osun.

“He has successfully exported his lack of administrative prowess to the entire country. The public outcry calling on President Tinubu to expunge him out of the federal cabinet, barely eight months in office, has vindicated the people of Osun state who voted him out of office.

“It is sad that Mr Oyetola is disgracing himself at the National level with his abysmal performance as a Minister of the federal republic, his cluelessness is fast becoming an identity. Osun is known for sending out the best performers until Mr Oyetola fought tooth and nail to hijack the Ministerial slot reserved for the state. Check the list of past Ministers from Osun, Oyetola is just a sorry exception from the list of those wonderful performers”.

“What is more worrysome is that Nigerians predicted this outcome, stressing that his inclusion in the cabinet is more about his personal relationship to the President than his credential as a public officer. He has shown to his most optimistic supporters that he is not only clueless about the knowledge of the Ministry he is meant to lead, he also lack the required administrative capacity or the mental stamina to direct the affairs of the Ministry.”
