The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has described as unfounded the recent allegations by the Lagos State chapter of the PDP that the appointment of Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu as chairman of the Edo Election Council is a ploy to divert the state’s fund into funding Akeredolu s election bid.
Responding, the APC Spokesman, Hon Seye Oladejo describes the allegation as “nauseating and an occasional vituperation of the opposition PDP”
“This characteristic wild and reckless allegation has shown the consistency of the warped state of mind of a frustrated opposition party that is determined to sell falsehood to the people
The false and unfounded allegation of the intention to divert resources of Lagos State is at best an admission of what obtains in the PDP whenever there’s an election.” he said.
Continuing, Oladejo said” Nigerians haven’t forgotten the Dasuki-gate which provided a looting spree in the name of elections.
It’s also an open secret that the PDP has remained in permanent opposition in Lagos State because its leadership is gifted in looting election funds.
It is important to put it on record that the well thought choice of the Lagos State Governor to lead the election campaign was based on his well acknowledged remarkable performance in office despite the prevailing unusual challenge. He’s also known as a great manager of human and material resources”.
“It’s laughable that you described Mr Governor as lacking political experience after successfully and effortlessly retiring
your serial governorship candidate.
However, the bad news is that the discerning general public find your bazaar like governorship primaries in Ondo and Edo states distasteful and have resolved to react accordingly with their votes
The release which can be regarded as crying wolves where there’s none can at best be described as prophetic of PDP’s imminent defeat in the coming elections.
The disintegration of the PDP house of cards in Ondo State after the governorship primaries
and the desperation of your Edo state candidate which led to the demolition of the state house of assembly are incontrovertible pointers” the APC added.
