The Peoples Democratic Party in Ondo State, says the State broadcast by Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu on Thursday to the people of the State, is a confirmation that his party, the APC, has failed Nigerians.
The PDP State Publicity Secretary, Kennedy Ikantu Peretei, stated in a statement on Thursday, in reaction to the Governor’s broadcast which was televized on the State media outfits.
The statement is reproduced below:
This morning (Thursday), Ondo State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN, delivered an address that fell far below the expectations of Ondo state residents.
The Governor laid the blames of the present sufferings and agonies of the people, squarely on the feet of his party, All Progressives Congress, (APC). How he turned round almost immediately, to plead for the same party that
“drew a dagger on the heart of the people”, is the biggest surprise.
Mr. Akeredolu, a Governor elected on the platform of APC, vilified President Muhammadu Buhari for policies designed to precipitate national crisis, and the failure of their party, and by implication the failure of their presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. Akeredolu joins the league of APC Governors and Ministers that have openly declared that, the Buhari APC government has achieved nothing in 8years.
The empty broadcast, full of lamentations failed in his attempt to dissociate APC candidates from the present gloom into which APC has sunk Nigeria.
From the confessions of APC key players, it is clear that, a vote for any APC candidate in the forthcoming elections is a continuation of the present situation.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Ondo State Chapter wishes to urge our people to disregard the address as it did not provide the slightest of succour like some other States are doing, but merely added salt to injury.
The affliction called APC shall not rise again in our land. The final burial rites will be performed in the next two days.
