The attention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State has been drawn to the unfortunate celebration of the PDP over the Federal High Court decision on Akoko South West/ Akoko South East Federal Constituency in the forthcoming National Assembly election.
Alex Kalejaye, Publicity Secretary of Ondo APC in a statement on Tuesday berated the PDP for planning to reap where it did not sow.
The statement further read:
“What readily comes to mind is that the opposition party earnestly crave an easy ride to an unmerited electoral fortune in the federal constituency during the election, without labour. What a pity.
“Ondo APC wishes to remind the struggling opposing PDP that APC logo will be on the ballot paper, and that is an indication that the ruling party is still actively in the race to National Assembly in Akoko South West/South East Constituency.
“May we further remind the political dreamers that the APC is a party to beat in the Akoko land, on account of physical development by our government, and intimidating political structures in the area.
“For those who deliberately refused to monitor events, the APC had since rejected the judgement, directed it’s lawyers to file stay of execution, and challenge the judgement at the Appeal Court.
“A fact that is not contestable, however, is that the APC is far ahead of other parties in Akoko in particular, and entire state in general.
“Whoever emerges representative of the Akoko South West/ Akoko South East Federal Constituency come Saturday 25th, will be determined by the informed residents of the two local government areas, and not the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
“We perceive that the only incontestable fact, however, is that the APC is several poles ahead of other political parties, in any part of the state, in all indications, and highly favored to enjoy the mandate of the people.
“We therefore urge our party members to ignore all forms of distractions and concentrate on winning more souls for the party in the federal constituency, and prepare to relish the ultimate victory.”
