The People’s Democratic Party on Tuesday, tackled Ogun state Governor Dapo Abiodun over the one-million man walk for the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The PDP lashed out at the APC for disrupting businesses in Abeokuta, the state capital, while also condemning Abiodun for staging the rally close to it’s secretariat located around NNPC junction.
PLATFORM TIMES reports that Abiodun led a crowd of supporters rallying for the APC’s flagbearer .
In a statement obtained by PLATFORM TIMES and signed by the PDP Publicity Secretary, Akintoye Bankole, the party condemned the APC for blocking the party’s entrance.
Bankole alleged that the act was aimed at causing chaos, disclosing that it takes the intervention of the party leaders to calm the PDP youths.
Bankole stated that the APC should have converged on the stadium instead of disturbing the peace of the residents in the state.
He said, “Instead of busying himself with needless blockage of main roads on work day thereby shooting down businesses and disrupting free flow of traffic in the metropolis, the governor should pay a priority attention to his ongoing litigations surrounding his eligibility to contest or participate as a candidate in the forthcoming election.
“He needs to absolve himself of a supposed criminal identity of Shawn Micheal. He also needs to prove to the good people of Ogun state who have suffered all manners of needless hardship under the watch of his government about the criminal question of forgery and perjury currently against him.
“The so-called solidarity march for APC and its candidates in Abeokuta metropolis left a sour taste of insensitivity to the plight of the people. It shows rejection as the people have manifestly disassociated themselves from all the misery and agonies APC represents.”
Also in a statement, party’s youth leader, Sunkanmi Oyedeji, charged Abiodun to tender apology to the people of Ogun state.
Oyedeji said, “I had to cancel a very important stakeholders meeting of the youth wing of the party. They completely blocked the entrance to our secretariat. I had to calm down the youths that travelled to Abeokuta for the meeting.
“This is not the Ogun state standard. The governor should tender an apology to the Peoples Democratic Party and the people of Ogun state with immediate effect.
“The fact that buses from Lagos in their large numbers came into the state today just for the rally was an eyesore. The question is who is afraid of who?”
Meanwhile, the APC Publicity Secretary, Tunde Oladunjoye could not be reached for comment as he didn’t answer his calls nor reply to text messages sent to his phone.
