Relocation Directive: APC plans mayhem in Osun – PDP

Olisa Metuh, PDP National Publicity secretary

The PDP says the APC seeks to import armed thugs to disrupt polls.

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has described the directive by the All Progressives Congress, APC, to its officials across the country to relocate to and remain in Osun state until after the August 9 election as a brazen assault on democracy tailored to intimidate the electorate and prevent them from freely voting the candidate of their choice.

The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, in a statement on Monday said “the directive is in furtherance of APC’s two-pronged plot to move in billions of naira to induce voters as well as smuggle in thousands of armed thugs from other APC states to cause mayhem and disrupt the process in the face of defeat.”

The PDP pointed out that in seeking to import mercenaries from other states, the APC has exposed the fact that it lacked genuine followership in Osun state adding that such explains the reason it has remained distraught by the massive support being enjoyed by the PDP.

“Having realized that the people are now with the PDP, a desperate APC is doing everything to cause confusion, intimidate the people and prevent them from expressing their wishes and aspirations in a free election.

“However, we wish to inform the APC that they will be disgraced as no amount of intimidation and inducement will deter the people of Osun state from pushing through their resolve to end the APC reign of impunity on August 9. Indeed, never in history has good been defeated by evil”, the party said.

The statement also described as laughable, APC’s allegation that the PDP seeks to reap where it did not sow. Noting that Osun remains a core PDP state, the party said “Nigerians are aware that the APC never won election in Osun state but is merely enjoying a mandate stolen from the PDP through the court.”

The PDP called on the people of Osun state to remain calm and vigilant while charging them to resist any attempt by the enemies of their state to subvert their collective will at the polls.

The party also called on Nigerians to note the developments and hold the APC responsible should there be any break down of law and order in Osun State.

    And what followership capacity was GEJ showing when he publically said he has ordered the armed forces to use “maximum force” (as they did in Ekiti)in the same upcoming election? Under GEJ, has election become a military operation.

    • TOTAL HONESTY

      GEJ is simply using the right medication to cure an ailment! Why change a winning formula? If it worked in anambra, edo and ekiti states, why should osun state’s case be different?

  • TrueNja

    APC is desparados. In the first instance, the incumbent never won. The disgraced justice Salami imposed him on Osun people to bring instability into Yoruba land.

  • Godfrey Etokebe

    PDP POSITIVE TRANSFORMATION seedlings are growing as we SPEAK awaiting transplanstation to to the fertile PDP GUBERNATORIAL soil called OMISORE on saturday in OSUN STATE!!!.

  • TRUTH MASTER

    Osun a core PDP state? If only they knew that Oyinlola will declare for the APC tomorrow, Tuesday! I guess that will put things in a context for the PDP. I just read that now!

    Metuh, you are a lawyer. And you know the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria guarantees freedom of movement, association and speech. So how is the directive by the APC for its members to converge on Osun a ”brazen assault on democracy?”

    If you have no answer to the statement by the APC, you may as well keep quiet!!!

    • Godfrey Etokebe

      How is provision of ADEQUATE SECURITY an ASSAULT ON DEMOCRACY? as postulated by APC

    • TOTAL HONESTY

      So our constitution also guarantees movements of terrorists and miscreants, so they should be allowed to continue to inflict pains on society? Have we ever had a case where a party relocated its national office to a state’s capital and directed all its members to move to the state and camp for an election throughout our national history? Is this not a ploy to clash with our security agents and kill innocent Osun citizens?

    • redeem

  • Oluronbi

    APC is toast. The APC is already mourning its loss on August 9. APC is a drowned political party. Its dead body if and when retrieved would be cremated.

  • Dankasa

    • redeem

      WHY IS APC CALLING ON THEIR MEMBERS TO INVADE OSUN STATE–WHY

      • Omo Akin

        Why were the President, VP, Govs etc elected on PDP platform in Osun to campaign for PDP candidate? So the President and PDP Govs can invade Osun State but not so for Govs of APC.
        President has serially misuse State Institutions for illegal purposes like preventing the free movement of people as happened to Amaechi in Ekiti. This is the basic reason the citizenry have no respect for these Institutions. Ask the citizenry what they feel about the police or the army.
