Osun Election: PDP Hails Jonathan Over Peaceful Poll

Olisa Metuh, Spokesman, PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has described the Osun state governorship election as “a clear testimony to President Goodluck Jonathan’s unparalleled commitment to peaceful elections in Nigeria.”

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh in a statement on Sunday hailed the president for “creating the enabling environment for Osun people to freely and peacefully exercise their franchise without rancour or blood-letting”.

The PDP also commended the security forces for their display of professionalism in keeping the peace throughout the exercise despite provocations by desperate politicians.

It however called on the opposition to learn from the election and desist from actions and utterances that overheat the system and create room for violence.

“The lesson from this election is that the opposition party should stop crying wolf where there is none. They must desist from actions and statements that cause confusion and create unnecessary tension, capable of igniting violence and blood-letting in elections”, the party said.

Calling on its members and supporters to remain calm, the PDP also commended the people of Osun for adhering to rules and conducting themselves in an orderly manner during the election.

  • True Nigerian

    Shameless spokesman of a shameless ruling party speaking to shameless and unconcious citizenry who are happy to be engaged and ruled by lying, conscienceless and thieving political class.

    Olisa, the wind was taken from the sail of your argument when you and your hypocritical commander-in-Chief decided to unleash military brutality in order to intimidate voters and intimidate your opponents. On that note, your attempt to credit deceitful lying yourselves with the outcome in Osun is a mission impossible and a labour in futility. Just in case, you needed to hear it from one of the citizens you pretend to be speaking to, here is the truth: Aregbesola and his party won, not because of what you did, but inspite and despite of what you did. So hide your head in shame! One day, you will be no more, and one day, PDP will be no more in power. Time is the only thing that changes everything while remaining unchanged. Great kings, emperors, deadly dictators have all come and gone on this earth. They are not here anymore. Well just look at your own position. It was still like yesterday when Amadu Ali, Kawu Baraje and Okwy Nwodo etc were stridently doing the dirty stinking job that you are doing against Nigeria’s future. Where are they today?

    I once saw one of their kids in London, and I made him feel how hated his father’s role is. At most you will live another 30 years. So is this the democracy and the society you want your children to live in? Is this the kind of army that you want to see guarding the country of your children? Is this the level of merit and national cohesion you want your children to call home?

    The trouble with people like you is that they often have very shallow minds, so the questions I have asked you above rarely occur to them. And that is why you will all end as mediocres. Many years after you are gone, we the younger ones who are angry enough about the state of Nigeria will take over. And we will wipe out your ugly legacies and your children will not even be proud to remind people of who they are.

    You are here asking the opposition to desist from making comments that will heat up the polity and possibly cause violence. Yet, when you arrived at the scene of carnage in Nyanya in April and May 2014, all you could muster with your dirty and dark conscience was a horrible false allegation that the opposition were responsible for the attacks. A claim that has no shred of evidence to back it up, even as we know that the only senator ever indicted in relation is and remains a PDP senator.Shameless hypocrite!

    I am neither APC nor PDP. But I detest the idea that my country is in the hands of people like you. And I cannot wait for justice to come to the country.

    Nigeria doesn’t have true soldiers anymore. Looking at what has transpired from 1999 to date, it is easy to tell that Nigeria no longer has soldiers with character, discipline and undying patriotism. And the fecklessness of our army in the face of boko haram has just validated that point that Nigeria doesn’t have strong soldiers anymore. Because if we still had soldiers that have character and discipline, they would be so gutted about the likes of you to a point where they would have seized the government by now. If we had a standard army today with patriotic officers, they would be thinking of wresting power from you conscienceless rascally bunch, after which they will march all of you into the prison and then use one year to restore sanity to this country.

    Abiola, Gani Fawehinmi, Agbakoba, Enahoro, Ubani, all sacrificed their personal freedoms and their lives to give us a working democracy, only to end up seeing animals like you running the country down and destroying democracy – the very thing that gave you the privileges that you now have. You ought to be ashamed of yourself, Olisa. You ought to feel mortfied that you are unable to uphold even 1% of what you are admonishing APC to do.

    Like I said, I am not particularly enamoured by the idea of a partisan leaning to APC. But across all party divides, characters and low consciences like yours should stay away from Nigeria’s struggles.

    Now, pleas go get yourself a life! Politics is not a profession! but can you? No you can’t. People who are accustomed to feeding off public funds can’t stand the idea of a normal job.
