APC jittery over imminent defeat in Lagos, Ogun, others – PDP

Olisa Metuh

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has dismissed as frivolous, the All Progressives Congress, APC’s allegation of plots to disrupt the governorship and house of assembly elections in the southwest saying the APC is merely crying wolf for fear of imminent defeat at the polls.

The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, in a response on Thursday said the false alert by the APC is part of its plot to heighten tension in the zone and scare away voters from exercising their franchise having realized that the wind of change blowing in the region will sweep them away on Saturday.

“It is clear to all that the APC has become hysteric over the soaring popularity of the PDP in the southwest states, especially Lagos where the people are determined to vote for the PDP candidate, Mr. Jimi Agbaje who has proven to be better than his APC counterpart.

”This latest false alert is in continuation of APC’s desperation which made it to drag the revered traditional institution to rain death threats on people ostensibly to sway the voters”, the statement said.
The party however said that such antics would not save the APC in the zone as voters in Lagos and other southwest states have already made up their minds in support of the PDP.

It therefore charged its members and supporters in the region, especially in Lagos not to be deterred but completely disregard APC’s gimmicks and come out in large numbers to vote for PDP candidates in the elections.

    Liar, Olisa Metuh. South West had been in opposition camp since the fifties. Now that South West had made the impossible possible you want them to go back into opposition in the States when they formed the center? South West should welcome this development of quitting being opposition in Nigeria and embrace the power of forming Central and States Government as a good omen for development in Nigeria. South East has been known for its entrepreneur ability while South West for its academic and interllectual ability which is good vehicle for development. The outgoing Administration has shown us the other side of the coin where the entrepreneurs run the Government, we should now give it to the academics and interllectures to run to see the outcome

    • share Idea

      Are you suggesting that Buhari’s administration will now be run by south west? More of this revelations please…looooool

      • dareolu1

        what is loooooool…just wait and stop judging abeg, what are you jumping gun for, just be patient..

  • tundemash

    Olisa Metuh the comedian,
    Did you not say same thing before the Presidential elelction? Did you not make a press release during the counting of teh Presidential election votes congratulating Dumbo on “winning” ?
    Keep deceiving your army of hopeless e-rats !

    By the way, why has Dumbo kept silent since his loss? Why isn’t he campaigning for the govs ? Could that be part of the bargain deal with President-elect Buhari while you guys are still out there on your own ?

    • Alamu

      Do not mind Dumbo. A selfish man if ever there was one.

      • dareolu1

        The man’s silence is defeaning, he is intentionally letting PDP drown by not even doing any campaign at all for PDP governosrship candidates, that is wrong, I really wanted APC to be a good and large Opposition party but to my surprise Nigeria is going back to a one party state again and the major casue is still the PDP Leadershp and GEJ, even Muazu is not doing anything again, Fani-Kayode is mute, Abati is silent…so what were this people now talking about for all this years to now keep quiet now, sincerely we still have a long way to go in Nigeria, tomorrow APC will win more states and Nigeria will return to one party dominace again, sincerely I have a lot of problem with that….

PDP, GOODLUCK JONTHAN AND HIS ADMINISTRATION DISPLAYED VERY RECKLESS IMPUNITY, GROSS INCOMPETENCE, VERY MASSIVE AND VERY OBSCENE CORRUPTION, I DO NOT CARE TYPE OF ATTITUDE AND ABOVE ALL LACK OF THE FEAR OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD. THOSE WHO THE GODS WANT TO DESTROY ARE FIRST MADE MAD AND IN THIS CASE VERY MAD. PDP AND GOODLUCK JONATHAN IF YOU STEP BACK AND BEGIN TO IMAGINE THE MAGNITUDE OF YOUR FALL FROM GRACE, OFFICE AND POWER, YOU WILL KNOW IT IS THE GREATEST FALL FROM OFFICE, POWER AND GRACE IN RECORDED HISTORY. NOW ENJOY YOUR SCRAP HEAP OF VERY FAILED EX THIS AND EX THAT.

    • MilitaryPolice01

Are you still smoking that grass

    THE MOST DAFT POLITICIAN IN YORUBALAND IS……

    Immediately after APC registered 100% Muslims with INEC as a political party,
    i wrote here that the effect will be that Oshun State will be the only APC state
    in Yorubaland. I was ridiculed here but i took it all on the chin. I knew i was right.
    By tomorrow, Raufu Aregbesola will become Leader of APC party in Yorubaland.
    The rule of APC in Yorubaland is that the last man standing takes over leadership.
    APC will exist in just one (1) state in all of southern Nigeria, from Calabar to Badagry.
    When the Muslim thieves feeding on state treasury wake up on Sunday they’ll be dazed.
    They’ll then accept that Bola Tinubu is the most daft politician Yorubaland has ever had.

    • Olu

      You must be talking of Igbo land. Yorubas have grown beyond Ethnic, tribal and religion sentiments, one major achievement of free education by western region. Yoruba is a land that make decisions based on competency and integrity (Omoluwabi). This propaganda has failed again and it will continue to fail in Yoruba land. If you have good product, we can import it from you, but this politics of sentiments is bad product you are trying to export to Yoruba Land. We have passed that level.

    • Abiodun Ojo

      The Igbo Christians defend Igboland and Igbo states from any invasion. In Igboland the Igbo Christians talk secession. They talk MASSOB. After that the Igbo Christians come to Yorubaland and Yoruba states, and talk about “one” Nigeria. My question is: why are Igbo Christians this shamelessly duplicitous? Why do the Igbo Christians want to take over Yorubaland? We Yorubas have been too kind. It is hightime we left that sense of civility we are known for and do it the way other Nigerian ethnic groups do it. We Yorubas must stop this nonsense from Igbo Christians in our land and our states.

    PDP SW GOVERNORS – FAILURES WITHOUT A LEGACY

    FEDERAL – OBJ/GEJ PDP FAILED

    OYO STATE – Akala PDP FAILED

    OGUN STATE- Daniel PDP FAILED

    EKITI STATE – Fayose PDP FAILED

    EVERY PDP GOVERNOR HAVE FAILED WITHOUT A SINGLE LEGACY IN YORUBALAND ONLY FOR APC GOVERNOR TO START BUILDING THOSE STATES FROM SCRATCH EACH TIME THEY ARE REELECTED

    MY QUESTION – IS PDP MEANT TO DESTROY WHILE APC IS TO BUILD

    IF THAT IS SO WHY DO WE WANT PDP TO DESTROY LAGOS WITH JIMI AGBAJE ?

    IF YOU DO NOT AGREE PLEASE LIST JUST TWO LEGACY ACHIEVEMENT OF ANY PDP GOVERNOR IN THE SOUTHWEST

    Aregbesola free meal is a legacy applauded by the world bank

    Amosun flyover bridges and road construction is an uncommon legacy

    Ajumobi / Fashola BRT buses & bridges are first of it’s kind in Nigeria, to mention a few. What are PDP legacies in SW

    JIMI AGBAJE SUPPORTERS AM WAITING. ALL FORMER PDP GOVERNORS ARE ALSO FACING CORRUPTION CHARGES ? I REBUKE PDP IN ITS ENTIRETY

  • Preco01

    Olisah Methu is so annoying that sometimes I marvel at his stupidity, a thug i know him to be( ask his child’s teacher) After the disgrace PDP governors brought upon their various states this clown is counting on the mumu tendecies of impoverished Nigerians to voted PDP back to state houses?

  • the_adviser

    As in 2011, Akala and Ladoja will neutralise each other’s votes and Ajimobi will scrape in. Amosun in Ogun will do same.
