The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Oyo state chapter has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of being desperate to blackmail the laudable achievements of the state governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde and the ruling party in the state.
The PDP, in a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Engineer Akeem Olatunji, accused the APC of sponsoring all manners of falsehood against the PDP and the Makinde government.
The statement said the falsehood was aimed at belittling the successful clearing of the rot left behind by the APC in Oyo state and the positive turnaround the state has begun to experience since Makinde assumed office.
“We are greatly appalled at the desperation of the APC to publicise all manners of lies and falsehood against our government.
“There is a permissible level of decency in politics and we expect all Omoluabis to follow that cause.
“Rather than wish our state well after the eight years of disastrous rule and bad governance the APC foisted on Oyo state, that party is standing alone as a rotten apple in the basket, seeking to negatively affect others.
“Let us assure the lie merchants in the APC that our party, the PDP stands firm with Governor Seyi Makinde, and the laudable achievements he has recorded in 100 days.
“No member of the PDP is angry with the governor and no one is expressing any such frustration as contained in the lies being marketed by the APC,” the statement said.
The statement indicated that the PDP is solidly behind Governor Makinde on every step all the way, as he continues in his giant strides of laying the foundation for the accelerated development of Oyo state.
“We are making particular reference to a story from the frustrated camps of the APC with the headline “PDP Leaders Dump Oyo Gov. We affirm that this is another of their classic lies, as such write-up is not only laughable but comical.
“It is not only unfounded, frivolous and malicious but also a great lie that stands no reason. Governor Makinde is no longer about Oyo state, he is already a nationally acclaimed deliverer of good dividends of democracy and good governance.
“We therefore, enjoin all members of the public to disregard in totality the distractive publications, falsehood and unbridled lies being peddled against the service-delivering Governor Makinde.”
