Oyo PDP to APC: Bury yourself in shame over 8yrs misrule


Oyo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday
urged the state’s chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to
bury itself in ignominy for turning out a below par performance within
its eight years rule of the state.
The party in a statement by the state’s Publicity Secretary, Engr.
Akeem Olatunji, said that the name of APC in Oyo can conveniently be
replaced with hunger, oppression and deception.
“That the rule of the APC between 2011 and 2019 was lacklustre would
be stating the obvious but the party also signifies deception at its
height,” the statement read, adding that the people of Oyo are trying
hard to erase the sad memories foisted on them by the APC.
“Instead of being sober and coming out to profusely apologise for
their failings, the APC is showcasing a sort of repulsive audacity,
that is only drawing the people to anger.
“We are, however, happy that the government of Engr. Seyi Makinde is
striving hard to cushion the effects of the mindless rule and trying
to heal the emotional and psychological trauma the APC government
plunged the state into in the last eight years,” the PDP said.
The PDP said its statement was in response to the lingering arguments
about the reconstruction works on Iwo Road interchange planned by
Governor Makinde.
Engr. Olatunji also described the APC as sore losers in respect of its
criticisms of Engineer Makinde’s policies and programmes.
The PDP wondered where APC derived its moral standing to cast a word
of aspersion on the excellent performances of governor Makinde who has
been able to achieve within his first 100 days in office what APC
could not achieve for their entire eight years of misrule.
The ruling party specifically enjoined the leader of APC in Oyo state,
former governor Abiola  Ajimobi to come out clean and account for how
he spent Oyo State’s funds during his eight year rule, saying: “We
won’t allow things lie low for too long. In due time this party will
officially file a petition to the EFCC and ICPC with details of how
the APC deliberately plunged Oyo state into a debt of over 150bn with
absolutely nothing to show for it.”
