The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has said the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Adamu’s resort to incitement ahead of the Osun State Governorship election is a waste of time.
The PDP said Adamu’s charge to the APC Campaign Council cannot save the incumbent Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola from defeat in the July 16 governorship election.
While inaugurating the Council for the Osun State Governorship election, the National Chairman of the APC had directed members of the council to go back to the trenches and do everything possible within the law to win.
But the PDP in its response said the charge “cannot save the colourless, rejected and sinking Governor Gboyega Oyetola, from inevitable defeat in the July 16, 2022 poll.”
Debo Ologunagba, National Publicity Secretary of PDP, in a statement said Adamu’s comments are “reckless and irresponsible.”
“The National Chairman of the fizzling All Progressives Congress (APC), Sen. Abdullahi Adamu should know that his resort to incitement in the forthcoming Osun State Governorship election cannot save the colourless, rejected and sinking Governor Gboyega Oyetola from inevitable defeat in the July 16, 2022 poll.
“It is pertinent to remind Abdullahi Adamu that election is not warfare! Directing his party members to “go down to the trenches” in the Osun State Governorship election and brazenly asserting zero tolerance for election defeat cannot find accommodation within the ambits of the law.
“Abdullahi Adamu’s comment further confirms that the APC is in mortal fear of Senator Adeleke’s soaring popularity, realizing that Governor Oyetola is no match for Senator Adeleke; a blunt reality for which the APC National Chairman has now become frenetic.
“More provoking is Abdullahi Adamu’s brazen assertion that the APC has no apology for such an irresponsible, reckless and offensive posture against the sensibilities of the people of Osun State,” he said.
