The All Progressives Congress, APC, has said the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, are having insomnia over the achievement of Kwara State Governor, North Central Nigeria, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.
Gatekeepers News reports that this was contained in a statement signed by the State APC Publicity Secretary, Tajudeen Folaranmi Aro.
The PDP had earlier claimed that some chieftains of the APC visited the party’s Governorship Candidate, Shuaib Yaman to pledge support.
The APC in a statement denied that its chieftains visited Yaman, asking him to publish thier pictures.
The statement read, “Our attention has been drawn to two puerile statements by the rejected Peoples Democratic Party.
“One of the statements claim that some key members of the administration visited its candidate, Shuaibu Yaman in a bid to join an already drowned party in the state.
“We state that this is another falsehood and usual cheap propaganda by a party Kwara has rejected because its deceit and endemic corruption during their reigns.
“It is a Known fact that the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, has always publicized the names and photographs of members of the opposition who renounced their party membership to join the APC in the state.
“We challenge the PDP to give names and photographs of Government appointees who visited their candidate, Shuaibu Yaman , with the aim of joining their hopeless party.
“The second statement accused the APC members of destroying PDP billboards. This is another absolute falsehood and a ploy by men of yesterday to attract sympathy from the people of Kwara They are crying wolf where there is none.
“The administration of Governor AbdulRazaq has no time for such dirty politics as erroneously claimed by the rejected Peoples Democratic Party. His concern is how to ensure the rapid development of the state that every Kwaran will be proud of.
“We restate that the people of Kwara can see through the congenital lies and propaganda of the PDP and have also realized the difference between the evil regime of PDP and the exemplary leadership of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.
“The AbdulRazaq administration is not interested in paying evil for evil of the PDP. The public will recall that the PDP government through the State House of Assembly passed a motion urging the National Broadcasting Commission to stop some political programmes on Private Radio Stations in the state but this motion was ignored by the NBC because the PDP government lacked the power to give the commission directives.
“Kwarans are now free from the oppressive regime of the PDP and have vowed never to return the party to power.
“They can never forget how the wrecked Party dehumanized civil servants and aged retirees at State and Local Governments levels by refusing to pay them salaries, pensions and gratuities for over two years even when the government was receiving huge allocations and bailouts from the Federal Government.
“We know that members of the PDP have been having insomnia with the incredible achievements of the administration of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq in just three years, we assure members of the rejected Party that this ailment will get worse to epileptic seizures or schizophrenia by the end of his second term in office.
“Kwarans can see that despite the huge drop in Federal Allocations, their money is now being used to build infrastructure such as roads, factories Schools and hospitals while Social investment Programmes to take care of the youths and elderly are in place.
“We restate that the people of Kwara have sworn never to experience the humiliation they were subjected to under the PDP government.
“They are not only praying but working to ensure that the corrupt regime of the PDP never returns to power in the State.”
