The Oyo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party said on Sunday that the State’s chapter of the All Progressives Congress should bury itself in ignominy for turning out a below par performance in its eight year rule of the Pacesetter State.
The party in a statement by the State’s Publicity Secretary, Engr. Akeem Olatunji, said the name of APC in Oyo State 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 State are trying hard to erase the sad memories foisted on them by the APC.
It said: “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 Engineer Seyi Makinde is striving hard to memory everyone is cushion the sad effects of the mindless rule of the trying to heal the emotional and psychological trauma the APC government plunged the state into in the last eight years.”
The PDP said its statement was in response to the lingering arguments about the reconstruction works on Iwo Road interchange planned by Governor Makinde.
Olatunji also described the APC as sore losers in respect of its criticisms of Makinde’s policies and programmes.
It said: “The time is near when we will have no other option than to expose all atrocities committed by the APC in Oyo state in the last eight years.
“For now, they should thank their stars that they have in Engineer Seyi Makinde a calm personality who is not vindictive in any way.”
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 N150 billion with absolutely nothing to show for it.
“APC is not a party to be taken seriously by anybody, their accusation of Makinde using Rivers construction prototype in Oyo state is laughable, they need not be reminded that Seyi Makinde is a world class engineer with a global brand, and as far as the masses are satisfied and happy with the PDP administration under governor Makinde, anything APC says is inconsequential, null and void.
“We know that they are intimidated by the growing political reputation of Makinde and that the rising profile has taken their peace and sleep away.
“As a ruling party we have done a thorough home work on how to bring lasting solution to the many APC-imposed sufferings on the people; that is why it was action from day one because we are focused and committed to right all the wrongs meted out to the good people of Oyo in the past eight years of the APC.
“The PDP, however, wishes to enjoin the good people of Oyo State to continue to give their full support to Governor Seyi Makinde in his quest to achieve his economic plan and developmental plans.”

NDDC: Buhari given more reasons to sack Akpabio, others

Published

By

A group, Niger Delta Renaissance Coalition, has given President Muhammadu Buhari more reasons to sack the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio.

The group also wants all members of the Interim Management Committee, IMC, of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, sacked.

The group pointed out that President Buhari had already admitted to wrongdoing by the IMC, adding that this should be enough reason for him to act fast.

Recall that when Buhari was asked what he thought of the ongoing revelations of corruption at the EFCC and the NDDC, the President said that some of his appointees have abused trust by misusing their offices.

The group wondered why the President, after such admission, was yet to act, adding that his delay emboldens Akpabio, and the IMC to continue the pillage of the Commission.

This was contained in a statement by Comrade Godknows Sotonye, National Coordinator of the group.

It also pointed to the National Assembly report on the misuse of N81.5 billion in just a few months by the IMC and under the watchful eyes of Akpabio, insisting that the financial recklessness had continued.

“The Acting MD Prof Keme Pondei and his IMC colleagues should not remain in office a day longer,” the group said.

“We cannot afford delayed action by the president, which gives these officials that have abused public trust such as Akpabio and the IMC more time to commit further infractions, when there are already established cases of fraud, corruption, self-enrichment, financial recklessness, abuse of due process and mismanagement against them.

“Mr President should also take note that Akpabio fraudulently procured certificates of no-objection from the Bureau of Public Procurement (BPP) for the award of two contracts, the first for a lead forensic consultant at N318 million, and the second for the purchase of 62 cars for N1.599 billion.

“The President should match his words with action and visit the 116-page report and resolutions of the Senate on the financial recklessness of the NDDC IMC, which was adopted unanimously. The report details the humongous scam that has been going on at the NDDC, and presents a clear pathway forward for the Commission,” the statement read in part.

The APC said that it is the only party campaigning on its documented manifesto because of it sole strategy to win the election is by winning the hearts and goodwill of the people through well-thought-out programs and policies that will bring relief and erase the failures of the past four years.

“Despite spending four years in office, Obaseki has neither achievements nor plans to show,” the statement added.

“He is campaigning largely on empty rhetorics, revisionism, and shameful blackmail and propaganda.

“Election may be weeks away but the truth has finally dawned on Obaseki. He is on his way to a sound, comprehensive defeat so like all failures, he is already preparing the grounds for his defeat with false, ridiculous accusations.
