APC, AD trade words over candidates’ credibility
The All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Alliance for Democracy (AD) have engaged one another on whom among their candidates is more credible.
While the APC dismissed the liberal ideology’s claim of the AD’s candidate, Olusola Oke as deceitful, the AD accused the APC of hypocrisy.
The Chairman, Akeredolu Campaign Platform, Mr. Ade Adetimehin, said in Akure yesterday, that Oke remained a member of the PDP.
According to him, having served in the PDP for 16 years, Oke’s priority if he wins the election, would be the reorganisation of the party in the southwest.
He urged the people not to be deceived by his antics, adding that his desperation to win the election made him to defect from the PDP to the APC and later, to the AD.
Adetimehin said: “Our people have had enough of the PDP’s misrule and were waiting for the APC to take over the state.
“Oke was a former board member of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Chairman of the Ondo State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission, as well as the National Legal Adviser of the PDP.”
But the Chairman, Media and Publicity of Olusola Oke’s Campaign Organisation, Mr. Kola Olabisi, said the APC was full of hypocrites, who were not real democrats, but deceitful.
He explained: “When Oke was with them some months ago, he supported in building the APC and was accepted as a progressive. But after he was rigged out, they are suddenly crying wolf because they are afraid of their imminent defeat.”
Olabisi accused the APC in the state of believing more in propaganda and rigging, than in campaigning to win the election.
He added that the voters would decide who among the candidates was more popular to win the governorship election.
