PDP seeks free, fair guber poll in Edo
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure a level- playing field for the September 10, 2016 governorship election in Edo State.
The party, in a statement by its spokesman, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, described the commencement of campaign by the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Godwin Obaseki, as a ‘charade and full of old empty promises that have become the trademark of the APC at the federal level and in all the states controlled by the party.’
“Nigerians now know better and the people of Edo State have also tasted the difference between the government of the Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP) and that of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and will decide on Saturday 10th September 2016 who will govern them. We have seen it before and we are seeing it again with the usual empty promises of the APC. They will promise everything to deceive the people and will go 360 degrees denouncing all their promises once they grab power”.
The PDP reiterated the fact that they were on a rescue mission to redeem the people from the ‘go-and-die’ government of the APC that had no “regard for the ordinary people except to impose heavy tax without tangible projects in the state.”
Adeyeye called on the people to protect their permanent voters’ cards (PVCs) and come out en-masse to vote for his party’s candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, at the poll.
