Stop shedding innocent blood, southwest chieftains tell APC
Chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the southwest have cautioned the All Progressives Congress (APC) against violence in the upcoming poll.
They gave the warning in a statement by the Zonal Publicity Secretary of the South-West PDP, Ayo Fadaka.
While stressing that human lives are sacrosanct, he said: “We are worried about the continuing violence that the APC is perpetrating in the state.
“We find it quite unwholesome that blood has been spilled in the state, with the notch moving higher to arson.”
Fadaka lamented: “The family house of the Chief of Staff to Governor Ayodele Fayose, Dipo Anisulowo, was completely burnt by operatives of the APC.
He expressed concern that the callous action was aimed at destroying Anisulowpo’s family legacy.
The PDP also condemned the APC for the uncivilised and immature political approach of its members.
He disclosed that two people died due to the reckless driving of the convoy of APC leaders during their so called “mega rally” in Ekiti.
He, however, said politicians must campaign and strategise to win elections, with decency, clear conscience, rather than displaying outright disrespect for lives and properties.
“We hold firmly that nobody’s ambition is worth the life and property of another. The PDP demands that the APC must play by the rule and comport itself within the fringes of decency and law,” he said.
