Osun PDP accuses APC of fueling plot against its standard-bearer
Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of fueling the plot against its standard-bearer, Senator Ademola Adeleke. Its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Diran Odeyemi, said this in a statement yesterday in Osogbo, the state capital.He urged members to be wary of the spoiler game being sponsored by the APC, especially the court cases against Adeleke.
According to him, the APC was scared of what a united PDP could achieve in the September 22 poll, hence it is using its members to unsettle its standard-bearer.Two members of the party had taken Adeleke to court, demanding that he presents his WAEC certificate.Odeyemi however said intelligence report at the party’s disposal had linked the APC to the case.
He implored the APC to stop meddling in PDP affairs and face what is left of its disintegrated structure.He described the action as a distraction, and asked its members not to fall for the antics of APC, but work towards ensuring victory for the party.
But the APC has denied any meddling in the PDP affairs, and urged the party to face its internal problem.Odeyemi insisted: “We can’t afford to miss this opportunity to wrestle Osun State from the grip of the failing APC. We have it on good authority that the APC has been going about looking for willing hands within our fold to use against us.
“I urge our members to reject any offer from APC against the collective good of our party. We have established a nexus between the case against our candidate and APC in the state, and we are working hard to block all the openings.
