The All Progressives Congress (APC) has slammed the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) for embarking on baseless diversionary and theatrical allegations ahead of the September 19 governorship poll in Edo State
Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, said in a statement on Friday in Abuja that the PDP was intimidated by the quality, depth and political sagacity of the APC Natiknal Csmpaign Council.
According to him, “We understand that the PDP is intimidated by the quality, depth and political sagacity of the APC National Campaign Council deployed by the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee to organise a formidable campaign structure to ensure success of the APC and our candidate; Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu during the election.
“The APC has no interest in rolling in the mud with the PDP and engaging them in their senseless and drunken tirade.
“Edo state is not dubbed the Heartbeat of the Nation for nothing.
“The Edo electorate is sensible, sophisticated and progressive. The focus of the APC is to display to the Edo electorate our pro-people credentials, infrastructure/development track record, social investments, wealth creation initiatives among others which is being replicated across APC states.
“APC is a party that fiercely advocates, practices and defends the principle of “One person, one vote”. Come September 19 every valid vote must count.
“We urge the PDP to concentrate on their deadbeat and empty campaign instead of the comic it has turned itself to.
“Edo is proudly an APC state.”
