The campaign organisation of Eyitayo Jegede, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Ondo State has alerted the public to what it described as “sinuster plans being hatched by the ruling APC in Ondo State” to unleash mayhem on itself and blame it on the PDP.
A statement by Gbenga Akinmoyo on behalf of the organisation reads: “The general public has been alerted long before now as to the sinister plans being hatched by the ruling APC in Ondo State to adorn political thugs in PDP branded materials to unleash mayhem on itself and the gathering of other political parties with the sole intention of putting the blame on the PDP.
“The APC, which boasted of militancy, arms and ammunition through one of their party chieftains and unleashed unprovoked mayhem on the PDP a few days ago in a botched assassination attempt on the PDP Governorship candidate, has moved to the next scene of the unfolding drama.
“The information of the arrest of some hoodlums in branded vehicles wearing PDP logo at Ifon in Ose LG, whilst our campaign train is due to make a stop in the town, that is presently circulating on Social Media, is nothing but an attempt by the APC to make good its evil plans.
“While appreciating the security agencies for their vigilance in averting a needless mayhem, we urge the general public to remain focused and not fall for the antics of the ruling APC who are determined to draw us into unproductive arguments that can distract us from those issues that border on the welfare of our people and failure of the APC government in addressing them.”
