- APC urges electorates to avoid PDP returning to power to destroy all the good works of Aregbesola
- The party also accused the PDP of instigating the people against Aregbesola's government
- Famoodun, chairman Osun state chapter of the APC, said the party had confidence in Osun people to reject PDP
The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has called the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) the most destructive of opposition parties.
According to a statement by the chairman of the Osun state chapter of the APC Gboyega Famoodun, the PDP had reportedly been setting off the people against the administration of Governor Rauf Aregbesola.
The party also urged voters in Osun who have seen the good works of Aregbesola in the last 8 years to help the ruling party retain its power when the governor leaves later this year.
The statement read: “Regardless of the fact that Osun is one of the least resourced states in the Nigerian federation, it has demonstrated perhaps the most innovative capabilities in effecting the changes and development necessary for economic growth in unprecedented circumstances.
“We have seen one of the most destructive opposition yet in Osun over the last seven years and the most evil campaign is in the making to lay to waste all that the Aregbesola-led APC government has done since 2010.
“But you, the people of Osun, have seen it all; you have experienced the difference between light and darkness, evil and good and you are in the best position to make a choice.
“In 2014, amid a vicious PDP campaign, which drew blood and tears from the people, Osun stood firm behind the good, and they threw evil into the garbage heap. Yet, for the second time in four years, the good people of Osun will again be required to decide whether they will reject the evil as they did in 2014. That momentous year starts this January.
“This year, they will be setting up a battle royale in the unlikely event of attempting to capture Osun and avenge the 2007 and 2014 electoral defeats. And like wounded lions, they will ravage the state by discontinuing every policy of the APC (God forbid) that had brought joy to the people of Osun.
“Let it be stated in very clear terms; the APC has confidence and trust in the people of Osun that they will vote to continue with the progress so far made by Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola. That means they will decide to retain APC in power.”
NAIJ.com had reported that the Governor Aregbesola said that no other state in Nigeria can compete with his in terms of infrastructural developments in public schools.
Aregbesola said the state has done all it takes to ensure that its primary and secondary schools measure up to expectations.
Speaking during an NTA network programme, 'Good Morning Nigeria', the governor said the provision of free meals to pupils in all government-owned primary schools in Osun state is exceptional.
