The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State has described the reported intention of the main opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to take over the governorship of the State come 2023 as “daydreaming, infantile fancy and political grandstanding devoid of practical reality”
The APC in a statement in Abeokuta on Friday and signed by its Publicity Secretary, Tunde Oladunjoye, described the reported reconciliation of factions in the PDP as “a charade meant for photo-ops, camera lights and cheap publicity and also as a belated cry when the head was already off.”
He added :“Let me assure you that APC and Governor Dapo Abiodun will not be dragged into the 2003 electioneering yet. This is a government that will just be two years in office next month. We want our work to speak for us while the opposition continues to daydream and engage in shadow-boxing.”
The party, however, described as “very unfortunate”, a statement credited to the factional Chairman of the PDP that the Dapo Abiodun Administration is “providing road and water where they were not needed”
“It is very unfortunate, laughable and an indication that PDP is still in stupor.
“We recognized PDP’s unwitting acknowledgment of the truth that our government is providing roads and water among many other amenities being delivered by Prince Dapo Abiodun to improve the standard of living of the good people of Ogun State, we challenge the factional Chairman to mention just one place in Ogun State that the Dapo Abiodun-led government has provided roads and water where they were not needed?
“We believe that comment came out of vague reasoning and bellyaching; and it confirmed that the PDP has totally lost touch with the needs of Ogun people,” the statement added.
