Lagos APC faults PDP’s claim on party’s leader





ALL Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State on Tuesday chided the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Governor Godwin Obaseki for making unfounded allegations against the party and its National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

It slammed the governor and his party for chasing shadows, following their baseless allegations.

Lagos APC Chairman Alhaji Tunde Balogun said in a statement that Obaseki is the architect of his own imminent defeat on Saturday.

He described Tinubu as an icon of democracy, who will always defend the sanctity of the ballot box.

PDP and Obaseki had alleged that the APC and Tinubu were planning to rig the election, adding that the party had sourced N300million from Lagos local councils for the purpose.

Berating PDP and Obaseki for making unfounded allegations, Balogun said: “Overwhelmed by the prospects of grim failure at this weekend’s governorship election in Edo, PDP and its mercenary candidate, Obaseki, have resorted to chasing their own dark shadows.

“The governor is casting false accusation and blame at everybody for his imminent defeat. However, the person he should blame the most is the person to whom he dare not admit the truth, that is himself.

“He has been the chief architect of his own defeat. To conceal this reality, he has dedicated himself to construct an edifice, the foundation of which is made of fiction and the floors of which are the stuff of malice and lies.”

PDP has asked Asiwaju Tinubu to leave Governor Obaseki alone.

In a statement yesterday by spokesman Kola Ologbondiyan, the party said Asiwaju Tinubu cannot dictate to Edo people who to choose as their governor in Saturday’s election.

The statement said: “It is indeed pathetic and derisory that Asiwaju Tinubu is claiming to be the leader of all democrats in Nigeria, which obviously he is not, while at the same time violating the fundamental of democracy, which is allowing a people to freely choose their leaders without confrontation with lies, coercion, mudslinging, slanders and beguiling as exhibited in his amateur video.”
