The ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has challenged Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole to own up and admit that he did went on his knees to beg for a ticket to contest the governorship election in Edo State instead of allowing his lieutenants who know nothing about the matter to continue to lie to Nigerians.
Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Olisa Metuh made the allegation based on statement credited to the governor that PDP is a party made up of rouges.
“We view this step as necessary in the background of porous and laughable defence posted by both the ACN and low cadre assistants to Governor Oshiomhole. This challenge is direct to the Comrade Governor. Let him prove wrong, well documented overtures he made to join the PDP, a party he lately labelled “party of rogues.” A word from the horse’s mouth will either settle this matter or further provide an avenue into the wicked lie that several leaders of the opposition live in our dear nation”, he said a statement.
Commenting on the just concluded Local Government elections in Edo State, he said the ACN is pulling down every effort aimed at enthroning credible election in Nigeria.
“Our main worry is that the ACN is committed to pulling down every effort in the direction of credible election”, he said, stressing that the conduct of local government elections in states under opposition ACN is a big throw back, adding that the will of the people in the Edo local elections was shamelessly subverted.
He said it is foggy logic for the ACN to state that the PDP could not have won a seat at the controversial Edo Local government election. “What a fudgy logic the ACN is engaged in? What a way to explain out; justify the heist that characterized the recent local government elections in the state! That because Governor Oshiomhole won the state governorship election, the ACN must win all the seats in a local election determined majorly by the weight and popularity of the individual grassroots contenders”, he said.
“On a scale of fairness therefore, the PDP still has the capacity to match or out match the ACN in local elections. For it to shamelessly justify hence, the massive rigging of the Edo local government elections with this sheer lack of critical thinking, is verily laughable,” he said.
