The Government of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu has warned the opposition People Democratic Party (PDP) not to drag the All Progressives Party (APC) into the recent fire outbreak which engulfed the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Ondo State.
Governor Akeredolu made the call on Sunday in a statement issued on his behalf by the spokesperson of his Campaign Organisation, Mr Olabode Richard Olatunde.
In the statement, Governor Akeredolu lambasted the PDP leaders for peddling falsehood, twisting the truth and wrongful accusations against APC following the outbreak of the fire incident.
Governor Akeredolu in the statement, further called on the PDP to ensure that their campaign in the State should be issue-based rather than attacking and smearing the image of APC.
The statement issued by Akeredolu reads thus in part; “The Akeredolu/Aiyedatiwa Campaign Organisation (ACO) watched with utmost dismay, loads of falsehood peddled by leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State, during the party’s governorship campaign flag-off in Akure on Saturday.
“While we remained unperturbed about what happened at the PDP scanty rally, we take exception to the unpopular road being taken by the PDP in its lame attempt to seek relevance among the people of the state who have rejected the PDP outrightly.
