Don’t in­ter­fere in Edo gov’ship poll, Makarfi-led PDP tells Buhari

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Saawua Terzungwe

The na­tional care­taker com­mit­tee of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP), led by Sen­a­tor Ahmed Makarfi, has called on Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari not to in­ter­fere with the Septem­ber 10 gov­er­nor­ship elec­tion in Edo State.

In­stead, the com­mit­tee has asked Buhari pro­vide a level play­ing field for all the po­lit­i­cal par­ties par­tic­i­pat­ing in the elec­tion.

A state­ment is­sued by the spokesman of the com­mit­tee, Prince Dayo Adey­eye, yes­ter­day, said that the stage was set for the peo­ple of Edo State to vote for a can­di­date of their choice.

It said that hav­ing tested the ad­min­is­tra­tions of the PDP and All Pro­gres­sives Con­gress (APC), the peo­ple of the state would mas­sively vote for the PDP.

The state­ment said: “We have seen it be­fore, and we are see­ing it again. With the usual empty prom­ises of the APC, they will prom­ise ev­ery­thing to de­ceive the peo­ple and will go 360 de­grees de­nounc­ing all their prom­ises once they grab power.”

It said that the PDP was de­ter­mined to re­deem the peo­ple of the state from the “go-and-die gov­ern­ment of the APC.”

The state­ment said that the APC had no re­gard for the or­di­nary peo­ple and im­posed “heavy tax” without tan­gi­ble projects in the state.
