S/West PDP: We’re ready for APC’s fed­eral might

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, La­gos

The PDP in the South West said yes­ter­day that the rul­ing APC is plot­ting to win to­mor­row’s gov­er­nor­ship elec­tion in Ek­iti State by de­ploy­ing the ma­chiner­ies of the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment.

Na­tional Vice-Chair­man of the party in the South West Dr. Eddy Olafeso who ad­dressed news­men in La­gos said, “The com­ment from APC lead­er­ship is the fact that they want to use the fed­eral might to hi­jack power rather than us­ing the po­lit­i­cal process.

“PDP is ready and we will con­front what­ever machi­na­tions they put in place and we will say no to what they are at­tempt­ing to do to our peo­ple.

“Ek­iti peo­ple need our sup­port, Ek­iti peo­ple need our un­der­stand­ing to know that they have the in­alien­able right to se­lect who­ever they want to be their gov­er­nor and that the APC gov­ern­ment will not want to do that on the blood of our peo­ple,” Olafeso said.

He said though there was noth­ing wrong with pro­vid­ing se­cu­rity for the elec­tion, it was wor­ri­some that the se­cu­rity de­ployed was to give ad­van­tage to the APC.
