The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that lying is a trademark of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from top to bottom.
The party was reacting to a statement credited to the PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh that, “while its candidate and members had been campaigning the support of the people, the APC had been engaging in political gallivanting, rigmarole and ineffective propaganda”.
According to a statement by the Osun APC’s Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Barrister Kunle Oyatomi, “the statement credited to Metuh was not different from the low-level intelligence of the Osun PDP executives the APC contended because, according to the party, that Olisa Metuh is unaware of the unprecedented crowds that grace APC rallies shows the abysmal level of ignorance at the apex of PDP hierarchy, or the sorry state of denial or both in which the PDP wallows. “Olisa Metuh is as much a liar as Omisore,” the APC declared.
“Metuh is not worth his status as an information practitioner if all that he knew of what is going on in Osun is the garbage that he is fed with by his discredited PDP leadership in Osun. “We had thought that he was a professional.
“Another side to this nonsense from Olisa Metuh is a possible attempt to create an excuse to rig the election by making people believe that the PDP is “campaigning hard” while the APC is supposedly “gallivanting.”
“We know that PDP is a “nest of killers” as described by Nobel Laureate Professor Wole Soyinka, and those who are inhuman enough to be
“killers” would not see anything wrong in telling ignoble lies like the one Metuh has told. So Metuh can run his mouth as dishonorably as he could.
“But fact is, Osun people have never seen crowds since the creation of the state, and a massive public demonstration of support for an individual as APC governorship candidate, Rauf Aregbesola, has attracted all over the state.
“Olisa Metuh may wish to ask for a video coverage of all Aregbesola’s campaign rallies and those of Omisore since the campaign started. If his ability for rational and intelligent comparison is still functional, he probably would like to withdraw his statement because against those evidence it would take a stupid fellow and a criminal to say what he was reported to have said.
“And for the avoidance of doubt APC likes to draw public attention to the fact that PDP is only preparing people’s mind for a pre-determined result which the party is fully aware will be false, unpopular and most likely to create chaos.
“Where the PDP is leading Nigeria is very clear; it is into the dumps of a failed state. It is now absolutely clear that a plan is already perfected to rig in Osun election.
“But the PDP will be stunned by the determination of the people of Osun to choose their leaders themselves, the PDP’s evil plan will fail,” the APC concluded.
