The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has declared that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its leadership will continue to suffer defeat and disgrace in the state for as long as it continues to propagate deceit and lies about goings-on in the state of the virtuous.
The APC was reacting to the statement of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the media on Thursday, 4th September, 2014, denying the falsehood that the PDP fed to the media about INEC staff allegedly suspended for “helping APC to rig” elections in Obokun and Osogbo local governments.
The Director of Publicity, Strategy and Research for APC in Osun State, Barr. Kunle Oyatomi, in a statement made available to the media in Osogbo on Thursday, 4th September, 2014, said that “the PDP has again suffered the shame of being exposed as habitual liars in their mean attitude to political engagement in the State of Osun.”
According to the APC chief, “PDP’s obsession to weave a structure of lies to support its baseless case at the Tribunal has led the opposition party to be clutching at straws and fabricating stories to give a semblance of validity to the tissue of lies that are behind its bogus case against Omisore’s defeat at the August 9 gubernatorial election.
“Cases at election tribunals,” the APC said,
“can only stand on the bases of fact and credible figures, not on fabrication and lies that have become the habit of the PDP.
“That the current lie of the PDP against the APC and INEC has been exposed is ominous precursor to the imminent defeat of the party again at the Election Petition Tribunal”.
The APC therefore called on the people of Osun state never again to believe whatever the PDP says because, according to the party, “the PDP is virtually incapable of telling the truth and therefore is untrustworthy”.
