The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Osun State in 9th August, 2014, Senator Iyiola Omisore, has revealed that the federal government plans to flood Osun with Hausa soldiers one week before the August 9th election in a decisive show of force to secure PDP victory.
The PDP aspirant was recorded on tape threatening to deal with the leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders in their homes in a bid to paralyze the party operatives and take control of the electoral process to earn fake victory at the polls.
But to divert public attention from its evil plot, the PDP has rushed to the media shortly after Omisore’s outrageous revelation during a rally at Ifetedo in Ife South Local Government to accuse the APC of being behind terrorism and violence in the state in the run-up to the election.
Besides, the PDP has added the allegation of gun-running against APC fingering the political support group named “State Boys” as those causing mayhem in Osun at a press parley in Osogbo on Thursday, 10th July, 2014.
The rival APC has thus described that “PDP is Nigeria’s number one enemy and their brutality against their perceived political opponents who are fellow Nigerians has become a national calamity. That calamity is what the PDP has brought into Osun, which has been universally acknowledged as peaceful since 2010.
“It was when they started to set up in Osun for the August 9 election that the peaceful atmosphere in the State became disturbed.
“The current allegation against APC by the PDP is an attempt to take the wind off the sails of the dangerous revelation by Omisore that Hausa soldiers are being prepared to storm Osun a week before the election to brutalize leaders of APC, cow the electorate and manipulate INEC to rig victory for the PDP.
The APC challenged the PDP to produce credible evidence on gun-running or terrorism against its leaders.
“Nigerians should be alerted that the Jonathan presidency could well be the harbinger of the worst crisis Nigeria has ever had if its satanic desperation to destabilize the southwest goes ahead in Osun as Omisore has revealed.
“The APC will like to make it abundantly clear to the PDP that Osun cannot be taken by violence. The consequences will be too devastating to contemplate.
“Let democracy prevail. To Import soldiers from Hausa land to cow Yoruba people in Osun will backfire catastrophically. Let Nigerians of goodwill and the international committee prevail on the PDP, for it is treading a very dangerous and catastrophic path,” the party said through a statement its state Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Barrister Kunle Oyatomi.
