Ekiti PDP is idle, frustrated; says APC

By Joseph Treasure.

The All Progressives Congress, (APC) in Ekiti state has stated that its opposition,the People’s Democratic Party, (PDP) is idle and frustrated and has resorted to empty threats and incitement as its weapon.

It however warned that the law was there to tame and deal with any form of unlawful acts by any person no matter how highly placed.

Reacting to a statement by the state PDP where it threatened that it would allow its members to defend themselves, the ruling party in the state said PDP had already taken laws into its hand by sponsoring the latest violence in the state which resulted in the arraignment of some PDP leaders.

The party’s statement signed and released by its Public Relations Officer in Ado Ekiti on Wednesday also reminded PDP members in the state, of the woes inflicted on people of the state by the immediate past administration which led the state to a debtor statusd.

“With the arrest and arraignment of some PDP members by the police in connection with massive destruction and looting of warehouses in the state last week, faces of those behind the recent terror unleashed on the hapless Ekiti citizens are being unveiled by security agents.

“The APC is now calling on security agents in the state not to treat with kid glove, the threat by the PDP that its members will take the law into their hands by resorting to defend themselves against any further attacks.

“Isn’t it shameful that a party that produced an administration that couldn’t account for billions of Naira meant for budget support, bailouts and other funds it received is now turning around to accuse a prudent government, that carries along the people in its day to day activities, of misappropriation?

“Let them tell Ekiti people where they hid those monies.

“Their false and un substantiated assertion that palliatives are stored in Government house is a ploy to incite the people to attack the seat of government.

“They are not happy with the serene peace being enjoyed by the people of the state and want to create confusion. Their members have been identified to be the brains behind series of lootings and burning that engulfed the state capital last week and those arrested are being prosecuted by the security agents.

“PDP members and those who are bent on causing more confusion in the state should shelve their devilish plan or else they face dire consequences as security agents are more at alert to deal with trouble makers.”

The party advised the peace loving people of the state to go about their lawful daily duties without any fear or intimidation.
