The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ondo state chapter has blasted the National Leader of APC and former Governor of Lagos state, Bola Tinubu, over his comment on the Party when he was commissioning the Revenue House built in three and a half years of Akeredolu, APC led government in the state.
Tinubu described the PDP as a Dead Party in Ondo state and Nigeria, while urging his APC members at the commissioning ceremony of the New Revenue office of the state to not fight the dead opposition PDP but they should nail its coffin by voting continuity of the Governor Akeredolu in the October 10 election.
But in responding to Tinubu, Kennedy Peretei, Publicity Secretary of the PDP in a Press Statement obtained by Daily Metro News on Sunday said Tinubu’s claim, laughable but can only come from a day dreamer.
The Press Statement in full:
BOLA TINUBU IS A DAY DREAMER.
Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu while Commissioning the sole Project of Rotimi Akeredolu in Akure (Revenue House) said the PDP is dead. This claim is laughable because it can only come out from the mouth of a day dreamer.
The much hyped Flag off of the Akeredolu Campaign was apparently rejected not only by Ondo people but even the forces of nature that brought about torrential rainfall. Ironically, Tinubu and his hired crowd from Osun and Ekiti States symbolically took solace in umbrellas that dotted the entire Campaign ground.
Only last year, the PDP defeated the Buhari led APC roundly at the Presidential elections. The PDP also won two out of the three Senatorial Seats in Ondo State. How can such a party by any stretch of imagination be said to be dead?
It is shameful that the only project Tinubu came to Commission in three and half years is the Revenue House a building that stands as a sign post of multiple taxation of the Ondo State people 10% of which goes directly to the pocket of Akeredolu’s son.
The PDP is offering affordable education and health care delivery as against Aketi engineered astronomical tuition fees that have thrown many of the students in tertiary institutions out of school.
By October 10, Tinubu will know which Party is dead in Ondo State.
