Ondo Election: APC Thugs Still On Rampage, PDP Cries Out
Deji Adebayo, Akure
The Ondo state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has describe the incessant attack by thugs who they said are of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as an act of recklessness and irresponsibility on the part of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
This was contained in a press statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Kennedy Peretei, Monday night in Akure, the state capital and made available to journalist.
Peretei said the recent attack on PDP members and its secretariat at Ifedore LGA under the supervision of the council chairman by APC thugs are becoming unbearable as they said the “unprovoked attacks have capacity to precipitate chaos and anarchy in Ondo State”.
Below is the press statement unedited:
AKEREDOLU SHOULD ALLOW PEACE TO REIGN IN ONDO STATE.
Since the declaration of the Ondo Governorship Election Results, All Progressives Congress (APC) thugs have stepped up their acts of recklessness and irresponsibility by attacking supporters of our party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
A particular case in point was the destruction of PDP Secretariat and Eyitayo Jegede’s Campaign Office in Ijare, Ifedore Local Government Area of the state by APC thugs under the guise of celebrating the victory of Akeredolu.
Mr Alex Oladimeji, Chairman of Ifedore Local Government who is supposed to be the Chief Security Officer of the Council physically led the attack. These unprovoked attacks have capacity to precipitate chaos and anarchy in Ondo State.
Therefore, Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu should try to live up to his constitutional responsibility of protecting lives and properties. It is very unfortunate that, the Governor is feigning ignorance while his party thugs have been on rampage before the Elections. Yet, this reign of terror has not abated even after the elections.
Akeredolu should not set Ondo State on fire.
Kennedy Ikantu Peretei.
Publicity Secretary, PDP, Ondo State.
