The Oyo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has congratulated members of the African Democratic Congress, ADC, on the exit of their messiah, former governor Rashidi Ladoja, to Zenith Labour Party (ZLP).
Describing Ladoja as “a cankerworm that has transversed four different parties in the last one year,” the party urged its “members to show understanding with the vituperations of members of the opposition ADC, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Action Democratic Party, ADP, ZLP and other opposition parties as they now have forlorn hope in the 2019 poll.”
A statement by the party’s spokesperson, Dr AbdulAzeez Olatunde, urged the opposition parties to “focus on their impending failure at the polls and campaign their manifestos instead of trying to draw APC out through brickbats and mudslinging.”
The party said that the party is focused on the sustenance of peace, infrastructural, agricultural and industrial revolutions as well as the continuous restoration of the lost glory of the state, saying that any party that is sure of his past achievements and manifestoes should come forward to market it.
It added that the party’s achievements through Governor Abiola Ajimobi are unrivaled by any of the past governors in the present political dispensation, noting that, comparatively, none of the icons of the opposition parties has better achievements than APC.
It said it would rather focus on its governance, developmental and progressive politics and will therefore campaign for continuity with concrete plans, noting that the era of mundane politics and motherhood campaigns are gone in the state.
