Oyo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said on Sunday that the State’s chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) should bury itself in ignominy for turning out a below par performance within its eight year rule of the Pacesetter state.
The party in a statement by the State’s Publicity Secretary, Engineer Akeem Olatunji, said that the name of APC in Oyo can conveniently be replaced with hunger, oppression and deception.
“That the rule of the APC between 2011 and 2019 was lacklustre would be stating the obvious but the party also signifies deception at its height,” the statement read, adding that the people of Oyo State are trying hard to erase the sad memories foisted on them by the APC.
“Instead of being sober and coming out to profusely apologise for their failings, the APC is showcasing a sort of repulsive audacity, that is only drawing the people to anger.
“We are, however, happy that the government of Engr. Seyi Makinde is striving hard to erase that memory from everyone’s psyche and cushion the sad effects of the mindless rule by trying to heal the emotional and psychological trauma the APC government plunged the state into in the last eight years,” the PDP said.
The PDP said its statement was in response to the lingering arguments about the reconstruction works on Iwo Road interchange planned by Governor Makinde.
Engr. Olatunji also described the APC as sore losers in respect of its criticisms of Engr. Makinde’s policies and programmes.
It said: “The time is near when we will have no other option than to expose all atrocities committed by the APC in Oyo state in the last eight years.
“For now, they should thank their stars that they have in Engr. Seyi Makinde, a calm personality who is not vindictive in any way.”
