APC yet to recover from 2019 governorship election defeat in Oyo – PDP
Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo State, Engineer Akeem Olatunji, has said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state is yet to recover from its defeat during the 2019 governorship election.
Olatunji made this disclosure on Friday in Ibadan, the state capital.
DAILY POST recalls that PDP’s candidate, Engineer Seyi Makinde, had in 2019 defeated APC’s candidate, Adebayo Adelabu, and candidates of other political parties to win the gubernatorial election.
The PDP has however said that the APC is yet to recover from the loss it suffer during the election.
It made this declaration while reacting to a statement credited to APC Publicity Secretary, Dr Abdulazeez Olatunde.
Olatunde had on Thursday described Makinde as a non-performing governor. He alleged that Makinde had wasted the number of months he used as governor of the state.
But Olatunji, while reacting, described the statement by Olatunde as symptoms of acute traumatization.
He insisted that APC was still suffering from the defeat of 2019.
The PDP spokesman, in a statement made available to DAILY POST on Friday, explained that Makinde has performed beyond the imagination of APC and other opposition political parties in the state.
He said that the statement credited to Olatunde is an affirmation that the APC was still suffering from the defeat of 2019.
“For the purpose of record, we will like to enlighten and educate our amateurish brothers and sisters in the opposition party, members of APC in Oyo state, who are still licking their sore wounds as bad losers still traumatized by the 2019 electoral defeat.
“For about a year now APC in Oyo state could not fathom how to play out their de-marketing script (false propaganda) being their known trademark because of the unprecedented sector by sector success recorded in the last 31 months of the Seyi Makinde led administration hence, their return to telling brazen and unbridled lies,” he said.
“Oyo APC must shift away from its dirty and stinking approach to politicking which to tell lies, lies, more lies, until the unsuspecting members of the public get confused to a policy by policy sector by sector engagement as being practised in saner parts of the world with civilized members of opposition political parties.”
