APC fuelling PDP crisis: Fayose

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of fuelling the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in order to whittle down the influence of opposition in the country.

He said such a development would not, however, be in the interest of the country and Nigerians at large.

In a statement by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, the governor was quoted as saying that a virile opposition was a vital ingredient for democracy and necessary to make democracy thrive.

Fayose, who could not attend the convention owing to the blockade of the road leading to the Old Presidential Lodge of the Rivers State government house where he was accommodated, said the cordoning off of the Sharks Stadium, Port Harcourt by the police on the orders of the Inspector General of Police, had the input of the APC-led Federal Government, saying the police only acted the script written by the APC-led government.

“I witnessed what the police did early today in Port Harcourt, it is most unfortunate. It has shown that we are indeed in a perilous time in the country. The APC is desperate to kill opposition and silence others because they are afraid that their inability to properly govern the country and tackle the challenges facing us as a nation would be exposed by a virile PDP.

“The Buhari government is dictatorial. There is tension everywhere. All sectors are down and they are focusing on killing the opposition. What business has APC with PDP internal matters?

“If they said they wanted to act on court orders, why didn’t they act on more than four orders that were in favour of the Markafi group?

”They don’t have answers to the terrible situations in the country but they know that an organised PDP will be emboldened to challenge them.”

The governor wondered what would have happened if the PDP acted like the APC and refused to hand over to the APC last year.

Fayose said it was unfortunate that Senator Ali Modu Sheriff had turned himself into an instrument in the hands of APC leaders to destabilise the PDP.

He appealed to PDP members from across the country who came to the convention not to feel discouraged, saying the truth would prevail in the long run. (ngrguardiannews.com)
