DELTA: Voters won’t reward APC’s monumental failure with votes, PDP tells Tinubu

AHEAD of today’s presidential rally in Delta State, the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has in the state in the spirit of fair play and national unity, welcomed the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to his rally with the party’s gubernatorial candidate in the state, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, and said hopes he enjoy the traditional hospitality of Deltans for which they are well known all over the world.

A statement yesterday and signed by the party’s Publicity Secretary in the state, Dr. Ifeanyi M. Osuoza, it noted that in the circumstance of the experience of Delta State and Deltans in the hands of the APC-led Federal Government, the state is unable to give anything more than its traditional hospitality.

 The statement read: “Deltans will not pitch their votes to APC for many reasons. First of all, the Warri-Benin road, and the Warri-Eku-Abraka-Agbor road; which are Federal Government roads, have become major deathtraps and eye sores viewed against the over 1900 kilometers of roads constructed by the PDP Government of Delta State, under the leadership of His Excellency, Dr. Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa

“This is even more painful when the State Government has offered severally to fix these roads and the Federal Government rejects such offers and chases away workers sent to fix the roads.

    “More importantly, the humongous debt that your party’s-led Federal Government has incurred, has put the nation in such jeopardy, making Nigeria the poverty capital of the world. This makes it imperative that an urgent rescue of Nigeria from APC is what Deltans and Nigerians are calling for right now.

   “Your party’s case is even more compounded by your poor coronation of a gubernatorial candidate in the person of Ovie Omo-Agege, the alleged notorious mace rustler, (without prejudice to his exoneration by the court), whose supposed link to brazen thuggery on the floor of the hallowed Senate Chamber, was rewarded by your party with the plum position of Deputy Senate President. 

   “In this office, you will agree with us, that he has exhibited his well-known rapacious leadership incompetence, clannishness, greed, and sycophancy.

   “While your party might just be noticing these tendencies now, we in Delta State have since known this of him. Since the founding of Delta, he has had the reputation of being the worst-ever Secretary to State Government. But we are not surprised that your very poor-performing party has chosen a man whose antecedents are nothing to write home about. 

   “You will not also be surprised to know that the Senate over which he presides as Deputy Senate President, is rated as the very worst in the history of Nigeria.

   “The resultant national insecurity, ethnic and religious disharmonies, extreme poverty, hunger, massive youth unemployment, and pervasive ‘Japa’, have become the hallmark of the disaster that your party has visited on Nigeria and Nigerians.

   “For these reasons, Deltans are unanimous in saying God forbid that they reward your monumental incompetence with their votes.”
