Kwara APC accuses PDP of damaging party’s billboards

Share This

From Olanrewaju Lawal, Ilorin

The ruling party in Kwara State, All Progressives Congress (APC), has accused thugs allegedly loyal to the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), of being behind some of its damaged bill in some streets of Ilorin.

 Briefing Journalists in Ilorin yesterday, the Chairman of the APC, Alhaji Ishola Balogun Fulani, said despite the party’s unhidden  hatred for violence, the PDP has continued to provoke its members and that the people  are terribly worried about the violence, lawlessness, destructiveness, bloodshed, bloody attacks and criminal activities of PDP.

 “After the failed attempt to instigate the impeachment of the Governor of Kwara State, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed as the PDP did in Adamawa State, events in Kwara State in the past few days point to a desperate attempt by the PDP and its sponsored political thugs to make Kwara State ungovernable through PDP-instigated political unrest and crises.

“Daunted and frightened by the rising popularity and acceptability of the APC and the APC-led performing government in Kwara State as shown by Kwarans during recent town hall meetings, and the failure of its frivolous and inflammatory press statements to incite Kwarans against the government and the APC, the PDP, which is renowned for thuggery and gangsterism has embarked on criminal activities.

“As we speak, billboards with inscription of APC logo and imprint of APC manifestos sponsored by APC members and erected at the frontage of their houses and junctions of their streets in Ilorin metropolis have been massively destroyed by PDP thugs in a clear attempt to provoke retaliation from APC members in order to set the ground for its evil plot to burn Kwara State.

“For the record, while the APC has no issue of violence, the PDP has fertile record of violence. The PDP has been indicted in all the fracas that have occurred in our dear state. It was PDP thugs that disrupted business activities and destroyed properties at Post Office, Taiwo Isale, Niger Road, Unity Road and other areas of the State on a Monday in protest to the failure of PDP Leadership to fulfil promises made to the thugs that were mobilized to a PDP rally held a day earlier and attended by President Goodluck Jonathan. It was PDP that held bloody congresses in Kwara State that led to loss of lives while many were left brutally wounded,” the party alleged.
