The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State at the weekend stated that it is focused on the sustenance of peace, infrastructural, agricultural and industrial revolutions as well as the continuous restoration of the lost glory of the state, saying that any party that is sure of his past achievements and manifestoes should come forward to market it.
The party in a statement on Sunday by its Publicity Secretary, Dr AbdulAzeez Olatunde urged the opposition parties in the state to campaign with their manifestoes instead of trying to draw the party out through brickbats and mudslinging.
Also, the party took a swipe at the Ibadan North West/South West Federal Constituency candidate of African Democratic Congress (ADC), Dr Wasiu Olatunbosun for condemning the APC, adding that he was an integral part of APC government in the state “until his selfishness and self-centeredness pushed him out.”
Dr Olatunde said that the party’s achievements through Governor Abiola Ajimobi are unrivaled by any of the past governors in the present political dispensation, noting that comparatively, none of the icons of the opposition parties has better achievements than APC.
The party said it would rather focus on its governance, developmental and progressive politics and will therefore campaign for continuity with concrete plans, stating that the era of mundane politics and motherhood campaigns are gone in the state.
Dr Olatunde stated that the ADC candidate has no moral right to castigate the APC government that he was a part of.
The APC went on to mock the ADC over the departure of one of its former leaders, former governor, Senator Rashidi Ladoja.
“We congratulate the ADC on the exit of their messiah, Senator Ladoja to Zenith Labour Party (ZLP), having traversed four different parties in the last one year and we urge APC members to show understanding with the vituperations of members of the opposition as they now have forlorn hope in the 2019 poll”, Olatunde concluded.
