The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State on Tuesday went for the jugular of those who detected from the party to Africa Democratic Congress (ADC) and other political parties, saying they will all lose at the forthcoming elections.
The party in a statement issued by the Publicity Secretary, Dr AbdulAzeez Olatunde, took a special swipe at the governorship candidate of ADC, Senator Olufemi Lanlehin, the Oyo South Senatorial Candidate Senator Soji Akanbi, saying the two politicians entered political wilderness and lost their political bearing and relevance the moment they left APC.
Olatunde said: “Senator Lanlehin contested for the seat of Oyo South Senatorial District in 2015 and we all know the result. It is amazing to see someone who cannot win election in nine local governments aspiring to win the gubernatorial election where there are 33 local government councils.
“We will like to remind Senator Lanlehin that he won the election in 2011 based on the strength of our party, the then ACN and not on his personality or popularity. The same thing happened to Senator Akanbi in 2015 who rode on the popularity of the APC and the laudable achievements of Governor Abiola Ajimobi to win the Oyo South Senatorial Seat in the National Assembly.
“We want to tell them and their ilk that no amount of name calling, brick bats and mudslinging can revive their political career. The people of the state have shown their preference for APC and its candidates”.
