The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has dismissed allegation by the All Progressives Congress (APC) that the PDP was plotting to disrupt the governorship and House of Assembly elections in the southwest on Saturday, insisting the APC is merely crying wolf for fear of imminent defeat at the polls.
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, in a response said the false alert by the APC is part of its plot to heighten tension in the zone and scare away voters from exercising their franchise having realized that the wind of change blowing in the region will sweep them away on Saturday.
“It is clear to all that the APC has become hysteric over the soaring popularity of the PDP in the southwest states, especially Lagos where the people are determined to vote for the PDP candidate, Mr. Jimi Agbaje who has proven to be better than his APC counterpart.
“This latest false alert is in continuation of APC’s desperation which made it to drag the revered traditional institution to rain death threats on people ostensibly to sway the voters”, the statement said.
The party however said that such antics would not save the APC in the zone as voters in Lagos and other southwest states have already made up their minds in support of the PDP.
It therefore charged its members and supporters in the region, especially in Lagos, not to be deterred but completely disregard APC’s gimmicks and come out in large numbers to vote for PDP candidates in the elections.
