The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has described as outlandish, petty and hollow the allegation by the Acting National Publicity Secretary of the PDP that Governor Fashola is a dictator based on the reintegration of 14 destitute to their home state. The party said the allegation is the drunken conclusion of a desperate upstart trying to impress his principals on his suitability for the job of image maker to a failed, corrupt and clueless party that had taken the country to the graves in fourteen years of ruinous leadership.
In a release in Lagos, signed by the Lagos State Interim Publicity Secretary of the APC, Joe Igbokwe, the party said that having failed woefully in fourteen years of regressive politics, the PDP, which is crumbling from its own failures is now clutching on any imaginable straw to survive. The party wondered why a party that had stolen hundreds of trillions of Naira while Nigeria promoting destitution, poverty and want in Nigeria is so shameless to take advantage of the victims of its own corrupt governance to gain political favour.
“By trying to take advantage of the willful twisting of the action of the Lagos State government to relocate 14 destitute to their home states, the PDP through its wannabe Acting Publicity Secretary is showing the kind of irresponsible desperation that has hit the party as it comes in full contact with the fruits of its wanton plundering of state resources to render Nigeria a huge colony of beggars and destitute. By trying to buy into the selfish and perverted effort to twist and manipulate the facts of the exercise for political gains, a party that is so shameless to advertise multi trillion Niara scams is showing how dead to shame it has become as it battles to extend its corrupt and deadly reign in Nigeria. By stupidly buying into the convenient tales those that are seeking to gain from the fates of the hapless victims of PDP’s scorched earth policies in governance these past fourteen years, the PDP hierarchy is showing that nothing is too low for it to harvest in its quest for irresponsible power.
