The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has described its opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as idle and frustrated.
The APC Ogun State chapter noted that the PDP had resorted to empty threats and incitement as its weapon even as it warned that the law is there to tame and deal with any form of unlawful acts by any person no matter how highly placed.
Reacting to threats to take laws into their hands, made by the state PDP in a statement on Wednesday, the APC Ekiti state said the PDP had already taken laws into its hand by sponsoring the latest violence in the state.
This the APC noted resulted in the arraignment of some PDP leaders. It added that nobody is too big to be dealt with by security agents.
In the party’s statement signed and released by its Public Relations Officer, Ade Ajayi, in Ado Ekiti on Wednesday, the APC reminded PDP members in the state of the woes inflicted on people of the state by the immediate past administration, which led the state to a debtor status.”
“With the arrest and arraignment of some hoodlums, who turned out to be PDP members by the police in connection with massive destruction and looting of warehouses in the state last week, faces of those behind the recent terror unleashed on the hapless Ekiti citizens are being unveiled by security agents.”
“The APC is now calling on security agents in the state not to treat with kid gloves, the threat by the PDP that its members will take the law into their hand by resorting to defending themselves against any further attacks.”
“Isn’t it shameful that a party that produced an administration that couldn’t account for billions of Naira meant for budget support, bailouts and other funds it received is now turning around to accuse a prudent government that carries along the people in its day to day activities, of misappropriation?”
“Let them tell Ekiti people where they hid those monies.”
“Their false and unsubstantiated assertion that palliatives are stored in Government House, is a ploy to incite the people to attack the seat of government.
