The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),have come out to deny allegations made by the Action Progressive Congress (APC),that they were responsible for the damage and removal of billboards and other campaign materials of Pastor Ize-Iyamu who is the governorship flag bearer of the All Progressive Congress.
The PDP made this announcement through the state PDP Publicity Secretary, Mr Chris Nehikhare in a briefing in Benin on Sunday,19 July 2020.Mr John Mayaki,Director of Publicity of Ize-Iyamu Campaign Organisation, had in a statement on Saturday raised the alarm that the campaign billboards and other campaign materials of Pastor Ize-Iyamu were being pulled down and destroyed in some parts of the state capital.He went further to accuse the Peoples Democratic Party and the Edo State Government for this despicable act.
Mr Chris Nehikhare meanwhile described the allegation as being superficial and uncorroborated with no evidence to back-up the claims by the APC.He went further to condemn the act saying,the party (PDP) and the Edo state government were also shocked at the development adding that,the the Edo state government led by Governor Godwin Obaseki had put security agencies on notice to ensure that the criminals are caught and brought to book.
The PDP publicity secretary also advised the APC to look inwards into the party.In his words he said and i quote:
"It is a known fact that there are factions within the APC in the state. Perhaps the factions could be responsible.Let me make it categorically clear that PDP or the state government has no hands in the destruction or damage of the billboards mounted by the APC.While we condemn the act, we, however, advise APC to look inwards, as it is common knowledge that the party is seriously divided and populated by factions.It is laughable that the APC will contemplate that PDP or its government will pay attention to its posters or billboards without messages and want them destroyed or damaged."
With the Edo state governorship election set for September 19 this year,who do you think will come out victorious,the PDP or APC?
