APC Accuses PDP Of Planning To Unleash Violence During Jonathan’s Visit To Ekiti State
The ruling All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State has accused the Peoples Democratic Party in the state of plans to cause trouble during President Goodluck Jonathan’s visit to the state on Saturday.
The acting state Chairman of APC, Chief Jide Awe, during a press conference in Ado Ekiti, on Monday, alleged that there was a plan by the PDP to unleash terror on the state during the president’s visit in order to indict the APC.
The president is billed to visit the Afe Babalola University, Ado Ekiti, on Saturday during the maiden convocation ceremony of the university.
Awe said the opposition party was planning to disrupt the third year anniversary rally of Governor Kayode Fayemi billed to hold at the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium, Ado Ekiti.
He said, “The PDP in the state plans to heat up the polity for possible declaration of a state of emergency by the Federal Government.
“We got a hint from the grapevine that the PDP is planning to disrupt our programme at the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium in order to embarrass the governor. This is a calculated attempt to frame up some of our members as trouble makers.
“We want to state that if the PDP actors are planning to take advantage of the visit of President Goodluck Jonathan to show off, then it should be done with modesty and not by setting the state on fire in order to create the impression that APC is out to embarrass the President.”
The state Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Pastor Kola Oluwawole, however, described the allegation as a figment of the APC’s imagination.
“The preoccupation of the PDP in Ekiti State is to put its house in order to present a credible candidate that would dislodge Governor Kayode Fayemi from office in 2014,” he said.
