Edo Council Polls: Stop Peddling Lies Against Oshiomhole, ACN Warns PDP

oshiomhole_969270220The Action Congress of Nigeria has berated the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for trying to disparage and distract Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State.

National Publicity Secretary of the ACN, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, in a statement issued in Lagos on Friday, described the PDP as hypocritical.

“PDP is behaving like the Roman emperor, Nero, who fiddled while Rome burned. A ruling party bogged down by a monumental internal crisis that has now torn its tattered umbrella to shreds.

“There is failure of governance at the centre, killing of innocent Nigerians in Baga and widespread insecurity in the land and the PDP is wasting the time it doesn’t have to peddle lies against an acknowledged state builder like Oshiomhole,” it said.

ACN described the PDP’s allegation of election rigging in the Edo council polls as illogical, saying if the PDP could not win an election in any council during the last governorship poll in the state, despite being in control of the instruments of state power, including the police, it should not have expected any miracle in the council elections.
