• APC gained power via lies – Ologunagba
The People’s Democratic Party, PDP, National Chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu has said with the party’s control of Osun and Oyo states, the chances of its presidential candidate in the 2023 election has become brighter.
Ayu stated this Thursday at the meeting of the party’s national working committee (NWC) with former national publicity secretaries, zonal, state publicity secretaries and other stakeholders in Abuja.
He stressed the need for the party to maintain relationship formed on realities with the Nigerian people, adding that “the Nigerian people as long as we continue to do the right things, they will believe us and they will definitely give us their mandate.
“We try to convince Nigeria people of the disgusting realities that they find themselves in, thanks to the APC and all the lies they told against the PDP.”
“I think that message is getting through by the series of elections we’ve gone through. The elections in Abuja in the six area councils, people voted massively for the PDP.
“The elections in Ekiti and Osun, again, it was clear that the preferred party that the Nigerian people want to take over power next year is still the PDP. This is not based on lies, it is based on realities. “It’s based on the reality of these two states elections Ekiti and Osun, never mind we had a hiccup in Ekiti for reasons which many Nigerians and party members know, we still keyed in on a very important state of Osun.
“This means we now control the heartland of the Southwest. We control both Osun and Oyo, and if you control the heartland of the Southwest, you are likely to win in the rest of the Southwest in Ondo, in Ogun and of course the big prize in Lagos,” he said.
He urged the party publicity secretaries at all levels to convey to Nigerians the failure of the APC-led administrations.
“We are definitely going to win the next election, we’ll increase the number of governors, we’ll control the National Assembly, House of Representatives, most state houses of assembly and of course the big price friends, we shall return to the Villa,” he added.
Earlier in his remarks, PDP National Publicity Secretary Debo Ologunagba had said the APC came to power through propaganda and lies.
Ologunagba who stressed the need for unity to defeat the lies of APC, said: “We believe that together we can pilot the affairs of this party, and of course our nation by ensuring that we have this conversation.”
He further said: “We came out with the mandate that we will as a party confront and engage in conversation war with the liars, the liars of the APC.
“From that moment, we directed our communication in ensuring that the communication that we have is to expose the lies of the APC with which they hoodwinked Nigeria in 2014.”
