Rivals spat over youth reaction to Okowa's litigation

04 November 2015, 18:50

Delta - The All Progressives Congress (APC) has slammed the rival People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for suggesting Delta youths protested the litigation against Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.

APC Director of Media and Political Communication, Dr Fred Latimore Oghenesivbe, described the publication credited to one Preye Ekpebide, as “not only misleading but further revealed the several deceptive tactics of the PDP in their consistent application of outdated 'divide and rule'
method of governance in the state.”

“It is extremely unthinkable for any reasonable person to accept the show of shame put out through the said publication by PDP agents knowing fully well that the APC and Labour Party had informed Nigerians that the ruling of the Justice Nasiru Gummi tribunal will be put to test at the superior courts of justice,” said Oghenesivbe.

“PDP Delta is trying to cause security breaches by publishing falsehood but we appeal to our party men and women including youths in Bomadi to maintain peace by refusing to be provoked by the mischievous statement.”

He claimed that APC youths in Bomadi local government area of Delta State were “boiling with anger” over the said misleading publication.

“Even the party candidate and leader in the state, Olorogun Otega Emerhor, is pressing forward to rescue Deltans from the socio economic slavery and misfortunes of poverty caused by the PDP misrule.”

PDP had not commented.
