Aregbesola requested for security presence in Osun - PDP

05 August 2014, 12:52

Abuja - The People Democratic Party said that Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun formally requested for deployment of security forces to the state for the August 9 governorship election.

This is contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Monday signed by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh.

The statement condemned what it termed attempt by the APC to deceive Nigerians in the deployment of security officials‎ to Osun ahead of the August 9 governorship election.

In the statement, Metuh expressed shock that the governor in turn started pointing accusing fingers at the PDP and the Presidency when the DSS officials arrived in the state.

It recalled a similar statement by APC in June wherein it alleged that a plane carrying Kano State Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso was denied landing permission in Akure.

"It was after was releasing the statement that Kwankwaso’s Director of Press Affairs, Baba Dantiye, announced that his boss was at another event in Kano and had no plans to travel to Ekiti state.

"APC has since proven to be a party with little regard for integrity.

"This APC ‘one-chance-bus’ filled with liars cannot lead Nigeria’’, the statement added.
