PDP fears alleged plans to destabilise Ekiti

10 June 2015, 11:10Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Ekiti State Chapter of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) has raised alarm at alleged plans by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to destabilise the region by burning some petrol stations.

It is alleged the APC is planning to commit the crime before the end of the week.

Jackson Adebayo, State Publicity Secretary of PDP, alleged such plans were hatched in a meeting of the leaderships of the APC, which lasted into the early hours of Tuesday.

The PDP spokesman said the meeting was held at the house of one of the leaders of the APC in Ajilosun area of Ado Ekiti.

He maintained that the decision of the APC to kick start the agenda to destabilize the state was to prevent the state government under the leadership of Ayo Fayose from settling down so that he would not be able to commence the development plans he had for Ekiti.

Adebayo noted some of the hoodlums that were assigned carry out the act were already monitoring the state.

“We want to, in this respect call for vigilance in the part of petrol dealers in order not to fall victim while warning some of them who might conspire with the APC to commit this crime to stop forthwith because we in PDP will do everything possible to expose them,” Adebayo said.

“We also call on all the security agencies to come to the aids of the people of the state in order to avoid the destructive agenda being orchestrated by the leaderships of APC,” he added.

There have been tensions in the state where some APC legislators are challenging the election of Fayose last year, citing alleged vote rigging.

Comment could not be obtained from the party.
