PDP insists Tinubu is behind attacks on Fashola

01 September 2015, 14:46

Lagos - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State has absolved itself from any attack against the immediate past governor of the state,  Babatunde Fashola, reports Daily Post.

The party noted that the statement credited to the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu that the PDP was behind the attacks was laughable and diversionary.

The PDP in a statement by the state's Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani, stated that Tinubu is the actual sponsor of the attacks, noting that his denial is not only disgraceful, but also an after thought in order to avoid his own attacks.

Gani said Tinubu is jittery and denying the attacks because of the rumoured plans by Fashola to release classified information of frauds and assassination during the administration of Tinubu.

He said bringing the PDP into the crisis is deliberate to divert attention from the real issues of fraud in the state.

He reiterated the party’s stance that the state was mismanaged by both Tinubu and Fashola since 1999.
