PDP rubbishes APC candidates for Kogi, Bayelsa polls

13 October 2015, 17:05

Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rubbished the candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Kogi and Bayelsa states in the upcoming governorship election in the two states, reports NewsDay.

A former Kogi State Governor, Prince Abubakar Audu and another ex-governor in Bayelsa State, Chief Timipre Sylva, are the APC candidates for the elections slated for November 21 and December 5.

The PDP said the credentials of APC candidates in the two states makes a mockery of the party’s anti-corruption stance.

The PDP in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, described as a shameful irony and display of crass hypocrisy, the fact that a ruling party that prides itself as an anti-corruption crusader, will field candidates being held on corruption charges

Metuh said the emergence of Audu and Sylva has further exposed the insincerity of the APC.

He stated the decision of the APC to field the two candidates is an open invitation by the APC to corrupt persons to join them as a party that accommodates, protects and promotes corruption in the country.
