The PDP governors while reacting to Oyegun’s outbursts said rather than uniting Nigeria, the APC is more interested in who controls the resources, so as to use it as an instrument of cronyism.
The governors noted that Nigerians need to begin fervent intercession for the APC and its Chairman for God to deliver them from their dangerous inclinations to plunge this country into fascism.
On his part, Okupe said it was unfortunate that Oyegun could lament PDP’s control of oil-producing states.
He stated that while Oyegun in his parochial and mercantile political effusion is beclouded by financial considerations, the respected judges of the Supreme Court must adjudicate on the principles of law, equity and justice.
