PRESS STATEMENT, 19th February, 2019
DELTA APC HAS ALREADY ADMITTED DEFEAT WITH SHADOW CHASING ALLEGATIONS AND FABRICATIONS – DELTA PDP
The attention of the Delta State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has been drawn to a verbose and utterly frivolous publication, signed by the factional Publicity Secretary of the Delta State APC, Barr. Ogheneluemu Sylvester Imonina, which as usual reeks of bumbling rantings and reckless braggadocio, but are actually a clear admission of already accepted defeat in the coming elections.
The publication titled: THE UNCOVERING OF DELTA PDP EVIL POLITICAL MACHINATIONS, and dated 18th February, 2019, was full of wild, rambling and rabble rousing allegations to the effect that the confused and fragmented APC had, even in its stupendous state of incoherence, managed to uncover what in its warped imagination translates as the “evil machinations of Delta State PDP”, based on some spurious and self contrived information, that PVCs were being bought by PDP from unsuspecting members of the public at a popular (name withheld) Hotel at Illah Road/Core area of Asaba, Delta State, for the sum of between Eight to Ten Thousand Naira to the holders, with the promise of getting back to them (the PVCs’ holders) in the near future.
Laughable and bland as this allegation may sound, the APC went on to spew further fabrications, drawing up all manner of mundane scenarios which their limited imagination could manage to conjure as proof, to buttress the feeble logic of PDPs subversion, ostensibly with the intent to load the public space with a slew of misinformation but without tangible substance, save for its nuisance value.
Of course, we know how the APC has struggled in vain to clear itself from the scandalous “TraderMoni” fraud, which was exposed to the world as a shrouded and devious ploy of shameless votes buying from unsuspecting market women and petty traders who meekly volunteered their PVCs to “Pastor” who came to them like a voracious wolf in sheep’s clothing.
This watery attempt to now conjure up an unknown hotel on Illah Road and fabricate a PVC sales racket, is just an amateurish effort to divert attention from the traderMoni scandal, but sadly the blemish of that ill fated scheme to deceive innocent Nigerians and steal their PVCs has already become a major point for the rejection of APC by traders, market women and ordinary Nigerians, who are now wiser to wiles of a failed and confused political party.
We are indeed amused by the very fact that the intensity of APC complaints and bellyaching over what are merely their own nightmares and unfounded suspicions, is a clear indication that they have no focus, direction or clear cut campaign strategy with which to reach out to the various segments of our society and therefore, are constantly and embarrassingly several steps behind the PDP on the campaign circuit. It is this frustration that has manifested in their reckless and unfounded allegations of PVC buying against the PDP.
We also recall that the Delta PDP recently raised a loud alarm over the fact that the APC had surreptitiously smuggled names of it’s loyalists and sympathisers to fill in the short fall of election officials recorded in the personnel quota of two major national tertiary institutions in the State. While we note that our timely alarm may have busted that dubious plan considerably to the point that the APC is now shamefully reversing the allegation, we are still eternally vigilant and very watchful and we urge all our members and loyalists not to rest on their oars or leave any stone unturned to ensure that the elections are not hijacked or sabotaged by the hoodlums and agents of APC, whose intent is to foist a confused, unpopular and unprepared leadership on Deltans and Nigerians and continue to punish Nigerians in the suffering, slavery and hardship that has made Nigeria the poverty Capital of the world in the last three years.
Let’s us state categorically and unequivocally once again, that Delta PDP will not be swayed, diverted or intimidated by any plot hatched or concocted by the APC. We are too big, too strong and too grounded to be destabilized in Delta State and in the words of our popular local parlance, we want to tell APC that “We no dey shake”.
PDP is Delta and Delta State is PDP.
