The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State as a party of “one-day, one-fib”, asking voters to ignore the “latest lie from that stable.”
According to the Chairman, Edo State APC Media Campaign Council, Mr. John Mayaki, “the PDP’s latest lie was the allegation that the APC planned to ‘write results’, and smuggle in those results according to a so-called ‘Hope Uzodimma template’.”
“First of all, it would be interesting to know what PDP means by ‘Hope Uzodimma template’,” Mayaki said.
“But you can see how that party dissipates its energy on laughable lies, when it should focus on telling Edo people what it would do differently, from its present four years of near-absolute waste.”
Mayaki said the “cocktail of lies” was hardly surprising, for the one who lacks solid facts to build his case, would resort to lies to deceive.
The APC campaign spokesperson, however, held that the Edo people are free to contrast the APC campaign of issues, from its SIMPLE Agenda, to PDP’s daily dose of what he called “one-day, one-fib.”
“In a way, you’ve got to pity these guys,” he said. “If you’re around for four years, and you have little to point to, why would you not be dreaming ‘rigging’, to create an excuse, and harvest pity, for sure thumping defeat to come?”
Mayaki boasted that APC would win and win big in the September 19 governorship election, and everything, from its very successful campaigns, is pointing to that.
“Take it from me: we’re winning on September 19 and we’re winning big. We’ll win by the sheer winnability of our ideas and the voter acceptance of our life-changing programmes. For those, the Edo people will reward us handsomely with their votes.”
He stressed that the PDP “cocktail of lies” has helped the Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu campaign to further focus on its own “campaign of facts, figures and sound programmes, borne out of the SIMPLE yet far-reaching agenda.”
“We encourage the PDP to continue misleading and misguiding itself with wild rumours. We know the voters are not deceived. So, we will continue on our own approach, which has proved a hit with our people, everywhere campaign. On September 19,” he continued, “our solid programmes will reap votes, while the PDP lies will harvest tears.”
He thanked Edo voters for their warm and enthusiastic reception so far, and urged them to keep up the faith, and get the PVC ready vote out Governor Obaseki, with a vengeance on September 19.
