Edo APC Alleges Plot By PDP To Infiltrate Rally With Thugs


News Investigators/ The State Media Campaign Council of the All Progressives Congress for the Edo Governorship election has raised alarm on alleged plans by the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, and his party, the PDP, to mar its campaign flag-off rally set to hold tomorrow in Benin City.

The Chairman of the Campaign Council, John Mayaki, said in a statement that Governor Obaseki has perfected plans to position thugs donning APC branded shirts to obscure their identity and intention at different positions around the rally venue to heckle, attack, and harass members of the APC and invited guests.

He said: “As the APC is set to flag off, officially, its campaign tomorrow, valid and trustworthy information has reached us, confirming the plan of Governor Godwin Obaseki-led PDP to infiltrate the campaign ground and plant a dramatic play staged by paid youth and women to harass the APC dignitaries and politicians.”

“The plan, in detail, unravels in a pattern conceived by Obaseki whereby bribed thugs and cultists will be positioned at different points around our rally venue in APC clothing to heckle and embarrass our party members and other invited guests.”

“To achieve his shameful drama, Obaseki stages women as well, so that it is not immediately obvious that the agitating youths are paid aggressors. These women, we have obtained, have already been offered 2,000 naira each to stage the fake protests at the venue.”

“Besides the outright crookedness of this devious plan, what is equally heartbreaking is the awareness that Godwin Obaseki has demeaned our women and youth to the point of estimating them to the worth of 2000 naira for a disturbing and dangerous job.”

“As a governor who promised a lot, including delivering 200,000 jobs, but ended up achieving and delivering none, it becomes more painful seeing the low levels he has brought a state previously famed for the industriousness of its human capital.”

“We are alerting the world to this and urging all Edo people not to be used by an irresponsible Governor who failed to create jobs for the youths, who failed to protect markets from fire, and who failed to fulfill his promise to rebuild markets that were razed to the ground, to use them for his selfish ambitions. All Edo people of good conscience should not let themselves be used to the ends of this destructive, non-beneficial act.”
