The All Progressives Congress in the State of Osun has said it rejected the war intention of the Vice President, Namadi Sambo, who declared in Abuja Wednesday, that the July 21 and August 9 elections in Ekiti and Osun will be ‘a war’ that the Peoples Democratic Party will ‘fight’ to regain the two states at all cost.
According to the APC, this is a sadistic declaration of war by a government, on its own people and it is also patent evidence that the PDP is the actual cause of the war Nigeria has been having in recent time, including that of Boko Haram.
In a statement released in Osogbo yesterday by the Party’s Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Barr. Kunle Oyatomi, the APC warned that the PDP should think twice before it imports war to the Western part of the country that has been the most peaceful area since the return of democracy.
’We reject this war proposal of the VP because it will spell disaster for the country”, the APC said.
The party further cautioned that already, the Federal Government has a series of war on his hand which it has failed woefully to win. To therefore start a new war on a peaceful people in the West will be biting more than the government can chew.
