VIOLENCE AT WARD CONGRESS,
APC RESPONSIBLE FOR ELECTORAL VIOLENCE IN DELTA STATE…. Asiuwhu.
The Peoples Democratic Party in Delta state has stated that the violence that erupted in different parts of the state as a result of the Ward Congress of the All Progressives Congress has vindicated the party when it said that the APC has been responsible for the Electoral violence which had been experienced in the state, especially during the January 6th Local Government Elections.
The Party speaking through the Publicity Secretary, Forum of PDP Chairmen in Delta state, Comr. Godspower Omafuvwe Asiuwhu, noted that, “the APC has been a party known for violence. Right from inception, it had been a party of strange bird fellows who without ideologies came together to wrestle power from the people oriented and democratic party, just for their selfish gains. As a result of their failure to individually achieve their selfish gains, members of the APC, have resorted to fighting against themselves as each and every one of them is out to grab as much as possible from our collective wealth.”
“We had hitherto warned Deltans of the risk associated with being a member of the APC. It is most unfortunate that the ultimate price had to be paid just for a party to make irrelevant statements. This is not the first time they have caused violence in the state. And as a party we have stated it timelessly that they are responsible for the pockets of violence which has been erupting in the past.”
“During the January 6th Local Government Elections, we raised alarm of the violent activities of the APC, and they in their usual denial blamed unknown elements for the acts perpetrated by their members. Today we have been vindicated. They have in their usual signature, resorted to violence when they didn’t have their way even amongst themselves. Even at their just inconcluded mere Ward Congress they had to end the life of one of their own. This is most unfortunate!”
“As a party the PDP has always maintained its position on peace building. Even in the goals of this present administration as encapsulated in the SMART Agenda, Peace Building remains prominent. But unfortunately, the APC as a party has consciously made numerous attempts to frustrate the peace of the state. This was evident in the different locations their congress was held, from Ughelli to Asaba the result was the same, Violence.”
“Without any positive gain to show for their three years in government at the Federal Level, the APC as a party has recorded countless avoidable deaths among its fold, human rights abuses, open disregard for constituted authorities, total abuse of power amongst many other inhumane actions. We want to by this call on all Nigerians to reject in totality their gimmicks and vote them out in the coming 2019 general elections.” comr Asiuwhu concluded.
