The Governorship Candidate of the Alliance for Democracy (AD) in Ondo State, Chief Olusola Oke yesterday cr
The legal practitioner who spoke through the Chairman, Media and Publicity of his Campaign Committee, Kolawole Olabisi, frowned at the statement credited to the APC in which it berated Oke for expressing his feelings over the deplorable state of the roads in the State during his Campaign tour of Ondo East local government area of the State.
According to him, “Is it not a shame that a party which has the serious business of campaign on its hands could start belly aching on the business of another person?
“One would have expected the State Government who had neglected the roads networks across the State in the past seven and a half years to be the one attempting to defend itself and definitely not the APC.
“What this has shown is that Oke is their problem because he has the overwhelming support of the people of the State as shown from the legions of members of the APC and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who have been flocking into our Party, the AD in the last few day.”
While counselling the APC not to weep more than the bereaved as it was obviously trying to do, the AD Flagbearer advised them to face the internal strives bedeviling them and leave him out of their woes.
“It is certain that Oke will form the next Government in Ondo State come February next year by the special grace of God and with the support of our people who are thirsting for a real turn around and a new hope, which we represent, he will not be distracted by the antics of drowning people who are merely grasping at straws in their desperation to stay afloat.
“That Oke could identify with the pauperised people of the State by expressing his regrets over the parlous state of the State’s affairs portrays him as a man with a caring heart and one poised to turn around the fortunes of the State for good when he forms government.
“And it is unfortunate for the APC to berate him for doing that was definitely borne out of frustration.”
The Statement therefore enjoined the people of the State to be wary of the APC and vote against them in the November 26, 2016 governorship election as it has no plan for them,urging the people to vote overwhelmingly for the AD in the coming election.
