Osun Debt Profile: APC Gives PDP Seven Day Ultimatum To Apologise

Published

on

APC-PDP.jpgThe Osun State chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, has given the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) a seven-day ultimatum to apologise to the citizens for “lying and misleading” many of them about the state’s debt profile.

Osun APC Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Kunle Oyatomi, in a statement, said: “Only a gang of rascals and vagabonds could have set out lying through their teeth about so many things against the government and Governor Aregbesola to discredit both based on total falsehood.

“The only path of honour left for the PDP is to apologise publicly to the people.

“These people who lead the PDP in Osun are so accustomed to lying that they are no longer capable of understanding the difference between a lie and joke, and the consequences of either or both to their public image”.

The party recalled that the PDP had been creating confusion and attempting to incite public anger against the APC-led state government and Governor Rauf Aregbesola by spreading despicable and mischievous lies that “at every stage of this evil exercise, the leadership of the PDP looked much like a monstrous machine made to destroy, rather than to build”.

According to the APC, the question of the debt profile of Osun has now made the PDP look terribly dishonourable.

The party said: “The PDP has for long been insisting that Aregbesola has ruined the future of the state by owing above N300 billion which is absolutely beyond Osun’s capacity to manage. According to PDP’s governorship aspirant, Iyiola Omisore, that’s a principal reason Aregbesola did not deserve a second term in office.

“But now, the truth is not only in the public domain, the Director General of the Debt Management office (DMO), Dr. Abraham Nwankwo, has told Nigerians that ‘Osun State is one of the states in the federation with good and stable public debt management …’  and that ‘the state needed to be encouraged in terms of management of debt because it has not borrowed beyond its capacity…’ . ‘Osun state debt status is very sustainable’.

“The PDP and all those who have been telling this dangerously damaging lie need to redeem themselves if they are not political vagabonds. And the only acceptable way to do this is through an unreserved public apology within the next seven days”.

    Fashola: If We Keep Our Promises, APC Will Retain Power In 2023Babatunde Fashola

Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has expressed optimism that Nigerians will still vote the All Progressives Congress (APC) back to power in 2023.

Fashola, however, added that the only thing that can make Nigerians not to vote for the APC is if the party fails to fulfill its campaign promises to them.

The Minister made this remark while speaking with journalists on Monday in Abuja.

He noted that even if the promises are not 100% fulfilled but the citizens see signs of commitment and progress, other parties should forget about displacing APC in 2023.

The former Lagos State Governor added that opposition parties are not doing better than the APC, hence should not expect Nigerians to vote for them come 2023.

He said: “Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics,” the former Lagos governor said.

“If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred percent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish what you started.”
