Stop Fanning The Embers Of Disunity, Rivers PDP Tells Losers

Published

on

Wike-Ipalibo-BanigoThe Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has called on losers in Saturday’s governorship and House of Assembly elections to emulate President Goodluck Jonathan and concede defeat.

The party explained that rather than fan the embers of disunity and peddling of falsehood, those at the losing end should congratulate the winners of the polls.

The Chairman of the State PDP Campaign Organisation, Mr. Emma Okah, who stated this while speaking with journalists in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, described as paradoxical, a situation where election was adjudged free and fair when the PDP lost while the same exercise would be followed with allegations of irregularities if the PDP won.

Okah, who congratulated the winners of the governorship and House of Representatives elections in the state, described the allegations from the losers as spurious and untrue.

He said, “We urge the losers to be courageous and honourable if truly they are democrats. They should emulate our beloved President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, who, as a true statesman, has shown the way forward in sportsmanship.

“Rather than fan the embers of disunity and peddling of falsehood, they should congratulate the winners. It is indeed paradoxical that whenever the PDP loses, it is alright and process is adjudged free and fair.

“Yet whenever our great party wins, especially in Rivers State, it is followed by spurious allegations of irregularities, fraud and calls for cancellation. The PDP in Rivers State affirms that these allegations are untrue and the handiwork of bad losers”.

    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.”
