The Ondo State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed confidence that it would defeat the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming October 10 governorship election in the state.
The PDP noted that the results of the election would surprise the National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who had reportedly described the PDP as a “dead” party.
Tinubu reportedly stated this while inaugurating the Ondo State Internal Revenue Service Complex in Akure on Saturday. The APC National Leader allegedly said that the PDP would be buried in Ondo in the forthcoming election.
The PDP statement was contained in a statetment titled ‘Bola Tinubu is a day dreamer’.
The statement signed by the Ondo State PDP Publicity Secretary, Kennedy Peretei, reads below in parts;
“Only last year, the PDP defeated the Buhari-led APC roundly at the presidential elections. The PDP also won two out of the three senatorial seats in Ondo State. How can such a party by any stretch of imagination be said to be dead?
“It is shameful that the only project Tinubu came to inaugurate in three and half years is the Revenue House, a building that stands as a sign post of multiple taxation of the Ondo State people.
“The PDP is offering affordable education and health care delivery as against Aketi engineered astronomical tuition fees that have thrown many of the students in tertiary institutions out of school. By October 10, Tinubu will know which party is dead in Ondo State.”
