Claim Of 10,000 Defectors To PDP, A Mirage, Says Kwara APC



By Steve Oni, Ilorin

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara state has described as a mirage the claim of purported defection of 10,000 members of its party to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), condemning the various anti-socio-political tactics which the PDP is struggling hard to employ to devalue the APC.

A statement by the APC’s spokesman in the state, Tajudeen Folaranmi Aro, said: “This claim by the PDP is of doubtful success, laughable, and a terrible absurdity as it would have been impossible to assemble 10,000 defectors in any location at this period of Covid-19 pandemic without the attention of the public.

“More importantly, the leader of the purported defectors is too inconsequential and insignificant to cause any discomfort for the APC in the state or buoy the image of the PDP, which is becoming more and more hopeless in its future, hence its resort to this falsehood and psychological campaign, erroneously thinking that, that will shore up its rapidly dwindling image. The PDP can go on dreaming for the next seven years and there is nothing anybody can do about that.

“The APC led government in Kwara State is taking democratic dividends to the door steps of Kwara people with the giant strides in strategic infrastructural development. We recognise the people as our primary constituency and we are prepared to build a greater and prosperous Kwara State.

“We advise the public to discard the antics of the opposition PDP, which is determined to take advantage of the internecine crisis in the APC to paint a false image of its acceptability.”
