— As PDP Chieftain, Solomon Bitire, gives APC a new acronym during campaign
Group of women in Erekiti town under Okitipupa Local Government of Ondo State yesterday trooped out in their numbers to canvass support for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and all its candidates in Ondo South ahead of the 2019 general election.
In a statement made available to Starnews by the Director of Media and Publicity of Tofowomo Campaign Organisation, Olumide Akinrinlola, the women were led by a former Supervisory Councilor of Okitipupa Local Government, Miss Bukonla Abilawon.
The women danced and sang various types of solidarity songs in favour of the presidential Candidate of PDP, Ahlaji Atiku Abubakar, Ondo South Senatorial Candidate, Otunba Nicholas Tofowomo, and Mr. Ikengboju Gboluga who is the PDP Candidate for House of Representative for Okitipupa/Irele Federal Constituency.
Abilawon said the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration in Ondo State and at the center represents Herdsmen, Boko Haram, poverty, failure, retrogression.
She promised that the meeting will always take place twice in a week in their readiness to mobilise support for PDP and its candidates in Ondo State.
A close political friend of Atiku Abubakar and foremost Leader of PDP from Lagos State, Chief Willy Akinlude who also hosted the meeting yesterday, said Nigeria must be rescued from the hands of the ruling APC which he described as a political party built on deceit and propaganda.
Chief Akinlude said many bigwigs of APC are already working for PDP and will not join the PDP not until some weeks to the election which he claimed will be a shocker to president Muhammadu Buhari and his followers.
“Even those currently working with the president knows the creator of Heaven and Earth has rejected him. Some of them are presently working for Atiku but may not decamp not until few weeks to the election. Buhari and some APC apologies will receive the shock of their lives few weeks to the general election,” he said.
In attendance at the meeting were ex Local Government Chairmen of Okitipupa, Mr Eni Akindutire and Hon. Solomon Bitire who is also the Secretary of Tofowomo Campaign Organisation. Also at the meeting was Mr Olumide Akinrinlola, Director of Media and Publicity of Tofowomo Campaign Organisation, among other chieftains and leaders of PDP in Okitipupa Local Government.
While addressing the group, Bitire said Nigerians have learnt their lesson after they committed grievous mistakes to have voted out PDP in 2015.
Bitire allegedly said that APC is an association of “all promises canceled”. He thereby urged all aggrieved members of the party to sheath their sword to vote for Atiku Abubakar and all the candidates of PDP ranging from the House of Assembly, Reps and the Senate.
On his part, Akindutire commended the women for coming out in their numbers. He advised them to double their next attendance by next meeting. According to him, ” APC is not a political party that can solve the problem of Nigerian because it was a built on lies and vain promises”
