The Ogun state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have react to the alleged plan of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Labour Party (LP) to merge in the state so as to vote out the incumbent governor, Ibikunle Amosun come 2015.
The APC has in a statement made available by the party’s publicity secretary in the state, Mr. Sola Lawal labelled the plan merger a failure in the waiting. APC noted that PDP and LP have always worked together in the state and have never succeeded in their previous plans hence this one will be no different.
Part of the statement reads:
“In 2011, all the present members of the Peoples Democratic Party and the Labour Party in Ogun State were all in the PDP with only a sprinkling of them in the PPN, yet the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, a precursor to the APC, trounced them.”
“Without the executive power of government in its hands, the APC pummelled the combined forces of the opposition. Now consider how much easier it will be with the superlative performance of the Amosun administration to send them to their electoral grave.”
