The attention of the Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Lagos State Chapter, Engr Adedeji Doherty and all members of the Executive Committee has been drawn to very disturbing acts of destruction of banners, posters and other materials necessitated for advertising aspirants for the forthcoming council elections in the state.
Reports reaching the office of the State Chairman reveals that these unwanton destructions are happening all round the nooks and crannies of the state.
It was also reported that, the perpetrators of the acts are miscreants purportedly sponsored by persons within the ranks of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
It would be recalled that such incidences were also widely reported in the past without due actions taken.
Engr Doherty called on the Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the APC State Chairman, Mr Babatunde Balogun, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, the DSS and other security agencies to urgently look into this ugly trend.
He stated that Lagos State is not a One Party state and there should be a level playing ground for all and sundry.
He pointed out categorically that it is an irony to have banners and posters of aspirants of the APC up and standing, while those of aspirants of the opposition are either removed, defaced, damaged or destroyed.
He called on all concerned persons and security agencies to urgently nip these acts in the bud before law and order breaks down.
He however, advised all party faithfuls to be peaceful even in the event of extreme provocations.
