The Ondo state chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC), has said it has uncovered plans by some opposition parties to destroy it ahead of October 10, 2020 gubernatorial election in the state.
In a statement on Wednesday by the state Publicity Secretary, Mr. Alex Kalejaiye said “the unholy alliance is informed by the fact that the political parties perceive APC as a common enemy because they are jittery over the rising profile of the ruling APC, on account of its performance.
“To achieve this, it was further gathered, the parties are to lay at the doorstep of the ruling party all forms of violence and acts of thuggery that will be carried out by their sponsored agents.
“As a responsible and responsive political organisation, the APC appreciates and it is committed to peaceful campaigns and rancor-free gubernatorial election.The party abhors anything that can inflict pains on the good people of the state.”
According to him, “Political leaders will do well to avoid making inflammatory statements that are capable of spurring their followers in unjustifiable and uncivilised actions.
“The best way to win over the electorate is to sell programmes of various parties, convince them of ability to deliver on campaign promises, and appeal for their understanding and support.”
