MEMBERS of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo State have been commended for the peaceful way and high level of tolerance exhibited on Thursday, in spite of provocation from the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential train, which was in Ibadan for the campaign of General Muhammadu Buhari.
A statement issued by the director, media and publicity, Oyo State PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Alhaji Kehinde Olaosebikan, alleged that instead of facing the campaign for which they came to the city, the APC members moved round the town, destroying billboards, posters and any PDP property in sight.
Olaosebikan also lamented that the party, instead of facing issues, concentrated on the denigration of the personality of President Goodluck Jonathan and cursing leaders of the PDP in the crudest approach.
He said it was sad that the APC deprived market women and traders in Oja’ba and Oritamerin axis from selling their wares, as a result of the campaign.
The Goodluck Campaign Organisation, therefore, advised the APC leadership to respect the peace accord signed recently by all the parties in the interest of the masses.
