Edo State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Kassim Afegbua, says comments by the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, on the forthcoming Edo governorship elections were false alarm.
Afegbua in a statement yesterday said: “While we took over the state by storm with our grand finale, PDP governors sneaked into town and held their rally in a 12 by 13 feet room. What does that tell you? We were more prepared for elections than they”.
“Secondly, following the arrest of some militants who are being arraigned, it was obvious that the security threat was real. The Police and DSS have been able to make successful arrest of militants who were hitherto recruited to cause violence in the state, and their confessions have simply explained the devilish intention of the PDP.
“By and large, PDP is guilty as charged. Whatever alarm we have raised, has been confirmed by revelations and arrests that have been made. Rather than preparing for elections, they are busy carrying out nocturnal meetings and recruiting thugs and militants to the state to perpetrate evil.”
