Ogun APC Alerts Of Smear Campaign Against Abiodun, Ahead Of March 18
Ogun State All Progressive Congress (APC) has alerted of a plot to launch a campaign of calumny on the social media against its candidate, Governor Dapo Abiodun, ahead of the February 28 polls.
The party in a statement by its state spokesman, Ambassador Tunde Oladunjoye, said the plot is being sponsored by some unscrupulous politicians and fifth columnists.
According to the statement, the smear campaign would be in form of coordinated attacks, such as sponsored articles, half truth and outright lies against the governor and his administration.
Oladunjoye asks people in the state to ignore the planned campaign of calumny and vote for Governor Abiodun and other APC candidates on Saturday.
A statement issued in Abeokuta by the Patron of the group, Alhaji Rasheed Sanusi, said, it has uncovered “a plot by a notable politician, who lost out in the battle to install his stooge, got a bloody nose in the fight for the soul of the party and has refused to come to terms with the present realities.
“Now, the abrasive politician well known for rabble-rousing, has recruited many hirelings and hangers-on who are hiding behind some faceless groups and organisations to concoct and spin lies against the hard-working Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun state”.
“While we want to use this opportunity to alert members of the public and the good people of Ogun state about this grand plot, we equally want to urge them to take the lies, fake stories and propaganda with a pinch of salt”.
“In the same vein, we wish to warn the heady one behind this plot that as good citizens of the state, we will not fold our hands and watch the political shenanigans, machinations and distractions aimed at distracting a very focused governor whose ratings continue to swell by the day”.
“In the meantime, our advice to Mr. governor and leader of our party in the state is that he should not be distracted.
He should remain focused on his agenda for the growth and development of our dear state. His landmark and laudable works speak for him in various sectors of our beloved state. And that is why we are resolute in our support for continuity of the good works since the reward for a job well done is more work.”
“Based on intelligence reports, we have alerted the public recently on the evil plans of these renegade politicians who continue to see the achievements of the current administration as pointers to the extinction of their relevance. Worse still, for them, their discerning principal followers are leaving their ruptured camp in droves having realised they have been fooled and lied to for so long.”
