Nigeria elections: PDP speaks on attack on Osinbajo

osinbanjo

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Kwara State has denied involvement of its members and supporters in the attack on Vice-President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo’s convoy in Ilorin on Wednesday.

Osinbajo was in Ilorin for the door-to-door campaign rally of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and other activities of the party, when his convoy was attacked.

Reacting, the Kwara PDP in a statement by its State Publicity Secretary, Mr Tunde Ashaolu, however, noted that the incident was an intraparty affair involving members of the APC, arising from the endless crisis confronting the party.

He added that crisis, however, broke out when Osinbajo got to Alanamu ward of Isale-Aluko, which is the base of two former governorship aspirants of the APC, Lukman Mustapha and Moshood Mustapha, who have been engulfed in superiority war.

“It was also gathered that the money released to be shared among party supporters triggered the violence.

“Our party has no time for violence as we have been busy preparing for the presidential and national assembly elections coming up on Saturday as well as the governorship and State Assembly elections.

“Once again, we emphasise that the PDP has no hand in the fracas and we reject any attempt by the APC to link our party to the crisis. We advise them to resolve the lingering crisis in their party.

“We also urge security agencies to thoroughly investigate this matter and not to indiscriminately arrest innocent people who have no connection with this unfortunate incident,” he said.
