The Ondo State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has vowed to defeat the ruling All Progressives Congress in the October 10 governorship election in the state.
It said this in response to APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s comments, dubbing the Party as ‘dead’ in the state.
This was contained in a statement titled, ‘Bola Tinubu is a day dreamer’, signed by the state PDP Publicity Secretary, Mr Kennedy Peretei, in Akure, on Sunday.
While inaugurating the Ondo State Internal Revenue Service Complex, in Akure on Saturday, Tinubu had said that the PDP was dead and would be buried in Ondo during the October 10 governorship election.
In its statement, the PDP said, “Only last year, the PDP defeated the Buhari-led APC roundly at the presidential elections. The PDP also won two out of the three senatorial seats in Ondo State. How can such a party by any stretch of imagination be said to be dead?
“It is shameful that the only project Tinubu came to inaugurate in three and half years is the Revenue House, a building that stands as a sign post of multiple taxation of the Ondo State people.
“The PDP is offering affordable education and health care delivery as against Aketi engineered astronomical tuition fees that have thrown many of the students in tertiary institutions out of school. By October 10, Tinubu will know which party is dead in Ondo State.”
