Akeredolu: Ondo Federal Lawmaker Denies Being Behind PDP/APC Clash

Published

Hon. Omolafe Adedayo has debunked allegations levelled against him by Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State.

Naija News recalls that Akeredolu had accused the federal lawmaker of instigating the recent violent clash between the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.

Recall that supporters of the two political parties had recently clashed on Saturday and Sunday at the popular Oba Nla area of the state.

Omolafe, popularly known as “expensive”, is a PDP lawmaker representing Akure South/Akure North Constituency of Ondo State at the House of Representatives.

Omolafe in a statement by his media aide, Mr Kehinde Omoniyi, accused Akeredolu of turning the truth upside down.

He said, “The said attacks and sporadic shootings at Obanla, Odopetu and other hot spots in Akure were carried out in the full glare of bewildered members of the public by some notable thugs of the ruling All progressives Congress with the active involvement of Mr Adebo Idajo- Ondo State Chairman, National Union of Road Transport Workers.

“In recent days, it has become a source of concern in Ondo State, the brazen destructions, shootings and killings at the behest of the ruling APC, obviously as a result of its decline popularity and fear of rejection at the polls by our conscious electorate.

“The outgoing government has resorted to different forms of braggadocio and lawlessness to disturb the hitherto peaceful coexistence of all the decent inhabitants of our dear state.

“Our Principal, Hon. Omolafe Adedayo, who at different fora, always preaches peace and decency in all his campaigns and would not encourage, covertly or overtly rascality among party members to gain undue electoral advantage for our highly favored governorship candidate Eyitayo Jegede, SAN, who is poised to win, according to the popular demand, this week Saturday’s gubernatorial election.”
