The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo state has strongly criticized it’s major opposition, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) over Trivialization of security issues in the state.
Nigeriancablenewsonline.com reported how the PDP had alleged that governor Rotimi Akeredolu has concluded plans to deduct the salaries of workers in the state, to fund the state chapter of the southwest security network, code-named ‘Amotekun”
However, the APC in a statement signed by it’s Publicity secretary, Mr. Alex Kalejaye on Wednesday said it is disappointed in the attempt by the opposition PDP, to demoralize the enviable commitment of the APC-led Government to security concerns.
“The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State is appalled by the criminal mockery of the popular efforts of the State Government to keep the Sunshine State safe for all, irrespective of religious or political sympathy.”, he wrote.
“The party is particularly disappointed in the People Democratic Party (PDP) for delving yet into another show of puerile radicalism, and strove (to no avail) to demoralize the enviable commitment of the APC-led Government to security concerns.”
“It is pertinent to remind residents of Ondo State that the sincerity of the Ondo the State Government, under the leadership of Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, on the all- important issue of security, is being well celebrated by Nigerians, home and abroad. It is therefore disheartening that the PDP could trivialize same for political gains.”
“The great strides of Amotekun, working in conjunction with security agencies, have been variously acknowledged. The peace of mind, safety on our roads, and honour attracted to the State therefrom, are indicators that the vision and investment into the project have been justified.”
“We want to specially acknowledge, and appreciate the recent donation of 30 motor bikes, as support to Amotekun, by the state organized labour.”
“Although the PDP’s jejune attempt to ridicule the government crumbled on arrival, the APC calls on the discerning members of the public to be wary of the main opposition party’s baseless tales in future.”
“The State chapter further advises the PDP to raise its standard of criticism above the current kindergarten level so the public could take it seriously.”
“The ruling party commends the efforts of the State Government and, indeed, the State Security Network, for the recent harvest of criminal elements at different locations within the State.”
“The APC urges the Government to discountance frivolous distractions, and sustain the ongoing applaudable efforts, to keep Ondo State a safe haven for investments.” He added.
