THE New Nigeria People’s Party’s (NNPP) has accused the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Oyo State, for destroying The billboards for the governorship candidate of the NNPP in the state, Engr. Popoola Olukayode Josuah, also known as POJ,
according to Oyo NNPP, the act was allegedly carried out to stop Popoola Olukayode’s popularity from growing,
the party also questioned whether the APC administration had ever done the same to the PDP prior to the 2019 elections.
Femi Olaitan Hero, the party’s state publicity secretary, described the incident as an intimidation attempt and a proof that the Oyo PDP is becoming aware of NNPP’s existence in oyo state.
The NNPP claimed that the PDP and governor Seyi Makinde are anxious about their imminent loss in the elections of 2023 while denouncing the unlawful conduct in its entity.
“The PDP is making Oyo State lawless, and the current administration has done more than any other to foment hooliganism and encourage brigandage.”
“Attacks on opposition party members and the destruction of opposition campaign billboards and banners have made it abundantly evident that governor Makinde and his party have already conceded defeat”.
The rate at which PDP thugs are defacing POJ billboards and advertisements for our party’s governorship candidate is concerning; their goal is to hinder his rising popularity in the state.
“Oyo PDP and Makinde are not tolerant. Unlike the late Ajimobi administration, not a single billboard or poster of governor Seyi Makinde was defaced in the state before or during the campaign, despite the fact that Ejiogbe and his boys were present at the NURTW’s affairs at the time.
