The All Progressives Congress governorship candidate for the June 18 election in Ekiti State, Biodun Oyebanji, has advised his Social Democratic Party counterpart, Segun Oni, to withdraw if he is not ready for a real contest in the impending poll.
By utterances and dispositions, he alleged that Oni was posing as if he was expecting himself to be imposed on Ekiti, rather than a real contest going by phantom accusations he had allegedly been raising against the ruling party to gain relevance.
Oyebanji said this in Ado Ekiti, on Friday, while reacting to an allegation raised by the SDP that its deputy governorship candidate, Ladi Owolabi, was allegedly attacked by suspected APC thugs on Wednesday.
Debunking the claim, Oyebanji, who spoke through the Director of Media and Publicity of his campaign outfit, Hon. Taiwo Olatunbosun told the former governor not to expect to become Ekiti governor on the platter of gold or via undemocratic fashion.
Oyebanji said the people of Ekiti will elect who governs them through a keen and democratic process and not by imposition, thuggery and raising of unfounded accusations for cheap political capital.
The APC candidate added that Oyebanji and members of his political campaign family are deeply obsessed with the ongoing electioneering campaigns and wonâ€™t descend to the level of promoting thuggery and unnecessary attacks.
â€œI want to say with all sincerity and open heart that the APC was not aware of any attack on the SDP deputy governorship candidate.
â€œAnd if truly it happened, I want to dissociate our members from it, because we are busy campaigning all over Ekiti. We are the ruling party and we have a lot of good projects we have done to campaign to Ekiti people, so we have no reason to attack anyoneâ€
