The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has described the

statement credited to Mr. Musliu Obanikoro the defeated PDP governorship

aspirant in Lagos that APC will run down Nigeria the way it ran down Lagos

as the height of pun that best typifies the confusion and incoherence that

have hit the PDP as they face imminent defeat in the February election.

The party said that the PDP is going down faster than even the members

could grapple and such imminent rustication is imbuing incredible

incoherence and confusion in its ranks and file as they grapple futilely

with the consequences of their exit from power.
In a release in Lagos, signed by the Lagos State Publicity Secretary of

the APC, Joe Igbokwe, the party said that Mr. Obanikoro is like a rusty

and broken gramophone that oozes nonsense after his humiliation at the PDP

primary by a stooge of Bode George and Adeseye Ogunlewe. It advises

Obanikoro to take time to rehabilitate his battered political image before

uttering incoherent jabs to warm himself back to the fading PDP government

and its patronage.
“It is apparent that Obanikoro is still seeing double from the dazing he

got when his wonky dream of ruling Lagos was finally nailed by a puppet

thrown up by the duo of Bode George and Adeseye Ogunlewe. It is apparent

that Obanikoro is gasping for words to throw to gratify himself once again

to his outgoing Abuja patrons so he will do the last minute harvesting

before the impending burst. So what better way to show this by appearing

blandly paradoxical? From every seeming indication, Obanikoro was jesting

or trying to poke fun on the fading PDP that has so disappointed him by

that statement which shows that he does not believe, as most Lagosians,

that Lagos will ever be infected with the curse PDP has become for

Nigerians for the past sixteen years.
“Yes, APC will run down Nigeria to a country where infrastructures work,

where jobs are created, where there is security, where schools and

hospitals work, where roads are fixed, where free housing is being

provided Nigerians, where the economy is robust, like in present day

Lagos. This is the type of run down Nigeria requires today far from the

PDP 'glorious' picture of massive looting, ethnic and sectarian division

and acrimony, worsening unemployment, infrastructural wreckage, total

unemployment, overwhelming inflation, total devaluation of Naira to

worthless tissue paper, where life expectancy has been brought down to 38

years, where poverty walks on all fours, where there is no light, where

the citizens live in total insecurity, where some parts of Nigeria has

been ceded to insurgents. These remain Obanikoro and PDP's grand

achievements for Nigeria which he is jealously guarding but which

Nigerians want to do away by the massive rejection his PDP is facing all

over Nigeria.
“But beyond Obanikoro;s queerness, we see someone who is running his last

lap in opportunistic politics and who is scared that his fountain of

unearned political perks is about to be upturned. We see a character who

as Chairman of Lagos Island Local Government burnt down the council

secretariat to cover his well known perfidy. We see a character who was

made a Commissioner in Lagos by the Asiwaju Tinubu regime but ended up

misappropriating the money meant for Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca. We see a

person who was made a Senator but ended up as a Judas in Abuja and since

then, despite the patronages he has gotten from his masters, has never set

his consuming political dream on sail in Lagos again. We want to point out

that Obanikoro who has become a serial political failure is running away

from his shadows and with the sure exit of his principals from the seat of

power, and the assured coming in of the APC government this May, Obanikoro

knows it is all over politically for him.
“Lagos APC however wants to assure Obanikoro that Lagos does not want the

curse of the 'run up' he and his looting PDP members have brought to the

country. Nigerians are indeed asking out of the brand PDP 'run up' of

Nigeria and they want a quick end to this harrowing development. Nigerians

are saying with one unifying voice that we will do better without the

curse of 'run ups' the Obanikoros and his fellow PDP members have brought

to Nigeria in the past sixteen years such that the country has become the

third poorest nation on earth even while it is the sixth largest producer

of oil.
“Again, Lagos APC wants to let Obanikoro know, in case, in his desire for

rehabilitation he pretends not to know, that it is such huge success

stories as Lagos, under the APC that is driving the present social

movement for change from unending PDP pestilence. We want to let Obanikoro

know that the suffocating negative achievements of the PDP are factors

fueling the mass acceptance the APC is enjoying and the mass desertion

that is hitting his PDP and which has set him on the kind of confusion to

utter confusing statements with hope such will arrest the drift of PDP

among determined Nigerians.”
