Osun Guber: APC Comment On 2015 Elections Treasonable—Adeyeye
Minister of State for Works, Prince Adedayo Adeyeye has described as treasonable, statement made by the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, Chief Odigie Oyegun, that the APC would form a parallel government should the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) wins the 2015 presidential election.
Adeyeye, who cautioned the APC leaders against instigating bloodshed as they did during the 2011 elections, added that; "It amounts to hatred for Nigeria as a nation and insult on Ekiti people for anyone to claim that the mandate freely given to Dr Ayodele Fayose by the people of Ekiti State in the June 21 governorship election was a stolen one."
In a release issued today, and made available to journalists in Ado-Ekiti, the minister, who said it was unbecoming of a party that wants to rule Nigeria to be threatening to cause anarchy in the country, added that; "Nigerians must begin to take note of what the APC intends to do in 2015 because it will definitely lose the presidential and other elections scandalously."
Adeyeye, who said the threat must not be taken with levity, added that it was the same way the APC instigated violence after the 2011 presidential election, leading to the murder of several youth corpers.
He said; "By their attitude, any election they did not win is rigged.
"Therefore, if the APC loses the 2015 presidential election, which is very sure that the party will lose because President Goodluck Jonathan will be reelected, they will claim that the election was rigged and throw the entire country into chaos by forming a parallel government.
"Perhaps, they are likely to begin this criminal plan in Osun State because they are going to lose Osun on Saturday, and also lose other Southwest States in 2015."
Speaking further, the minister said it was unpatriotic for anyone to be fanning embers of anarchy in the country, when Nigerians are still being killed by the Boko Haram insurgents, with accusing fingers being pointed at the APC as the sponsor of the insurgents.
He called on the people of Osun State not to be deterred by the APC threat and come out on Saturday to send the Rauf Aregbesola-led APC out of the State with their votes.
