The immediate past Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Prince Diran Odeyemi, has warned All Progressives Congress in Osun State against creating crises through involvement in the spread of fake reports regarding its petition before the election petition tribunal.
Odeyemi, in a statement obtained in Osogbo on Sunday, said going by the result of the last July 16 governorship poll, the people of the state have rejected the ruling party and declared that no matter how strong the propaganda by the APC, it would not return to power.
He also said the leaders of APC already knew that the petition against the victory recorded by Senator Ademola Adeleke of the PDP was of no significance and constituted no threat.
He, however, disclosed that the APC embarked on a media trial to keep its structure together, warning that all those involved in pushing fake information risk prosecution, should their action lead to a breakdown in law and order in any part of the state.
He said, “APC and its paid agents have been going around spreading fake information on social media. They fabricated overvoting and put words in the mouth of the Tribunal that has not even commenced which will not save them. The people of Osun have rejected APC and its antics and massively voted Senator Ademola Adeleke as their governor.
“No matter how well fabricated or intense the propaganda being spread regarding the election petition tribunal by the APC agents on the social media, the truth will prevail and the decision of the Osun electorate that Adeleke should lead the state will become reality. Osun people have rejected APC and no amount of propaganda will return them to office. It is over for them.”
