The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has dismissed as false claims by Governor Adams Oshiomole, that it registered 8,000 militants for the rescheduled Edo State governorship, stressing that the governor merely flew the kite to get the election postponed.

In a statement by the party’s spokesman, Dayo Adeyeye, PDP took the state governor to task, asking him to disclose the organ of government that did the registration, as well as, the motive.

The party warned Oshiomhole and his cohorts not to “use this lie to tamper with the Voter register, nor should it be used to embark on unwarranted arrest, harassment and intimidation of our members in Edo State.”

While reminding security agencies to recognize that their responsibilities are to the entire people of Nigeria and not only to one political party, APC, the statement added: “In the first instance, we wish to put before Governor Oshiomhole the following pertinent questions, where and when did the PDP register the so-called militants?  
“Were they registered by INEC?  If not, which organisation registered them? Were they registered as voters or as Observers and for what purpose?  And when did Mr. Oshiomhole suddenly discover the registration of the alleged militants?”

    It appears APC is tired, and about to fall.


      APC has indeed lost all strategies indeed.
      That’s why the election was postponed

    No, PDP can’t deny this as some of these thugs were arrested and confessed to their crime. It is unfortunate that the police find too hard to charge electoral fraudsters to court. It is something I find very strange in Nigeria!


      Utolason Leave politicians and their games. Is it also not possible that APC planted those people there to be arrested and confess to crime as PDP members?
      If it were not so, why are the arrested not charged.
      Oshiomole is beginning to make himself repulsive to many.

    One would think that Adams Oshiomhole after a career as a labor unionist would be on the side of the common man in Nigeria but he is worst than the average Nigerian politician. Just like we deceived ourselves to think that Buhari would be a president of every Nigerian but instead he is the president of the north and Muslims. Never again will Nigerians vote in local champions like Buhari and Oshiomhole to lead them

    Mr Liar Mohammed, the former APC spokesman spun lies and deceit to win the presidential elections for his party. Mr Oshiomhole is simply following after the footsteps of his party man. Telling lies is part of their DNA. But after what the Mullah in Aso Rock has done to the economy, Nigerians now know better.
