The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has dismissed the APC mega rally in Oshogbo, Osun state capital as a “colossal failure; a jamboree of rented crowd.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh in a statement on Tuesday said the rally was “full of hollow and meaningless speeches, symptomatic of a sinking party, desperate for survival”.
“Nigerians are aware that at the rally was a crowd mobilized from other states to join APC officials who were forced to relocate to Osun to create an impression of massive support for the party and its candidate.
“However, we invite the APC to note that it is only the people of Osun and not their hired crowd and horde of entertainers that will vote on Saturday, the PDP said.
Noting that a big humiliation awaits the APC, the PDP lampooned APC leaders who experienced a foretaste of the bitter fate ahead, when the citizens of Osun state booed and jeered at them, calling their party “one-chance bus” as they arrived the state with their rented supporters.
The party once again thanked the people of Osun state for the support and solidarity shown its candidate, Senator Iyiola Omisore, while urging them to remain vigilant ahead of the election.
