The PDP  in Osun  has directed its supporters to immediately remove campaign posters from the streets in compliance with the governorship election time table released by INEC.

The Director of Media Strategy and Publicity of the party, Mr Diran Odeyemi, gave the  directive in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Osogbo.

NAN recalls that Prof. Attahiru Jega, the Chairman of  INEC  had on Thursday at a stakeholders forum in Osogbo said campaign before the stipulated  date was illegal.

INEC had  also fixed May 11 for the commencement of gubernatorial campaign by all political parties in the state.

Odeyemi alleged that most of the campaign posters and bill boards  belonged to the  ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

“The few which carried the name of our party was the handiwork of our supporters and we have now directed them to start removing them,’’ he said.

But Mr Kunle Oyatomi, APC Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy in Osun,  said, “the PDP should go ahead and remove its campaign posters as whoever wants to come to equity must come with clean hands.’’ (NAN)
