ABEOKUTA—The Social Democratic Party, SDP, in Ogun State has described the purported N50 million offer by the All Progressives Congress, APC, senatorial candidate for Ogun East, Mr. Dapo Abiodun, to residents of Ogun Waterside Local Government to restore electricity in the area, as a Greek gift.
Speaking through a member of the House of Representatives, representing Ogun Waterside, Ijebu-North and Ijebu East in the National Assembly, Mr. Abiodun Abudu-Balogun, the party said the offer was nothing but a way to hoodwink residents of the area to vote for the party in the forthcoming polls.
The party wondered why the APC government had failed to address the problem of electricity in the area over the last three and a half years in office, saying that the APC wanted to reap where it had failed to sow.
Abudu-Balogun said that the party which believed strongly in rural development would find a lasting solution to the problem of electricity in the area, adding that his effort to address the problem yielded positive results for some months before it occurred again.
He said: “Ogun APC government only wanted to reap where it did not sow. Residents should be rest assured that the in-coming SDP government which believed strongly in rural development will resolve the problem of electricity in the area.”
