LAGOS State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has faulted calls by the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the rejection of Senator Musiliu Obanikoro as a ministerial nominee over his alleged involvement in an audio recording on Ekiti State governorship election, saying the party is behaving like a bad loser.
It noted that such calls lacked merit since the authenticity of the tape is yet to be ascertained.
Briefing newsmen yesterday in Lagos, the PDP Secretary, Wahab Owokoniran said Obanikoro’s nomination is well deserved.
His words: ‘’All these claims are unfounded and the APC is only doing that to discredit the president’s nomination, which has the blessing of all members of the party in Lagos. There has not been any protest to the nomination from the PDP or any non-political group in Lagos. The only group mounting opposition to the nomination is the APC, which is well understood, we don’t expect anything less.”
“We are talking here of a tape that has been doctored to reflect their negative opinion about an election they lost freely and fairly, but they are being bad losers.”
