AKURE—THE All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ondo State, yesterday, tackled the lawmaker representing Ondo North Senatorial District, Senator Ajayi Boroffice for giving the erroneous impression that the party in the state is divided and disunited.
Senator Boroffice had warned that it will be suicidal for he party in the state to contest the 2019 general elections as a divided house.
Reacting to Boroffice’s remarks, the party’s Director, Media and Publicity, Mr. Steve Otaloro, in a statement, described the Senator’s statement as “appalling and uncharitable.”
The statement reads: “This statement gave the erroneous impression that the party is in a fray of sort and needed a peace maker to appease it.
“Far from it as he has presented it. The party is in good shape and is at work in harmony to defeat the opposition in the coming general election.”
“Boroffice’s statement also passively expressed such lies that it was by his influence the APC was able to defeat the PDP in the 2016 gubernatorial election in the State.
“Everyone living in Ondo State knew the overt anti-party activities perpetrated by him to subvert the APC’s victory in the 2016 governorship election.
“For a man, who worked assiduously to hammer out an action plan for the opposition against us to come back preaching party unity and cohesion, sparks stupidity. We are definitely wary of such person and his Trojan horse.
“Senator Ajayi Boroffice has continually demonstrated his open hatred for our party, hence, he is not in a position to advise us in any way. He can pocket that.
“APC in Ondo State is already moving forward as one united family and working across the state to reach out to the electorate. Senator Boroffice is not bigger than the party; it is expedient for him to jump on the APC bandwagon for his own good.”
