The All Progressives Congress (APC), Ondo State Chapter has described as puerile, myopic, and incoherent the argument of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), that the recent wedding ceremony of a daughter of Mr. Governor in Mauritius was an act of “insensitivity”.
A statement from the party’s Publicity Secretary, Mr. Alex Kalejaye said sincere and informed people are aware that parents exercise control over the choice of venue for the traditional marriages of their children. Thereafter, the young couples decide where to host or celebrate with their friends.
The APC-led government, according to the statement, would not be distracted by feeble and ill-conceived arguments from a group or parties, in its pursuits of better living conditions for the people.
“The PDP, in its desperation to score cheap political points also accused the APC-led government of being “anti-people”. We sympathise with the opposition party over its inability to confess that the government, through performance, has decimated and deflated the strength of the PDP in Ondo State.

“How can you accuse a government that has improved on healthcare delivery; employed hundreds of workers; pays salaries and pensions; constructs and rehabilitates roads and schools across the three senatorial districts as an anti-people?” the statement queried.
The APC, the statement continued, has a social contract with the good people of Ondo State; to improve on healthcare delivery; promote agricultural revolution; and develop an enviable road network, which is prerequisite for industrial development.
“We, therefore wish to appeal to the opposition parties to upgrade their knowledge of issues, and approach to criticisms. Everything should be done in the overall interest of the State.
“The APC calls for robust and productive criticisms from any political party that cherishes the development and betterment of our dear state. The crux of our party’s efforts is development, in a peaceful atmosphere,” the party emphasised.
Concluding the APC said, “we hesitate to celebrate our applauded leaps in areas where the PDP failed while in the saddle; we choose to be modest about the gains of our sincere efforts to to rebuild the once battered glory of the Sunshine State.”
