In the aftermath of the tragic explosions in Bodija, Ibadan, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo state has issued a strong condemnation of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for what they describe as a disgraceful attempt to exploit the calamity for political gain.
The PDP accuses the Oyo APC, especially its Publicity Secretary, Olawale Sadare, of making a callous endeavor to play politics with the lives and suffering of the affected people.
The PDP emphasizes that moments of crisis demand unity and a collective effort to address immediate concerns. They argue that the insinuation by Oyo APC that Governor Seyi Makinde failed in the area of security is unfounded and a deliberate distortion of reality.
The PDP asserts that tragedies of this nature are unpredictable, and it is irresponsible to place blame solely on the state government without concrete evidence.
Commending Governor Seyi Makinde for his steadfast leadership, the PDP highlights the governor’s swift response, effective coordination of rescue efforts, and commitment to providing support to the affected residents. They view these actions as demonstrating a true sense of responsibility and dedication to the well-being of the people.
While acknowledging the call for independent investigations, the PDP raises concerns about the timing and tone of Oyo APC’s demand, suggesting that it is not the time for political posturing but rather a time for unity and support for the affected families.
The PDP, in Oyo state, extends heartfelt condolences to all those affected by this tragedy. They express their thoughts and prayers for the families who have lost loved ones and those facing hardships in the aftermath of the devastating incident.
In a final and strong rebuke, the PDP condemns in the strongest terms Oyo APC’s attempt to politicize the tragedy in Bodija. They call on Oyo APC to rise above petty politics and join hands with the state government in providing relief and assistance to those affected. The PDP describes the act as a new low, even for Oyo APC, and a shameful display
