Insecurity: Ekiti PDP, APC in war of words

The two Major political parties in Ekiti State on Tuesday engaged each others in war of words over the state of security in the state.
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) had earlier accused the All Progressives Congress-led government in the state of being behind the incessant security breach in the state.
But the APC in a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Mr Ade Ajayi, said “we read with dismay the recent tirade by the Ekiti State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party.
“The statement credited to the PDP containing defamatory allegations aimed at causing disaffection for the person of Dr. Kayode Fayemi, and the office of the Governor of Ekiti State, based on the challenge of insecurity we are currently dealing with in Ekiti and the country at large.
“We want to put the record straight, Governor Fayemi was central to the creation of the Western Nigeria Security Network (codenamed Operation Amotekun) and continues in the bid to improve their operational effectiveness.
‘At the state level, through the Ekiti State Security Council, Governor Fayemi and other stakeholders have carried out several wholistic and integrated interventions at the strategic and tactical levels to address insecurity”
In a reaction, the State Publicity Secretary PDP, Raphael Adeyanju, said the APC should just accept the notorious fact that the ruling party has failed the nation on the issue of security.
The opposition said: “This is a very laughable allegation. How can a failed ruling party accused us of sponsoring Kidnappings and killings?
“They have killed , maimed and committed all sorts of atrocities, which we have exposed and which they have not found any meaningful explanation for. Any time you challenge them ,they always result to insults, Ekiti people know the difference between the two parties.
“The APC should try to address all the issues we have been raising and stop all these dirty tricks. We have only asked them to fulfill their electoral promises, which they have failed to do. When they came, they promised to turn the economy around, but instead ,they have destroyed everything.
“On security, they have failed completely and we stand on our point. If they are not, let them convinced Nigerians through their actions”, the party stated.
