PDP: Start Mourning Your Loses

AS opposition par- ties celebrate the gale of resignations of political appointees of Governor Olusegun Mimiko, the Ondo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, weekend, advised the parties to start mourning their losses and failure in the coming election. \

It said that “rather than celebrate fabricated and fake resignation letters from former political appointees, who had left the PDP long ago, the political parties should look inward and resolve their own internal crises.”

Some senior special assistants........
, SSA and senior assistants, SA, had within one week resigned and joined the All Progressives Congress sequel to the crisis over the governorship candidate of the ruling PDP in the state. 

Reacting to the comments especially from the main opposition APC, the state Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Banji Okunomo said: “APC should stop celebrating fabricated resignation letters of their members and allies described as appointees of the Governor Olusegun Mimiko.”

 Okunomo said those whose resignation letters are being celebrated on the social media were members and collaborators of the APC. 

“Why should the APC celebrate the defection of people who have been with them long ago but just felt pricked by their conscience and decided to formally quit rather than continue to bite the finger that fed them?” The public should take particular cognisance of the contents of these letters which bear the same subject, grammatical construction, thoughts and circulated by same set of people in the media. This implies that they emanated from and are engineered by one source, the APC.”
