Ekiti State PDP Condemns Democracy Day Celebrations

The Ekiti State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has denounced the June 12 Celebration and Democracy Day, calling it a mockery of democratic principles and a disregard for the plight of Nigeria’s suffering masses. In a statement issued by its spokesman, Raphael Adeyanju, on Wednesday in Ado Ekiti, the PDP criticized the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for its anti-democratic tendencies, asserting that the APC is not qualified to oversee Democracy Day celebrations in Nigeria.

The PDP argued that the APC’s claim to honor the late Chief Kashimawo Abiola, a key figure in Nigeria’s democratic history, is insincere given the ruling party’s actions. “If the APC claims to celebrate their so-called Democracy Day in honor of Late Chief Kashimawo Abiola, then they have done his memory a great disservice,” Adeyanju stated. He accused the APC of rigging elections at both the national level and in Ekiti State, inflicting suffering on the populace as a consequence.

Adeyanju highlighted the widespread hunger and poverty-induced illnesses afflicting Nigerians since the APC took power, contrasting this with the ruling class’s alleged celebration of ill-gotten wealth. He encouraged voters to remain hopeful, predicting a time of celebration when the PDP reclaims power from the APC.

The PDP spokesman criticized the APC’s policies as deliberately designed to impoverish the people, making them susceptible to electoral manipulation. “Their aim is to impoverish the people, starve them so that the masses can continue to sell their votes to the election riggers and mindless vote buyers,” Adeyanju said.

He called on the people of Ekiti State to support the PDP in its efforts to unseat the ruling APC and restore the state’s former glory experienced under PDP governance. “If we want to restore Ekiti State to its glorious past as experienced under the PDP, we must collectively work towards unseating the present ruling party. This ruling party is so insensitive, detached, and far removed from the aspirations of the common man,” he concluded.
