Contrary to the unreasonable desperation of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, to smear the image of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, and its candidate, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, the ruling party has no reason to mobilise thugs to venue of the governorship tribunal, in Akure.
The APC in Ondo State parades unequalled disposition to peaceful conducts and approaches to issues, and therefore would not promote nor condone thuggery for whatever gains.
Like other stakeholders in the election petition tribunal, APC stalwarts, in their most decent and dignified manners came to the court, to listen to the proceedings.
They learnt, with dismay avoidable rowdiness among people that were struggling to enter the court premises. To the best of our knowledge, the desperation gave room for clash.
We are of the strong opinion that political parties and other stakeholders should caution their sympathisers against unruly display throughout the legal process, rather than holding APC responsible for such indecent and aggressive attitude.
We wish to affirm our confidence in the tribunal to dispense justice, and would therefore have no reason to encourage violent disposition, under whatever guise. Our candidate is unperturbed about the process.
At the end of the legal exercise, the tribunal decison would be informed by facts, and convictions, and not on account of thuggery and violent displays.
