PDP Politicizing #ENDSARS Protest - APC Cries Out

PDP Politicizing #ENDSARS Protest - APC Cries Out

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of politicising the #ENDSARS protest.

Making this allegation in a statement by Seye Oladejo, the Party's publicity secretary in Lagos, APC accused PDP of taking advantage of the spate of protest ahead of the upcoming by-election in the state.

APC further revealed that there was an ongoing plot to attack protesters in Kosofe Local Government area of Lagos. 

“Our attention has been drawn to the needless and irresponsible politicizing of the #EndSARS nationwide protest by the opposition PDP.

“The attempt in the social media, sponsored by the opposition PDP, to hold the state government responsible is, to say the least, the height of bitter politics.

“However, our investigation has revealed that the PDP would like to take advantage of the spate of protest to cause mayhem because of the October by-elections in the Lagos East Senatorial District.

“Our intelligence has revealed the plans to unleash further attacks on the protesters, especially in the Kosofe Local Government in the days ahead.

“As the ruling party, we are mindful of our role to support the government especially as regards the citizens' rights and the delivery of our electoral promises,” Oladejo said.

Following the report of attacks on #ENDSARS protesters in Lagos on Thursday, the PDP gave the Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu 24 hours to fish out the hoodlums that tried attacking protesters at the Alausa axis of Lagos.
