IBADAN – The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State has advised followers of the governorship candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, Accord Party and the Labour Party, Senator Teslim Folarin, Senator Rashidi Ladoja and Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala respectively to jump out of what it called their sinking ship ahead of the April 11 governorship election.
In a statement issued here yesterday by its state Director of Publicity and Strategy, Olawale Sadare, the party said that the dismal outing of the PDP ,  Accord and Labour Party candidates had clearly shown them as paperweight politicians.
APC thanked the people of Oyo State for keeping faith with the party as demonstrated by the overwhelming victory of the party during last Saturday’s presidential and National Assembly elections.
It also counseled the gubernatorial candidate of Social Democratic Party (SDP), Mr. Seyi Makinde, to join the winning team in order not to mortgage his political future.
The APC said further that the voting pattern of the last elections had clearly shown their belief and support for the APC-led administration of Governor Abiola Ajimobi as well as their political sophistication.
“ Besides, the outcome of the elections has shown that the people of the state will never again fall for the bait of propaganda, deceit, falsehood, character assassination and reactionary politics for which the leading opposition parties’ candidates are known “.
“ Now that the people of Oyo State have again shown their preference for the APC, we strongly advise the followers of Folarin, Ladoja and Akala to review their stance and jump out of the turbulent ship in order not to sink with them “ .
“ We equally want to counsel the standard bearer of the SDP in the April 11 governorship election, to reflect on his political future which we strongly believe will better be enhanced if he teams up with the APC now, along with his followers ,’’ the party said.
