Osun PDP Determined To Make MKO Int'l Airport, Other Projects Unviable - APC Alleges

The ruling All Progressives Congress in Osun state has accused the major opposition party in the state, Peoples Democratic Party of working to frustrate the efforts of Governor Rauf Aregbesola in ensuring the viability of the Moshood Kasimawo Abiola International Airport project.

APC also alleged that PDP has not been relenting in mischiefs geared towards contributing to the unworkability of the airport project and other projects executed by the present administration in the state.

Amiloaded gathered this through a release made by the party's Directorate of Publicity, Research and Strategy,  signed by its Director, Kunle Oyatomi and made available to the media on Sunday in Osogbo.

The release highlighted that the PDP had successed in poisoning the hearts and minds of the people of the state to the point that "there is a growing attitude of some people whose mentality appears to have been poisoned by the PDP campaign of lies to denigrate, especially the wonderful education infrastructure and road networks which the government of Aregbesola has built."

"Outsiders come to Osun and marvel in admiration at these structures. But lies look away from them in scorn; and some of those people are from the so-called enlightened communities in the state."

The party also drew the public attention to alleged deliberate falsehood of the PDP over the MKO Abiola International Airport facility that is being constructed under a concessionary business deal with significant Turkish government firm.

According to the APC, the opposition party is targetting to disable the project by labelling it 'inflated contract arrangement', which it would abrogate and renegotiate, should it ever come to power in the state.

The All Progressives Congress called on all people of goodwill who love the State of Osun to join the party in a massive drive to inform and educate people of the state about the danger of fake news, which is poised towards destroying everything good that has happened in the state since 2010.

The statement reads further, "We are raising awareness that so much lies, generated by PDP, and regularly circulated in the traditional, social and fake news media outlets, have done serious damage to people's perception that some are now looking at a beauty and calling it ugliness.

"They continue, in spite of what they are looking at, to rile against the governor that people of Osun do not need state of the art schools; they would rather prefer the ramshackle schools that PDP left in 2010 to be renovated just as the PDP had been advocating'.

"But here are facts: It is a concessionaire arrangement which wont cost Osun government one naira in actual construction funding.

"Whatever the cost, it's the concessionaire's business to find the cost to construct the airport. Ignorance and fake news peddling are dangerous poison which the PDP and a few others are spreading in Osun.

" They will not only destabilise, overheat and eventually destroy the state, they are capable of affecting the mentality of our people negatively that they might be unable to distinguish lies from truth, the APC said.

'Imagine the attempt to derail the Airport project.

"First of its kind in Nigeria as cargo, regular airport,  with hanger facility for maintenance of aircraft. The project is significant for local and international business contact, and job creation for the state.

"You begin to wonder why any sane person or party would want to destroy these projects if not for sheer  wickedness and a tendency for kleptocracy which is the trademark of Osun PDP."

The APC therefore appealed to people of goodwill in the state to help educate and properly inform other citizens before PDP alleged lies and fake news syndrome would disillusion them.
