The Labour Party (LP) National Chairman on Mobilisation, Recruitment  Committee, Dr. Oghogho Okundaye has condemned in strong terms the recent pulling down billboards of the Edo State LP candidate, Barr. Olumide Osaigbovo Akpata in some parts of Benin metropolis.

Dr. Okundaye in a statement in Benin City said that such act is barbaric and not healthy for democratic processes of the state and is capable of causing disorder which will paint the state in bad light.

The National Chairman on Mobilisation, Recruitment chairman said it was shocking to see that such backward development tendency is been carried out in Edo State simply because there is a forthcoming election on 21st September.

He said  in any contest it’s advisable to sell your candidate to the people instead of tempering with billboards of a leading candidate an indication that others have given up.

Dr. Okundaye who emphasised that who God has ordained no man can pull down said the most disgusting aspect is to see that the PDP led government of Edo State are allegedly behind it, a situation that calls for concern.

According to him, Labour Party is a non violent platform however does not mean they can be taken for granted and warned those behind the dastardly act to desist from it as the election is one for uprightness and not “Agberoism”.

On the issue of a caretaker committee in Edo State Labour Party, Dr. Oghogho Okundaye took a swipe on the national chairman of the party Barr. Julius Abure saying it is unconstitutional, illegal and undemocratic.

He however said that such cannot stand in Edo and wonder why now especially when there is a very important election to be held in the State.

Okundaye said machinery has already been put in place to resolve all contending issues in order not to jeopardise their chances of victory in the September 21 governorship election.
