The Delta APC Campaign Organisation has accused the governing People’s Democratic Party (PDP) of destroying billboards belonging to its candidate in the March 11, 2023 governorship poll, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, in parts of the State.
It accused some loyalists allegedly sponsored by the PDP and its candidate, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori of being responsible for the undemocratic, unsportsmanly acts.
A statement on Wednesday by the Director, Communications and Media Strategy, Ima Niboro, pointed out that the campaign organisation would officially write the State Police Command on the ugly development.
The former Presidential Spokesman called on security agencies to bring to book those behind the destruction of its bill boards erected at some strategic locations, especially in Uvwie Local Government Area and Osubi, Okpe Local Government Area of the State.
“It is instructive to note that Okpe is the council area of the PDP governorship candidate and Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori. And despite these unprovoked attacks, billboards of Oborevwori are still standing in Orogun – the hometown of Senator Omo-Agege.
“There are also countless billboards of Sheriff in Ughelli North LGA, our principal’s council area. We will never give an eye-for-an-eye because Obarisi Omo-Agege respects dissenting opinions, no matter how small. It is not in our character to descend to their level. When they go low, we go high.
“This is not the first time our billboards are destroyed, defaced or damaged. But on each occasion, our campaign organisation replaced them. However, they must realise that nobody has monopoly of violence.
“Sheriff must call his loyalists to order. They must run a clean campaign, one that is issue-based and constructively engaging, and refrain from acts capable of breaching public peace,” he said.
