The state PDP Publicity Secretary, Mr. Chris Nehikhare revealed this while briefing newsmen in Benin today.
According to Chris, the allegations against the PDP and the state government for such a pathetic act is basically frivolous and unsubstantiated.
He added that even PDP was shocked at the destruction of the billboards and they immediately condemned the act.
His words, “It is a known fact that there are factions within the APC in the state. Perhaps the factions could be responsible.
“Let me make it categorically clear that PDP or the state government has no hands in the destruction or damage of the billboards mounted by the APC.
“While we condemn the act, we, however, advise APC to look inwards, as it is common knowledge that the party is seriously divided and populated by factions.
“It is laughable that the APC will contemplate that PDP or its government will pay attention to its posters or billboards without messages and want them destroyed or damaged.”
“We will concentrate on our agenda of ‘resetting’ Edo for a better and brighter tomorrow and not lose sleep over the baseless allegations.”
