The Delta State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Council has mocked the APC in the state over its claim that the diversion of roads away from the Warri Central Stadium on the day of its state flag-off was to sabotage the rally.
Affirming that the closure of roads would not affect those going to the stadium on the proposed day, the PDP said the alarm raised by the APC was reflective of the fact that the leaders of the party in the state do not know Warri.
In the statement issued by Dr. Ifeanyi Osuoza, Deputy Director, Media and Publicity Committee, Delta PDP, the party said:
Dr. Osuoza’s Release reads: “The Delta State PDP is quite astonished by the magnitude of ignorance exhibited by the APC in its Press Release, over a simple matter like knowing the regular routes, which the original citizens and indigenes of the bubbling Warri metropolis, ply every day to eke out their daily bread and especially those leading to the famous and very popular Warri Township Stadium.
“Of course, we understand their navigational plight and confusion, since Warri is not Orogun or Abuja, where those who lead and speak for Delta APC are more familiar with. But we are left wondering, how a party which does not even know the routes leading to Warri Township Stadium, in a City it claims is its stronghold, can not know the routes, both land and waterways, leading to the grassroots of Delta State, where it hopes to campaign to Deltans.
“We pray they don’t get lost, otherwise, they will blame the PDP, as usual, for their ignorance.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the Warri South Council Chairman, Dr. Michael Tidi, never ordered the closure of any route leading to the Warri Township Stadium. The Statement by the Council Chairman was very clear on the routes to be temporarily closed and even more explicit on the alternative routes provided for motorists and commuters to utilize during the temporary closure.
“A follow-up Statement by Francis Sadhere, Special Assistant to the Warri South Council Chairman on Media, further explained that, “Those who are familiar with Warri know that the roads mentioned above have nothing to do with routes leading to the Warri Township Stadium” and in the case of Ubeji Roundabout, it will be closed between 7.00 a.m. and 9.00 a.m. Motorists plying the route should now use the popular Elizabeth Close.
