APC liars and propagandists are at their trade again

Asue Ighodalo

By George Etakibuebu

An African adage says “No man ever acknowledges that his opponent’s hunting dog is capable of killing a huge grasscutter (a delicious animal).” It is, therefore, not surprising that All Progressives Congress (APC) children of anger, who go by the moniker of Akpakomiza Media Strikers (what a name) whose stock in trade is nothing other than peddle lies and propaganda, are at it again.

Still reeling from the debilitating fallout of their principal, Senator Monday Okpebholo’s disastrous outing with Akoko-Edo Development Association, where he was caught pants down “giraffing” what to say, and even at that still made a very poor and calamitous showing of it, the APC urchins managed to crawl out of their hiding on Friday afternoon with their usual lies and propaganda.

High-flying Dr Asue Ighodalo, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the September 21 governorship election, had stormed Uwesan, Esan Central Local Government Area, where a mammoth crowd of organic supporters in a carnival-like manner received him. Unable to stomach the spontaneous and overwhelmingly successful endorsement of Ighodalo in Okpebholo’s community, the e-rats went to town with their outlandish lie and propaganda that Hon Paul Iyoha, Executive Chairman of Esan Central Local Government Council, hired the huge and intimidating crowd that warmly and enthusiastically welcomed Ighodalo to the community. How many people can one hire? How do you hire that huge number of enthusiastic crowds? This is another lie from the pit of hell. And it is typical of the APC in the state. I enjoin the good people of Edo to disregard their funny story. They have nothing to offer.

For the APC and Akpakomiza Media Strikers, it is one day, one lie and one propaganda. It is their stock in trade. They are children of Joseph Goebbels, the Propagandist in Chief of Nazi Germany during the 2nd World War. Watch out, they have another lie and propaganda well packaged for tomorrow. For them, they are not concerned with their incompetent principal, who despite being coached on what to say during a virtual interactive session, still managed to mess up spectacularly.

I wish to remind these people who know nothing other than peddling lies, that Asue Ighodalo is an Edo Project. His candidacy is gaining wide acceptance on a daily basis and it will continue in the weeks and months to come.

He has made it clear that his vision is to make Edo State a first world sub-national state in Nigeria and he will not be distracted by some rogue and half-baked peddlers of lies and propaganda who are pretending to be journalists.
