The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has blasted the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) over the destruction of the billboards of its governorship candidate, Mr Abdulaziz Olajide Adediran, popularly known as Jandor.
The Publicity Secretary of the party in the state, Hakeem Amode, described the development as an act of intimidation and a sign that the APC was jittery of its impending defeat in the 2023 elections.

The party also urged the youths allegedly being used as hoodlums to destroy the party’s billboards to have a rethink.
But the APC spokesman in the state, Mr Seye Oladejo, described PDP’s allegation as the “usual cheap propaganda from the stable of the opposition party.”
He also said it was “very untrue” that the government stopped outdoor advertisements belonging to the opposition.
He further said, “I guess they’re already preparing an alibi for their usual electoral woes.
“I will advise them to approach the regulatory agency and comply with the stringent rules guiding outdoor advertisement in the state rather than play unnecessarily to the gallery.”
