A political group, the Enugu Youth Coalition has enjoined APC in the state to desist from telling lies that the state government has denied the opposition the right to mount billboards.
The group in a statement on Wednesday issued to the press and signed by its
National Coordinator, Dr. Edwin Obune, stated that the allegation that APC members in the state are denied from mounting billboards is untrue.
It stated: “From our inquiry, we observed that such denial does not exist as the state is open to all political activities in the state without exception to any party.
“If the state government could not deny APC access to broadcasting stations owned by the state where their campaign messages are reaching the good people of the state and beyond; is it mounting of billboards where only a handful of people can see it that the state will deny them access? What a baloney?
“Hence, we view the latest barefaced lies by the APC members in Enugu as another attempt to lie against the state government so as to draw public sympathy when there is nothing sympathetic in their claims.”
The group further enjoined the party to imbibe an “effective and efficient election campaigns instead of pushing out fake and cheap lies and propaganda against the state government”.
