National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Kola Ologbondiyan has been giving a pat on the back for consistently informing Nigerians about the multifaceted misinformation, propaganda, falsehood and other numerous failures of the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The commendation is contained in a statement made by the Executive Assistant to the Governor of Delta State on Communications; Dr Fred Oghenesivbe described Ologbondiyan as a “communication resource person of no mean repute, a proactive publicity craftsman with uncommon passion for strategic political communication laced with simplicity of words making it easy for decoding and quick understanding.”
Oghenesivbe who doubles as the Convener of The Eagles Group for Okowa 2019 (TEEWGO) said PDP under its incumbent National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus has demonstrated reasonable capacity and leadership potentials capable of aborting the APC’s ill-conceived second term agenda for a President and party that has become analogue in a digital 21st century.
“The visionless APC government is further bedeviled by petty squabbles among the various cabals, internal political conflicts capable of deepening the regrettable acute poverty, accelerated hunger and gross system failure that may take 50 years to correct, which is why APC and Buhari must be voted out of power in 2019, to avoid further socioeconomic disasters.
“It is therefore heartwarming that Kola Ologbonduyan came on board at a time our great party, PDP, was in dare need of a highly proactive, dogged and focused spokesperson with the required intellectual capacity to trade tackles with the propaganda and misinformation machinery of the APC headed by Alhaji Lai Mohammed, a man well known for double-speaking on socioeconomic issues.
“It is therefore, very important that all State Publicity Secretaries of PDP must of a necessity emulate the good works of the national publicity Secretary by exposing the failures of the APC government in their respective states on a regular basis; so that those uninformed Nigerians becomes well informed and are able to make wise choices come 2019.
“State Publicity Secretaries should have planned publicity strategies capable of putting the opposition or the government in power on the hot seat consistently; especially at this material time that Nigerians need to know the fake, deceitful and unfulfilled promises of the APC national government and the moribund Buhari administration.
“I humbly commend our highly effective National Publicity Secretary, Ologbondiyan for pointing the way forward for the rest of us; both party publicity Secretaries, media and communication persons serving in all PDP controlled States and at party levels.
“All hands must, therefore, be on deck to uproot the common enemy of Nigerians, the APC and Buhari administration that brought pains, agonies, divisive leadership, ethnic and tribal colouration to governance and national politics,” Oghenesivbe added.
