Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state has charged leaders and members of the Ondo state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to remain united to face future electoral challenges.
The governor said the party can only achieve viability and guaranteed electoral successes if members closed ranks and work solely to form the next government.
This was contained in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary Mr Taiwo Adisa, which also stated that Makinde gave the charge at the second anniversary of Ondo state PDP Support Group (PSG) held in Akure, the state capital.
Governor Makinde, who was represented by his Deputy Chief of Staff, Mr Abdul Mojeed Mogbonjubola, stated that he was ready to join hands with the state chapter of the party to achieve the needed unity.
He recalled that Ondo state used to be one of the strongholds of the PDP in the South-West, but regretted that seems not to be the case, adding that without unity of purpose, the target of electoral success could be a mirage.
He stated that all hands aimed at rebuilding the party must be on deck ahead of the future challenges.
In his speech, the coordinator of the group, Hon Bode Obanla, said that the gathering was to discuss the fortunes of the party with all eyes focused on future challenges.
According to him, the gathering was also aimed at galvanising members of the group to see the need of working together to ensure success for the party in its future elections.
“But we have succeeded where many have failed and achieved unprecedented unity for our party in a period of war. That, once again, proved that no single political party has the internal cohesive structure like the PDP”, Obanla said.
Obanla encouraged PDP faithful to remain loyal to the party and to shun all divisive antics capable of destroying the party.
Other PDP chieftains who were at the programme include the State Elders’ Committee chairman, Dr Omotayo Dairo, BoT member, Chief Segun Adegoke, state party deputy chairman, Hon Fatai Adams and a number of gubernatorial aspirants for next year’s election.
A lecture with the theme “PDP: Harnessing the trust of the people,” was delivered by Chief Tokunbo Modupe, the MD/CEO TPT International.
