What Southwest PDP should do to reclaim power – Makinde
The Governor of Oyo State, Engineer Seyi Makinde, on Thursday, called for unity among members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-West geopolitical zone to reclaim its glory.
At a stakeholders’ meeting which held at the Government House, Agodi, Ibadan on Thursday, the governor revealed that he has already dedicated himself to the unity of the party.
In a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Makinde, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, made available to CAPITAL POST, quoted the governor as saying that the unity of the Soutwest PDP is a catalyst for the unity of the country.
He said: “If the South-West can be organised, then Nigeria will be organised. I am not a saint neither am I a devil. What we are dealing with is a game of number and we have to accommodate one another.
“Let us not assume some people are bad, because they have their own roles to play in this too.
“So, I am for unity in the South-West and I have donated myself to pursuing unity for our region.
“The only message from me is that of unity for the South-West zone. I am harping on the unity for our zone, because if we go down the memory lane, we will know that when the South-West is thriving, unified, the entire country is unified and thriving.
“In Oyo State, we have experienced disunity before and we know the implications. After the 2015 general election, we came back together and we said to ourselves that we must not tread on that path again.
“I try to be frontal, because I believe we have to play a different brand of politics.
“When we got to Ekiti, I said to everybody that the two gladiators in the state; Governor Fayose and Senator Biodun Olujimi are the main issues and I have been talking with them.
“I have the pleasure to also let you know that we are planning a unification rally on the 18th of March here in Ibadan and we would be using Mapo Hall.
“At that unification rally, the former governor of Osun State and former national secretary of our great party, Chief Olagunsoye Oyinlola, would be coming back formally into the party.
“So, I am using this opportunity to invite all the stakeholders from all the states in the region to mark that date to celebrate the party.
“Let us send a very strong signal out that the South-West is ready to lead the charge again.”
