The Governor-elect of Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke has said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will win next year’s governorship election in Ogun State.
Adeleke, who was the PDP candidate in the July 16 Osun poll, defeated the sitting governor and candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Gboyega Oyetola, by 28,344 votes.
Speaking in Abeokuta on Friday at a reception organised by the PDP for its new members, Adeleke said Governor Dapo Abiodun would get the “Osun treatment” next year.
The new members were decampees from the APC, Labour Party (LP), Allied Peoples Movement (APM), Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), Social Democratic Party (SDP) and the African Democratic Congress (ADC).
The decampees were received at the party secretariat in Abeokuta, Ogun state capital, by the Chairman of PDP, Hon. Sikirulai Ogundele, Adebutu and other zonal leaders of the party in the state.
Addressing the gathering, the Governor – elect who was represented by the former South West Secretary of the party, Reverend Bunmi Jenyo, said PDP had exposed APC’s electoral fraud in Osun, insisting that the winning strategy would be replicated in Ogun.
He added that after the PDP’s Osun victory, the ruling party still went to the Tribunal, but expressed confidence that he would be victorious.
Adeleke said “Like we did in Osun, we are going to repeat the feat in Ogun state. We have exposed all their electoral fraud. We bringing to Ogun state the winning strategy.
“Because we have defeated them in Osun they are still embittered, they went to the Tribunal, but we will still defeat them again.
“They did one thing that we are going to be ready for them in Ogun, they went and hacked the server. They are rogues, APC (members) are rogues, from head to toe and we are going to win them. We won them in Osun and we are going to win in Ogun state,” he added.
Adeleke described the PDP governorship candidate, Ladi Adebutu and his running mate, Adekunle Akinlade, as a perfect match capable of unseating the ruling party.
In his remarks, Adebutu lamented the spate of insecurity, unemployment, kidnappings, bad roads, and lack of quality healthcare services in the state.
He described PDP as the biblical Noah’s ark that would take Ogun residents to the promise land in 2023.
He assured the decampees of fairness, saying “everyone has equal rights in this party and our Permanent Voters Card (PVC) is our way to freedom”.
“We all know that all is not well with governance in Ogun state. Don’t be deceived by this government, we are going to give them the Osun treatment,” Adebutu said.
In his remarks, former Deputy Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Tola Banjo who led defectors from former Governor Ibikunle Amosun’s camp, said “Be assured that after sweeping for a long time, we are now under umbrella.You won’t regret this. With the development, Dapo will be sacked in 2023.” (Daily Trust)
