The PDP has picked Senate President Bukola Saraki to lead its National Campaign Committee to face Kano Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje ‘s APC committee for Osun governorship election.

PDP on Monday in Abuja urged the campaign committee to do everything within the law to win the Sept. 22 governorship election in Osun just as the All Progressive Congress (APC) earlier tasked its 63-member Campaign Council.

National Chairman of PDP, Mr Uche Secondus, gave the charge when he inaugurated the party’s National Campaign Committee for the election.

Secondus said that members of the committee were carefully nominated because of the importance of Osun to the PDP.

Secondus said that the committee had the responsibility to augment all activities of campaign and reach out to all the critical stakeholders.

In his response, Saraki promised that the committee would ensure that the PDP won the Osun poll.

He said that the election was important because PDP had lost two governorship elections in the South-West – Ekiti and Ondo.

“We must win Osun to prove that Osun is the home ground of the PDP. This is a state where salaries are not being paid,’’ he said.

Meanwhile, The All Progressives Congress (APC) had last week constituted a 63 Campaign Council made up of 14 governors, including Governor Gnaduje of Kano State and 8 Ministers and 41 other members of the National Assembly and seasoned politicians to spearhead the party’s campaign for the governorship election in Osun State.

The National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, said the task before the, was to ensure that the APC retain the governorship seat in Osun state by working with party leaders in the state and mobilizing the people to vote massively the APC candidate.

Oshiomhole said “many of you present here have been very much involved in helping to provide leadership in most of the campaigns that we have had in recent times after the last general elections. (NAN)
