The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State witnessed a remarkable progress on Wednesday, following the return of former governor of the State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola and ex-Deputy Governor of Oyo State, Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja, to the party
Oyinlola, who addressed thousands of PDP supporters, said that as far as politics is concern in Nigeria right now, people currently at the helms of affairs in the country are not getting it right.
“The only thing they used to deceive us was restructuring, but when its now time to restructure, they said they don’t know anything like restructuring again.
“The current administration were very selfish and corrupt, most of the appointment they made came from the North, when former Minister for Finance, Kemi Adeosun was removed, a Northerner succeeded her, Ayo Oke was replaced by Northerner, also, Peter Dakuku was also replaced by a Northerner.”
Oyinlola reiterated that it is time to restructure politics in southwest for the people of the region to continue to enjoy the dividends of democracy.
“When I told my people that we are going to Ibadan to decamp to PDP, some people asked me why and I told them that Ibadan is the capital city of democracy in South West.”
He, however, called on the party faithful to remain steadfast, saying that the unity of party members must be a priority in order to win more state in the next election.
Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State in his address noted that the coming back of the former members of the party and others is the beginning of unity in southwest PDP, calling on the party faithful to show love and unity to the decampees because everybody is going to gain from the party.
Makinde said, “The leader of the ruling party has said it himself that there was corona virus in their party, but there is no corona virus in our party, those we are welcoming back to our party includes members from African Democratic Congress (ADC), Zenith Labour Party (ZLP), Social Democratic Party (SDP), African Democratic Party (ADP).”
