APC has Rendered PDP An Opportunity to Regain Power in 2019 with their ‘Unimpressive Performance’ – Mimiko
The Ondo State governor, Olusegun Mimiko, has called on members of the Peoples Democratic Party to take advantage of what he described as the unimpressive performance of the ruling All Progressives Congress to regain power in 2019.
The governor spoke on Saturday at the southwest zonal congress of the party which held at the International Conference Centre in Akure.
He said the future of the PDP depended on the action and inaction of the southwest chapter of the party.
Mr. Mimiko noted that PDP in the zone occupied strategic position in Nigerian political realm.
He said the southwest remained the leading light of politics in Nigeria, calling on the leadership of the party to stand up for what is right and be consistent with the history of “progressivism” that the zone was known for.
He also appealed to the leadership of the party to stand firm because of the tedious task ahead of them, calling on other members of the party to be united and committed to its success in the future elections.
In his remarks, the Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, said the party would do well if all members come together as one.
He also cautioned the judiciary not to allow itself to be used by those who want to cause disunity in the party.
“There are people who cannot win elections, but would want to attain power through the use of the courts,” he noted.
He also accused the federal government of reversing all the achievements of the last administration, arguing that the country’s fortunes had dwindled after the All Progressives Congress, APC, took over.
The congress elected Eddy Olafeso from Ondo State as the national Vice chairman, south west, of the party.
