As candidates and political parties prepare for the last days before Saturday’s governorship and house of assembly elections, the ruling People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in Oyo state has said its Guber candidate, governor Seyi Makinde would convincingly clear the votes of nothing less than 29 Local governments landslide.
The Publicity Secretary of PDP in Oyo state, Akeem Olatunji disclosed this in a press statement today in Ibadan urging the Senator Teslim Folarin of the All-Progressives Congress, APC, to brace up and not delay congratulating governor Makinde upon his declaration as the winner and governor elect.
Olatunji premised this disclosure on the trust and confidence reposed in Governor Makinde by other governorship candidates of other political parties who have adopted and endorsed the incumbent governor for his second term bid.
The re-election bid of Governor Seyi Makinde received another lift as 130 elected councillors and appointed officials across the 33 local governments during the administration of late former Governor Abiola Ajimobi pledge their support for the re-election of Governor Makinde.
The forum led by Adesoji Adesokan mobilized 130 members of the forum to the residence of Governor Seyi Makinde where they made the pledged.
Speaking of why the group adopted the PDP gubernatorial candidate, Adesoji said looking at the reality on ground, the forum decided to form an alliance with the ruling party in the state.
Speaking on behalf of Governor Seyi Makinde, Otunba Seye Famojuro commended the forum for pledging their support for the governor’s re-election just as he assured that their demands will be presented to the Governor.
Meanwhile, the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo state has told voters across the 33 Local Government Councils in the state to disregard the threat of violence allegedly coming from the ruling People’s Democratic party, PDP.
Oyo APC, in a statement issued by its Publicity Secretary, Olawale Sadare, said it had uncovered a fresh plan by the ruling PDP to sponsor some notorious miscreants on a mission to disrupt the peaceful conduct of the election in some parts of Ibadan and other major cities having got the clear signal that their candidates cannot survive defeat this time.
