Ekiti PDP to take Over in 2022 -SWC

The Ekiti State People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Newly elected State Working Committee (SWC) has assumed leadership on Monday. The party is  boasting of reclaiming the state from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2022 governorship poll.

The Chairman, Hon Bisi Kolawole while Addressing hundreds of party supporters who ushered the new executive into the office at the party’s Secretariat at Ajilosun in Ado Ekiti, on Monday, affirmed that the PDP would end what he called “a reign of terror” being allegedly inflicted on Ekiti by APC in 2022. He said the people were already disillusioned with alleged empty promises being made by the APC- led government in the state and are ready to embrace a change.

Kolawole said the party was lucky to have assembled a team of experienced politicians and technocrats as members of the SWC that won’t betray the trust reposed in them by party admirers.

“This is a correct executive that you have assembled, we are not scavengers. Let me assure you, we are going to be fair and loyal to all members”.

Speaking on the factional crisis currently rocking the party over the just concluded congress, Kowlawole affirmed that the PDP is not divide as affirmed by the APC, whom he said has destroyed the state. He however  promised to reach out to Senator Biodun Olujimi and other aggrieved leaders of her faction to unify the party and reinforce its chances in the coming election.

“We know the people of Ekiti are tired of APC government, we shall deliver our people from them in 2022 by the grace of God. Enough is enough( O to ge) for APC. We shall possess our possession and our possession is PDP producing the next governor of Ekiti.

“We appreciate your confidence in us and we shall right all wrongs. Our party shall reclaim Ekiti and occupy  Oke Ayoba. We pray that Fayemi will end his tenure hail and hearty,  but 2022 will be the end of APC reign in Ekiti..

Kolawole said his antecedents as an experienced politician with a vast understanding of the dynamics of Ekiti politics will help him in making the appropriate rapprochement to the aggrieved members.

“We are going to reconcile all reconcilable because not everybody will come on board, some people will be adamant. We have started the process. To let you know that we are acceptable, some APC leaders have been congratulating me, because I am friendly across party lines. Misunderstanding is not unusual. With what we are putting together, we will bring those that had gone astray back to our party”.

The chairman added that  the party got enmeshed in the present crisis owing to alleged compromise by the immediate past Gboyega Oguntuase-led  SWC . “But the new executive will give APC fire for fire. We have served in government and we know that there is dormancy and lackadaisical attitude in governance. We know what is happening and we will give the APC a run for its money. The PDP  didn’t have a voice under the last executive,  because they compromised, but we won’t compromise like them”.
