No room for PDP to reclaim power, Oyo APC boasts
Akeredolu intensifies campaign for Tinubu
The Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC), Oyo State chapter, Isaac Omodewu, has doubted the chances of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state to take back power in the 2023 election.
He stated this in a chat at the 10th anniversary of Newspeak publications held at International Conference Centre, University of Ibadan (UI), Oyo State.
Omodewu said PDP failed in terms of governance, adding that the former governor of Oyo could not be compared to the present administration.
“How is the education system in Oyo? Security and environment are nothing to write home about. During Abiola Ajimobi’s administration, there was no armed robbery for eight years. But look at what is going on in Oyo now,” he said.
According to Omodewu, it is self-deception for PDP to think of taking back power in the coming general election, despite the issue of education and insecurity in the state.
Oyo Central senatorial candidate, Yunus Akintunde, pledged to continue uplifting people’s standard of living.
In Ondo State, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu is leaving no stone unturned towards ensuring victory for the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, and other candidates of the party in the state.
At Ondo Central senatorial campaign rally in Ondo West Local Council, Akeredolu assured the electorate that Tinubu would win next month’s general election with a wide margin.
According to the governor, Ondo people must vote someone who is capable and competent to fix the country.
He said the large turnout at the party’s rallies would translate to votes.
The governor also canvassed for votes for all other candidates of the party.
Over 350 members of the PDP reportedly defected to the APC at the rally.
Oyo Chairman of the party, Ade Adetimehin, who received the defectors, said the party leaders would soon commence door-to-door campaigns to record landslide victory for the party at the general elections.
He urged Ondo residents to arm themselves with their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to exercise their franchise during the election.
