PDP stalwarts optimistic of taking over government, supporters take victory bath


Eddy Olafeso

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Vice Chairman (Southwest), Eddy Olafeso, has expressed optimism that based on Nigerians’ assessment of the current administration’s performance for the past three years, they have decided to take the country back in the coming election.

Olafeso and other party bigwigs spoke yesterday in Lagos during a colloquium themed ‘Atiku: A Defining Paradigm’.He said that the present administration had not been able to fulfil three solid promises it made to Nigerians, which include security, buoyant economy and fighting corruption.

Today, insecurity in Nigeria is worrisome and the country is still waiting for the arrival of Leah Sharibu that President Buhari promised Nigerians he would bring back, he said, asserting that like what happened in Kano during PDP presidential campaign and other states, Nigerians are in high spirit for a change.

Former acting national secretary of PDP and a member of the Board of Trustees (BoT), Dr. Charles Akintoye, advised Nigerians to vote with conscience and not be in a hurry to scrutinise everything.

Meanwhile, five days to the elections, thousands of PDP supporters were seen taking ‘victory bath’ in anticipation of the party’s triumph on Saturday.They were sighted yesterday in Ibadan in the company of the Oyo State governorship candidate, Seyi Makinde.

Makinde, alongside his campaign team, once again, traversed Ibadan to create a final and fresh impression on the minds of the people.Without altering any word, he emerged through the roof of a convertible sport utility vehicle (SUV) moving from Iwo road to Agodi gate and to Mapo. While he was greeting the people of Ibadan with a wave of hand, his supporters were celebrating with water.One of the campaigners claimed that the water was their sign of cleansing and victory at the elections.
