The Governor of Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke has predicted that the light of victory will prevail in favour of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming governorship elections in Imo, Kogi and Bayelsa states.
Also leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party have expressed optimism that the party will emerge victorious in the upcoming governorship elections in Kogi, Imo and Bayelsa States.
The party leaders spoke at the inauguration of the National Campaign Council for the three states as well as the presentation of certificates of return to the party’s three governorship candidates, in Abuja, on Wednesday.
Delivering an acceptance speech on behalf of the Chairmen of the Governorship campaign councils for the three states, Governor Adeleke said PDP is a widely loved political party that has worked and is still working to satisfy the aspirations of our people.
“PDP is light. We bring true development to the people and the state. In Osun state, we are showing the world what democracy is all about-developmwnt and progress for the state and the people.
“When you vote PDP, you vote light, development and progress. Kogi , Imo and Bayelsa states want light and good governance. We will work hard to deliver our governorship candidates. Light will prevail over darkness in all these forthcoming elections”, Osun Governor said while accepting the nominations to serve on the campaign councils.
Acting National Chairman of the party, Umar Damagun, in his remarks described the inauguration as historic noting that the chances of the party emerging victorious were brighter than ever.
He said, “ We will have Bayelsa, we will have Imo and we will have Kogi. These are PDP states. Somehow, they slipped away but Bayelsa has always had a PDP governor. I want to challenge everyone in this country to look at the states governed by PDP governors viz-a-viz the other parties. We have always excelled.
“Today marks another historic day for the PDP in its political development. As we inaugurate the National Campaign Council for Bayelsa, Imo and Kogi States, I want to say a few things to members of these campaign councils.
“You’ve been carefully selected to go into these states and saddled with the campaigns. We don’t expect less from you because before you were selected, you were found very capable and we expect nothing other than victory.
“You are going in at a time whereby the country as it is, everybody is feeling the burden of the mistakes that have happened in this country.
“What is expected of you is go there and remind them that this is not what we bargained for and that there is a time God in his infinite mercy, always give us to change the course of history, and this is the time.
“To you that are going to Kogi and Imo states, remind them that it has not been like that before they made a mistake to where they are today. There are times and opportunities to change and there’s no better time than now.” OYO NEWS
