Ogun PDP governorship candidate solicits support of co-contestants during primaries


The Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun , Hon. Ladi Adebutu has urged aspirants who lost the party’s primary election to join him on a mission to take over the administration of the state from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Adebutu extended a hand of fellowship to the other aspirants when the party presented Certificate of Return to State and National Assembly candidate who emerged on the platform on the party at the party secretariat in Abeokuta.

The National Working Committee (NWC) of PDP had earlier this week presented a certificate of return to Adebutu, thereby recognising him as the candidate of the party in the state.

Adebutu appealed to his contenders and other aspirants who lost out in the primaries to bury the hatchet and work together with him to improve the chances of the party at reclaiming the state in the 2023 general election.

The former house of representatives member insisted that he was determined at fostering unity in the party by working with all the aggrieved members.

He explained that a divided party would not win at the general election.

The PDP candidate, therefore, urged the party to call a meeting of all those who lost the primaries to work together for the good of the party.

” I am determined to bring everybody onboard because those that have won the primaries, not because they are the best and not because they have the total number of votes, so those that lost out must not be left behind.

” That is why am determined to always carry everybody along and I think that is the beauty of PDP.

“We are not known for imposing. I think we have successfully managed well democratically and we are still managing the situation.

“We must endeavor to have a big happy family so that we can face the challenges at hand.

” We recognised that we are still in the opposition and the work at hand is extensive and we are hoping to take over power from them come 2023,” he said.
