The National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu says the PDP will produce the next governor of Ogun State in 2023.
He said this on Saturday while addressing mammoth PDP members and chieftains at the party secretariat in Abeokuta.
The chairman said past record of the party indicated that the PDP had produced the first PDP president in 1999 who hails from Ogun State, “the state remains a PDP state.”
He told the state Governor, Dapo Abiodun and the All Progressives Congress to prepare to leave the government for the PDP in 2023.
Ayu was flanked by members of the PDP National Working Committee, former Governors, the leader of Ogun PDP, Oladipupo Adebutu, the State Chairman, Sikirullahi Ogundele among others.
The Chairman said the APC governments both at the Federal and the states have made lives difficult for Nigerians adding “that it is time to vote the party out of power.”
Ayu, who later held a close door-meeting with a former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, said he would be returning to Ogun to mobilise PDP members across all levels, as part of efforts to unseat APC in 2023.
He said “I only came to greet my boss and our father, President Obasanjo. I didn’t know that all my people are here. I will come back to mobilise the people of Ogun State in every ward, in every Local Government because 2023 we shall produce a PDP governor in Ogun State…after which we shall produce a PDP president who will make things better for you.”
Also speaking, Adebutu, who is PDP governorship aspirant, said he his committed to the development of Ogun State, but called for cooperation and support.
He said “I am sacrificing my comfort for you not because I need something to eat, but I want to create a better tomorrow for you. I will continue to sacrifice for you and I bring to you, this sacrifice and this solution. Let us be together. Do you agree with me?
The State Chairman of PDP, Sikirullahi Ogundele noted that “PDP is well positioned to unseat the APC-led government in the state in 2023.
Ogundele claimed the state under Governor Dapo Abiodun has done “nothing to deserve re-election come 2023.”
