Asserting that defeat lies in store for him, much like in Osun State, opposition parties in Ogun State have requested that Governor Dapo Abiodun begin composing his handover notes.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Sunday, July 17, claimed it will mobilise its members and supporters; particularly to guarantee that Abiodun gets defeated.
This was contained in a statement released by its spokesman, Bankole Akinloye.
Therefore, Akinloye urged party members to reaffirm their dedication to winning the state’s governorship election in 2023.
He said Ademola Adeleke’s victory “remains a symbolic attestation to the fact that no amount of money is big enough to buy a determined mind.
”We urge all members of our great party to work in synergy with all relevant tendencies and renew their commitment to the cause of liberating the good people of Ogun State who have continually suffered all manners of irresponsibility and avoidable agony, misery, and deaths under the perfidious watch of Prince Dapo Abiodun and his sinking ship, the rudderless APC.”
Also, the NNPP State Chairman, Oginni Olaposi, told Gov Abiodun to; “as a matter of urgency start the writing of his handover notes”; noting that the fall of an incumbent governor of APC was a bad omen for Abiodun, hence; “It’s the end of the road for APC election manipulations and Abracadabra.”
Similarly, the Lagos State chapter of the PDP has asked Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to start preparing his handover notes; notably ahead of the 2023 governorship election in the state.
The PDP Publicity Secretary in the state, Hon Hakeem Amode, said this in a statement; while defending the choice of Funke Akindele as the party’s deputy governorship candidate in the state.
He said, “We would like to inform the APC that the table has turned, Lagos State and the good people living therein are tired of the few gathering at their lord’s table to determine the life and living standard of the people of the state.
“We hereby urge the party to see the handwriting on the wall and start to prepare the handing over note.
”We are not surprised that the APC as a party is not finding it easy in its illusive political comfort zone. But we are well aware of their antics and underhand in the previous elections…We are using this opportunity to warn the party to desist from its character assassination; divide and rule tactics and politics of bitterness which have remained the roots of their political gain.”
