Published

on

The People’s Democratic Party’s  (PDP) candidate for the Idanre/Ifedore, Ondo state’s House of Representatives seat, Hon. Kayode Akinmade has described the success of the party’s recently concluded convention in Port Harcourt as a  significant sign of good things to happen to “our great party and an instructive signal and great foundation for more successes”

In his congratulatory message to the leadership of the party and members of the convention committee, made available to Thepage,  Akinmade said the successful outcome of the convention which produced former Vice president Atiku Abubarka as its presidential candidate  “is a clear indication, that  the party is  ready more than ever before, to take its rightful place in the nation’s polity.

According to Akinmade ” all contestants at the just concluded convention demonstrated their readiness to present a united and determined party to the people ahead of the 2019 general elections”

This he said, will also go a long way in demonstrating before the people that, the PDP   is ready  to restore the fortunes of the country and set it, once again, on the path of glory.

The successful Journalist and image manager who said he ventured into politics to serve,  mentioned  in his message that  at the convention, “I saw committed and loyal party men who aspired for the ticket to contest election for our nation’s number one political office, not for selfish reasons, but for the opportunity to serve.

“This gladdens my heart and gives me the confidence that the aspirants commitment and selflessness won’t go unnoticed by the people and I sincerely believe this will count for gain for us at the general elections in 2019”

While congratulating  the national chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus on the successful organisation of the party’s National Convention, Akinmade also praised
the party members and delegates from the 36 states of the federation including FCT for conducting themselves in a peaceful and democratic manner and freely electing their choice aspirant during the convention.

The former Commissioner for Information who implored fellow party members not to relent on  the “self  and corporate reformations” being witnessed in  the party, said, he has further been inspired by the conduct of members at the convention,    to be a good ambassador of the party  as a   candidate to the Idanre/ Ifedore constituency seat in the House of Representatives and “by the grace of God and the assured mandate of my people, a working and reliable representative of my people  at the House of Representatives, to the glory of God and our great party”.

Crisis: Ogun PDP Factions Reunite, Vow To Reclaim Ogun

Published

on

PDP

The warring factions of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun State led by the late Senator Buruji Kashamu and a former House of Representatives, Oladipupo Adebutu, have resolved their differences and reunited.

 

 

After over a decade of crisis and court orders, loyalists of both Kashamu and Adebutu who are the two major factions on Wednesday, reunited and bowed to reclaim the state in the coming 2023 elections.

 

 

The factions met during a reunion meeting held at the party secretariat in Abeokuta.

 

 

The leaders of the two factions resolved to work together towards strengthening the party for the 2023 elections.

 

 

Leading the Kashamu faction, Segun Seriki, declared that the party will henceforth operate under Sikirullahi Ogundele-led executive of the PDP, thereby collapsing the other faction which paraded Samson Bamgbose as the Chairman.

 

 

He expressed regret that the crisis had robbed off PDP the chances of returning to power since 2011 when the party was defeated upon expiration of Gbenga Daniel’s tenure.

 

 

Seriki called on party members to be committed to the reunion and work towards rebuilding the party for victory in the 2023 election.

 

Bamgbose applauded the leaders of the party for achieving reconciliation of the warring factions of the PDP.

 

He asked the PDP leaders and supporters to be ready for the battle to unseat the ruling party in 2023.

 

He said “We are going to the battlefront. We must be ready and win.”

 

The party Chairman, Sikirullahi Ogundele, said the reunion marked the beginning of a new relationship that would drive the party to power in 2023.

 

 

He said, “I am happy that the PDP of 2003 is now back. We are now together in harmony, looking forward to having a united PDP in Ogun State.

 

 

“We are going to get back our mandate from the misrule of the APC, a party that has no blueprint.

 

 

“They just wake up in the morning and embark on any project that comes to their head. They give water or road where not needed.

 

The PDP is the best party so far and we are winning in 2023.”

 

A former spokesperson to former presidents Olusegun Obasanjo, and Goodluck Jonathan, Doyin Okupe, expressed happiness over the reunion of the factions.

 

 

Okupe, however, cautioned leaders in the party that “there will still be a fight, there cannot be equality. Disagreement is not disloyalty, if we don’t disagree, we can’t agree to move forward. There is a way to go about everything.”

 

 

Adebutu in his remarks enjoined party members to work in harmony, adding that the party has come as the alternative choice.

 

 

He said, “The people of Ogun State need a platform to rescue them, the PDP has come to rescue Ogun residents and Nigerians from the sufferings by the APC.”

Bisoye Fagade Takes Lagelu By Storm, Unfolds Plans For Oyo Development

Lagelu

Abisoye Fagade, the 47-year-old Nigerian marketing communication professional, is a man of many parts.

 

 

And if words on the streets of Ibadan are anything to go by, Fagade has his eyes fixed on two goals, his hospitality outfit, and politics. While his hospitality outfit, Alexia’s Place, situated in a serene environment in the Opebi area of Ikeja has continued to grow steam since its inception, the founder and CEO of Sodium Brand Solutions has been closing ranks in the Oyo state All Progressive Congress.

 

 

Fagade became popular in Oyo state politics when he made his entrance many years ago with the slogan, Oyo si ma dun (Oyo will be great) and now, the astute professional seems ready to return to politics.

 

 

To show he has his eyes fixed on the ball, Fagade was recently spotted in the Lagelu area of Oyo state where he began the process of reincarnating Lagelu in Oyo State politics. Fagade returned to his constituency to listen to his constituents and begin strategy towards taking Oyo state to an enviable height.

 

 

Speaking at a grand reception organised in his honour by the APC leadership of the party, Fagade said, “I must state here that I have personally taken up the gauntlet to join other well-meaning citizens in promoting the ideas of Progressive politics which we are known for in this part of the country.

 

The project has since commenced as we have done a lot to alleviate the suffering of the people, especially at the grassroots through the ‘Oyo Si Maa Dun’ Foundation.

 

 

I’m using this avenue to prepare our minds and encourage all of us to remain optimistic about the future of our dear state and that of our fatherland- Nigeria.

Jerry Gana Laments As He Returns To PDP After 3 Years

Published

Jerry Gana

Former Minister of Information, Professor Jerry Gana, has alleged that there is no government in Nigeria.

 

Gana said this when he, alongside many of his supporters, returned the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday.

 

 

In March 2018, Gana, a member of the Board of Trustees of the PDP, had dumped the party for the Social Democratic Party.
But addressing the party members in Bida, Niger State, during a reception to mark his return to the party, Gana said the country is nose-diving and needs urgent rescue.

 

 

Prof. Gana said, “Today is not a day for lecture. It is not a day for campaigns. We just want to rejoice that we are back together solidly; and we are going to work together solidly, that we are going to work together effectively, that we are going to campaign powerfully.

 

“I tell you, we are going to go around strategically, in such a way that the All Progressives Congress (APC) so called government, whether in Niger state; is there a Government in Niger State? Because many people are not aware, or at the Centre? At federal level, we don’t even have a Government.”

 

Earlier, Party leaders from across the three Senatorial zones assured the party faithful that the PDP is ready to take over Niger and salvage it from the “deflated state that it is under the ruling APC”
