Former National Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and a member of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council, Professor Wale Oladipo, on Thursday assured the party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, of massive votes from the South West zone.
Oladipo, in a press statement, said that Atiku was a tested and trusted presidential material who had been the Vice President to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, a prominent figure from the zone for a period of eight years.
The former PDP scribe added that the wealth of experience gathered during the period coupled with Atiku’s private sector experience, would be an advantage in running an all-inclusive, liberal and God-fearing government after winning the 2019 election.
Oladipo, however, urged the leaders and members of the National Working Committee (NWC), to immediately ensure total reconciliation of aggrieved parties in the entire zone to ensure total victory for the party at the forthcoming general elections in the zone.
He stated that one could not pretend that all is well in the entire zone today going by the happenings in some state chapters of the party in the South West.
“I commend the good work of members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of our Party in their efforts to make the party regain its lost glory and I will also want the body, the Board of Trustees (BOT) and other prominent leaders of the party to ensure a total reconciliation in the zone and others in general in order for it to make a successful outing in all the 2019 general elections.
“This has become necessary so that we can go into the 2019 election battle as a united front. Once this is done, victory is assured. We need total reconciliation and it should be now,” he said.
