Capitalize On APC’s ‘Unimpressive’ Performance To Reclaim Power In 2019, Mimiko Charges PDP Faithful

Olusegun MimikoGovernor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State has called on members of the Peoples Democratic Party to take advantage of what he described as the unimpressive performance of the governing All Progressives Congress to regain power at the centre in 2019.
Mimiko gave the charge at the weekend during the southwest zonal congress of the party which held at the International Conference Centre aka The Dome, in Akure, the state capital.
The governor stressed that the future of the PDP depended on the action and inaction of the southwest chapter of the party.
Mr. Mimiko noted that PDP in the zone occupied strategic position in Nigerian political realm.
Mimiko, who is Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum, maintained that the southwest remained the leading light of politics in Nigeria, calling on the leadership of the party to stand up for what is right and be consistent with the history of “progressivism” that the zone was known for.
He also appealed to the leadership of the party to stand firm because of the tedious task ahead of them, calling on other members of the party to be united and committed to its success in future elections.
In his remarks, Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, said the party would do well if all members come together as one.
This is just as he cautioned the judiciary against allowing itself to be used by those he said want to cause disunity in the party.
“There are people who cannot win elections, but would want to attain power through the use of the courts”, he noted.
Fayose also accused the federal government of reversing all the achievements of the last administration, arguing that the country’s fortunes had dwindled after the APC took over almost a year ago.
Our correspondent reports that the congress elected Eddy Olafeso from Ondo State as the national Vice chairman, south west, of the party.
