Okowa and Atiku

No fewer than 533 persons made the presidential campaign council for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State.

The council led by Colonel Roland Omowa (rtd) has the party’s candidate in the last governorship election in the state, Eyitayo Jegede, SAN, as the vice chairman of the council.

Dr. Eddy Olafeso, a former national vice chairman, South-West, of the party, is the Director General of the campaign council.

In his address, the state Chairman of the party, Hon. Fatai Adams told the members of the party that the selection of the principal officers of the campaign council was in line with the order of the National Executive Council(NEC) of the party.

Besides the three principal officers of the campaign council, another 530 persons were also selected and inaugurated cutting across all the wards in the state.

The party chairman explained that 14 directorates headed by deputy directors, to report to Olafeso, were formed by the party to make the campaign get to the grassroots for victory at the general elections.

Addressing the 530 members of the campaign council, Dr. Olafeso stated that the party adopted the measure “to rescue Nigerians today. It’s a must-win election because of the state of this nation.

“Atiku has dedicated his life to making life easy for Nigerians.

“It’s our duty to convince the people, to see a better future for Nigeria rather than for ourselves.

“They’ve stolen all our patrimony. Our dignity was eroded. Our women took to the jungle and raped. This is an opportunity to build a better Nigeria. It’s only good governance led by Atiku that can bring back the kind of government we want.”

Jegede in his address expressed confidence that PDP would repeat the 2019 feat even better in the state.

He recalled that in 2019, PDP won the state by a margin of 38,000 votes, saying “We are going to be better than what we did in 2019. This is a winning team. We are all generals in this war.

“Let’s go and work as one. The suffering is too much in the land

By the grace of God, we shall send them away.

“If you vote for Atiku, he will need the support of those in the National Assembly. So let’s vote for all candidates of PDP.”

The chairman of the campaign council, Colonel Omowa(retd) enjoined all members of the party to support the campaign council for success at the general elections.
