PDP must win 2019 elections by a landslide – Adebutu

Ahead of the Peoples Democratic Party’s congresses in Ogun State, a member of the House of Representatives, Oladipupo Adebutu, has urged the leadership of the party to be united to ensure victory in the 2019 general elections.
Adebutu, who is aspiring to be the next governor of the state, noted that imposition of candidates would further polarise the party and might scuttle its chances in the next election.

He stated this on Friday at a meeting with the party leadership, members and supporters in Abeokuta.

The lawmaker added that the only way the PDP could bounce back in the state was for the leadership and party members to redouble their efforts to defeat the All Progressives Congress in 2019.

He said, “We are dealing with an incumbent (governor from another party) and it (victory) has to be a landslide. 51 per cent is not good enough; 55 per cent is not good as well. We must not be complacent. We should try as much as possible to avoid division in our party.

“I want us to win. We have 40 major elective positions in Ogun State. I am interested in one (governorship slot). I am not interested in a situation where an unpopular person would be foisted on the party. I will not impose people of my choice on anybody.”

Meanwhile, a former Nigerian High Commissioner to Canada, Dare Bejide, has said his ambition to become the next governor of Ekiti State is driven by passion for good governance.

Bejide, according to a statement by the Director General, Ambassador Dare Bejide Campaign Organisation, Dr. Kunle Folayan, stated this at a meeting with some retired state and federal civil servants and businessmen in Ado Ekiti.

The PDP governorship aspirant said, “Regular and prompt payment of salaries, gratuity and pension, promotion of staff and other incentives will be given priority since our major industry is the civil service. My administration will ensure regular training and re-training of staff to enhance professionalism, especially in the global context.”
