- Biodun Olujimi says she will not leave the PDP despite her defeat at the recent general elections
- Olujimi says she and some others are making efforts to rebuild the PDP in Ekiti state ahead of future elections
- The minority leader of the Senate describes the PDP as the only party that unifies its members and is ready to listen
The minority leader of the Senate, Biodun Olujimi, has revealed that she cannot leave the Peoples Democractic Party (PDP), the opposition political organisation through which she is serving the country.
Olujimi, a representative of Ekiti south district at the Senate, said this in an interview reported by New Telegraph.
Asked if she would leave the PDP following her defeat at the 2019 general elections, she said: “I am someone, who is grounded. I can never defect and the reason is simple. One must be known for honour, integrity, and steadfastness.
“This is the party, where I have achieved a lot. Why do I need to change it for another?
“What am I looking for than to serve my people and if they don’t want to be served, what do I do?”
Olujimi said she and others have started a rebuilding process of the PDP in Ekiti state adding that many of those who left the party for others may not be satisfied where they are.
“There is no party like PDP. The truth is that it is the liveliest party, we are always there for one another and we support each other.
“It is really difficult to leave PDP for another party; it is the party that is ready to listen to the views of every member. We are trying to get our members back.
“Whether you like it or not, when a new government comes, as the head, they sweep everything away, but we are going to sweep the polls next time around,” he said.
Legit.ng earlier reported that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) recently accused the minister of transport, Rotimi Amaechi, and the minister of justice, Abubakar Malami, of plans to scuttle the victory secured by the party in the just concluded Rivers state governorship election.
The PDP alleged that the minister of transportation and his colleague at the justice ministry plan to cause constitutional crisis in the state.
In response, Abubakar Malami (SAN) told the PDP not to link him with any alleged plot to void the Rivers state governorship election.
Malami on Sunday, April 7, dismissed the allegations by the PDP that he was working in collusion with the transportation Minister, Rotimi Amaechi to void the result of the last governorship election in Rivers state.
