Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, a former governor of Osun state, has said that members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) must be united in order to win the 2023 presidential election.
PM News reports that Oyinlola gave the advice while speaking with newsmen after receiving former Oyo state deputy governor, Taofeek Arapaja and party supporters in his house in Osogbo.
Legit.ng gathered that he said with unity of purpose, the PDP can rescue Nigerians from the suffering created by the All Progressives Congress (APC) misrule.
Vanguard also reports that Oyinlola expressed satisfaction with the breakthrough in the Ekiti state chapter of the party as both former Governor Ayo Fayose and Senator Abiodun Olujinmi reconciled their differences.
“Before when I met them, they were both adamant, not wanting to sit down and talk together, but I was surprised two weeks ago when the two of them were sat together and reach a compromise.
I called the two of them that I am indeed very grateful that they should see to a glorious end and they both accepted."
Speaking about the APC-led government, Oyinlola asserted that the party has failed Nigerians in every aspect of governance, “except if someone wants to be insincere, then one will say the party has delivered the electoral promises it made to Nigerians.”
“I was part of the party at the time it was coming on board, they have not fulfilled a single promise, from security to economy, corruption, just mention it. So if we have our party united, the people will follow us."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that some leaders of the APC held talks with a former speaker of the House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole.
It was reported that the party disclosed that Bankole met on Friday, March 12, with APC chairman, Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Governor Mai Mala Buni in Abuja in the company of Jigawa Governor Abubakar Bagudu.
