He added that the majority of Nigerians who voted for the APC made a grave mistake by trusting Buhari to come back to power in 2015.
Legit.ng gathered that Ologunaba was recently adopted as a consensus candidate by the Ondo state and southwest caucuses of the PDP.
Speaking on his aspiration, he said:
“I am contesting for the office of National Publicity Secretary of PDP to convey the strong message of hope to Nigerians.”
The PDP national convention is scheduled to hold on Saturday, October 30 in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja during which the party’s new national officials will be elected.
