As voters prepare for the October 10 2020 governorship election in Ondo State, a Prominent Businessman, Hon Oluwatoyin Adams has called on members and leaders of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP across the state not to allow selfish political interests to disintegrate the party during and after the party’s governorship primary in the state slated for July 22.
Adams, a politician-based in the United Kingdom, made the call through his movement, Oba-Ilukan Movement (OIM) in a press release made available to SUNSHINETRUTH on Tuesday jointly signed by its coordinators, Asiwaju Richards and Comrade Ropo Bailey.
The PDP stalwart said the party had a big chance of winning the election and should not allow personal interest to allow it slip away.
Oba-Ilukan Movement, a socio-political group established to promote good governance in Ondo State via leadership trainings, engagement with the youths by providing platform fo leadership development and playing a major role in the emergence of good leaders into political offices has its membership across the 18 local government areas of Ondo State with its political base in the northern senatorial district of the state.
The group said the government of APC in Ondo State has not been piloted in the interest of the good people of Ondo State.
It added that the agony and suffering unleashed on the people is so much that the people are now crying out to the opposition parties to come to their aid, the reason the group is saddled with the responsibility of mobilizing supports for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The statement reads, “however, it is obvious that a divided opposition cannot wrestle down the ruling party in the governorship election. There is need for us to go into the election more united than we currently are.
“Unlike ever before, I can tell you that the desire of those of us in the opposition is to see APC out of the government house in 2021.’’
The group, Oba-Ilukan Movement is also scheduled to meet with the National Chairman of the party, Chief Uche Secondus in few days time to discuss issues bothering on Edo and Ondo governorship elections.
