ABEOKUTA - The Chairman of the Ogun State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Engr. Adebayo Dayo has urged party leaders to unite and work for the success of the party ahead of the 2023 elections.

Dayo gave the advice while addressing party members during the party's stakeholders meeting in Abeokuta on Thursday

Dayo said the goal of defeating the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the future elections could not be realized in a divided house.

He enjoined party leaders and members to put whatever grievances they had behind them and sacrifice their personal ambitions and interests to ensure PDP’s victory in the coming Local Government election and beyond.

“We must unite and work as a team if we want to make appreciable impact in the coming Local Government Election. The fact that the Local Government election is no longer to be conducted by the Ogun State Independent Electoral Commission (OGSIEC) is a welcome development. With Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in charge of council election one should expect a proper election and not "selection" like we have had in the past. This is an opportunity for us to tell the people of Ogun State that PDP is still alive.

"We are looking at how we can resolve the crisis in the party so we can make appreciable impact in future elections. Division is not good for the party. We are working on how  to bring everybody together under one umbrella.

“We must put old things behind us and sacrifice our personal ambitions and interests, not only for the victory of the party, but for the progress of Ogun State," he said.

The duo of Otunba Robert Adenaike and and Chief Kola Sorinola, who are elders of the party, respectively urged the party to avoid the pitfalls of the past ahead of the party congresses in 2020.

Also speaking, the State Secretary of the party, Alhaji Semiu Sodipo urged party members to be more dedicated to the party
and see themselves as stakeholders in the party, adding that it is the only way the party can regain its popularity in the grassroots and return to winning ways.

Dayo also received chieftains  of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) from Yewa North Local Government into the party.

He assured them of a level-playing field in the party.

The defectors were led by Dr. Samuel Olorunsola.
