Edo Deputy Governor Declares Oyo PDP Ward Congress Peaceful, Fair, Credible
Deputy Governor of Edo State, Comrade Philip Shaibu, has described the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ward congress in Oyo State as peaceful, fair and credible.
A statement endorsed by the media assistant to the deputy governor, Benjamin Atu, and made available to journalists in Benin City on Saturday evening, stated that Comrade Shaibu made the observations in Ibadan, Oyo State capital, as the chairman of the committee by the PDP national headquarters to conduct the ward congress.
“We are here in the state to do the bidding of the masses and we are currently fulfilling that obligation in making sure that the ward congress that is currently ongoing in the 351 wards across the state is peaceful and credible,” Shaibu was quoted as saying.
The Edo State deputy governor also noted that though they were aggrieved members, the party would try and resolve all issues.
“I had discussions with one or two aggrieved members of the party and they have accepted to put their grievances aside and work for the common good. Majority of the people are in support of the peaceful reconciliation process and the discussions that are still ongoing,” Shaibu added.
He gave a condition that can make it possible for the main opposition party to take over Nigeria’s presidency in 2023.
He said that “If PDP is able to step up organisation, we will be able to take over the federal government, all the PDP states’ policies that are currently yielding positive results will add up to making Nigeria great again.”
