The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has been advised to maximally utilize the fresh opportunities provided by the vacancies existing in the South West Zonal office of the party to re engineer and fortify the party against the rage of the opposition and return the region to national government.
Specifically, the leadership of the party must see that the vacant positions are filled with strong and credible politicians capable of bringing back estranged members and as well attract new blood into PDP and also correct all cases of lopsidedness in some state executives.
A chieftain of the party, Alhaji Kehinde Olaosebikan who gave the advice while speaking with political correspondents in Abuja Friday, declared that the party (PDP) would regain its lost glory in the South West if all these are speedily and holistically attended to.
Olaosebikan, a former Chairman of Oluyole Local Government, Oyo State and one of the leading progressives in the party, said it would be a masterstroke if the party could use this rear chance to bring back all the estranged members of the party, with emphasis on a former governor of Oyo State, Senator Rasheed Ladoja and benefit from their grassroots acceptance, national reach and democratic values.
Alhaji Olaosebikan maintained that the cries over marginalization by the region can only be averted if the party at the national and more so at the regional levels make the necessary moves and sacrifices and win the region for the national government. To him, all the leaders in the region must be prepared to go extra miles in stabilizing and strengthening the party for all round victory in 2015.
