Amby Uneze in Owerri
Former Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives, Chief Emeka Ihedioha, has described the successful conduct of the Ekiti State governorship primary election of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as seamless, affirming the solidity and readiness of the â€œreformed partyâ€™, to liberate Nigerians from the failed All Progressives Congress (APC) government in 2019.
Ihedioha, while extolling the party members and delegates in Ekiti State, stated: â€œI congratulate the Deputy Governor of the state, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, on his emergence as the gubernatorial candidate of the PDP for the July 14 governorship election, urging him to be magnanimous in victory.
He noted that â€œthe peaceful, free, fair and transparent conduct of the exercise has become the hallmark of the rebranded PDP.â€
The former speaker commended the state Governor, Ayodele Fayose, and Chairman of PDP Governors Forum, the leadership of the party, the electoral committee led by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, and expressed special gratitude to the runner-up, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, former National Publicity Secretary, for his patriotism and rare spirit of sportsmanship in accepting the outcome of the election.
While charging the party to ensure genuine reconciliation ahead of the general election, he advised the APC to wake up to the realities and demands of democracy and emulate the rich democratic credentials of the PDP to save democracy and Nigerians from further ridicule.
