The Governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in Ogun state, Hon. Ladi Adebutu, has urged co-contestants, Jimi Lawal, Segun Sowunmi and other aspirants who lost the party’s primary election, to join hands with him to rescue the state from the misrule of the All Progressives Congress

He made the appeal on Friday at the party secretariat in Abeokuta when the party presented certificates of return to state and national assembly candidates who emerged on the platform of the party.

Recall that Sowunmi is laying claim to the party’s ticket having emerged at parallel primary held at Iwe Iroyin, while Lawal had written the Senator Iyorchia Ayu-led leadership of the party calling for the cancellation of the primary election over alleged manipulation of delegates’ list.

The National Working Committee of the party had earlier this week presented a certificate of return to Adebutu in Abuja, thereby recognising him as the candidate of the party in the state.

The PDP candidate explained that it was time  to bury the hatchet and work towards   improving the chances of the party at reclaiming the state in the 2023 election.

Adebutu reiterated that he was determined at fostering unity in the party by working with all the aggrieved members, stating that a divided party cannot win at the general elections.

He mooted the idea of the party calling a meeting of all the aspirants to chart a winning strategy for the party.

Adebutu said, “I’m determined to bring everybody onboard because those that have won the primaries, won not because they are the best and not because they have the total number of votes, so those that lost out must not be left behind that is why I’m determined to always carry everybody along and I think that is the beauty of PDP.

“We are not known for imposing. I think we have successfully managed well democratically and we are still managing the situation.

“We must endeavor to have a big happy family so that we can face the challenges at hand. We recognised that we are still in the opposition and the work at hand is extensive and we know the antics of the misgovernance of the APC, we are hoping to take over power from them come 2023.”
