Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has said it has recovered from the unprecedented electoral defeat it suffered during the 2015 general elections.
It, therefore, said it has begun moves to recapture power from the All Progressives Congress in 2019.
It said one of the moves aimed at winning the elections in the future was the election of the Governor of Ondo State, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, as the Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum.
The party hailed the process that led to Mimiko’s emergence, saying the development reflects the unity and sense of purpose within its fold, especially at this rebuilding time.
The PDP, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, in Abuja yesterday, described Mimiko as a seasoned administrator and a highly organised person, who is eminently equipped for his new role as the Chairman of the Forum.
Metuh added that the recent political events in the country have continued to vindicate the PDP as “the only true national platform committed to national interest, where all citizens as equal partners are free to hold opinion and aspire to any position, no matter how high, without regard to creed, class or ethnic considerations and in which no individual or group of individuals can claim ownership or attempt to appropriate control.”
Stating that the PDP “has since overcome the setback of the last general elections,” the spokesperson for the opposition party said as a party founded on the principles of freedom, equality, justice and national unity, the PDP’s spirit “is still alive and stronger now more than ever before, in the minds of most Nigerians and families in all the nooks and crannies of the country.”
