Former Osun State Governor, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola has canvassed for unity among members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in order to win the 2023 Presidential election.
Oyinlola gave the advice while speaking with newsmen after receiving former Oyo State Deputy Governor Taofeek Arapaja and party supporters in his house in Osogbo.
He said with unity of purpose, the PDP rescue Nigerians from the suffering created by the All Progressives Congress misrule.
“What can lead to success in the next general election to ensure that there is unity within the party, if that is achieved, I can say it loud and clear that we can defeat the ruling party.
“The APC government has failed Nigerians in every aspect of governance, except if someone wants to be insincere, then one will say the party has delivered the electoral promises it made to Nigerians.
“I was part of the party at the time it was coming on board, they have not fulfilled a single promise, from security to economy, corruption, just mention it. So if we have our party united, the people will follow us.
“We have been making progress towards achieving unity within the party, you should recall that I am the Chairman of the reconciliation committee for South West and having gone round the six states, we have been able to identify the problems.
“It’s a matter of just sitting down and resolving the issues identified.
We must be united if we want to win the election, there are no two ways about it”, said the former PDP scribe.
Oyinlola expressed satisfaction with the breakthrough in the Ekiti state chapter of the party as both former Governor Ayo Fayose and Senator Abiodun Olujinmi reconciling their differences.
“Before when I met them, they were both adamant, not wanting to sit down and talk together, but I was surprised two weeks ago when the two of them were sat together and reach a compromise.
“I called the two of them that I am indeed very grateful that they should see to a glorious end and they both accepted”, he added.
