PDP endorses Olafeso as S/W Vice Chairman

By Fisayo Akinduro, Osogbo


The immediate past National Vice Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South West, Dr Eddy Olafeso has been re-anointed in the same capacity in the forthcoming Zonal Congress of the party in the Zone.
All the Osun PDP delegates have gathered in the Party Secretariat, Biket area, Osogbo, and unanimously e ndorsed Dr Olafeso, describing him as a round peg in the round hole and the most qualified.
The Chairman of the party in the state, Sunday Bisi who presided over the meeting maintained that Dr Olafeso is the only candidate in sight, who could do the party proud in every sense of the word.
Bisi stated that Olafeso has been tested and trusted to project and protect the interest of all members of the party, if re-elected.
Recall that another hopeful of the position of the party’s South West Chairman, Amb. Taofeeq Arapaja had visited a section of the PDP leaders in Osogbo recently, for support and adoption as the right candidate.
While Amb. Arapaja is in the group loyal to Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Dr Olafeso enjoys the support of a former Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Ayodele Fayose.
Speaking at the event, the National Deputy Publicity Secretary of the party, Diran Odeyemi, who threw his weight behind Olafeso and his team stated that he has worked with both Amb. Arapaja and Dr Olafeso and that the latter is the best choice for the post.
In his words, a former National Secretary of the party, Prof. Wale Oladipo has encouraged delegates and the party leaders not to relent in their resolve to support Olafeso as only he represents the general interest and will of the members of the party in the Zone.
He assured them that, going by the experience, integrity and antecedent of Dr Olafeso, he would perform excellently well in the assignments of PDP National Vice Chairman in the South West.
Earlier, Dr Olafeso who expressed happiness and satisfaction at the massive turnout of leaders and delegates at the event, stated that he shall come out with flying colours, whenever the Zonal Congress is held.
He however disowned the April 10 date of South West Zonal Congress, allegedly scheduled to hold in Ibadan, Oyo State capital as it was flying on the social media platforms.
According to Dr Olafeso, no specific date and venue has been fixed for the Congress as the National Secretariat is yet to clear or take position on some Court orders and pronouncements concerning the Zonal Congress.
