The Senator representing Ekiti South Senatorial District, Biodun Olujimi, has appealed to Governor Biodun Oyebanji to quickly devise ways of brokering truce among contending forces in the troubled Ekiti Assembly over the festering leadership crisis in the legislature.
The lawmaker equally said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is not rattled by the incumbency power of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) saying the mood of Nigerians favours the opposition in the coming elections’.
Olujimi who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Aviation, also expressed confidence that herself and the PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar will emerge victorious in the polls.
She stated this in Ado Ekiti, during a programme organised by the party ahead of the 2013 general elections.
On the chances of the former Vice President Atiku in the next year’s election, Olujimi stated that the PDP remains the change Nigerians have been yearning for, to rescue them from the current economic challenges.
“For the PDP and our presidential candidate, the horizon is very bright for us. Nigerians are yearning for a meaningful change and that meaningful change is PDP. We know how to turn things around and by the grace of God, Alhaji Atiku will win the next election,” she stated.
Speaking about how the incumbent factor may spell doom for her re-election bid, Olujimi was upbeat of victory, relying on her superlative antecedents of achievements in the last eight years in the Senate to subdue her main challenger, Yemi Adaramodu of the All Progressives Congress.
She added; “Ogotun Ekiti has always been a home for me. They have been standing by me and for me throughout my political career. I have also been contributing my quota to the development of the town. It is in reciprocation of that contribution that they honoured me on Saturday.
