National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Iyorchia Ayu, says he is proud of the people of Osun State for producing the first PDP governor under him.

Addressing party supporters and Chieftains at the PDP presidential rally in Osogbo, Osun State, Ayu said the victory of Governor Ademola Adeleke was a moral booster and a sign of what is to come in 2023.

Ayu who also welcome some decampees from other political parties led by the Governorship candidate of Labour Party in Osun in the last election, Yusuf Lasun, called on other aggrieved members of the party who left for one reason or the other to emulate the former deputy speaker of the House of Representatives.

Ayu told the gathering, “I am here to thank the people of Osun State for the honor they have done to me as a person and the party as a whole, I thank Osun people because you made it possible for me to produce my first Governor as the Chairman of the PDP. It shows what unity can do and as a united people, you made it possible for the PDP to win this strategic state.

“The founding fathers of the PDP formed the party to be owned by ordinary people not any individual, every body in this party is important and that is why we lay emphasis on the people. If the people wants something done nothing can stop it, I call on all Nigerians to come back and join hands with us, to work with us, so that we can control the government at the local, state and federal level.

“I am happy that some people who are misled, who mistakenly left the party for one reason or the other are coming back today. I hope every other person will follow their example and come back to the PDP. Because this is a party of hope, party of the future.

“Whatever happens in the past, you should forget the past, reunite with every member because we have a big job ahead, if we produce Ademola Adeleke as your Governor, you need the support of the Federal government, if you don’t have the support of the Federal government, you will continue to live in darkness.”

He called on residents of the state to come out en masse and vote for Atiku and other PDP candidates, saying “I believe with the support of the Federal government led by Atiku Abubakar who is one of you, he is the son of the soil. He is an Ijesha man. Once he takes over he is going to tell you what he is going to do not only for Osun people, but the whole of Nigeria. Under Atiku Abubakar, Nigeria shall be great again.”
