The flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Ijebu-North/Ijebu-East/Ogun Waterside Federal Constituency ahead of the 2023 general elections, Rt. Hon. Abdel-Majid Adesegun Adekoya has appealed to those who contested the primary election with him to accept the result in good faith.
Adekoya prominently known as ATTACKER in Nigeria political circle made this known through his media office on Thursday, following a purported protest organised by one of the contenders jostling for the position in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
“Though, I have emerged the Party candidate, but I can tell you that in line with the internal democratic principle of PDP, we are all winners”
The PDP Chieftain who doubles as Deputy Minority Whip of the House of Representatives disclosed that elections are not won on social media, stressing that the elections which produced him as the candidate of the party was in line with the laid down rules and regulations of national secretariat of the party.
“Our party is a very organised one. And the national secretariat of the party has a credible channel of redressing grievances arousing from election. The Elections Appeal Committee was in the state to the best of my knowledge to handle such issues”
The statement advised the aggrieved aspirants not to see the election as a do or die affair, but a service to humanity and an avenue to further put smiles on the faces of the people of the federal constituency.
Adekoya disclosed that all the aspirants who contested the election with him will be a potential stakeholder in his administration, advising them to avoid whipping up constituency sentiment to champion political goals.
The Four State Constituencies of Ifelodun, Ijebu-Igbo, Ijebu-East and Ogun Waterside, which form the Federal Constituency have always had a robust interaction in the past, and the spirit should be sustained in order to put the party in its usual winning ways in the area.
