*Elected again as Kwara PDP chairman
*APC 14 years in government is a waste
Akogun Iyiola Oyedepo has been re-elected as the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara. He said that the agenda of his Executive members is to return the party back to Government House in 2019.
Oyedepo said this on Thursday in Ilorin after the swearing-in of the 31 member PDP Executive council.
“The task before us is daunting but not insurmountable, with our collective efforts and total commitment, we will come out victorious,” Oyedepo added.
He therefore called on the executive members, PDP members, leaders and supporters to be prepared to work assiduously for the success of the party.
Oyedepo lamented that APC has been in government in the state for 14 years with nothing to show for it.
He said all infrastructures in the state have collapsed, health care in shamble, farmers are crying of neglect while education has nosedived under the leadership of Dr Abdulfatah Ahmed.
The chairman lamented the state of disrepair of roads in the state, adding that local government secretariats have been overgrown with weeds.
The Chairman said members and supporters of the party should come together to forge a common cause to dislodge the APC-led government from the Government House.
“People of Kwara are yearning for change; they want us to effect the change of government in the state, we are going to change the government by God’s grace.
“The change can only be possible if all of us work together as a team; let us forget the past and build PDP to become victorious,” he said.
Oyedepo said he will set up a Reconciliation Committee that will go round the party leaders and seek their cooperation and support.
“The work before us is so much that we need to enlist the support of everybody, most especially the aggrieved members of the party,” he added.
Oyedepo thanked members of the party for keeping faith with the executive, particularly during the crisis that engulfed the party.
He promised to operate an open door policy and appealed to leaders of the party to deliver their wards during the coming local government elections.
