…. returns to PDP
By Richard Thomas, Ibadan
The Former Chairman, in Akinyele Local government area of Oyo State on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Elder Segun Olayiwola has admonished the people of the state not to relent in their continued support for Engr Makinde led administration owing to his outstanding performance since he assumed office in May 2019.
He said Makinde has overwhelmingly reached out to the people of the state with laudable programmes, just as he described him as a true leader of the people.
Olaiwola made the point when he led over 5000 former members of some political parties in the Akinyele local government area of Oyo State back to the ruling party in the State.
According to him, Makinde has proved himself as a credible leader who has what it takes to transform the state and make life meaningful to the people.
Some members of Action Democratic Party (ADP)and other parties were also among the defectors with women dancing in admiration of Hon Olayiwola’s returning to PDP which he left some years ago.
Elder Olayiwola was received back into the party by the state Chairman, Alhaji KUNMI Mustapha who described the defector as a man of principle adding that Olayiwola was an asset to PDP.
Speaking with newsmen, the astute politician disclosed that he returned to the party due to the credible performance of governor Makinde and the respect he has for some leaders in the Akinyele area of the party.
“I was impressed by the performances of Governor Seyi within his short period in government.”
He urged other people he led to the PDP to join hands together with Makinde in order to move the state forward.
