The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has stated that the South-West geopolitical zone is strategic to its “inevitable victory” at the 2019 general elections.
The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, stated this when the leaders of the Federation of South-West Professionals in Politics paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja, as contained in a statement he issued on Monday.
The party’s spokesperson said the region remains a major support base for the party, adding that this accounts for why it will “never treat matters concerning the zone with levity.”
He said the party holds the leaders and party members in the zone in very high esteem because of their dedication and sacrifices towards the stability and growth of the PDP.
According to Ologbondiyan, “The South-West zone is a major support base of the PDP. It is very strategic to our party and we hold our leaders and members in the zone in very high esteem for their untiring efforts in ensuring that the PDP flag continues to fly high in spite of daunting challenges.
“Due to their resilience, our party held forth, so much so, that despite the manipulations and intimidations by the All Progressives Congress (APC), in 2015, the difference in votes won by the APC and our great party in the southwest was very minimal. That shows that PDP commands the genuine followership of voters in the region.
“In Lagos state, the home of the national leader of the APC, the PDP won six House of Representatives seats and nine state assembly seats. We have continued to have the majority support of the voting population in Ekiti state and our structure in the southwest in general remains formidable.
“In Oyo State, our party is waxing stronger while our victory at the last senatorial election in Osun West has shown that we shall retake the state.
“Similarly, in Ogun and Ondo states, our leaders and members are working very hard in re-positioning our party and expanding our support base, for which we are confident of victory in any election.
