The Osun State Governor-elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has revealed that for him to deliver on his five point agenda to the people of the state, there is need to get a president from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the federal level.
Adeleke also stated that victory of the PDP in the Osun gubernatorial election would be incomplete unless the party delivered at the federal level.
He made this known in his remark during the inauguration of the Osun State Chapter of the Atiku Presidential Campaign Council in Osogbo on Tuesday.
Adeleke, who doubles as the Chairman of the Campaign Council, charged members to deliver Osun State to the PDP at the Presidential, National Assembly and State Assembly election.
In his words, “Our victory at the governorship election will be incomplete unless we deliver at the federal level.
“As your Governor in Osun state, I need a President of our party at the federal level to support me as I deliver our five point agenda to the good people of Osun State.
“An Atiku Presidency will strengthen our state and assist us to surmount the many challenges facing state governance.”
Adeleke posited that an Atiku presidency is necessary because the PDP presidential candidate has the most updated, relevant and responsive manifesto among all presidential contenders.
“His plan for Nigeria fits into the aspirations of Osun people for restructuring of the federation, for local government autonomy, for anti-corruption, for better infrastructure, for national unity in diversity and for good governance.
“Our votes must go for Atiku Abubakar because he is the most tested and trusted with sterling records of performance in and out of government.
“A combination of Atiku Abubakar and Dr Okowa at the presidency will take Nigeria to a prosperous level locally and internationally.”
He called on the campaign council members to mobilise the people in order for the party to obtain bigger margins during the 2023 general elections
