The Lagos state chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed readiness to participate in the forthcoming South-West congress to hold in Ibadan, Oyo state capital, this Saturday, April 10.
Speaking in Lagos on Wednesday, the state Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani said the delegates no fewer than 139 are ready, adding that they have been fired up by the state leader Bode George.
“We are prepared; we are going to vote for the candidates of our choices.
“Our state chapter is very well prepared for the congress.
“We have been motivated and admonished by the leader of the party, Chief Bode George, to go and do justice,’’ Gani said.
He urged the National Working Committee of PDP, and all those in charge of the congress, to be fair and impartial.
“We want the National Working Committee of the party to allow a credible election.
“I think everyone should allow the will of the people come through for peace and tranquillity to reign in the party,’’ he added.
The exercise, which was only rescheduled last week, has been a matter of major dispute within the zone for the past week. It would be recalled that some party members have sought its postponement while others insisted that any attempt to do so will be inviting dire consequences that could rip the party apart.
The Lagos state chairman has been one of those calling for the postponement while Oyo state governor, Seyi Makinde has been of an opposing view.
