We Are Confident of Winning Osun – PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said on Wednesday that it had the confidence of winning Osun State governorship supplementary election.

The National Vice-Chairman (South-West) of the PDP,  Mr Eddy Olafeso, stated this in Abuja on Wednesday.

Olafeso said, “For us, we are very confident that victory will be ours tomorrow (Thursday). We already won anyway.

“PDP is not bothered because our people are resolute. And they are desirous in ensuring that the victory denied us on Saturday will eventually be ours.

“We have spoken to our people and we are certain that their experience from the current administration is enough for the need for a change that will bring development to the nation.”

On the outcome of the party’s meeting with Omisore, Olafeso said the party had put its hope in God, not individuals.

He said, “Although we have met with leaders in the state, but victory is in the hands of God. What is on ground is clear to all: eight years of total profligacy in Osun State. We will continue to speak with leaders; some of them will listen to us while some will do their own thing.”

Also, the National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus, said on Wednesday that INEC was practising a democracy not known in the world.

It said that the commission must be cautioned before it “ plunges the nation into avoidable crisis.”

Secondus stated this while hosting members of the International Republican Institute and National Democratic Institute, who piad him a visit at the party’s national headquarters in Abuja.

Secondus, who was represented by the Deputy National Chairman (South) of the party, Mr. Yemi Akinwomi, said, “Politicians are seriously worried about what is going to happen to the country after 2019.

“It is on record that when we lost election in 2015, we were the first party to concede defeat. Since this new INEC leadership took over, there have been serious complaints over elections conducted by INEC.

“In Nigeria, we practise differential democracy. INEC has been compromised, the security agencies have compromised.”
