Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Saawua Terzungwe

Vice Pres­i­dent Na­madi Sambo and na­tional chair­man of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP), Al­haji Adamu Muazu, have tasked can­di­dates of the PDP in the forth­com­ing Ek­iti and Osun States gov­er­nor­ship elec­tions to en­sure to­tal vic­tory for the party.

Speak­ing yes­ter­day at the in­au­gu­ra­tion of the cam­paign com­mit­tee for the two elec­tions, Sambo said both Ek­iti and Osun States were PDP states be­fore the party’s man­date was stolen from it.

He tasked the can­di­date of Ek­iti, Ayo Fayose and that of Osun, Se­na­tor Iyi­ola Omisore to work hard in or­der to re­claim the “stolen man­date.”

The vice Pres­i­dent as­sured that Pres­i­dent Good­luck Jonathan would do ev­ery­thing pos­si­ble to en­sure free, fair and cred­i­ble elec­tions in the two states ap­peal­ing to the party can­di­dates to carry mem­bers of the party along in the scheme of things.

Mu’azu on his part charged the com­mit­tee for both states to or­ga­nize and put up good and trans­par­ent strate­gies to suc­ceed in the elec­tions. He tasked the com­mit­tee to en­sure that cam­paign teams are well put up and cam­paigns done vig­or­ously in or­der to suc­ceed.

In his re­sponse, the party’s can­di­date for Ek­iti, Ayo Fayose said: “If due process is to be fol­lowed, PDP has al­ready won the elec­tion” adding that if the PDP wins in the two states, it should con­sider it­self as “win­ner of the 2015 elec­tions in 2014.”
