We’ll re­cover our man­date from APC - Kwara PDP

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, Ilorin

The Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) in Kwara State yes­ter­day told the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) lead­er­ship in the state to be pre­pared to va­cate the Govern­ment House on or be­fore 2015.

The party in­sisted that the APC which is cur­rently run­ning the af­fairs of the state is do­ing so with a stolen man­date, as­sur­ing that the man­date would soon be re­cov­ered.

Newly elected chair­man of the party, Bar­ris­ter Iyi­ola Oyedepo, stated this while in­au­gu­rat­ing new of­fi­cers of the party from the 16 lo­cal gov­ern­ments.

He said, “We are giv­ing quit no­tice to the APC govern­ment that is run­ning the af­fairs of the state with a stolen man­date. The man­date of PDP that is now il­le­gally in the cus­tody of the APC shall soon be re­cov­ered.

“I urge our mem­bers to get set for new elec­tions, as Kwara people may be called for elec­tions ear­lier than 2015. The oc­cu­pants of our govern­ment house are liv­ing on bor­rowed time with stolen man­date.”

Oyedepo de­scribed the PDP as the “anointed party by God” and urged mem­bers to shun un­nec­es­sary squab­bles which the op­po­si­tion could cap­i­talise on to de­feat the party.

He also urged mem­bers as­pir­ing for po­lit­i­cal of­fices in the forth­com­ing elec­tion to work hard to se­cure the sup­port of party del­e­gates, promis­ing that a level play­ing ground would be pro­vided for all as­pi­rants.
