Aformer Na­tional Sec­re­tary of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party, Prof. Wale Oladipo, on Thurs­day said the South West would vote mas­sively for the PDP pres­i­den­tial can­di­date, Atiku Abubakar.

Oladipo, who is a mem­ber of the PDP Pres­i­den­tial Cam­paign Coun­cil, in a state­ment is­sued on the South West PDP pres­i­den­tial rally de­scribed Atiku as a tested and trusted pres­i­den­tial ma­te­rial hav­ing be­ing a Vice Pres­i­dent for eight years.

he said with his wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence, Atiku would run an all-in­clu­sive, lib­eral and God-fear­ing gov­ern­ment after win­ning the 2019 elec­tion.

Oladipo, how­ever, urged lead­ers and mem­bers of the Na­tional Work­ing Com­mit­tee, to en­sure to­tal rec­on­cil­i­a­tion of ag­grieved par­ties in the zone to en­sure to­tal vic­tory for the party.

he said, “I com­mend the good work of mem­bers of the NWC of our party in their ef­forts to make the PDP re­gain its lost glory.

“I will also want the body, the Board of Trustees and other prom­i­nent lead­ers of the party to en­sure a to­tal rec­on­cil­i­a­tion in the zone and oth­ers in gen­eral in or­der for it to make a suc­cess­ful out­ing in all the 2019 gen­eral elec­tions.

“This has be­come nec­es­sary so that we can go into the 2019 elec­tion bat­tle as a united front. Once this is done, vic­tory is as­sured. We need to­tal rec­on­cil­i­a­tion and it should be now.”
