The chairman of South-West Peoples Democratic Party’s Mobilisation and Organisation Committee, Buruji Kasamu, has described the leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, as an enemy of the South-West PDP, calling on PDP members all over Nigeria to stop the former Lagos State governor and his supporters before the next general election.
Speaking at a meeting of the PDP South-West in Ibadan on Saturday, Kasamu said this year’s governorship election in Ekiti State would mark the beginning of PDP’s takeover of governments in the South-West, urging leaders of the party to throw their weight behind the party’s candidate to ensure victory.
Kasamu said, “The number one enemy of the South-West PDP is Bola Tinubu. I am ready to work and stop the activities of our (party’s) enemies, but I cannot do it alone because I am not the PDP’s overall leader, I am just one of the leaders.
“With the support of the party and our people, Ekiti will be ours soon. We must move with a voice to be winners again in South-West. Some people sold the area to our enemies and we must reject this, starting with victories in Ekiti and Osun states this year. I am not looking for position, but to reclaim the region for PDP. We are stronger than the APC when we work together.”
The meeting resolved to back the party’s national secretary, Wale Oladipupo, and urged the National Working Committee of the party to pick a date in January for zonal congress to be held in the South-West. It also reaffirmed its support for the PDP’s national Chairman, Bamanga Tukur.
