Biodun Olujimi, the Senator representing Ekiti North at the National Assembly, said the Peoples Democratic Party in the state would win the Governorship election in 2022 only if there are justice and unity.
Senator Olujimi and the former governor of the state, Ayodele Fayose, are battling for the control of the party’s structure in the state.
Senator Olujimi had accused the national leaders of the PDP of allowing Mr. Fayose to do whatever he pleases in the party.
The party is polarized in the state with Ms Olujimi and Mr Fayose leading different factions. Both factions claim authenticity. Last week, the West African Pilot News reported that two chairmen emerged from parallel congresses.
Sen Olujimi was quoted by the Punch to have said that: “We are where we are today as a result of the dictatorial nature and selfish interest of one man who sees himself as the alpha and omega of the party. But the vast majority of party members across the 16 local government areas of Ekiti are ready to change the order and give everyone a sense of belonging in the management of the party.”
“And for us to be able to dislodge APC in the 2022 governorship election, the party must purge itself of impunity and ensure justice, equity and fairness is done. Where there is no justice, equity and fairness, the party cant’s win an election.”
