Nigeria In One Minute

Osun: 3,439 delegates pick PDP candidate Saturday



The Peoples Democratic Party is currently panicking and mapping out strategies to make sure that it does not suffer defeat in the September 17 governorship election in Osun State as it did in Ekiti State on Saturday, The PUNCH has learnt.

It was gathered that the members of the National Working Committee of the party would meet this week to review what happened in Ekiti State that made the party to lose the election to its main rival, the All Progressives Congress.

…The party had planned to use the outcome of the Ekiti State governorship election as a stimulant for its desire to win the Osun State governorship election.

A member of the Board of Trustees of the party, Chief Ebenezer Babatope, told our correspondent that the party was sad about the Ekiti loss, warning that its leadership needed to brace up so that such “calamity is not transferred to us in Osun State.”
