Lagos PDP Chapter Approves Seyi Makinde As S/West Party Chairman

The People’s Democratic Party, Lagos chapter has given it’s support to Oyo State Governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde to assume the leadership duties of the party in the Southwest.

This was according to the Deputy National Chairman of the PDP in Lagos, Alhaji Waliu Hassan yesterday at a meeting with Governor Seyi Makinde alongside other members of the party from Lagos.

He lauded the role the Governor has played in the party so far and to affirm their loyalty to his leadership.

Addressing newsmen after the meeting yesterday, former lawmaker Rita Orji pleaded with the Governor to continue to do his best to ensure that the party is returned to it’s rightful place ahead of the 2023 elections.

She said, “
The purpose of today’s meeting is to thank Governor Makinde for standing by the party and to pledge total loyalty to his leadership of the South-West. No more, no less.

“We can tell you that the governor does not want anything from us. He, as the Chief Security Officer of Oyo State, needs nothing from the party. Rather, we are the ones who came all the way from Lagos to plead with him to keep leading the party.

“We resolved to, irrespective of any rancour, move the party forward and we will ensure that the party takes its better seat in 2023. We did not come here to discuss who takes anything for zonal congress. The congress will soon come up and for all we care, we have come to restate our commitment to our own governor.

 It is the full structure of Lagos that is represented here. Out of 19, we have the representation of 12 local government chairmen. We also have 17 complete non-working committee members of state exco here present. We have the deputy chairman of the party here. We have the secretary, legal adviser and the entire party structure of Lagos State here. This is a complete House of PDP, Lagos State” she concluded.
