Leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-west has assured citizens of its readiness to win the zone for the party come 2015.
Towards this end, it has set up structures through the Mobilisation and Organisation Committee in all the wards, local governments and six states in the South-west to canvass supporters for the party.
Addressing stakeholders of the party in Ijebu Igbo, Ogun State, Director of Organisation of the Committee, Otunba Leke Adekoya, said over 200,000 canvassers with valid voters’ card have been mobilised for the party across the zone.
He said the committee has the contact details of all the canvassers, adding that they were fully mobilised for the challenges ahead, particularly in Ekiti and Osun states.
The meeting, which attracted party bigwigs throughout the six South-west states, was organised to sensitise the party supporters on the need to campaign, especially at the grassroots towards the general elections.
Those who spoke at the meeting included the party’s National Secretary, Prof. Wale Oladipo; the National Auditor, Alhaji Adewale Adeyanju; Chairman, Caretaker Committee, South-west PDP, Chief Ishola Filani; First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, who was represented by the National Coordinator, Women for Change and Development, Dr. Rabi Ibrahim; the Chairman, Organisation and Mobilisation Committee of the party in South-west, Prince Buruji Kashamu.
Kashamu ascribed the security challenges confronting the country to some fifth columnists who “are deliberately promoting violence and insecurity” to blur Jonathan’s achievements in all sectors of the economy.
He urged Nigerians to rally round the President Goodluck Jonathan in the fight against insurgency and other entrenched interests.
