The National PDP Professionals and Business Group (NPPBG) has congratulated the National Caretaker Committee of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) led by Senator Ahmed Makarfi and the party’s flag bearer in this weekend’s governorship election in Ondo State, Eyitayo Jegede over the land mark victories it got in both the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal.
In a press statement Thursday, the National Coordinator of NPPBG, Dr. Arome Salifu said the confirmation by the Court of Jegede as the party’s candidate for the Ondo election is a reflection of the wishes and desires of millions of party members and supporters worldwide.
While reiterating the confidence of the NPPBG in the ability of the Makarfi led caretaker committee to get the party out of its current crises, Dr. Salifu urged Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, erstwhile party flag bearer, Jimoh Ibrahim and other members of their faction to collapse their structures in support of the wish of the people.
The NPPBG which is an arm of the party has not spared any effort in trying to restore peace and harmony back into the erstwhile ruling party.
Dr. Salifu also congratulated Governor Olusegun Mimiko and millions of party faithful in Ondo State on the hard earned victory. He urged them not to be discouraged by the time spent pursuing the court victory but to mobilise voters en-masse and ensure Jegede’s victory on Saturday.
“We cannot afford to lose Ondo State to any other party and so no effort should be spared to ensure victory for the PDP at the Ondo governorship poll,” he said.
