Osun 2018: PDP appoints Saraki to lead governorship campaign team

Senate President Bukola Saraki has been appointed Chairman of the 85-member campaign council by the Peoples Democratic Party for the upcoming governorship election in Osun State.

The party also described the All Progressives Congress as a haven for corrupt people.

Saraki, in his remarks, asked Buhari to stand on the commitment he made recently to two world leaders who visited the country that he would conduct a free, fair and credible election and use Osun as an example.

Saraki said aside from the popularity of the PDP candidate in Osun State, the people were yearning for change to return their state to the PDP.

Saraki added that the APC had become unpopular in Osun State due to the alleged maladministration of the ruling party in the state.

He said the PDP must not lose the election having lost in Ondo and Ekiti states.

He said, “The election is important because the PDP has lost two governorship elections in the South-West, Ekiti and Ondo states.

“We must win Osun to prove that Osun is the home ground of the PDP.

“The APC is already no more popular in Osun. I hope that President Muhammad Buhari will live up to his promise to world leaders that elections will be free and fair in Nigeria.”

Saraki called on the leadership of the PDP to capitalise on the disunity in the APC to win the election.
