Opinion: 2 Oyo PDP Leaders That May Rescue The Party From Political Mess In The State

The Peoples Democratic Party PDP may be finding it difficult to win the forthcoming Polls in the state. Not that the Party has not done the right thing for the People of the state. The Party has fulfilled her electioneering campaigns in the state but nevertheless, the Party may find it difficult to win the 2023 Governorship and Presidential race. Though, Governor Makinde did well in bringing the dividends of democracy to nooks and crannies of the state.

However, The Governor and PDP may not find it very easy to win the forthcoming Polls in the state because of the crisis rocking the Party in the state. It should be recalled that Governor Makinde and the former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose just resolved the crisis between them. The genesis of the crisis was as a result of the Power tussle between the two Leaders in the southwest. Fayose's faction Produced Eddy Olafeso as Southwest Candidate for the Position of Vice Chairman while Makinde's Faction produced Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja as their Candidate.

But at the end, Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja won the Polls and emerged Vice Chairman of the Party in southwest. On his assumption of office, Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja has tried to unite the aggrieved members of the Party together, so as to win the next Governorship Polls. Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja visited Alhaji Bisi Olopoeyan and Alhaji Nureni to work for the Progress of the Party ahead the 2023 Governorship Polls in the state. Nevertheless, the crisis within the party could only be settled by some Leaders in the state. Two among the Leaders shall be discussed.

The first Oyo PDP Leader that may rescue the Party from the Political mess it found itself is Hon. Mulikat Adeola from Ogbomosho. It should be recalled that Hon. Mulikat and Governor Makinde are not in good terms. Meanwhile, Hon. Mulikat was one of the Party Leaders from Oyo State that worked for the success of PDP and Governor Makinde in 2019 Governorship Polls. Recently, Hon. Mulikat Adeola explained how the Governor maltreated the Leaders that worked for him in 2019 Governorship Polls. The Governor can reach out to Hon. Mulikat Adeola on time, so as to mediate and unite the aggrieved members together.

Another PDP Leader that may rescue the Party at this critical Period from the Political mess the Party found itself in the state is Alhaji Nureni Akanbi. Alhaji Nureni is very cordial to Alhaji Bisi Olopoeyan. Recalled that Alhaji Olopoeyan is one of the aggrieved members of the Party. Though Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja has reached out to both Alhaji Bisi Olopoeyan and Alhaji Nureni Akabi but it will be more effective, if Alhaji Nureni Akanbi should intervene and talk to Olopoeyan.

The 2023 Governorship Polls is approaching and the Leaders should come together and work for the Progress of the party. The Party Leaders are not happy with the Present situation of PDP in the state. The Governor should act fast by reaching out to those Leaders that can easily mediate the aggrieved members together, otherwise the Governor and the PDP may find it difficult to win the forthcoming Polls in the state.
