Meet Two PDP Leaders From Southwest Who May Clinch The Position Of National Chairman Of The Party

It is no more news that the Peoples Democratic Party PDP has zoned her National Chairmanship Position to the Southwest. The Leaders of the Party made it known that the Purpose of zoning the Chairmanship Position of the Party to the Southwest is to win the Forthcoming Governorship Polls in both Osun and Ekiti States. However, Some Leaders of the Party in Southwest, have been showing interest to take the Mantle of Leadership of the Party.

One of the PDP Leaders in the Southwest who may likely contest for the Position of National Chairman in the Party, is the former Governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola. Oyinlola was the Governor of the State for Seven and half years. He was disqualified as Governor of the State by the Supreme Court and Aregbesola took the Mantle of Leadership from him. Though, Oyinlola is an Experienced Leader that can easily bring back the glory of the Party.

It should be recalled that Oyinlola had earlier aspired for the Position of Secretary of the Party together with Kawu Baraje as Chairman of the Party and they both dumped the PDP for APC in 2014 when they were denied their Positions as Chairman and Secretary of the Party. He was compensated with the Chairman of National Identity Management Commission (NIMC). Though, Oyinlola resigned his Position as Chairman of the Board and returned to the PDP. Therefore, If Oyinlola could be consider for the Position of the National Chairman of the Party, the Party may not have much Problems to win the Forthcoming Polls.

Another PDP Leader that may also contest for the Position of the National Chairman of the Party is the former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose. Fayose happens to be one of the active and vibrant Leader in the Southwest. It should be recalled that Fayose supported Eddy Olafeso to contest for the Position of Vice Chairman of the Party in Southwest, while the Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde supported Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja. Though Arapaja defeated his Fayose's Candidate, Eddy Olafeso.

Recently, Fayose was alleged that he supported the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his Presidential Ambition. Fayose was accused of joining the Southwest Agenda (SWAGA) but Fayose denied the allegation that he has joined SWAGA. SWAGA is a Pressure Group in APC emancipating for the realisation of Tinubu's Presidential Ambition. Therefore, If Fayose should be given the Position of National Chairman of the Party, he will not leave the Party for APC. Let us know your views about the two Leaders.
