Opinion: How PDP Can Take Advantage Of The Current APC's Crisis In Osun

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) can benefit from the crisis that the All Progressive Congress (APC) is experiencing in Osun State ahead of the upcoming gubernatorial election in the state. As reported by the Punch Newspaper, the All Progressive Congress (APC) congress that was held in Osun State yesterday resulted in violence that people were even injured during the crisis. Now that the ruling party has been facing challenges in Osun State towards the next Osun State gubernatorial election, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) can take advantage of the situation.

Apart from the normal congress held by the party yesterday, the Osun Progressive (TOP) also held another congress in Osogbo. The Osun Progressive (TOP) used to be a very functioning group for the ruling party during the administration of Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola when he was still the governor of the state. Now that the incumbent governor of the state and Aregbesola are not in good terms with each other, the group has been functioning as another faction of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Osun State.

Governor Gboyega Oyetola will want to be reelected as the governor of the state, but the incoming Osun State gubernatorial election would be tough because of the fact the opposition party is strong in Osun State presently. Governor Gboyega Oyetola struggled to find a way to beat Senator Ademola Adeleke in the previous gubernatorial in the state, and the next election may be like that one as well.

The All Progressive Congress (APC) is currently divided in Osun State because of the fact there are two factions of the party in the state. When the party was united in the previous Osun State gubernatorial election, the members of the party have to manage to outsmart the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the year 2018 gubernatorial election. Now that the party is divided, the opposition party can easily take advantage of the division in Osun State.

The opposition party can take advantage of the crisis battling the ruling party by strengthening the power of the opposition party by clearing off the factions in the party. As it has been noted that Ademola Adeleke and Akin Ogunbiyi's factions are not relenting in the governorship race in Osun State. The leaders of the party should call the two politicians in the party and settle things amicably in order for them to project a candidate while the ruling party is still divided.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) can take advantage of the problem that the ruling party is going through by sorting out the crisis in the opposition party and by projecting a single candidate ahead of the ruling party. Many people in the state would have known the flag bearer of the party before the ruling party gets to settle its lingering crisis in Osun.
