2023: We’ll Dump PDP if Leaders Impose Candidates On Us – Members tell Makinde



Some members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Oyo State, have said that they will have no option than to dump the party if its leaders and cabals impose candidates on them.

The PDP members, under the umbrella of Concerned People Frontiers (CPF), made this disclosure during an emergency meeting held in Ibadan on Monday.

Recall that the primary elections of the party will hold this month.

CPF has then raised an alarm that some leaders and cabals in the party have perfected plans to impose candidates on the members ahead of the 2023 elections.

The group said that some leaders and cabal within the party are planning to impose some aspirants over others through kangaroo primaries in some constituencies across the state.

The Coordinator of the group, Adewale Ajani; and Secretary, Kunle Fasasi, while speaking after the meeting, appealed to Governor Seyi Makinde to guide against any attempt to impose candidates on the members.

The duo urged Makinde to caution leaders and cabal who intend to impose candidates on others in order not to create more division in the party.

“We want to use this medium to appeal to his excellency, Governor Makinde as the father of all in our great party, the PDP, to appeal to those planning consensus and imposition of candidates through kangaroo primaries to desist from such act.

“Information available to us is that some cabal within the party, who have their tentacles across various constituencies, are planning kangaroo primaries where consensus has failed.

“We got to know that they have perfected plan to fill the ballot boxes with votes of their preferred candidates before the commencement of the primaries.

“Any attempt to do that will be resisted and if they succeed with the help of thugs, we would have no option than to dump the party.

“We have resolved to support and rally round any aspirant that may emerge as candidates if the primaries are free, fair and they follow democratic tenets,” they said.

-Kunle Bakare.
