Osun 2022:Leaving PDP Not An Option For Us- Babayemi



Omooba Dotun Babayemi has pointed out that leaving the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State to another political party, has never crossed his mind.

Instead, Babayemi maintained that he has been investing his time and resources in the PDP so as to ensure it emerges victorious at the coming gubernatorial election slated for July 16, 2022 and the 2023 national elections.

Besides, he insisted that what was uppermost in his mind is how the APC-led administration in the state would be sent packing due to the way it has mismanaged the affairs of the state in the last 12 years which has led to decay in all sectors.

Babayemi who made the clarifications in Osogbo on Thursday while addressing his supporters and members of the party across the 30 local government areas of the state at a stakeholders meeting,vowed to continue to work vigorously for the success of the PDP, especially for the state governorship election scheduled for July 16.

He said his insistence on the propriety of his governorship ambition in the PDP, was borne out of his conviction that litigations remain one of the best channels of resolving disputes.

“Besides,it will help in deepening and strengthening the constitutionality of our democracy through different political and legal developments.Also through these frameworks, the horizon of our democracy has continued to be widened for the betterment of all us and those to come” he asserted

He added that he has never thought of defecting from the PDP to any other political party,assuring that he would work assiduously for the success of the party in the state before, during and after the election, imploring his supporters to do same.

“It’s funny that people come up with different political permutations and conspiracy theory to suit their whim and caprices.For me and my people,we remain strongly in PDP and it’s for good. This I can assure you” Babayemi further maintained.

He noted that despite some teething challenges within the party in the state,he was sure that the PDP would coast home to victory at the coming polls.

“So anybody either doing some wuruwuru calculations or permutations that we shall leave the PDP, has totally missed the point. Because we’re firmly rooted in the party and as such,we are not moving an inch out of it.More importantly,we have not deviated from our course and the legitimate path we have chosen; that, we’re pursuing and it will be glorious at the end” Babayemi asserted.

He then appealed to his teeming supporters not to nurse the idea of defecting from PDP to any other party but rather they should embark on the mission of wooing more electorate into the fold of the PDP, noting; “that’s the only thing can see us through to our envisioned Promised Land”
