Ifedayo Adedipe, a winner of the Ondo Central Senatorial District, in the just concluded Ondo PDP primary election, has called for the support of the party members in driving the party to victory in the forthcoming general elections.
Recall that Adedipe, an Akure born Senior Advocate of Nigeria, on Monday got 82 votes in the just concluded PDP primary election to beat the serving senator, Ayo Akinyelure who got 58 votes and followed by the party’s former state chairman, Clement Faboyede who also got 57 votes.
But Adedipe, in a statement made available to journalists in Akure said the PDP has demonstrated its firm hold on the tenets of democracy and its seriousness to continue to represent the Central Senatorial District and eventually take over power in the state.
He said, “I want to sincerely thank all our party leaders and delegates for counting me worthy of their votes, and for the very transparent and peaceful manner in which the election went.
“My sincere appreciation goes to my colleagues on this race; the Distinguished Senator Ayo Akinyelure and Engr. Clement Faboyede, for the very mature campaign they ran and for being true party men. I want to particularly thank them for their spirit of sportsmanship and faith in our great party. We are all brothers and compatriots in the very big PDP family.
“I am not unaware that while the primaries are over, the real work still lies ahead. I therefore call for the support of my co-contestants in the onerous task ahead. I enjoin my colleagues and our teeming party members and indeed the good people of Ondo Central Senatorial District, to please join hands with me in driving our party to victory in the general elections.
“If we work together, we shall arrive our destination faster and in safety. Let us please do this together, so that we can continue to give hope to our people. In the days ahead and after due consultation with party leaders and critical stakeholders, we will begin to put in place structures for the assignments ahead.”
Adedipe, while expressing delight over his victory, therefore, restated his commitment to providing a very good representation for the people of his district if given the opportunity to be the senator.
