The Senate Minority Leader, Senator Biodun Olujimi has asked residents, especially members of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti state to remain calm, law-abiding and prayerful in the face of the ongoing impasse that has rocked the party since the PDP lost the July 14 guber polls.
In a statement issued on Thursday and made available to the media by the Special Assistant on Public Communication to Sen. Olujimi, Chief Sanya Atofarati expressed his appreciation to party members and supporters for what he described as their show of loyalty following her adoption as Leader of the party, PDP, in Ekiti State.
Chief Atofarati, however, expressed optimism that the PDP under the leadership of Olujimi will experience uncommon democratic leadership where every opinion will count and every interest will be considered to enable the party come out stronger, victorious and more united.
“As we speak, Senator Olujimi has commenced reconciliation process to bring back all aggrieved members who left the party for one reason or the other and, especially, those who are in the party today but are uncomfortable with its management. They have been talking to us and efforts are in top gear to ensure collectivism is applied this time.
” I, therefore, use this medium to plead with the likes of Senator Awoyelu, Surveyor Biodun Aluko, Ambassador Dare Bejide, Chief Tunde Adeniran, Mr Bisi Omoyeni, Barr. Hon. Tunji Ogunniyi, Hon. Kola Adefemi amongst others. These are leaders who are pioneers of PDP and have sacrificed and contributed immensely to the growth of our party but today, many of them have been neglected for reasons unknown. But the Olujimi leadership will resuscitate the party.” Atofarati said.
