The Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Ondo state has assured that it will do everything possible within her resources to emerge victorious in the 2020 gubernatorial election in the state.
The state Chairman of the party, Chief Korede Duyile who disclosed this to journalists in Akure at the weekend said the party has commenced the process of sourcing for people with credible ideology to lead the party towards the coming Governorship election.
According to him, the party, could had won more seats at state and National Assembly levels in 2019 if not for the sake of those he described as money bag politicians who hijacked the system.
He regretted the extent of set back the problem which lack of money has done the party even when nomination forms were given free of charge to some aspirants.
The party, he said, is more careful this time around not to fall prey to political merchants who want to take control of the party for their personal interest.
His words, “the party is on the move to attract credible politicians who we think will have our type of ideology by setting up a committee to chat the way forward for the party in the state”.
Even though the party was able to win Idanre/Ifedore Federal constituency seat in the 2019 general election, he lamented that the party could had done better if there were credible people that could assist the party with enough logistics.
Chief Duyile, who was the pioneer Chairman of the defunct Alliance for Democracy (AD) in the state told journalists that the problem of SDP in the state is not the issue of reorganisation as conversed by some people but that of money.
He however appealed to people of proven integrity to rescue the party to win more seats, adding that complainants should register their grievances to the party for necessary action since blackmail will serve no purpose.
