Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) caretaker committee, Ahmed Makarfi has said the victory of the party at the Osun senatorial poll was an indication that PDP was still the “party to beat in every election.”
In a statement on Sunday by the spokesman of the Makarfi group, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, the party said it was confident Adeleke would deliver his promises.
The statement said: “The people have spoken with one voice and we know that Ademola Adeleke will deliver on his promises to the people.
“The successful outcome of this election is an evidence of hard work, dedication and the unity of all members of the PDP in Osun State who buried temporary differences in the overall interest of the party and the good people of Osun State.
“We are confident that without the interference of the APC in the current leadership issues in our party, the PDP remains the party to beat in all elections in Nigeria.
“Even as we await the judgment of the Supreme Court, we urge our members to unite in the interest of Nigerians to rid the country of the horrible APC government.
“Finally, we congratulate the people of Osun West for coming out en mass to vote for our candidate and for their peaceful conduct during the election. We also congratulate our members in Osun State for this important victory.”
