According to him , his aim of taking the leadership is to strengthen the party ahead of 2023.The members decided to quit what is described as total influence of chief olabode George a former deputy vice national chairman of the party.
The chieftain was totally disappointed that the party couldn’t produce any senatorial seat since 1999.
- According to him, he emerged as the state chairman during the reign of the then national chairman of the party in 2016 to oversee the affairs of the party for 4yrs which will ordinarily be terminated in 2021.” I stepped aside when there were some issues within the party, which doesn’t amount to my resignation as the chairman. Also, he added that chief Olabode George is against the constitution section 46_48 unilaterally picked an acting chairman Dr Adegbola Dominic, our constitution recognises state Executive Committee or Congress as the only means of filling any vacant positions or electing state officers not by fiat as been carried out by chief Olabode George and his cohorts.
- “Adegbola Dominic instead of working to unite the party, he appointed new chairmen in all the local government as against the authentic chairmen recognised by the party, both of them led our party to labour party during the local government election then achieved nothing . They worked against the party because the election funds were not given them
- “We must all wake up from our slumber and put on our thinking caps, the era of senseless fighting or thuggery should be over and we need to think, build and rebuild our party before 2023, we would take over Alausa a, win Senate seats, house of representatives in 2023
- It is not negotiable PDP will take over Lagos state in the next election, he promised.
