The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the party’s victory in Edo State has become a major motivation for its members in its desire to take over the reins of governance in the nation’s commercial nerve centre by 2023.
In a press statement by PDP’s spokesperson in Lagos, Taofik Gani, titled ‘Edo victory, we are fired up’, the party said it is now more than ever before prepared to have a strong bid to take over Lagos.
“The PDP, Lagos state chapter, has congratulated Governor Godwin Obaseki, on his re-election as Edo State Governor.
“The Lagos state chapter particularly hailed the Governor for his ability to garner the needed vote to be declared at the first ballot, in the face of rumored federal might.
“To us in Lagos state PDP we have grasped from the well-deserved victory, the renewed commitment, and resoluteness to also win Lagos state to end godfatherism & imposition in Lagos politics.
“As a matter of fact, we are now more ever than before fired up to win Lagos State. We shall manifest this ability in the coming bye-elections in the state and eventually the 2023 general elections.”
