In search of a credible, competent chairman for PDP

Peoples’ Democratic Party Peoples’ Democratic Party

The Peoples’ Democratic Party is currently in search of a charismatic leader, the National Chairman for the Party. The searchlight is beamed at the Southwestern states though there are emerging forerunners coming from different geopolitical zones of the country with their integral structures.

To ensure justice and fairness, the South-West region that has not enjoyed the slot of national chairmanship should be given the opportunity to lead the party and return the party to power as the national convention of the PDP approaches.

The time is now for the largest political party in Africa to produce a competent, consistent and all-rounded National leader from the South-West region who could garner an all-inclusive support from the grass-roots. The time is now to garner all resources and ensure that His Excellency, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, a former military administrator of Lagos State and ex-civilian governor of Osun State is elected as the next National Chairman of the PDP.

The impeccable public administrative record of Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola has put him on an incontrovertible pedestal of leadership in the country. Prince Oyinlola is well respected and highly regarded based on his outstanding achievements in the previous public offices he has held.

Oyinlola’s past positions have demonstrated his prodigious capacity as a celebrated manager and leader of men and resources. Having served in different roles of public trust, it is crystal clear that Oyinlola is reliable, dependable and trustworthy. He can be trusted owing to his purposeful and resourceful approaches to providing time tested solutions to the challenges that confront our society.

Oyinlola, commonly referred to as ÓYIN (meaning, honey), if elected as the National Chairman of the PDP will turn the tide of history for the party especially at this auspicious moment. He is the most far-reaching and admirable personality amongst other candidates running for the seat.

The national chairmanship of Oyinlola will be more appealing to Nigerians knowing his antecedents and administrative skills. Oyinlola is the foremost candidate in the forthcoming PDP national convention. His candidacy will be acceptable to Nigerians as there has been a clarion call for an upright, resourceful, detribalised, tolerant and admirable politician to lead our party at this time to reform and return the party to electoral victory. The present reality is that the party needs a leader of leaders to unite, heal and prepare the party for the task ahead.

Oyinlola has proven in all ramifications that he is fully prepared for this seemingly insurmountable task. He has the acumen to lead the PDP. He is a relationship builder, approachable, a team player, a critical thinker, emotionally matured and prepared for the job.

The election of Oyinlola as the national chairman of the PDP is a ray of hope for all party members, party admirers, Nigerians and Nigeria as a whole. At these challenging times in our country and our party, PDP needs OYIN to hand over trusted and capable leadership to the party, and peace and prosperity to Nigerians. God bless PDP. God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
