The Lagos State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party PDP has expressed satisfaction and support for the emergence of Ekiti State governor, Peter Ayodele Fayose, as the chairman of the PDP Governors Forum.
The state chapter opines that the onerous task to rescue the party now partly resting on the governor is one that any genuine member of the party who is truly interested in the return of PDP to Presidency should support with all that is possible.
Sharing the party’s opinion is the Lagos State chairman of the party and former member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Moshood Salvador.
Salvador however recommends to the governor to take advantage of this new role to facilitate genuine long lasting mobilization, reconciliation and structural dynamism in the party to meet up with the modern challenges of nation building, and to particularly override the assumed superiority of the APC in the nation’s politics. In achieving this objectives, Hon. Salvador advised governor Fayose to infuse the party state chairmen into an extended forum where party issues can be shared first-hand, especially with states where the PDP is not in government.
The state chapter prayed for the success of the governor and entire forum.
“We are pleased with the emergence of Dr. Ayodele Fayose as the new chairman of PDP governors’ forum. We are convinced that this emergence will radically reposition the party. We particularly rely on his doggedness, long term experience as Oldest serving governor in the nation and his love for popular say & way. He should immediately begin the reconciliation of members, elders and youths alike.
He should not be demoralized nor distracted by hate speeches against him, many of which will be sponsored by his detractors within and outside the PDP.
“In Lagos State, we expect that he will use his new leadership and role to get closer to our leaders and elders who have at different times and levels served the party and nation meritoriously. He should shun any side talk or blackmail to ignore these elders and leaders. Indeed he needs their experience to add up for his best success,” Salvador said.
