The Senate Minority Leader, Mrs Abiodun Olujimi, on Tuesday, said that the defeat of Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State in the last general elections was a mere setback.
Olujimi told Journalists in Ado Ekiti that internal wrangling among PDP members and manipulations by rivals accounted for the poor outing of the party in the state.
She, however, expressed optimism that the party would soon reclaim its leadership position as well as its dominance on the state’s political sphere
Olujimi, a former deputy governor and one-time member of the House of Representatives, currently represents Ekiti North Senatorial District.
Olujimi argued that that the All Progressives Congress-led government in the state had already failed to meet the expectations of the people.
“Whether you like it or not, PDP will bounce back.
“And we are also going to sweep everything next time around
“PDP will bounce back, but we have sheathed our swords to rebuild the party
“What is required of the party is to put its house in order and we have begun moves to reconcile aggrieved individuals within the party
“Those that have left the party for greener pastures will soon return home because they were disenchanted
“The internal crisis will soon be resolved and efforts will be geared toward liberating Ekiti people from the shackles of penury and unemployment among others,’’ she said.
