Ondo State Governor, Olusegun Mimiko has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will regain power in 2019.

Mimiko said further that the PDP had already begun the process of taking back power from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The governor made the comments on Thursday, June 18, 2015, during a reception organized for him on his return from Abuja to Akure, the state capital.

He said:

“We must sustain enthusiasm in our party; and as governors who have pivotal roles to play in re-branding our party, we must show in governance term the difference between us and the APC and these are the challenges ahead of us.”

“As opposition party, our engagement will be robust; we must offer alternative policy platform and programme when we criticise one. We must show Nigerians that we are a different party. We will not be abusive in opposing the government and we will praise where it is worthy of praise and criticise in a very robust manner”

Mimiko was appointed Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum on Wednesday, June 17, 2015.
