The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has vowed to reclaim states in the South-West region of Nigeria.

According to the Punch, the South-West Zonal Publicity Secretary, Rev. Bunmi Jenyo said that the party will start by winning the Ekiti state governorship election.

Ekiti state is governed by Governor Ayo Fayose, who is also the chairman of the PDP Governors’ forum.

Jenyo also expressed gratitude to all PDP members in the South-West for their firm support during the crisis.

He said “The South-West Zone of the Peoples Democratic Party, under the able leadership of the National Vice-Chairman (South-West), Dr. Eddy Olafeso, hereby expresses profound gratitude to all our leaders and loyal members in the zone, especially for standing by the zonal executives throughout our struggles till this day.

“The appreciation becomes imperative as your unalloyed support, resilience and doggedness for over 14 months ahead of this well-deserved triumph of truth and justice really showed your love for the membership of our great party and Nigerian citizens in general.

“While we look forward to seeing your continuing determination to uphold the cause of justice, equity and good governance in all areas of administration, we cannot but appreciate you for the huge confidence and responsibility reposed in Dr. Eddy Olafeso-led zonal executive.

“Without mincing words, the zonal executive members are happily prepared to pilot the political affairs of the South-West states to an enviable height, with a view to salvaging citizens from the shackles of maladministration that is currently obtainable in the ruling All Progressives Congress.
