We remain committed to fostering a thriving democracy in Ogun - PDP

The Ogun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP)  congratulated Governor Abiodun and the good people of the State over the Supreme Court judgement. 

The party in a statement made available to newsmen in Abeokuta by its Publicity Secretary, Asiwaju Akinloye Bankole, affirmed its commitment to democracy and expressing determination to bounce back in future elections.

The PDP acknowledged the constitutional closure of the matter, recognizing the Apex Court’s affirmation that the petitioners failed to provide sufficient evidence challenging the reelection of Governor Dapo Abiodun. 

As the court asserted the validity of the Governor’s victory, the PDP extended congratulations to Abiodun and the people of Ogun State, emphasising  the party’s unwavering dedication to democratic principles.

 “While we acknowledge the Supreme Court’s ruling, our commitment to fostering a thriving democracy in Ogun State remains resolute. 

The statement read, "we also wish to encourage our loyal party members and unrepentant supporters who have invested all their energy and resources in the fortune of the party to remain strong and maintain optimism as the matter has been conclusively decided by the Apex Court". 

"As a responsible political organization with an unwavering belief in the democratic process, principles and ethics, the PDP has no option but to move forward after the highest court has issued a conclusive judgment on the matter".

"Our great party remains committed and dedicated to fostering a thriving democracy and we will refrain from any action and/or inactions that undermine patriotic efforts of deepening the roots of constitutional democracy in Ogun State and the country at large".

"In the face of this reality, we encourage the good people of Ogun State to remain steadfast, re-dedicate and direct all efforts to the well-being and prosperity of the State as we are confident that another opportunity to serve the State will present itself shortly. We will not allow this momentary setback to dampen our spirits and patriotic resolve to liberate and reposition Ogun State for greatness". 

"Our Candidate, Hon. (Dr.) Oladipupo Olatunde Adebutu remains ever committed to public service and will continue to make himself available whenever the need arises".

"We appreciate all party members and our distinguished leaders across the 20 Local Government Areas in the State, our supporters, Professional bodies, market men and women, business people, traders, journalists, traditional rulers, religious leaders and many others for their unwavering support. Your dedication during the campaigns, at the polls, and throughout the legal proceedings has not gone unnoticed. The peace and development of the State are our utmost priorities".
