A senator representing Ekiti North in the National Assembly, Biodun Olujimi, has said the Peoples Democratic Party will lose the Ekiti state governorship election in 2022 if its leaders fail to unite.
Olujimi said only justice and fairness could resolve the internal crises rocking the party.
The federal lawmaker disclosed this during a meeting of PDP leaders in Ekiti North, at her Omuo Ekiti home town on Saturday.
The leadership crisis rocking Ekiti PDP, had pitched the camp of former governor Ayodele Fayose against that of Olujimi. Before escalating two weeks ago, when parallel executive committees at the ward, local government and state level were chosen.
Olujimi said, “We are where we are today as a result of the dictatorial nature and selfish interest of one man who sees himself as the alpha and omega of the party. But the vast majority of party members across the 16 local government areas of Ekiti are ready to change the order and give everyone a sense of belonging in the management of the party.
“And for us to be able to dislodge APC in the 2022 governorship election, the party must purge itself of impunity and ensure justice, equity and fairness is done. Where there is no justice, equity and fairness, the party can’t win an election.”
