The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said it is certain of winning the November 11 governorship election in Imo, Bayelsa and Kogi States, going by the level of its acceptability by the people.
The acting National Chairman, PDP, Umar Damagum, said this in Abuja at the inauguration of the party’s National Campaign Council for the election in the three states.
Damagum urged members of the council to work within the law to win the three states, which he described as PDP strongholds.
He said, “What’s expected of you is to go there and remind them that this isn’t what we bargained for, and that there’s a time God in his infinite mercy, always gives us to change the course of history, and this is the time.
“We’ll have Bayelsa, we’ll have Imo and we’ll have Kogi. These are PDP states. Somehow, they slipped away but Bayelsa has always had a PDP governor.”
Also speaking, Osun State governor Ademola Adeleke, who is also the chairman of the Kogi State campaign team, expressed confidence in the PDP’s ability to win the governorship election in the three states.
According to Adeleke, the chances of the party in Imo, Bayelsa and Kogi are ‘very great.’
