The chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Oyo State, Alhaji Kunmi Mustapha, has assured that Governor Seyi Makinde would not renege on pre-election agreements he had with the African Democratic Congress, ADC, Zenith Labour Party, ZLP and Social Democratic Party, SDP in the state.
It will be recalled that the governorship candidates of the ADC, ZLP and SDP stepped down and adopted Makinde of the PDP during the just concluded 2019 election.
There are news that there have been fears over whether or not Makinde would fulfill the promises made to the parties.
It therefore gathered that the ADC and ZLP will take 30 and 15 per cent respectively while the SDP will be given 5 per cent in the sharing fomula.
Mustapha, who spoke on Thursday while briefing newsmen in Ibadan, disclosed that all stakeholders were meeting regularly on how best to handle the matter.
The Iseyin-born politician explained that there was no cause for alarm as the party would keep to its promise.
This is just as he vowed to take over the five states in the South West geopolitical zone in future elections.
He said efforts were on to ensure massive supports of the electorates, especially in Oyo and Osun States before the next elections.
“Presently, we are targeting Osun and Ondo states and we are working tirelessly to capture these states,” he said.
The chairman promised that the excellent performance of the PDP-led government in Oyo State would enhance its chances in future elections.
On the inauguration of the ninth State Assembly where PDP had 26 out of 32 members, Mustapha urged the lawmakers especially PDP members to unite and stand firm with Governor Seyi Makinde.
He admonished them to resist any temptation of working against the interest of the ruling party in the state.
He also called on the state legislature to make laws that would enhance the actualisation of good policies and programmes of the state government.
The chairman disclosed that some contracts awarded by the immediate past administration would be reviewed.
”The governor has said that he has no interest in stepping on toes but if the condition warrants it, he will do so in the overall interest of the state.” Mustapha said.
