PDP Aspirant Sues For Peace


A member of the People’s Democratic Party and an aspirant for the House of Representatives from Agege  Local Government Area, Adejumo Abiodun Ogedengbe, has appealed to party members in the area to  maintain peace.

Ogedengbe made the appeal following a protest staged by members to protest the party’s decision to  field the son of a prominent leader of the party in the area for the seat.

Ogedengbe, a two-time chairmanship aspirant in Agege, said he believed in the leadership of the party  ”because they will never do anything contrary to the will of the people.

“I will never for any reason support violence. That should be the last thing a right thinking person  should do. We must not allow our emotion to overrule our sense of thinking, because this is a party  that I have worked and given everything for. I will not want it to disintegrate.

“Honestly, I still believe it is a party affair and I believe that everything will be resolved in the  interest of everybody.

“For the party to have given the ticket to any other person, that will mean that they know what I  don’t know and if they can convince me, I will go back to my supporters and we shall all work for the  success of the party.”

Ogedengbe called on the party leaders to do what is just and right.

“I will want our leaders to be just in whatever they do; we believe in them and they should do what is  right,” Ogedengbe stated.

Some party members from Agege Local Government Area on Monday protested what they called imposition of  a stranger to represent them in the House of Representatives in the coming election.
