The vice president, who heads the committees for both states, said that PDP would reclaim the entire South-West in the 2015 general elections.

He maintained that Ekiti and Osun were PDP states, but were somehow stolen from the party by the opposition.

“By inaugurating us today, we will go to the war front and bring back our stolen mandate. Everybody knows that Ekiti belongs to PDP but people used different ways to take it from us. Osun is PDP state but it was stolen from us.

“The end of stealing has come. There will be free and fair election,’’ the vice president assured.
