A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and member representing Obokun/ Oriade Federal Constituency of Osun State, Hon. Wole Oke, has said that Oyo state governor, Seyi Makinde was the best person that should lead the party in the South West going by norms and traditional as the only sitting governor in the zone.
In a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday, Hon Oke said that by convention and practices, Makinde, “who is the only PDP governor in the South West, emerges as leader of the zone.”
He advised loyal and committed member of PDP family not to challenge the noble arrangement in the overall interest of the party.
Explaining why Makinde should be the leader, Oke reeled out his qualifications that qualified him to hold that position.
According to him, “aside convention and practices he brings on board decency, finesse, humility and decorum. He cares and love his fellow party men.
“He’s educated, deep and exposed. He has lot of experience and core professionals before coming into power. We can gain a lot from him.”
While cautioning Party members and leaders against interfering in this position, the law maker said “anybody grandstanding is on his own, the party is greater than anybody”.
The lawmaker, who is also the Chairman of the House Committee on Public Accounts (PAC), however, urged leaders from the zone to support Makinde’s leadership for progress and unity of the Party ahead of the 2023 general Elections.
