Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar on Tuesday vowed to return the South West states to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) if elected president in the forthcoming general elections in 2019.
Atiku, a presidential aspirant of the PDP, made this promise when he visited members and delegates of Oyo state ahead of the forthcoming presidential primary election of the party.
Other bigwigs that welcomed Atiku were Chief Robert Koleoso, Senator Hosea Ayoola Agboola, Chief Jacob Adetoro, Taiwo Oluyemi, Muraina Ajibola and the State Secretary, Alhaji Wasiu Adeleke.
He then urged members of the party to put their differences aside and forge ahead in unity for the party to win Oyo state in the next general election.
Atiku who was accompanied by his Director General of his campaign, Otunba Gbenga Daniel further urged members of the party to work for the interest of the party at all times for them to reclaim the state and the federal government.
Atiku while speaking further described Oyo state as the political headquarters of the South West region which should not be toyed with.
He said, “Oyo is the political headquarters of South West. The people of Oyo state, so let us work together. Let us work for the unity of the party; by the grace of God, we will have PDP in government in 2019 in Oyo state and Nigeria.”
