One of the candidates for the position of the Southwestern National Vice Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Eddy Olafeso has called for a free, fair and credible election holding Monday. 

Olafeso, in interview with our correspondent at Osogbo, Osun state capital, pledged to congratulate his opponent, Amb. Taofeek Arapaja, if defeated in the election as far as the conduct ended without any irregularity recorded.

NATIONAL PANEL gathered that Olafeso is the candidate of the faction -led by former Ekiti Governor Ayo Fayose and he is contesting along with Rev. Bunmi Jenyo as zonal secretary.

He is the immediate past National Vice Chairman of the party in Southwest, and however, stated that is participation to contest the election should not be a do-or-die affair because it is about serving people.

“For me, I have handed over my life to God’s hands. If I win, it will be exciting, if not, it is God’s will, but the election must be free, fair and credible,” he said.

He disclosed his efforts which led to the engagement of stakeholders to unite and strengthen the party in the region during his last tenure, which ended last year.

He also assured of building on his records if he is returned office.

He decried a situation where the party is governing only one of the six states in the region, saying the PDP needed to work harder to regain its status as the leading political party in the region.

Olafeso emphasised that members of the PDP in the region are brothers and sisters, stressing that nerves will calm down after the congress to pave the way for cooperation and rebuilding of the party again.

Meanwhile, the election process was reported to have commenced.
