The Acting National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ambassador Umar Iliya Damagun on Thursday inaugurated National Campaign Councils for Edo and Ondo States scheduled to hold in September and November, 2024 respectively.

The event was held at the NEC Hall, Wadata Plaza, Abuja.

Kennedy Ikantu Peretei, State Publicity Secretary of the PDP in Ondo State in a press statement made available to newsmen reports that Amb. Damagun hailed PDP members in Edo and Ondo States for raising the bar in internal democracy which produced the party’s Candidates in the two States.

He, however lampooned President Bola Ahmed Tinubu who boasted that he was going to deliver Edo State to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the September election. “Mr President has apparently forgotten that, he failed in his previous attempt to snatch Edo State. He has also forgotten the slogan then that Edo No Be Lagos”, he said.

“We will not sit down here and allow anybody to steal how mandate in either Edo or Ondo State. Our records in Edo State under Godwin Obaseki speak volumes. So we are sure to have Edo State back to back.” Damagun added.

“For Ondo State, what we have seen is very encouraging. The people have resolved to re-occupy their rightful place in the scheme of things. The antics of the APC will surely fail in Ondo State. They are already campaigning for us by the way and manner they have run the affairs of our country.”

Delivering a Goodwill Message at the event, former National Vice-chairman, South West, Dr Eddy Olafeso assured the national leadership of the party that, Ondo State PDP is more united than anytime before since the emergence of HE Agboola Alfred Ajayi as the Governorship Candidate of the party. “Nigerians have been battered and humiliated by the APC government, we need to bring Nigerians out from the slavery and bondage in which we are” Olafeso said.

H.E Rt Hon Umar Ahmadu Fintiri was inaugurated as Chairman of the National Campaign Council for Edo State,while H.E Sen. Ademola Adeleke was inaugurated as Chairman on National Campaign Council for Ondo State.


The inauguration was well attended by Council members including serving Governors, Senators and House of Representatives Members.
