Share This

By Nuel Suji – The chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Lagos State Chapter, Moshood Salvador has appealed to Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike to assist financially in order to counter former governor of the state, Bola Tinubu’s candidate in the 2019 governorship election.

Mr.  Salvador who spoke while welcoming Mr. Secondus to Lagos state on his campaign tour described Tinubu as a monster with deep pocket than federal government.

In his words,“The problem of Lagos State is not unknown to you. We have a monster that has a deeper pocket than the Federal Government. We have a monster here that has all the nonsensical ways of pulling people down and collecting their rights. I am appealing to you and Governor Nyesom Wike to extend assistance to us by making sure we dislodge APC in 2019.

“We have our strategies. We have our roadmap. We are going to look at it and digest it. This Lagos State PDP executive committee is about seven days old. We are ready to win Lagos in 2019. That is our goal, our target and what we want.”

Salvador, who extolled the rare virtues of Bode George, urged the leadership and party members to consider the interest of the South-West zone.

“I appreciate your recognition of Chief Olabode George as your leader and boss. Bode George is our project. I am an advocate of South-West zoning. The chairmanship position must be zoned to South-West. You were in Port-Harcourt when former governor of Rivers State got up and gave reasons why it should come to South-West. Your goal is to make sure PDP wins. APC national chairman is from the South-South because the ruling party is weak there. PDP is strong in the South-South. The weakest area of PDP is South-West and to make sure the party wins, we have to straighten that area. We are party men. That is why we are welcoming you. It is not about one man’s interest. It is about the interest of the party.”

Salvador further stated that George pragmatism found full expression in his approach to conflict resolution, which was clear in the peace the party is enjoying today.

“I have to congratulate Prince Uche Secondus for meeting us in perfect unity. You have been at the helm for quite a long time and you know the problems of Lagos State. We have to give kudos to our leader, Chief Olabode George and some other leaders in and outside Lagos State that tried all possible best to make sure you meet Lagos PDP in peace.

“It is only in a peaceful manner that we can win election; where there won’t be Pull Him Down syndrome, anti-party and all of us will sit-down and solve the problems of the party together” he added.
