Abuja - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) hopes to build on its victory in the Ekiti governorship election to win a similar poll in the Osun State.
The Osun election is scheduled for August 9.
The party, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, said it was not resting on its oars but was working harder than ever to ensure victory in the polls.
It noted that the factors which gave it victory in Ekiti, including a popular candidate with grass root appeal, strong and well accepted message as well as the humble and effective leadership of its leader, President Goodluck Jonathan, were still at play.
It downplayed the opposition All Progressives Congress' chances.
"APC has engaged in political gallivanting, rigmarole and ineffective propaganda in the media without focusing on the fact that only the votes of the people will count on election day," PDP stated.
The ruling party urged Nigerians to note that whilst the APC leaders were allegedly focused on "a campaign of calumny, character assassination and creating confusion", the PDP was sensitizing, appealing and campaigning to the people while strengthening and expanding its support base in the state.
“We want them to note that whereas our candidate and supporters have been engaged in vigorous all-inclusive campaign in all the nooks and crannies of the state, the APC, detached from the people and ignoring the reality that the South West voters are tired of fake progressives, has stuck to out-worn triumphant cliches and tactics like it did in Ekiti."
