Ilorin - Iyiola Oyedepo, PDP Chairman in Kwara, on Monday said the state chapter would replicate the victory recorded by the party in Ekiti State in Saturday’s governorship election.
Oyedepo gave the assurance in Ilorin while addressing party supporters during a solidarity rally to celebrate the success of the governor-elect of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose.
He said the PDP family in Kwara was very happy and joyous over the defeat of APC Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, by the PDP.
“Yes, we are deeply happy in Kwara because we can see our own victory around the corner.
“Our sister state, Ekiti, ruled by APC lost to PDP in a fairly and credibly conducted election on Saturday,” the chairman said.
Oyedepo commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for free, fair and credible polls and urged it to continue to midwife credible elections in the country.
He declared that APC could never win any election in the state in a free and fair atmosphere.
PDP supporters were in joyous mood as they sang, danced and made merry for the victory.
Some PDP members carried placards with inscriptions like “as in Ekiti, so shall it be in Kwara”, “victory for Ekiti, victory for all”, and “Kwara PDP for better change”.
