Biodun Olujimi: PDP is the change Nigerians yearn for

Mrs Biodun Olujimi, a senator representing Nigeria's Ekiti South Senatorial District, has declared that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is still the party that would bring about the change Nigerians need to overcome the country's current problems.

Mrs Biodun Olujimi, a senator representing Nigeria’s Ekiti South Senatorial District, has declared that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is still the party that would bring about the change Nigerians need to overcome the country’s current economic, security, and other problems.

She claimed that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), and herself would win the 2023 elections because of the current mindset of Nigerians.

Olujimi, confident that the People’s Democratic Party would win the elections, was ecstatic to report that his party was unshaken by the All Progressives Congress’ (APC) incumbency advantage.

While in Ado Ekiti, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Aviation congratulated Yeye Gbobaniyi of Ogotun Ekiti on the chieftaincy title bestowed upon her by Ologotun, Oba Adebayo Adesanmi.

“PDP represents the kind of change that Nigerians long for.” She said, “for the PDP and our presidential candidate, the horizon is very bright for us”, in reference to the party’s prospects in the upcoming election. She confidently predicted that “by the grace of God, Alhaji Atiku will win the next election” because “we know how to turn things around.”

Olujimi, who is running for reelection and is confident of victory thanks to her record of accomplishments during her eight years in the Senate, claims that her major opponent, Hon. Yemi Adaramodu of the APC will be unable to compete with her.

Furthermore, she stated, “Ogotun Ekiti has always been a home for me. They have been standing by me and for me throughout my political career. I have also been contributing my quota to the development of the town. It is in reciprocation for that contribution that they honoured me on Saturday.

“And to whom much is given, much is expected. I will continue to serve our people better than they have. We are happy that what we have been able to do was being appreciated, and we are relying on this to win the coming election.”

“I am not daunted at all. I have contested twice in the six local governments. I know Hon Adaramodu quite well. He is a politician we know ourselves. But he had only contested in three of the six council areas in this district, so we are confident that we will make it.

“Our optimism that we will make it is not for anything, but we have done so much for our people. They want continuity. They don’t need a new person”.

Olujimi said that the smear campaign waged against her by her political opponents was helping her win the popular vote and unseat them.

On the current problem in the Ekiti State House of Assembly, the federal lawmaker has urged Governor Biodun Oyebanji, as a stakeholder, to rapidly find ways of brokering peace among opposing parties in the troubled Ekiti Assembly over the festering leadership crisis in the house.

As Olujimi put it, “The matter will be settled. The government of the day always wants those that will represent their interest at the Parliament. I know the government of the day will look for a way to resolve the issue for the sake of our peace and stability”.
