Discord In Irepodun LGA Over The Selection Of PDP’s Deputy Governor

Concerned citizens of Irewolede axis of Irepodun LGA under the PDP has called on the attention of the party, both at the National and State, to what they termed “an uncalculated risk and fruitless permutations” ongoing in Kwara PDP.

The people of Irepodun LGA has registered their displeasures over the choice of the Deputy Governor and State Assembly positions from the same Aran -Axis.

While protesting the choice, the aggrieved citizens described it as the highest level of misgiving and political failure in the recent political evolutions to have allowed the Deputy Governorship Position to be zoned to an axis that has produced a candidate to represent the constituency at the Kwara State House of Assembly leaving the Irewolede axis with no position.

“This same level of insensitive permutations was done in Ifelodun share constituencies. This is going to push the axis into the brink of losing to the candidate of the Rulling APC who doubles as an incumbent for the same position. This is going to be a political suicide and we will not submit to it neither are we going to be silenced”, they said.

In the piece submitted to the news medium, the concerned citizens further said, “With the level of the political awareness in the country today, we can’t imagine how an experienced think-tank would throw away 74 polling units of 5 wards and the entire Irewolede Axis to settle for the Aran Axis which is already the host of a House of Assembly candidate.”

The aggrieved citizen advised the PDP leaders to look inwards and take caution in looking into the game of the opposition and not to put all eggs in a basket. “We hope that our leaders will be careful in their analyses and that they can see for themselves how calculative the APC was when they presented the House of Representatives’ ticket to candidate from Omuaran and House of Assembly from Irewolede axis.”

The wrong calculation will have Adverse effect on the whole Election come 2023.

Meanwhile the youths in Irewolede has pledged that they will refuse to share from the failure, shame and miscarriage that the miscalculation of the leadership of the party will cost come 2023.

The Paddy Paddy Arrangement is only based on Sentiments and we have been warning the leadership of kwara South PDP long Time ago about placing Issues above Sentiments.Irewolede Is always at the Recieving End at the scheme of things. If Omu Aran can get there 2019 slot back as Acclaimed then why Adding Irewolede slot to Omu Aran slot in 2023 ?

“Failure to plan is planning to fail. I hope that the PDP can be mindful of the fact that it took the current ruling (APC) party 16 years as Opposition to come to power. But God has been magnanimous to PDP. We are here trying to stage a come back to power within just 4 years, the choice is ours.The most sensible thing for Any opposition is to think of Winning Above any Sentiment.2019 Election is Enough to show you the correct Indices. 2023 Election can only be warn with Electorates not with controlled party Mechanism.

As an experienced opposition that we ought to be, we should remain committed to calculations and permutations that will bring us to strategic victory and not otherwise. Let the PDP revisit this choice before it’s too late”, One of the aggrieved citizens. concluded.
