2023: With Or Without Crisis In PDP, APC Will Win- Oguinlewe


By Adedayo Said

Senator Seye Ogunlewe, chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Minister of Works has said that notwithstanding the crisis in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), the ruling party will win the 2023 presidential election.

Ogunlewe who stated this in an interview with Daily Independent said that the ruling party is in control of the 22 states across the country and with that alone, the party has almost 50 per cent of the job of winning an election, stressing that the governor in charge of the state is smart he can win the election in his state.

He said, “We have 22 governors across the state and any election is as good as won. If the governor is smart, the possibility of losing the election is very slim.

“Though everyone will need to work harder because there should be no excuse. The harder you work the better for the party,” he said.

Meanwhile, the former lawmaker said that Governor Nyesom Wike and his other associates in the group of aggrieved five PDP governors (G5) calling for the removal of Senator Iyorchia Ayu, national chairman of PDP are travelling on troubled waters, stressing that it is dangerous to fight the national chairman of a party during an election.

He said, “The party is supreme and the national chairman of the party has a lot of power. The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) doesn’t know Wike during an election or any of the G5 governors during the elections.

“Ayu is the national chairman of the PDP and any instruction he gives during the period of elections is what INEC will listen to.
Ogunlewe added, “He can change the agents of the party during an election. He can do a lot of havoc in their states, and they will lose the election easily. It has happened three times before in Lagos State when I was in PDP, where they changed all our Excos one week before the election.

It is dangerous to fight the national chairman of the party before an election because you can be thoroughly embarrassed because INEC doesn’t know you, it knows Ayu,” he added.
