Deji Adebayo, Akure
A former Ondo South Senator in the eighth Assembly and Candidate of the APC during the 2019 General election, Senator Yele Omogunwa and Candidate of the AA in the last general election, Dr Olatunji Feda has officially joined the main opposition People’s Democratic Party, after attending Stakeholders’ meeting of the PDP at the Party’s state Secretariat in Akure, the Ondo State Capital.
In a report by the Directorate of Media and Publicity of PDP in Ondo State and made available by Leye Igbabo, reads; while introducing the returnees to the leaders of the Party in Akure, the State Chairman of PDP, Hon. Fatai Adams told leaders that the coming back of the Distinguished Senator was the handiwork of God and a sign of victory for the party.
Adams also said since the majestic return of Dr Olatunji Feda to the party, he has proved his worth and left no one in doubt, as to his determination to strengthen the party in all ways. The Chairman therefore enjoined leaders and members of the party to give them their due recognition as full members of the party.
Senator Omogunwa while addressing the leaders of the party at the meeting, said what he did was to simply retrace his step to his source.
Sen. Omogunwa said; “Nobody actually pressurized me to come back to the party. I only realized that I had gone on a wrong voyage and needed to retrace my steps. I took a defective flight that landed me in the wilderness but I have taken a better flight now and I have arrived safely to the party.
“I need to let you know that I have not come to pursue any personal ambition here. I have only come back to my source. I thank leaders who have been holding the party together. No doubt, PDP is faring good and great but we also intend to make it fare better and greater.
“Although I am not a prophet, I am a pastor. I see hope in the PDP’s struggle and I don’t doubt the victory of the party at the Supreme Court. I am here to add value to the party and I brought some of my coordinators here. We have started the work, there is no going back” The senator concluded.
In like manner, Dr Olatunji Feda who contested with Senator Yele Omogunwa for the Southern Senatorial seat during the 2019 general election under the platform of AA, said his decision to join PDP was borne out of concern for the good of the people. He said PDP has always been touching lives of the people with far-reaching, innovative programmes and would love to be in a party that makes the interest of the people, its top priority.
Leaders of the party had earlier described Sen. Yele Omogunwa as an offspring of the men of Issachar who knew the time and the season to operate, describing his presence in the party as a confirmation of success for PDP in the months ahead.
The Party Leaders therefore warn his (Sen. Omogunwa) critics to exercise caution in attacking such unusual personality who is only being directed from above on when to halt and when to move. Party leaders specially welcomed the duo back to the party and assured them of their support at all times.
