Let's change Senator Mudasiru Hussein name as APC candidate to Hon Olubunmi Patricia Etteh, Hussein can't win this coming bye- Election- Chief Oladele Olajire advises Governor Rauf Aregbesola.
There was controversies at Osun state governor's house yesterday as Apc elders caucus from Iwo zone led by Chief Oladele Olajire informed governor Rauf Aregbesola that Senator Mudashiru Hussein can not lead Apc to victory in the forthcoming bye election of Osun west senatorial district and advised Aregbesola and leadership of Apc to replace his name with former speaker of House of Representatives Hon Olubunmi Etteh.
Hon Olubunmi Foluke Etteh is a grassroot politician,she represented the Ayedaade/Isokan/Irewole federal constituency in Osun State, She was initially elected in 1999 as an Alliance for Democracy (AD) member, but switched to the People's Democratic Party (PDP) when running for re-election in 2003,Etteh is one of the APC strong political leader in Irewole local government,She was elected to the position of speaker unanimously in June 2007, and is the only woman to have held this position in the Nigerian government.
Senator Mudasiru Hussein candidacy is a wrong permutation at this time, How can Speaker of the house of assembly Hon Najeem Salam come from Ejigbo,Member of House Representative Hon Mojeed Alabi also from Ejigbo and Apc will go to the same town to pick Senate candidate Mudashiru Hussein.
Osun Apc is confused, Vote Ademola Adeleke! ,Vote PDP!!!!

PDP leader in Osun State Otunba Iyiola Omisore has urged all democrats to cast their votes for Ademola Adeleke in the coming Osun west bye election.
Speaking in his house in Ile Ife when the senatorial candidate of the party paid a solidarity visit to him, Omisore said the election of Ademola became necessary because of the mysterious death of his brother.
He stressed the need for all and sundry to vote for Ademola Adeleke for him to complete the tenure of his late brother and also to sympathise with the family over the untimely demise of the late senator.
Senator Omisore stated that since we are all mortals we are all bound to return to our creator one day adding that he would do everything within his capacity to ensure that victory comes the way of the party during the election.
He called on all the factions in the party to close ranks and admonished those feeding fat on the crisis in the party in Osun to desist from such henceforth.
Earlier the former speaker of Osun State House of Assembly Hon Adejare Bello while introducing those in the entourage of the senatorial candidate, said he was happy to re unite with Omisore adding that without the support of Otunba Omisore it wouldn't be possible to coast home victory in the coming election.
He spoke further that the need to win the coming election necessitated the coming together of the two groups in Osun to support the family of Adeleke.
He pointed out the the alliance was based on equal partnership adding that the candidate does not belong to any of the two factions in Osun State PDP.
He revealed that the coming together to work for the candidate was the handiwork of Otunba Omisore and other notable leaders like Dr olu Alabi, Oluomo Tajudeen Oladipo and few others.
In his remarks Barrister Ojo Williams who led the negotiation team from Omisore's group allayed the fears of some members of the group that they've been traded off.
He re echoed Otunba Omisore's statement on the needs to give sympathetic votes to Adeleke's family as a compensation for the loss the family suffered as a result of the death of the late Senator .
He advised social media critics from both sides to sheath their swords adding that they should shun any publication that could jeopardise the chance of the candidate
He stated further that in Yoruba land only a younger brother is allowed to inherit from what his older brother left behind not the other way round, hence the need for supporting Ademola Adeleke as a compensation for the death of his brother
The senatorial candidate Dr Ademola Adeleke in his response said he has little or nothing to say, pointing out that he has come back to where he belongs.
" It's true that we left PDP for APC as a result of minor misunderstandings but I can tell you that during our short sojourn in APC the souls of all Adelekes were here" .
The party chairman Dr Bayo Faforiji also urged all members of the party to work together as a team to ensure that the party wins the election
He pointed out that people of the state were looking forward to the party to lift them out of the abyss of abject poverty that APC administration in the state has plunged them into.

Good Afternoon Gentleman of the press. We are all not unaware of the Leadership of problem rocking our party, which we are awaiting the decision of the Supreme Court to end the crisis. This is why the party needs experienced, knowledgeable, articulate and a gentleman, leadership at all levels.
By extension, the Alimodu Sheriff group of Lagos PDP, with the special interest of Senator Buruji Kashamu, also took advantage of the crisis, connive with APC to reduce the chances of PDP Success in the coming Lagos State Council Election.
They came with several violent actions to disturb the smooth running of Salvador led PDP administration in Lagos State. But with Salvador leadership quality and experience, he refused to distracted and failed their plans.
You may recall the press statement of one Mr Segun Adewale in May 2017 promising to accept the Leadership if Salvador and his readiness to be Vice Chairman to Salvador.
This Sheriff group broke the promises immediately it was made. They knew that they are less than 10% of the PDP membership in Lagos State. This shows why they only believe in violence for every move made and they lack quality and reliable leadership with no visible elders and leaders.
Makarfi group of Lagos PDP led by Hon Moshood Adegoke Salvador has over 90% of the real membership of PDP in Lagos State. We are therefore the real authentic PDP because politics is all about the people. Our main objective is to serve the nation, our objective is to serve our members, our objective is to actualize the dreams of our teaming members by creating opportunities for them to contest election and win. This is how they can be in government to serve their Community.
The people of Lagos are very ready to vote PDP into Power at this local government election because APC did nothing to the people at the local government level. All local government road are bad, no community health care centers again, no sanitation / environmental service again and so on.
This is why we are determined and ready to make the positive change in all the local government area and the local council development area. We also pledge that we will not disappoint the public when voted into power.
I refuse to be distributed, the Makarfi group of PDP under the leadership of Hon Moshood Salvador has refused to allow their teaming members disenfranchised. If legal solution us being delayed, we have taken to political solution to Form a political alliance.
"Political alliance is an agreement for cooperation between different Political parties on common Political agenda, often for the purpose of contesting an election "
We are PDP any day and anytime. We only have a Pre-electoral Political alliance with Labour Party to contest this coming Local Government election only. This is not the first time of this type of alliance in Nigeria.
The first experience of Pre-electoral Alliance in Nigeria was in 1999 when defunct All People Party [APP] and Alliance for Democracy [AD] formed an alliance to contest Presidential election, with Chief Olu Falae of AD as Presidential candidate and Umaru Shinkafi of APP as the Vice Presidential candidate.
Again in 2003, Alliance for Democracy [AD] of Lagos State, had an alliance with PAC under the leadership of Late Alhaji Olawale Dawodu.
Also recently in 2017, Delta State, PDP Han an alliance with Accord Party to defeat APC in their last election.
I am now appealing to all lovers and sympathizers of PDP in Lagos State to cast their vote for "Labour PDP alliance" and vote Labour Party. It is an alliance. We never decamped to any party. We never declared for another party and we never dumped our dear PDP. We are the PDP strength in Lagos State. In this pre-electoral alliance, we have 342 Councillorship Candidates and 52 Chairmanship Candidates.
As from this very moment, I now declare that all our candidates must start pasting their posters, commence the house to house campaigns and educate electorates on the circumstance of our using Labour Party for this Council Election only.
The L.G.A Chairmen, the Ward Chairmen and all our LCDA Chairmen must start work tirelessly to educate the public on our circumstance of this Council Election and work closely with all their Labour Party counterparts and candidates in their various Local Governments
God bless you all.
Hon Moshood Adegoke Salvador
