The Peoples Democratic has unanimously agreed that Senator Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke will be the Governorship candidate of the party (PDP) in the 2022 gubernatorial election in Osun State.
The recommendation was part of the highlight of resolutions arrived at a reconciliatory meeting of the Osun PDP, mediated by the national reconciliation team, headed by its chairman and a former Senate President and two-term governor of Kwara State, Dr. Olubukola Saraki.
In the meeting attended by both interest groups from the Osun State Chapter of the PDP, it was also agreed that Sunday Bisi will be the validly recognised chairman of the party in the state.
The meeting was called pursuant to a national reconciliation committee set up by the PDP National Working Committee led by Prince Uche Secondus.
As part of the reconciliation process in the Osun PDP, Saraki assured that the party has noted the concerns raised by Olasoji Adagunodo and that necessary steps will be taken to clear his name over allegations leveled against him as a former state chairman.
While noting that such is not unusual in politics, he advised that Adagunodo be accorded his due respect as a former chairman of the party in the state and that he be carried along in party activities going forward.
DAILY POST recalls that the Court of Appeal sitting in Akure had returned Sunday Bisi to the Chairmanship position of the PDP in Osun State.
