A chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in Ondo State, Olusola Oke, has joined the list of personalities congratulating the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, over his victory in the March 28 polls.
In a press statement, Mr. Oke, who was the governorship candidate for the PDP in Ondo state in the last gubernatorial elections, said the victory was well-deserved for Mr. Buhari.
He said the PDP was in a way the architect of its own misfortunes.
“The victory is a testimony to the supremacy of the power of the electorates in a democracy,” Mr. Oke said. “The president-elect worked, persevered and dedicated to his aspiration, today; the majority of Nigerians have chosen you through their votes. It has been a long work to victory.”
Mr. listed factors he said were responsible for the PDP loss.
“Poor leadership, injustice and mismanagement of opportunities available to the party are the vices that sentenced the party out of power,” he said.
Despite the shock loss recorded by PDP in Ondo, a state controlled by the party, Mr. Oke said the PDP has contributed its quota in building a strong and united Nigeria.
“I congratulate our supporters in and outside Ondo State for remaining focused despite distractions, provocations, frustration and ill-treatment,” he said.
“Our resolve to contribute our quota to making Nigeria a prosperous, united and developed nation remained unshaken despite this development. It is all for and about democracy,” he said.
