The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the weekend queued behind Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State as the leader of the party in the South West.
The Lagos PDP leaders, who made the declaration after a meeting with Governor Makinde in Ibadan, said they were highly appreciative of the outstanding role the governor has played in the party.
The party leaders also pledged their unflinching loyalty to the leadership of Governor Makinde in the South West PDP, adding that his leadership style was exemplary.
Governor Makinde and the former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, have both been claiming the leadership of the party in recent times.
The Deputy Chairman of the PDP in Lagos State, Alhaji Waliu Hassan, and a former House of Representatives member, Hon Rita Orji, who spoke to newsmen shortly after a stakeholders’ meeting held at the Government House, Agodi, Ibadan, urged the governor to continue with his leadership role and never relent in showing leadership.
