Under the aegis of the PDP Youth Congress (PDPYC), South-West PDP youths have asked Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State to beg the son of President Muhammadu Buhari, Yusuf Buhari, or the son of Senator Bola Tinubu, Seyi, to come to the PDP and lead the party at the national level.
The group said this while warning the Governor against moves to bring back Gbenga Daniel, the former Governor of Ogun State, to the PDP.
By bringing in Tinubu and Buhari’s sons, the youth group said it would become clearer that the PDP was now fully sold to the APC.
The PDP youth said that anyone who begs Daniel to return to the party does not want the party to progress, describing him as a traitor.
The youth group replied to calls from a delegation led by Governor Seyi Makinde to call for Daniel’s return to the PDP to lead the party in Ogun State.
In a statement on Thursday, the PDPYC said it was amusing that desperation for new allies, having lost control of the South West faction, led Governor Makinde to run for people like Daniel, who betrayed the PDP immediately after the presidential election.
The declaration was signed by its convener, Comrade Oluwole Durojaiye, who insisted that the youth of the South-West PDP would not sit back and allow Makinde to bring ants infested with woods into the party only because he wanted new political allies.
Recall that Gbenga Daniel dumped the PDP immediately after President Muhammadu Buhari defeated Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in the 2019 presidential election despite being the Director-General of the Atiku presidential campaign.
“The question is, would Otunba Gbenga Daniel have dumped the PDP as he did in 2019 if Atiku had won the presidential election?” The group asked.
The youths further warned the Oyo State Governor to tread cautiously in his quest to sustain his rebellion against established positions of the PDP NWC and NEC.
“As far as we are concerned, Gbenga Daniel acted like a mole during the election and it was actions of traitors like him that cost PDP that election. As at today, all his right-hand men are in APC.
“Presently, his hotel in Abeokuta is where APC activities do hold and he was still in a meeting with Governor Dapo Abiodun a few days ago,” they said.
The youths said Governor Makinde should rather go in search of Governor Dapo Abiodun or Senator Ibikunle Amosun and beg them to come and lead PDP.
“Also, Governor Makinde should go a step further by going to beg President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, Yusuf or Senator Bola Tinubu’s son, Seyi, to come to the PDP and lead the party at the national level so that it will be clearer that the party is now completely sold to the APC.”
