Ex-minister Babatope says PDP, Adeleke will defeat APC in Osun

Chief Ebenezer Babatope
A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Ebenezer Babatope, on Sunday said the party will win the September 22 governorship election in Osun state.

He said this in reaction to the emergence of Senator Ademola Adeleke (Osun West) as the party’s flag bearer for the election.

Babatope, an ex-minister of Transportation, told NAN that the people of Osun were fed up with the All Progressives Congress (APC)–led administration under Governor Rauf Aregbesola in the state and were earnestly yearning for PDP.

Babatope said: “Our great party will win the governorship election in Osun on Sept 22. I am confident.

“I am optimistic of the PDP’s victory, because our people are fed up and tired of APC-led government.

“People are tired of APC and are yearning for our party. With the renewed belief of our people in us, I have no doubt that PDP will win,” he said.

The former minister, however, urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure credible conduct of the election for the will of the people to prevail.

When asked if the exit of Omisore would not affect the fortunes of the party at the polls, the PDP chieftain answered in the negative.

He said though Omisore was a prominent member of the party before his defection, people would still vote for the PDP.

On the July 14 governorship election in Ekiti state, Babatope said that he was still surprised by the outcome as announced by INEC.

“I am surprised at the outcome. I know Ekiti people very well, I know they love PDP because they appreciate our party.

“Honestly, I am surprised. I am bewildered,” Babatope said
