BREAKING: Why I Rejected PDP’s Appointment – Makinde

Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde declined the offer to chair the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) committee for ward congresses in Edo State.

According to him, a last-minute notification and prior state commitments left him unable to take up the important role.

Makinde, in a letter to the party’s National Working Committee (NWC), explained that he received the appointment notice on Friday, February 2nd, for a congress scheduled the very next day, February 3rd.

The tight timeline prevented him from thoroughly reviewing the actions of the party’s Directorate of Organisation before his appointment and clashed with his existing state engagements.

Expressing gratitude for the nomination, Makinde stated, “The late notification and my prior commitments make it impossible for me to accept the appointment.”

The National Organising Secretary of the PDP, Umar Bature, acknowledged Makinde’s reasons, highlighting the established grievance procedures for aggrieved aspirants.

Despite Governor Godwin Obaseki lamenting Makinde’s absence, he reassured that the congress’s validity remained intact. Interestingly, nine out of eleven PDP aspirants for the 2024 Edo State governorship election opted out of participating in the congress, adding another layer to the unfolding political scenario.
