We are electing our new leaders to work with the Imole government, and to support the people’s government. I urged you all to unite behind the new executives that will be elected today, let’s hold the banner of love high. Unity is very key, we need all of us to join hands together and move PDP from strength to strength.
Speaking after his emergence, Sunday Bisi while speaking said pledged to bring everybody on board to ensure that the party and the PDP administration succeed.
He extended hand of fellowship to other aspirants to work with him in a bid to reposition the party for greatness.

“As an aspirant for the post of the Chairmanship of Osun PDP, I must note and for record sake, stress that the alienation of so many party members, the court process, and the non-involvement of so many stakeholders leave so much to be desired.
“And, it is unfortunate that we have learned nothing from our history as a people and past concerns. By every standard, a fragmented political party cannot perform optimally. Such is also not good for the PDP government in Osun”, he said.
