A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State, Dr. Akin Ogunbiyi on Thursday explained that inexperience led to his eventual loss of PDP governorship ticket in 2018 and affirmed that, he would re-contest for the same position in the next dispensation to make the state more virile.
Ogunbiyi who made this known at a programme organised by a PDP group known as ‘Sunbreakers’, in Osogbo, assured that, his newly acquired political experiences, will now assist him to steer the ship of the state to a promise land.
According to him, “I actually won the ticket of the Osun gubernatorial race in 2018 but my political inexperience made me loose it.”
“Today, I assure the entire people of Osun state that I will contest in 2022 under the platform of PDP. 2018 has come and gone. It is a fool that will fall and be discouraged. If I had known this much in 2018, I would not have lost. I won glaringly but now the oppressor is the one being oppressed.”
The party chieftain who argued that, “We have had a lot of problems in Osun in the last 12years that APC has been in government both in Osun and at the federal level, pointed out that, the APC doesn’t understand governance and that is why, there is crisis everywhere.”
“Also, our infrastructures and institutions had been bastardized because of greed and covetousness and the state that should be able to feed the entire nation is no longer thriving in the agricultural sector.
Ogunbiyi further stated that, greed and mismanagement of the ruling All Progressives Congress caused the current crisis in Osun state and Nigeria in general.
“There is crisis in Osun in particular, you all know the debt profile of the state. What can we even pointout that they did specifically with all the loans. With my training, there is nothing bad in borrowing, but when you borrow, you must be able to use the proceed of whatever you do to pay back the loan,” he submitted.
