Tambuwal said, “What happened in Osun State recently is a sign of what to come. The South-West is going to be delivered to the PDP come 2023.”
The National Chairman of the party, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, who was represented by Ambassador Umar Damagun, said PDP had nothing to fear in the coming polls while urging members to vote the PDP members.
Adeleke said Atiku was an integral part of the South-West region and that he would win by the grace of God in 2023.
