Oyinlola’s Ex-aide Joins Race For PDP Chairmanship
An Executive Assistant to ex-Osun State Governor, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, Funmiso Babarinde has disclosed his intention to contest the chairmanship post of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.
Naija News reports that Babarinde declared his intention in a letter addressed to Osun PDP acting chairman, Dr. Adekunle Akindele, in Osogbo on Wednesday.
He declared himself eligible, having gathered experience in private and public service as a civil servant and a political office holder with deep knowledge of politics within and outside the state.
The letter read in parts, “My wealth of experience in private and public service as a civil servant and a political office holder, together with my understanding of the political terrain in and outside Osun state, especially as a foundation member of Osun PDP, attest to my eligibility and informed my strong belief that by the grace of God and the support of distinguished stakeholders and members of our great Party, I will make a difference and contribute reasonably to the overall growth of the PDP in Osun State and beyond.
“I acknowledge and commend your frantic efforts so far. We would not be where we are today if not for your transformational leadership which is also my view of leadership and style.
“In keeping with the stated view, my aspiration stemmed from my decades of commitment to the PDP project and my passion to support the current PDP administration – to be a nexus between the government, the party and the good people of Osun state.”
