Director of Media and Publicity of the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has said the candidates of the party will win some seats in the Osun State House of Assembly.
Fani-Kayode said this in an interview with journalists in Ile Ife on Saturday after casting his vote at Unit 03, Ilare ward 10 in Ile Ife.
According to him, the All Progressives Congress will not sweep the poll the way it did during the 2011 general elections, saying people of the state had seen the effect of a legislature exclusively populated by lawmakers from one political party.
He said, “This election is significant to democracy. The beauty of democracy is in the legislature that is made up of members of both the ruling and opposition parties.
“PDP candidates will win some seats in the Osun State House of Assembly and this is obvious.”
Fani-Kayode lamented the low turnout of the electorate during the House of Assembly poll, adding that they ought not to have shunned the poll because the legislature was a very important aspect of any democracy.
He believed the PDP would soon bounce back to take its lost glory in the political landscape of the country.
The former Minister of Aviation said the loss suffered by the party during the presidential election on March 28 would not mark the end of the party.
“An end has not come to PDP in Nigeria. The party will restore its lost glory in due time and Nigerians will also
appreciate the party. This is not the end of the party; the party will bounce back,” he stated.
