Political Party

I recently returned to the PDP, the party that gave me the opportunity to become the Governor of Ekiti State in 2007, with my supporters across the 16 Local Government Areas of Ekiti State. Although the prevailing situation in the country had prevented a formal gathering, nevertheless, it was a homecoming of sorts for us. We are very happy to be welcomed back to the party with open arms and enthusiasm everywhere. As I settled to work myself through the political pyramid, starting from my ward, as all politics is local, I deem it very important to formally inform you that I have returned to your fold with an open mind and a willingness to join others in contributing my quota in building the party. I promise to make myself available for the service of the party.
