FOLLOWING its victory in the Ikorodu II State Constituency bye-election held on Thursday, Lagos State chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Mr. Setonji Koshedo has spoke of the party’s readiness to win the 2011 gubernatorial election in the state.
Mr Koshedo tfold newsmen in Lagos that the outcome of the bye-election was an indication that the PDP would win future elections in Lagos in a free and fair contest.
He described the party’s victory in an ACN controlled area of Ikorodu as a sign of better things to come for the party saying “the result of the election has shown that in a free and fair election, PDP will always win. The point is that ACN has never won the state honestly.”
“We have always believed in the PDP that the past election has been fraudulent. In most of the election we have had since the beginning of democracy in Nigeria about t12 years, if Lagos state has been having free and fair election, PDP would have been on top. But the result of this election has shown that if free and fair election is held in Lagos state, PDP will always come top, which mean that the can, the ruling party in Lagos state has not always been winning elections naturally.”
