He said: “I am psychologically prepared for the assignment ahead. I have consulted and campaigned widely among party faithful across the length and breadth of Nigeria. I have received overwhelming support. I am convinced that delegates will make a right choice in me”.

Answering questions from newsmen after consultations with various stake holders and delegates to the PDP Convention, Ologbondiyan said, “I believe my opponents have given up”.
He reiterated that “my experience as a newspaper Editor and image manager to the former President of the Senate, Senator David Mark from 2007 to 2015 will put me in a better stead ahead of my opponents in the management of the party affairs”.

Ologbondiyan stated that what the Party needs at the moment is an experienced technocrat like himself and not a beginner or a neophyte to project and promote the image of the PDP forthwith.

According to Ologbondiyan, “this is the time to tell our story and change the narrative that will once again endear the party to the people of Nigeria. I am aware of the challenges ahead and I am prepared never to fail”.
