Senator Biodun Olujimi (Ekiti South), on Monday, said the country needed to be rescued from the ‘evil All Progressives Congress, APC administration,’ which is why Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, must work hard in unity.

Senator Olujimi said this while playing host to the National Vice Chairman of PDP, South-West, Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja, and party leaders.

Ambassador Arapaja had led the working committee of the party in the zone on a reconciliation, harmonisation and cementing of unity visit to Senator Biodun Olujimi (Ekiti South Senatorial district) on Monday.

The courtesy call on Senator Abiodun Olujimi at her Lagos residence, as a recognised leader of PDP in the zone, was part of the ongoing visitations to the leaders across the zone by the executive.
