Abuja (Sundiata Post) – Federal representing Ekiti South Senatorial District at the 9th Senate, Senator Biodun Olujimi, has reacted to the gale of defections affecting the Peoples Democratic Party, saying that members who defected to other parties will fizzle into oblivion if they don’t return to the party.

Olujimi who was the Minority Leader of the 8th Senate, stated that the defection is expected because that is what you see when election year approaches because people will one to move based on personal calculations.

She disclosed this on Thursday while fielding questions with Members of National Assembly New Media in her office in Abuja.

According to the lawmaker, “Well, you know this is election and election times are always like this. People who believe that their interest cannot be served here will want to move. But let me assure you, they will all come back, if they don’t come back, they will fizzle into oblivion. The truth is, the people on the other side also have enough people to take charge there. So whatever is happening is happening because where people believe they have upper hand they go and wield it there and it doesn’t work that way.

On the forthcoming convention, Senator Olujimi, who chairs the protocol subcommittee of the convention, assured that, going by the antecedents of various organs and stakeholders of the party, the exercise would help reposition the party ahead of 2023 general elections.

“We are working so hard to reposition our ahead of 2023 elections. And of course, there are other elections coming up before 2023. We a strong party to be able to weigh all the elections that are staring us at the face, and I know that the Governor’s Forum, the Board of Trustees (BoT) and the National Executive Committee (NEC), have been up and doing” .

Also speaking on the unending in- crises rocking PDP in her state, the former deputy Governor of Ekiti said, hopefully, the national convention would address all issues.

She said, “It has been so tough for us to do. But I know that with the Convention, something has to be done. The NEC has effectively ceded its powers to the Convention Committee and I know that the Convention Committee, in having to put together all the elections and the congresses coming up in the various states, would have to attend to the problems of Ekiti, Osun and other states that have pending issues, and I believe that is where the resolution will come from”.
