Olagunsoye Oyinlola, a former governor of Osun state, has said that the opposition party would defeat the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Guardian reports that he said unity is the key weapon the PDP can deploy to take over the presidency from the ruling APC in the 2023 election.
Oyinlola said the PDP must be united to take over power following poor governance and failure of the APC to deliver on its promises.

Oyinlola, who spoke on Thursday, February 18, at the southwest PDP reconciliation committee meeting with Lagos state stakeholders, said he did not see the reason PDP should not be united.
The former governor promised that the committee was going to consult with the five leaders of the party as requested by some members.
Remi Akitoye, a member of Board of Trustees of the PDP, lamented that a former governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, had been coming to Lagos state chapter to cause confusion.
He stressed that external influence was the major cause of the Lagos PDP problem, adding that God would give Oyinlola the wisdom to resolve the issue and reconcile the executives.
Also, a former deputy national chairman of PDP, Chief Olabode George, urged critical stakeholders in and outside Nigeria, to impress it on President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling APC to restructure the country.

Meanwhile, Bioreports had previously reported that a former governor, Oyinlola, disclosed why ex-Nigerian leader Olusegun Obasanjo supported current President Muhammadu Buhari over then-incumbent in 2015, Goodluck Jonathan.
It was reported that Oyinlola said Obasanjo made this move because he had fallen out totally with the Jonathan administration.
Oyinlola, a former military administrator of Lagos state, however, noted that Obasanjo did not welcome President Buhari with open arms either.
