State will be ready for use next week, the State Coordinator, Rt. Hon.

Femi Akinyemi has said.
Akinyemi, who was speaking during a meeting held with members of the

organisation's Central Working Committee (CWC) and Local Government

Coordinators in Ado-Ekiti yesterday said the State Governor, Engr.

Segun Oni rendered tremendous assistance in getting a benefitting

situation office for the organisation.
“Today, I am happy to inform you all that our campaign office, which

is situated next to the PDP secretariat in Ado-Ekiti will be ready for

use next week. It is going to be opened with pump and pageantry.

“A lot of fund has been expended in making the building befitting and

we must thank Governor Segun Oni for his personal support and

commitment to the Goodluck/Sambo Presidential ambition.

“Let me also tell you all that Ekiti State is being looked up to by

other States in the Southwest as a State with 100 percent support for

the president and we must not disappoint.
“We must all work assiduously for the emergence of the Goodluck

Jonathan/Sambo candidature in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)

primaries as well as their eventual election as the President and Vice

president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the next general

election,” he said.
While expressing his happiness that the South-west has come together

again to form a relationship that will be unbroken because of the

Goodluck/Sambo presidential aspiration, ,Akinyemi said leaders of the

PDP in the southwest have an agenda for the south-west and would work

toward not losing any state during the 2011 general elections.

Giving assurance that the Yoruba nation would not be short-changed by

the Goodluck/Sambo Presidency, Akinyemi said; “For the articulation of

the south-west interests, a committee to embark on an expedition has

been set up with Otunba Solomon Oladunni as Chairman of that and Mrs.

Ayoka Lawani as the Secretary.
“The committee, which has Chief Kunle Ogunlade (Ekiti), Hon. Mike

Akinfenwa (Oyo), Dr. (Mrs.) Ayo Badejo (Osun), Chief Kolapo Ogunjobi

(Ogun) and Senator Kofo Bucknor-Akerele (Lagos) as members, has been

saddled with the responsibility of fashioning out a comprehensive

agenda for the southwest.”
