Ibarapa Central/ North PDP Stakeholders Unite For 2023 Elections, Resolve To Work For All Party Candidates
They say all politics is local and its success is dependent on the strategic planning and hard work of like minds coming together to forge a formidable alliance. Yesterday the 31st of October, 2022, the Ibarapa Central/North Federal constituency leaders and critical stakeholders of the ruling political party (Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, converged in Igboora, Ibarapa cenyral L.G.A.
The meeting, which was convened by the party and held at the residence of Dr. Adebayo Adepoju, the PDP candidate for the House of Representatives, was well attended by party stalwarts in the constituency. During the meeting, several party favorable resolutions were reached. The stakeholders resolved to shelve all grievances and work for all party candidates.
The people of the constituency expressed gratitude to the executive governor of the state, Engr. Seyi Makinde for his resolve to concentrate on the infrastructural needs of the Ibarapa people and his decision to flag off his second term gubernatorial campaign in Igboora.
