Otunba Segun Adewale, a former chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, has said that the party’s disunity is to blame for its multiple election losses in the state.

This was said by Adewale, also known as Aeroland, during a Thursday news conference in Lagos.

The party’s repeated electoral defeats in the state, according to the former PDP chair, are due to party officials’ anti-party actions and misuse of election finances.

If these politicians do not alter their behavior, the PDP will have a hard time unseating the APC in the state, according to Adewale, the 2023 PDP candidate for the Lagos West Senatorial District.

No amount of incompetence on the part of the Lagos PDP’s leadership will help the party secure victory in the next state elections. During election seasons, this occurs annually.

“Once every four years, it occurs. Among the general elections of 2023, one had a larger turnout.

Less than half of the funds made available to the Lagos PDP to fund their 2023 election campaign actually made it to the state and party members.

“Some members of the party took the money and pocketed it, but the one I brought into the state to support the election went to the party’s ground troops,” the PDP chieftain claimed.

He claims that several high-ranking party officials were involved in anti-party activities and that the PDP Presidential Campaign Council included some dishonest individuals during the 2023 race.

According to Adewale, he possessed video evidence that demonstrated how several PDP executives, including members of the Alhaji Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Council, had collaborated with the governing APC during the previous election.

The lack of expenditure on election mobilization funds by Lagos PDP leaders in the recent 2023 general elections was something Adewale observed for the first time.

Last year, he was involved and he found it disgusting how a few officials of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) stole the money.
