Ticket Not Do-or-die Affair – Arebuwa


A governorship aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic (PDP) in Ondo State, Mr. Bosun Arebuwa has urged co-aspirants not to see the quest to emerge the party's candidate as a do-or-die affair.

Arebuwa, who spoke to journalists shortly after obtaining his expression of interest form at the PDP secretariat in , said defeating the ruling () in the state should be the concern of all contestants and stakeholders in the state.  

He said Ondo State under the APC administration is currently in darkness and he is ready to transform the state from darkness to light.

His words, “Ondo State is in thick darkness, we want to bring light. We shall bring total transformation just like the theme of our programme which is “Imole de, Okunkun Parada” (Light has come, darkness must disappear).

“What our own is going to do is to render light, and when the light comes, all the good things Ondo people have been missing, they will begin to enjoy it. 

“Darkness won't allow you to see anything good, but when light comes, you will begin to see the beautiful things, darkness disappears. Our people will begin to enjoy the good things of life, which is what democracy is all about. So, that's what we are going to do”, he said.

The chartered accountants cum politician said obtaining forms by aspirants does not negate negotiations for emergence of a possible consensus candidate.

“Consensus is still ongoing. All we are saying is that we will all unite to flush out the darkness,” he said.

The aspirant harped on unity among party members in Ondo State, while stressing that past experiences have shown that PDP lost elections to APC because of internal disputes and acrimony.

He said “In PDP, we have learnt our lessons and we are united, I can assure you that we are united. And it's only a fool that will be passing through what we are passing through, and not be united against their enemies.” 

According to him, as a core party , he will be ready to accept the of a credibly conducted primary election by PDP leadership and will be more ready to support whoever picks the party's ticket.

According to him, “I've always been in support of any candidate in the PDP. Getting the ticket or not getting it does not stop me from supporting.  It's not a do or die affair. I am not desperate, but I am ready to serve our people, that's my own. 

“So, our goal is to win and restore Ondo State to PDP. It is  not about me. That's why you don't see my posters everywhere, it's about our people and our party.” 

He promised to run a youth oriented government if he wins the governorship election by empowering the teeming youthful population while not neglecting  the and other sectors of the society.

He said, “Youth are in the forefront of our government. Presently, even with my own private capacity, I've been able to do the little by my own resources. All I have been doing is for the youth, bringing them up to speed to what youth are, all over the

“By helping to train them in technology development, they will be  on the same page with their counterpart all over the world. That's what I am doing  right now within my own private capacity, and that's one of the things that is making me to go for this governorship because our youth capacity are grossly underutilized. So,  that we can bring them up and help them to fulfill their dreams.

“And to the women, we are going to empower the women and the women are our mothers. When we make them to be good, we will be good.”
