A former governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola has revealed his interest in the National Chairmanship position of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Oyinlola also stated that his aspiration would depend on two conditions, which will include if the position is zoned to the South West and his ability to muster the stakeholders of the party, DailyPost writes.
Speaking on a radio current affairs programme in Osogbo to mark the 30th anniversary of creation of Osun State on Wednesday, Oyinlola revealed that he is more prepared to serve in the office of PDP National Chairman because he has garnered a decade of cumulative experience in governance both as military administrator of Lagos State and third civilian governor of Osun State.
The chieftain and former National Secretary of the PDP described his achievements in government as no mean feat, while lashing out at those using his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2014 to attack him as cheap blackmailers.
According to him, his leaving the PDP was because the party drove him away by engineering his removal from office.
He said powerful forces within the party concocted a plan to oust him and pave the way for then President Goodluck Jonathan to run for a second term in 2015.
