Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Deputy governorship candidate in Oyo state, Engineer Oluremi Olaniyan has explained that he opted to work with Engineer Seyi Makinde because he consider his program and agenda for Oyo state as the best that will enhance desired changes needed in the state.

Engineer Olaniyan who was officially unveiled last week Friday in Ibadan is one of the African Democratic Congress ADC gubernatorial aspirants in Oyo state who defected from the party to PDP.

In an interactive session with members of  Association of Online Media Practitioner in Nigeria in Ibadan, Olaniyan said the man has a good program for the state , he has sat down with me and we have harmonize our programs to give Oyo state the best.

He said further that ‘ Some of our leaders in the ADC called me to be Lanlehin’s deputy and promised to sign an agreement that I will be his successor as governor of the state but I declined because I am particular about today and changing the situation in the state for better.

While boasting that PDP will win the state in 2019 election, Olaniyan disclosed that most of the aggrieved members in ADC are already in PDP and express optimism that more people are still coming from other party.

He maintained that Oyo state people are tired of the APC. “People are tired of suffering and hardship inflicted on them by the APC government and they will vote them out because they will not support continuity of the government with no human faces” he said .

Speaking on how they will run the government, the Igboho born retired civil servant said “The PDP government of Engineer Makinde will be far different from that PDP government of  Alao Akala and Senator Rashidi Ladoja, Makinde’s own will transform the state better.

“We are going to use the existing facts and figure to project into the future, we are going to think outside the box, if we are doing it the same way it is being done, we will get the same result but  we are going to work on the existing data,  for instance  Oyo state  is a pace setter state, in education we are now at number 26, in WAEC,  our government will look into that and map out plans to address the causes of the failure.”
