A former deputy governor in Lagos State, Senator Kofoworola Bucknor- Akerele, has said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is set to lead Lagosians to replicate the Kwara State originated ‘O to Gee’ movement in the politics of the state in 2023. “O to Gee” which literally translates to “Enough is enough’’, came about like a wildfire campaign slogan effectively used to end decades of political hegemony of a self-imposed dynasty in Kwara State in 2019.
Speaking over the weekend at a reception held in honour of the just concluded PDP National Convention and the return of the State Chapter to the National Working Committee through the emergence of Mr. Koshoedo Setonji, as Deputy National Secretary, the former Deputy Governor said the grip of the All Progressives Congress in Lagos will be loosed in 2023.
Bucknor-Akerele, who served as Deputy Governor in the state under APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, said it is time for members to close ranks and wrestle power from the ruling party.
She said: “Some people have been saying that Chief Bode George is responsible for the crisis rocking the Lagos PDP, we all know it is not true. I’m optimistic and praying that God will flush out the bad eggs from our party.
“We have all seen what is going on in Lagos, for me, I think it is time we replicate the “O to Gee” movement in Lagos so that we can rescue Lagos from the APC in 2023. “This is why I am urging every party member to return to your respective wards and commence registration of new members so that we can be formidable and united ahead of the 2023 general elections.”
