Edo State Deputy Governor Philip Shaibu said the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has the capacity to produce a successor to President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
Shaibu made the statement in Oyo on Saturday during the ongoing parish convention.
The chairman of the committee set up by PDP headquarters to conduct the exercise said that what the PDP needs to do is “strengthen the organization”.
“We can take over from the federal government. All the policies of the PDP states that are currently showing positive results will help make Nigeria great again.
The vice-governor noted that he and his team were in Oyo to “call the masses”.
“We are fulfilling this obligation to ensure that convention in all 351 wards of the state is peaceful and credible.”
Shaibu assured that even if some members were wronged, the party would try to resolve all issues.
“I have had discussions with some of the associate members and they have agreed to put their grievances aside and work for the common good.
“The majority of the population supports the process of peaceful reconciliation and the discussions which are still ongoing,” he added.
