Over the months heavy and light weight politicians reported dumped the party for the All Progressives Congress (APC). Though in order to play down the significant impact of the political decampist. Thus, their credibility and capacity in PDP was queried by some members who were not pleased with the development by describing some of them as inconsequential. But the home truth the thumbs and votes of these stakeholders as the same consequential effect like that of mentally derailed persons because insane persons votes does not smell and one vote can make or mar one’s ambition lets pretend under nano seconds they lacks hundreds of followers.
Several stories has been written about the development as they unfold in the major opposition party, PDP which sufficient enough to make the various gladiators to at least for once reason together as result of 5 times consecutive failures to restructure and play their role as a responsive opposition by given constructive criticism, kudos and knocks as and when due to the ruling party rather than wait for every four four years general elections only as some stakeholders described them and unrefuted as we reports.
Failure to take up their responsibility as a party confers both the ruling and opposition titles on some APC supporters or sympathisers. Who took it upon themselves to ask local, and state authority salient questions because politics bottom up (all politics is local) rather than corrupt top down approach some stakeholders used in hijacking power.
Our community newspaper placed premium on local developments and to promotes improved engagements among the stakeholders in different demographic and psychographic. However, since the several epistle posted as call for action and serial failures of the party since 1999 as become historic and tradition so loved by the party stakeholder coupled with the subsisting excos and the some gladiators disposition to a supposed reconciliation meetings as gathered indicates there is still fire on the mountain and nobody seems prepared to provide detergents and water to extinguish it.

Politics is about conflicts and resolutions. Some learnt were championing conciliation and reconciliation course while others are allegedly sabotaging the jaw jaw to sustain the status . All these pointedly indicates as we writes that the party is not ready to play its opposition role against the ruling party nor ready for any emergency election should one declared for tomorrow’s.
Above All, PDP still remains the major opposition since no unity among the members of the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) to displace the PDP as observed. Accord Party thought would have been the alternative to PDP in Kosofe after their 2017 performance In Ikosi Isheri Poll. That nearly produced council Chairman but was able to produce a councilor but PDP produced none unlike 2012. However, the party, AP has since lowered its flags nor push further for the last general elections.
The status of PDP despite it worst performance in the state in 2019 informed the reason we openly asked through our handles that” What Can Kosofe PDP do to get the party working again”.
When prominent thousands of PDP members following Kosofe Post online newspaper seems busy wearing the think caps before commenting . The ruling members took the advantage and implored them to move to the next level.
The leading pack was the senior Special Assistant on civil engagement to the Agboyi Ketu LCDA, Hon. Ilelaboye Ademola Abideen, asked that “Do we have viable opposition in Lagos. If You can’t beat them, you join them “Akeso Funke , Bima Abdulahi joined him to ask PDP to Join APC.
Lanre Fatunla said” There is no PDP in kosofe again,cos the big wig has defeated to APC.
Others said Gbenga Osobu Collapse the few breathing remnants into APC. Akomolafe Shina Relocate to the south east and Obagun Taiwo Olawunmi To join the moving train, APC. and Sulaimon Ademola Kamaldeen ,Aare Oromidayo Balogun , Balogun Kazzem, Adeyemo Akeem ,Hon. Adeleke Adewusi, Sina Akomolafe respectively are on the same page with their APC counterparts.
While Lagos State Chapter, Buhari Youth Organisation , Coordinator , Comrade Abdulwajeed Omotayo Adenuga disagreed with Ilelaboye’s and others on the call on PDP members to join the next level. in acknowledgment of the important role of a strong ruling and strong opposition party.
I strongly disagree with you sir. We need a very strong opposition to do better as a party and as a country. They should go revive their dead party. Abdulwaheed Said.
Also responding the 2019 candidate of the Young Progressive Party (YPP) for Lagos state House of Assembly for Kosofe Constituency 1, Barrister Amoussa Shakoor Olawale noted that “Opposition politics is only going to thrive in Nigeria whose voting class are ready to keep their minds open. Nevertheless we should never relent in trying to provide a bright alternative for our nation. God help us all.
The issue was centered on opposition which both internal politics, core responsibility and media relations are lagging behind. The discussions later attracted robust contributions from some of their prominent and best hands who dont need approval to speak in public fora on the way forward on how to get the party working again. Nevertheless, the ruling party members and liberal minds who leads the debates and contributed handsomely must be commended for being their Brothers Keepers towards deepen our political system.
Response of PDP members
Until those that are working for apc under Pdp in kosofe leaves.
Opomulero Olayiwola Sulyman
Those glamouring for collapse into APC are merely the enemy of NIGERIA. IS THE APC PERFECT OR GOD THAT IT FEELS IT DOESNT NEED TO BE PUT ON IT TOES? How many of them dare speak against the odd and evil in their party? The only platform they have is the opposition platform to speak. I know countless of APC Leaders who give information to the PDP because they could not speak within their party.
Lateef Ola Adegunwa
All the excos should be replaced with party loyalist that will move the party forward and not chameleons
Opomulero Olayiwola Sulyman
The PDP of today that i know of in kosofe is control by people with 100% greed, selfishness and political traders and business men and women.
The youth in the party are victim of loyalty to this traders and dealers and do not see beyond this dealers and traders negotiating common party excos for them
MY TAKE: For the party to have head way in kosofe, first it should forget winning any elective position in the next 4 years.
Secondly, it should expel all state leaders and LG leaders within it. None of them mean good for the party. They are only acting good. Thirdly the party should take the role of POLITICAL ACTIVISTS FOR NOW AND FORGET IT ROLE AS A POLITICAL PARTY.
LET THE MACHINERY OF THE PARTY BE OILED BY ACTIVIST AND NOT HUNGRY ACTIVIST. THEY SHOULD JOIN BRAINS AND IDEAS WITH NGO, PRESSURE GROUPS AND HUMAN RIGHT GROUPS. LET THEM FORGET THEIR IDENTITY AS A PARTY FOR NOW.
For me, pdp in kosofe of today is not a political party but a negotiating floor for political gladiators.
They should invest in humanism, consider CSR from their pocket and get the services of a good image maker ( media team) to help in doing damage control and project their activism and human right stand in the total wellness of kosofe and nigeria as a whole.

Thank you opomulero, the trader and dealer should leave the party first before any reconciliation.
Waheed Aderemi Adegoke
Let the seat of the affairs be occupied by the loyal and caring ones.
Dele Segun Aroyewun
Accessing PDP Kosofe lga in isolation will never give you a proper solution because the local government cannot do anything meaningful without a proper and responsive leadership at the state level. Sincerely, we don’t have a functional political partie…See More
In my opinion I think the issue of 65 – 35 % should be a thing of the past, and the party structure/ office should be given on merit to progressive members. More so, it’s must be funded by members. That’s when all will be seen as stakeholders and shun the habit of waiting every four years to embezzle election funds
Adenuga Babajide Alaba
Going by what I have seen, the Structure of the party in Kosofe is skewed against the progress of the party at large by the dealers.
The party should go back and put together a very strong, virile party structure that has a strong base from the ward to the LGA.
The party dealers should stop the use of their special machinery that are being packed together by them for their special purpose
Responding to Ilelaboye’s and comrade Abdulwaheed comments earlier Opomulero said ” There can never be progress in any human endeavour without a viable, meaningful and purposeful opposition.
Where there is no opposition, ANARCHY LOOMS. It is only the supreme being that need no opposition to do right.
Prince Ademola Alebiosu
PDP kosofe LGA and PDP Lagos state will surely get it right soon because we are trying to sort out the leaders from dealers.I am a full member of PDP come rain come sunshine.
Kosofe Post online newspaper can authoritatively say after the observations and experimenting the PDP members offline and online comments that PDP constituted authority or supporters have the option of adopting the proffer solutions by its members or allowed true reconciliation to work or maintain the status quo and awaits their results in the future elections.
