He also called on fellow party members to come together as one formidable force to take over the mantle of leadership from the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) come 2022.
While expressing displeasure on the state of insecurity in the country, Ajijola said ”A functional and proactive Government should be able to secure the lives and property of citizens.
”Any government that fails in this area should be regarded as a complete failure because that is a fundamental responsibility of government“.

He appealed to members of PDP in Ekiti State to come together and speak well of the party ahead of next year’s governorship election.
