Otunba Segun Adewale, a former chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, has attributed the PDP’s recurrent election losses to a lack of unity within the party.

This was said by Adewale, also known as Aeroland, to reporters on Thursday in Lagos.

The former PDP chairman blamed party officials’ anti-party actions and poor handling of election finances for the party’s ongoing electoral misfortunes in the state.

Adewale, the PDP candidate for the Lagos West Senatorial District in 2023, said that the PDP would have trouble unseating the state’s incumbent APC unless these figures altered their behavior.

“How Lagos PDP leadership mismanage election funds each election year will not allow the party to win elections in the state. This happens every election year.

“It happens every four years. One of the 2023 general elections was higher.

“Out of all the money released to Lagos PDP to prosecute the 2023 election, less than 50 per cent got to the state and to the party foot soldiers.

“It was the one that I brought into the state to fund the election that the party’s foot soldiers got, others collected the money and pocketed it,” the PDP chieftain said.

He said that several influential party figures had participated in anti-party actions and that some PDP Presidential Campaign Council members had also cheated in the general elections in 2023.

Adewale claimed to have video proof showing that several PDP leaders—including a few Alhaji Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Council members—had affiliations with the APC, which was in power during the previous election.

Adewale added: “I saw for the first time how few Lagos PDP leaders spent election mobilization funds in the last 2023 general elections.

“I was involved last year and it was horrible the way the money got taken away by a few Presidential Campaign Council, PCC leaders,” he said
