Otunba Segun Ogunwuyi’s accomplishments as Chief of Staff are evident and should be acknowledged. Leaders need to realize that success in governance is not exclusive to any one individual or faction. Instead of fostering resentment, Ogbomoso PDP leaders should commend Ogunwuyi’s achievements and use them as inspiration to improve their own contributions to the region’s development.

Ogbomoso is a unique region with its own set of challenges and opportunities, and its PDP leaders must take ownership and responsibility for addressing these issues effectively. Unity and collaboration within the party are essential for crafting policies that resonate with the people and drive the region forward.

To build a strong and formidable PDP in Ogbomoso, unity must be at the forefront of the party’s agenda.
