It was like homecoming for Senator Olasunkanmi Akinlabi Rasheed (SOAR) when he visited Olaoluwa, Iwo and Ayedire federal constituency yesterday.
The warm and relaxed reception showed that SOAR had berthed at a familiar turf and comments after comments showed he enjoys tremendous goodwill from the people.
The consultations with party leaders, Local Exco and ward executives were cordial with assurances that having paid his dues as a consistent and loyal party man, it is time to reap the fruits of his labour.
SOAR who presented his manifesto to the delegates said he is best-suited to be PDP’s flagbearer, giving grounds of educational qualification, political experience, capacity to deliver, exposure and networks of contacts as his key selling points.
He said he had consistently made sacrifices in the larger interest of the party and looked forward to receiving the votes of majority of the delegates on July 17.
Respondents acknowledged SOAR’s contributions to the party pledged their loyalty and prayed for his success.
