A former governor of Ogun State, Olusegun Osoba, has advocated for an internal democracy within various political parties in Nigeria.
The former governor stressed that any political party which lacks internal democracy would lose out during the 2019 general elections.
He stated this on Wednesday while addressing some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at his house in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
Osoba also warned that any party that presents a candidate who is not acceptable to the people at the grassroots would suffer defeat.
He asked all governorship candidates in Ogun APC to take their campaign train to the hinterlands, stressing the need for people in government to align with their party faithful.
The former governor added that the party in the state has not zoned the governorship slot to any area as all interests would be opened to negotiation, including those that recently defected to the party.
