Former Ekiti State  Governor Segun Oni and a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has state that no government is undefeatable.

Segun Oni stated this on Monday while declaring his intention to re-contest the governorship post in Ekiti 2022 poll.

Oni, a former Deputy National Chairman (South) of APC before defecting to the PDP, stated this in Ado Ekiti while opening his campaign office christened: `PDP family edifice’, in preparation for the forthcoming poll in the state.

Oni, while expressing his interest in the number one seat in the state, said that the PDP would work with the masses.

He promised to work with former Governor Ayodele Fayose, Senator Biodun Olujimi and others, to reposition the party and make it formidable ahead of the poll to achieve the task of winning the election then.

“I have been in politics for long and I understand the importance of unity. Let all leaders play their roles. Politics is a team game. As for me, I am not going to engage in names calling,” Oni said.

The former governor said that he decided to name his campaign office `PDP family edifice’ to convey the sign that politics should not be perceived as acrimony, an enmity and something meant for character assassination.

“We want to tell Nigerians that there is a new formula in town, which is the formula of friendship, unity and oneness. I don’t believe in character assassination and exclusion; it is good for all of us to be together.

“Except the parameters change, I am interested in the governorship. Though, only God knows tomorrow; but, as of now, yes, I am contesting and we are projecting that God will sanction it.”

He said that Ekiti PDP was not afraid of the power of incumbency.

“At a time in history, Nigeria was being controlled by the PDP. But, Nigerians changed their minds and voted for APC in 2015.

“If you look at the mood in town now, the people have changed their minds going by what they are saying in town.

“People are not inclined to have APC after the next expiry date in 2022 in Ekiti, that is, after Governor Fayemi.

“No government is undefeatable. President Donald Trump wanted to conquer America. He introduced Mafian styles, thinking that he could not be defeated. Where is he today? He is in Florida in retirement. That is the power of the people.

“Politicians should be able to subject themselves to the will of the people, so that we won’t destroy the system.’’
