Sylva, who made the declaration during a condolence visit to the family of late Col. Sam Inokoba, the immediate past state chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP in the state said, the PDP-led administration in the state is in its twilight, ready to bow out.

The former PDP chairman had last month defected to the APC and indicated interest in obtaining the party’s governorship ticket. Inokoba had also defected to the APC.

Sylva was represented by the state party chairman, Chief Tiwei Orunimighe, who led other members of the state executives to the residence of the late party chieftain. He described the late Inokoba as a man who left behind a glowing political legacy.

“He left a comfort zone as the chairman of a ruling party in the state, to join APC because he didn’t like what was going on in the PDP, and that goes to show the character of such a person, he wasn’t satisfied with their activities, that was why he joined us and had to even bought form to contest the governorship seat because he wanted the desire change for the state,” he said.

He expressed the resolve of the party to participate in the burial formalities and assured the members of his family that APC will continue to stand by them.

Before his death, Inokoba was said to be planning to pick up the governorship no$ination form of the APC.

He noted that even if the promises are not 100% fulfilled but the citizens see signs of commitment and progress, other parties should forget about displacing APC in 2023.

The former Lagos State Governor added that opposition parties are not doing better than the APC, hence should not expect Nigerians to vote for them come 2023.

He said: “Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics,” the former Lagos governor said.

“If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred percent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish what you started.”
