“We still have a lot of work to do, we still have Senatorial election, House of Representatives election, House of Assembly election ahead of us in 2023. That is why we must be focused as work harder for these election. Opomulero Group is the number one PDP support group. This is not for Jegede alone, it is for all of us and together we shall succeed.”
