The Chairman of the Sheriff-led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos, Segun Adewale, has expressed confidence that the party will do well in July 22 council poll.
Although Adewale acknowledged that internal problems within the party had caused some setbacks, he said the party would rise above its challenges for a strong showing.
“The PDP is a strong party in the state. Agreed there are some problems here and there caused by some people for their personal interests, but the party will overcome all that and do well at the poll,” he said.
Adewale said he had made overtures to the faction led by Moshood Salvador on the need to have a united party but that his efforts were not appreciated.
He said the disagreement would not deter his faction from preparing well for the poll even as he said the door of peace was still open to the Salvador camp.
