Press Release

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) wishes to condole with the family of late Evangelist Niyi Pirisola who was reportedly assassinated in cold blood in the wee hours of today at his residence in Ilutitun, Okitipupa local government area of Ondo State.

Late Evangelist Pirisola was a Caretaker Chairman of Okitipupa local government and the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in the local government until his death.

While the PDP expresses shock at this inhuman act, we hereby call on all security agencies to bring the perpetrators of this dastardly act to book.

This is necessary because of the sensitivity of the times that we are in Ondo State considering that the State is preparing for its governorship election come November 26, 2016.

The PDP cautions against anything that could heat up the polity and impede the transition process that is being prepared for in our dear Sunshine State.

Ondo State has been widely acclaimed as one of the most peaceful States in the country. We must not allow hoodlums to tamper with this track record or dent our image in any way.
