Hon Kehinde Ayodeji Bello fondly called Kenny Bello, a business merchant from Ijebu-Imusin and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday, declared his interest to contest for the seat of Ijebu North, Ijebu East and Ogun Waterside federal constituency at the House of Representatives come 2023.
The event which was held at Itamarun Ijebu Imusin witnessed the presence of notable leaders of PDP from the three local governments of Ijebu North, Ijebu East and Ijebu Waterside.
The Director of mobilisation to Hon Ladi Adebutu, Hon. Lukman Ajomale in his key note address declared that everyone has the right to contest for any office as long as it is for service of the people.
Hon Ajomale said “this is Ijebu East, we shouldn’t be deliberating on zoning this time, what is important is the capacity of this aspirant, some of our elders have nominated delegates to witness today’s event and I am highly impressed with the turn-out of our people here.
“Ogun PDP has gathered over 30,000 new members while some members are still joining us; people are very interested in the PDP of today, I am appealing to our aspirants to move their campaign trains with their leaders in their respective local government areas of the state.
“I want to appeal to our members for maximum cooperation by bringing in new members into our fold, I pray for victory within our party, Nigerians are suffering, it’s time for our party to come back to power and be in charge from federal to local government. PDP is the only party that can wipe away the tears from the faces of Nigerians”, he said.
In the same vein, Mrs Omisande in her message appealed to the members to extend their tentacles across the three local government areas of the state, urging them to go all out and get registered for their voter’s card as that is the only instrument they could use to bring back PDP to power in 2023.
Speaking at the event, Hon Kenny Bello as he is popularly called declared that he was very hopeful that Ijebu East Local Government will be producing the next federal lawmaker representing the federal constituency of Ijebu North/Ijebu East/Ogun Waterside come 2023 at House of Representatives, Abuja.
Kenny Bello, who said his 2023 House of Representatives aspiration would undoubtedly be a breath of fresh air disclosed that “In Ijebu-East, we have been aspiring for this position since years back and I am convinced that this is the time that God has ordained.
“I therefore want to appeal to our leaders within the party, our dear members and supporters too, that we must join hands to make this happen. This time around, we shouldn’t leave the slot of Ijebu-East for another region, we have waited enough”.
Kanny Bello added that his aspiration would bring about a lot of turning around in terms of unimaginable development and other programmes that would make life much more comfortable for residents of the federal constituency.
The business tycoon said “I really don’t want to exchange issues with anyone but what I know and which all of you can also bear me witness is that I will not let you down if given the chance, it’s our time to succeed together, Ijebu East is my priority, let’s join hands together to achieve this divine assignment”.
