A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Prince Adekunle Adebayo Ayoola on Wednesday, at Ijebu Ode Club, hosted the executives of Odogbolu local government led by its Chairman, Hon Ladejobi Shuaib Adebayo, rallying support for the success of the ruling party at all levels in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
Prince Adekunle Adebayo Ayoola, founder of Omooba Obaruwa Foundation from Odogbolu Ward 1 disclosed that, the essence of the gathering was to identify with the grassroots development of the present administration in the local government and to of course, unequivocally declare his support for the continued success of APC at the polls even beyond 2023.
The political scientist and strategist lauded Hon Ladejobi and his team for their commitment to make life a lot easier for the rural dwellers pledging that he was ready to join forces with them in the area of education and poverty alleviation to further support the good government of Gov Dapo Abiodun in the state.
Ayoola called for concerted efforts to ensure the return of Gov Dapo Abiodun come 2023 saying that “what is also uppermost in my mind is the success of the second term bid of our hardworking governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun.
“This is a case of one good term deserves another. I am also pledging my unshakeable support for the landslide victory for our party presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, likewise all our party flag bearers across the state. I therefore seek for the hands of fellowship and support of everyone to further make our party the party to beat of all times”.
He thereafter pledged to donate a thousand torchlights to the local government to further entrench the philosophy of “Atupa Iye” as fondly promoted by the LG boss, Hon Ladejobi Shuaib Adebayo.
Speaking at the event, the Chairman of the local government, Hon Ladejobi lauded Prince Adekunle Ayoola for being a young man with favourable disposition to adding value to his people back home despite staying outside the country.
The Chairman said he had heard of his interventions here and there across the local government and that he had been doing it with no air of pride but with all humility and sense of service to humanity.
He declared that his government won’t hesitate to forge alliance with corporate bodies and individuals who are always ready to add values to the efforts at expanding frontiers of development in the local government.
Hon Ladejobi thanked the Poland based political scientist and security expert for his decision to donate a thousand torchlights saying that the donation was quite significant as it is giving meaning to the decision of its government to be torchbearer, fighting to standstill the darkness of underdevelopment in the local government.
The Chairman equally commended Gov Dapo Abiodun for encouraging youth participation in the governance of the state saying that the current administration at the local government is populated by the youth and would therefore leave no stone unturned to justify this unusual youth inclusion in governance.
Earlier, the APC stalwart had met with some stakeholders and youth at the Obowu parish, a popular relaxation centre at Ijebu Ode urging them to support the second term bid of Gov Abiodun and work for the overall victory of APC in 2023.
Dayo Rufai, Publisher of the popular Gatewaytimes and IjebuNewsExtra who is also a long time friend of Ayoola, lauded the political scientist and security expert for his committment and drive for a more prosperous Nigeria, calling on politicians in the country to show more dedication in tackling challenges of poverty, joblessness, insecurity among others confronting the country.
Dignitaries at the event included Hon Olamide Fashola, the Secretary to the local government, Leader of the legislative arm, Hon Bello sikirulai Olatunde, Majority leader, Hon Hammed Yusuf Moboluwaduro, Hon Afolashade Oduntan, the Chief Whip, Hon Adesanya lsaac, Hon Odutuga Anthony, Hon Femi Taiwo as well as Hon Olukoya Ekitunde among others.
