42 Yewa monarchs, leaders of thought endorse Abiodun for second term
Say Ogun West sees tremendous devt under gov’s watch
Traditional rulers and leaders of thoughts in Yewaland, Ogun State, have declared their readiness to support the re-election bid of Governor Dapo Abiodun, saying that his tenure has brought tremendous development to Yewaland and Ogun West Senatorial District.
Olu of Ilaro and Paramount Ruler of Yewaland, Oba Kehinde Olugbenle, who spoke on behalf of the 42 monarchs at the Secretariat of Yewa Traditional Council in Ilaro, said all the royal fathers unanimously opted for Abiodun after they had pleaded with all their sons vying for the number one position to step down their ambition.
The monarch, while berating the decision of a governorship candidate from the axis to reject the invitation of the Council on the need to step down his ambition for the number one job, said that his refusal was total embarrassment to the Council
He, however, said that the royal fathers were not perturbed by the candidate’s rude behaviour, rather, they are solidly behind Abiodun, who he described as “a man of his words.”
Oba Olugbenle said that the royal fathers would join their voices with that of the state government to request for funds spent to repair Ilaro-Owode Road.
Also, the Onimeko of Imeko, Oba Benjamin Olanite, said the people of the town were solidly behind the governor and would ensure his victory at the polls.
Similarly, the Olu of Imasayi, Oba Luqmon Kuoye, lauded the governor for the yellow roof initiative that led to rehabilitation of many public schools and health centres in the state.
Abiodun thanked the traditional rulers for their support and prayers, and pledged to accelerate development in Yewaland. He promised to work hard towards the socio-economic development of the state.
