Abiodun flags off APC campaign for local council polls
Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, yesterday, flagged off the campaign for the local council election in Imeko-Afon and Yewa North local councils, with a promise to reconstruct the deplorable roads, including Abeokuta-Olorunda-Imeko Road.
Abiodun, who was accompanied on the campaign train by members of his cabinet and chieftains of the All Progressives Congress (APC), also presented the party’s flag to the chairmanship candidates in the two local councils.
While Akinrogun Yaya Fadipe was given the flag in Imeko-Afon, Gabriel Ogunyomi was given that of Yewa North.
The governor, while addressing the people of both local councils, said his administration had executed 52 projects in Imeko Afon and 76 projects in Yewa North in the past two years.
The chief among the projects, according to the governor, is the construction of Oke Ola Road in Imeko, saying the reconstruction of the Rounder-Olorunda-Imeko Road will ease the hardship being experienced by travellers on the road.
He assured the people that the road would be nearing completion the next time he would be visiting the council.
“This government belongs to you, continue to support us in prayers. On my way from Abeokuta, en-route Lafenwa to Rounder and Olorunda, until I got here, I saw how deplorable the road is, I feel your pains.
“I want to promise you today that before I come here next, this road would almost have been completed,” he stated.
Abiodun, who affirmed the supremacy of the party in the council, however, urged the people of the area to come out in large numbers to show their supremacy in the forthcoming council elections by ensuring victory for the party’s chairmanship and councillorship candidates.
“We have seen that our party, the All Progressives Congress is the only party here. We could have decided against coming here for this event because we know Imeko-Afon belongs to us, but our coming here has given us the opportunity to see the state of the road here.
“On July 24, two weeks and two days from now, I want you to go out enmasse and vote. Even though we know that Imeko-Afon and Yewa belong to us, I want you to come out to vote and let them know through your votes that they truly belong to us. Let us all come out and vote in Yahya Fadipe and Gabriel,” the governor stated.
Earlier, a chieftain of the APC in the state, Gboyega Nasir Isiaka, appreciated the administration of Governor Abiodun for his immense work in the state, urging the people to troop out and elect the candidates of the party at the forthcoming council elections.
Also in their remarks, the chairmanship candidates of the party thanked the governor and the party for the opportunity given to them to serve his people, promising that they would not disappoint the trust placed in him.
