Former Osun State governor, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, has admonished the people to use their votes at the September 22 governorship election to rescue the state from what he described as total collapse.

He said the advice had become imperative in view of the precarious situation the state has found itself.

Oyinlola spoke at Inisa, Odo-Otin Local Government area during the meeting of the state Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) led by its Chairman, Revd Michael Okodua.

“The situation in our dear state, Osun, today, calls for serious concern. It is near total collapse. Our people can rescue this situation with their votes at the coming governorship election scheduled for September 22,” he said.

Oyinlola, who is a national leader of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), called on the electorate in the state to vote massively for the party and its candidate, Alhaji Fatai Akinbade and his deputy, Justice Olamide Oloyede (rtd).

Through them, the former governor promised, Osun would be turned around for the common good of the people through enduring agricultural and industrial programmes that would lead to employment generation and sustainable development.

Earlier, Akinbade said with his experience and background, it would not be difficult for him to fix the problems confronting the people.

The ADC candidate, who expressed optimism that he would win the election, urged stakeholders not to see the contest as a do-or-die affair.
