Monarchs in Yewaland have declared their support for Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun’s second term bid in 2023. The Olu of Ilaro and paramount Ruler of Yewaland, Oba Kehinde Olugbenle, who stated this on behalf of the council during the 70th birthday ceremony of a renowned businessman, Alhaji Akeem Adigun, in Lagos, at the weekend, said the monarchs in Ogun West are united and solidly behind the emergence of the governor for second term in 2023.
Oba Olugbenle noted that the “case is closed” with regards to the forthcoming general elections in the state, adding that “all those who are yet to come to terms with the reality will soon do so.”
The monarch, who also commended the humble nature and the love of the governor for the people of Yewaland, assured him of the total support of all the sons and daughters of Yewaland.
Earlier in his remarks, Abiodun described the celebrant as an embodiment of humility, who he said, is very focused, calm and never stops to help those in need.
Abiodun, while appreciating the celebrant for his support towards the emergence of his administration in 2019, noted that the celebrant is still solidly behind his administration.
The Yewa monarch, who acknowledged the decision of the governor to name the celebrant as a member of the governing-board of the Ogun State Institute of Technology, Igbesa, expressed confidence that the celebrant and others from Yewaland would add more value to the institutions they were appointed into.
The Olu of Ilaro said: “At the Yewa Traditional Council, we don’t have pending fight any longer over any governorship candidate, member of the House of Representatives or the Senate. The case is closed as far as we are concerned.
“We thank you for the love you have for us in Ogun West. I want to assure you that our sons and daughters are solidly behind you, don’t be afraid.
“Your Excellency, be calm as all those who are yet to understand and face the reality will soon understand. Some of us totally understand and we would give you that resounding victory through our votes.”
