The candidate for governor of the new Nigerian People’s Party in Ogun state, Olufemi Ajadi, has pledged to redefine governance in the state if elected in next year’s elections.
He made that promise on Saturday when he visited his Ilaro, according to a statement on Monday.
Oguntoyinbo, who was received by a huge crowd of residents, especially promised voters an improvement in their well-being if they were elected as the next governor.
He praised the massive turnout of Ogun people from the 20 local governments of the state that hosted him, adding that it was high time the people felt the real impact of democracy.
“Uncertainty; power outages; bad roads and unemployment are the first targets to be addressed before we take on one challenge after another,” he said.
He urged people to play their part by voting for the NNPP en masse in the upcoming elections.
The party’s state chairman, Oginni Sunday, also said that the incumbent governor, Dapo Abiodun, had failed to fulfill his party’s promises to citizens.
He added that Oguntoyinbo would keep his promises in line with his tradition of promise and doing. He said the hopeful NNPP governor had a tradition of humanitarianism and would not abandon the Ogun people.
“He has done several empowerment programs for the youth in Ogun state and also helped some poor students pay their tuition fees. We are confident that Ajadi will perform,” he added.
Also speaking. Southwest Zonal Secretary and Ajadi Campaign Director, Tunde Oke, said the PDP abandoned the Ogun people first before the APC took over, stressing that it would be through the NNPP’s victory that voters would be able to meet the current challenges vanquish.
“If we want the positive change to be reflected in Ogun state, we should not hesitate to embrace the candidacy of Olufemi Ajadi,” he said.
Ajadi’s mother who attended the event, along with some other family members, acknowledged the presence of other citizens of Ogun State, especially the women.
The elder Oguntoyinbo Ojenike, the Iyalode of Ilaro, pleaded with all indigenous people and other voters in Ogun to help Ogun’s future by massively voting for his son in the 2023 general election.
She said that her son, from an early age, always had the welfare of other people in mind and would help improve the lives of the people of Ogun.
