An aspirant for the Ijebu Central Federal Constituency, Ogun State in the 2019 House of Representatives election, Otunba Badejo Adewale Abayomi (OBAA) has said that the impressive performance of the Ogun State governor, Ibikunle Amosun will pave way for most aspirants including himself, seeking elective positions on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Otunba Badejo said the many unprecedented infrastructural projects of the Amosun-led APC administration in the state has engraved APC in the mind of the people of Ogun State as the party to follow and vote for in coming elections across all positions from the federal to local government.
“I can categorically say that since the return of democracy in Nigeria, Ogun State has never had the type of the incumbent governor. It is obvious that Governor Amosun has transformed the entire state with equitable project distribution across the three senatorial districts of our state. His development strides are unequalled in the state and he has groomed seasoned administrators that are ready to continue to develop the state where he will stop in May 2019 when he shall be completing his two terms administration”.
Otunba Badejo whose campaign slogan is “Hope of the less privilege ones” said he is ready to give adequate and beneficial representation to the people of Ijebu Central more than has been done by previous representatives of the constituency if given the opportunity.
“It is a pity that our people has not gotten enough dividends of democracy from past and present representatives. I am going to the House of Representatives to tap every available opportunity that belong to our constituency and give to our people accordingly.
“Though I have done a lot to empower people in the three local governments of Odogbolu, Ijebu Ode and Ijebu North East, I will continue as a federal lawmaker to deploy my resources to empower the aged persons, market women, widows and artisans with a view of making life easy and affordable for them”.
The aspirant going by his past antecedents of philanthropism, through the Otunba Asalu Foundation, he has the assurance of winning the APC ticket and coming victorious in the election because his activities and love cut across party lines.
“My confidence rest on what I am to my people and what I have done in the past. I have empowered over 100 hairdressers with driers, 100 barbers with barbing equipments, giving about 100 grinding machines to empower women, providing 20 motorcycles to youth for transportation business and giving scholarship to students at various level of education, provided security patrol van to the Odogbolu Security apparatus and an L300 bus to the Alaye – in – council traditional institution of Odogbolu. While politically, I renovated the APC party offices in the he three local governments under my constituency;to mention but a few.
