Osun 2022: Oluwo, others back Oyetola’s reelection

Published

on

The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdul-Rasheed Akanbi, has said the performance of the Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, within three and a half years in office was enough to get him reelected.

Oba Akanbi spoke in his palace in Iwo when Governor Oyetola and his campaign team, who were in Iwo Federal Constituency for a reelection campaign, paid him a courtesy visit.

Oba Akanbi, who described Iwo as the home of progressive politics in Yorubaland, said the town had never been disappointed for being loyal to progressive government and called on his subjects to unite and ensure that Oyetola emerged victorious in the July 16 governorship poll.

He said, “Let’s work in unison to retain Oyetola and ensure the victory of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the next year’s general elections. As you can see, the results of the last governorship election was not too good.

 

“But I can assure you that now, it will be much better, particularly from Iwo land. We have 30 kings with 48 ruling houses with numerous chiefs. We can’t find it difficult to speak to them. I want to assure you that by the grace of God that enthroned us, you will emerge.”

Speaking in similar vein while receiving Oyetola and his team in their palace, Olowu of Kuta, Oba Adekunle Oyelude and Olu of Ile-Ogbo, Oba Abeeb Agbajelola, said the governor had worked for second term in view of his modest achievements in the last three and a half years.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Ismail Omipidan, on Thursday, said Oyetola, while addressing party supporters in the communities, visited and highlighted some of the achievements of his administration in the last three and a half years.

According to him, despite the pocket of challenges faced shortly after he came on board, he was still able to record many achievements.

He urged those who had not collected their Permanent Voter Cards to do so, as it remained the only power to vote for continuity of good governance.

Tinubu Peter Obi

The All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, has listed conditions his counterpart from the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, must meet before engaging in a debate with him.

Tinubu said he would engage Obi in a debate after he released his manifesto for Nigerians to scrutinize.

Speaking through the spokesman of his campaign team, Festus Keyamo, Tinubu said Obi should also list his achievements during his tenure as governor of Anambra State before any debate can hold.

Keyamo said Obi should name any political party he formed.

He said Obi should disclose those he had mentored in politics who are still with him before asking for a debate.

“Before Obi can stand shoulder to shoulder with Asiwaju to debate, he should first release a manifesto for scrutiny; then he should list his tangible achievements as Governor of Anambra State compared to the tangible achievements of Asiwaju as Governor of Lagos State.

“Then he should list those he has mentored in politics from the days of his being Governor who is still with him now; then he should tell us any political party he has either formed or partnered to form and which he still belongs to today.”

“Everyone appointed into this group has been given the charge to engage Lagosians on our message. They have shown their readiness to work and take the campaign to the voters in theirs abodes. Our operation and activities are independent of the party’s ongoing campaign but we will be working in complementary to the campaign activities of the party.”
