The New Nigeria People’s Party governorship candidate in Ogun State, Olufemi Ajadi, has promised to redefine governance in the state if elected during next year’s election.
According to a statement on Monday, he made the promise on Saturday while visiting his Ilaro.
Oguntoyinbo, who was greeted by a large crowd of residents, specifically promised the electorates that if he was elected as the next governor, their lives would improve.
He praised the massive turnout of Ogun people from the state’s 20 local governments who welcomed him, saying it was past time for the people to feel the true impact of democracy.
“Insecurity, power outages, bad roads, and unemployment are the first targets to be addressed before tackling other challenges one by one,” he said.
He urged people to play their roles in the upcoming elections by voting massively for the NNPP.
Also speaking, the party’s state chairman, Oginni Sunday, said the incumbent Governor, Dapo Abiodun, had failed to keep promises made to citizens by his party.
He went on to say that Oguntoyinbo would keep his promises in keeping with his tradition of promising and doing. He stated that the NNPP gubernatorial candidate had a history of humanitarianism and would not let the people of Ogun down.
“He has carried out various empowerment programs for the youths of Ogun State, as well as assisted some poor students in paying their tuition fees.” “We are confident in Ajadi’s ability to deliver,” he added.
Also speaking, Tunde Oke, Southwest Zonal Secretary and Ajadi campaign Director General, stated that the PDP failed Ogun people before the APC took over, emphasizing that the electorates would overcome the current challenges if the NNPP won.
“If we want to see positive change in Ogun State, we should not hesitate to support Olufemi Ajadi’s candidacy,” he said.
Ajadi’s mother, who attended the event with some other relatives, acknowledged the presence of other Ogun State residents, particularly women.
The elder Oguntoyinbo Ojenike, the Iyalode of Ilaro, pleaded with all indigenous people and other electorates in Ogun to help shape the future of the state by voting massively for his son in the general election in 2023.
She stated that her son had always had the welfare of others in mind since he was a child and would help to improve the lives of the people of Ogun.
