Osun State Governor and gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adegboyega Oyetola has averred that he will emerge victorious in the July 16 election.
Addressing residents and supporters at Ila Orangun in Ila local government area, on Friday during his campaign, Oyetola urged the people to vote for him for continuity in his developmental agenda.
He said, “APC will emerge victorious in Osun. We are currently working on Ila/Arandun road. We have brought University to the community which will create job opportunities for youths. We have done this and you should reward us by voting us into power.
“We have plans and the wisdom to execute them. We invested in health, education, agriculture and other sectors massively. We are feeding 30,000 vulnerable every month.
“This power is in my hand, I won’t drop it because your vote will retain it in my hand. My eight years in power as governor is sure with God on my side.”
The governor enjoined the citizens who are yet to collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to do so, saying they should vote massively for APC.
“Don’t panic God has ordained us, they will be going about with money, Don’t be swayed by it. Dont sell your children’s future. They will not be available after the election, they’re opportunists. But we are here for you any day. Don’t take an oath because of the opposition’s money.
Earlier, the Director-General of Oyetola Campaign Council, Ajibola Basiru appreciated the indigenes for their usual support.
He urged them to vote massively and reelect Governor Oyetola.
Meanwhile, as the campaign train of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of Osun hit Ede on Saturday, the Timi of Ede, Oba Munirudeen Adesola Lawal pledged his support and urged residents of the town to reelect the governor.
Oba Lawal who endorsed the All Progressives Congress(APC) candidate noted that the Governor has performed excellently well and deserves to be returned for a second term as part of efforts to reciprocate his good gestures for the people of the town.
The monarch acknowledged some of the interventions of the Oyetola-led government in the last three and a half years towards the socioeconomic and infrastructural development of the town, saying, “one good turn deserves another.”
“Oyetola is Omoluabi par excellence. He is known for peace and tranquility. You are doing well. There is no doubt in what the two previous speakers have said as regards the landmark developments that your administration has brought to my town since your assumption of office.
“The development is obvious and people can see it, most importantly your intervention on infrastructure. Nobody can do it all. I am happy for you because you have many things to point at and make reference to in terms of development. That is why you are confident to come for our support. Your good gesture will in no doubt trigger the need for the people to support and vote for you,” he said.
Addressing the crowd that welcomed him in the home town of Sen. Ademola Adeleke, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Governor Oyetola said his infrastructural interventions were not in any way premised on politics.
He said God put him in power to serve the good people of the State, adding that he will not relent in his efforts to continue to bring succour and ensure the dividends of democracy and good governance in the State.
“I thank God that if someone is known to have loved Ede, I love Ede. If I can recollect vividly when I was campaigning in 2018, I know how people demanded for the reconstruction of road linking Oke-Gada to Ejigbo junction. I did the road not because of politics but because of our love for the people of Ede.
“We know how the Oke-Gada road was before our intervention. We have identified other roads in Ede to be reconstructed. My three and a half years in office was full of landmark developments despite obvious challenges occasioned by COVID-19 and EndSars.
“So, I am here to seek your support and prayers as I am seeking re-election. Please, support us to complete our eight years and I can assure you that before the end of my eight years, Ede will be turned around for better. This is the time of reward. I believe that Kabiyesi loves me wholeheartedly and I want you to help to talk to the people to vote for us,” Oyetola said.
