Gubernatorial aspirants and others seeking for elective position in 2011 have been told to eschew violence and play by the rules.
Ogun State Governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel stated this while presenting some gubernatorial aspirants on the platform of the Peopleâ€™s Democratic Party, PDP, at the Village Square meeting which rounded off the Community Demand Review Assessment tour to Ijebu North Local Government Area.
Otunba Daniel told the aspirants and crowd, which included traditional rulers, leaders of thoughts, party faithful and the generality of the people that the betterment of the society should be paramount in the minds of those seeking to lead the people. He advised them to be sportsmanlike, eschew violence and obey all rules and regulations guiding the electoral process.
He decried a situation where some elected people get to position and jettison the common good for narrow individual and parochial considerations. He also described as an immoral act the practice by some politicians who abandon the people immediately after they had been elected into office.
The Governor said the assessment tour was designed to ensure that his government continues to bond with the people while also hearing first hand the evaluation of the administration at various levels from the people.
Otunba Daniel who commissioned various road projects and buildings including workshop and office blocks at the Abraham Adesanya Polytechnic, Ijebu Igbo during the tour assured the people that his government would not stop working in spite of the general acknowledgment that it has lifted the status of Ogun State and turned things around in all sectors in the last seven years.
