ABEOKUTA—THE Ogun Professional League, yesterday, drummed support for the governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress, ADC, Prince Gboyega Nasir Isiaka and described him as the best person to unleash the economic and social potentials of the state.
Rising from its meeting in Abeokuta, the group said they have painstakingly watched the campaigns of all the major candidates and have come to the decision that Isiaka did not only possess the requisite experience for the job but he has the integrity and clean heart needed to run people’s friendly government.
They also pleaded with the electorates to shun vote buying and ignore people asking for the PVC’s in exchange for money.
In a statement by its Chairman, Engr. Tade Ogunsayo, he said: “It took us several months to study all the candidates and their political parties and we have come to the conclusion that ADC was not only peaceful but has the candidate the public can trust.”
“Besides, we are in support of the decisions of Yewa/Awori Traditional rulers and leaders of thought that had earlier endorsed him as the candidate of Ogun West that has not produced governor since 1976 when the state was created.
“We also want to appeal to Governor Ibikunle Amosun to align with the decision of Yewa/Awori leaders if, indeed, is desirous of making Ogun West indigene the next governor of the State. Splitting the vote with his crony may not be the best.
The statement reads: “We have personally discussed with Isiaka and we can say it without fear of contradiction that many candidates are afraid of GNI. They are privy to many credible opinion polls that favoured him as winner of the election with a clear margin, that’s the reason they want to distract him and the general public with fake news.”
