In its New Year message to the people of the area, the Coordinator of the group, Comrade Adeniyi, Alimi Sulaiman stated that in the interest of justice, fair play and equity, the area should be allowed to produce the successor to the outgoing governor, Engr. Rauf Aregbesola.
According to Comrade Sulaiman, after a meeting with some youths in his country home, Awo, the headquarters of Egbedore Local Government Area of the State on Tuesday, Senator Adeleke should work round the clock by ensuring that the district presents credible and generally acceptable governorship candidate for September 22nd, 2018 governorship election.
He equally counselled the Senator to shun those he referred to as “selfish politicians who are mounting pressure on him to declare intent for the race.”
On the way forward, the group urged political leaders and gladiators from the district to close ranks in their various political parties to ensure that the district produces their parties as flag bearers.
“We wish to assure the good people of Osun State, especially Osun West Senatorial district, that the district would produce the next governor of the state in the interest of justice, equity and fairness with political equation.”, Comrade Suleiman said.
