Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, has solicited the support of traditional rulers and citizens of Oke Ogun for the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the party rounded off its three-day road shows and campaign rallies to the zone, on Friday.
The governor said his administration had kept faith with the Oke Ogun people since 2011 and promised that the APC would do more for the zone, if its governorship candidate, Adebayo Adelabu, is elected into office.
Ajimobi, who is the APC’s candidate for Oyo South Senatorial District, had led the campaign trail of the party to the axis, from Wednesday to Friday, touring all the 10 local governments and local council development areas (LCDAs) in the process.
He also canvassed support for President Muhammadu Buhari, Adelabu and other candidates of the party in the forthcoming elections.
Addressing the party’s supporters in Igboho, the governor said the next administration would further harness the agricultural potential of Oke Ogun, in furtherance of the APC’s agenda to make the zone the food basket of the country.
He used the opportunity to clarify that his administration did not owe any member of the House of Assembly a dime in salaries and allowances, just as he labelled the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and its ilk as band of liars.
The governor said the clarification became necessary to put a lie to claims by some opposition lawmakers from the area, that they were being owed allowances.
