Ondo 2020: Akure Indigenes In UK Call On Voters To Rally Support For Jegede’s Victory



By Niyi Olutunde, Akure

The executive and members of Akure Descendants Union (ADU) United Kingdom (UK/NI), has called on the eligible voters in Ondo state and Akure indigenes in particular to rally support for the PDP and its candidate, Eyitayo Jegede in order to enjoy the real dividends of democracy through their unprecedented votes in the forthcoming October 10 governorship election in the state.

This was contained in a statement jointly signed by the President of the Union, Anthony Faleyimu, General Secretary Prince Adewale Ogunlade and Social/Publicity Secretary, Felix Oriakhi, and made available to journalists on Saturday in Akure, the state capital.

The group expressed the belief that the enviable pedigree of the Senior Advocate coupled with the yearnings of the people to live a better life would facilitate his overall victory at the poll after the general election.

ADU, therefore, described the victory of Jegede, the flag bearer for the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming gubernatorial poll, as a sign of good thing to come to the Sunshine state.

The statement reads, “we the indigenes of Akure in the United Kingdom (UK) are indeed happy and praying fervently to have you as the next executive governor of Ondo State .

“The impressive victory you had in the primary poll clearly demonstrates the rock -solid trust and confidence that the people of Ondo State have in your vision and dedication to the progress and prosperity of the state and we are pledging our allegiance and support to you in this God’s own project”.

“With your proven integrity and humane disposition, we have no doubt that Ondo state electorates irrespective of party affiliation will use their votes to see you occupying Alagbaka seat of power on February 24, 2022.”

The group lamented that the citizenry are not enjoying the best of time at present because of harsh policies especially skyrocketed tuition fees in all tertiary institutions in the state, high cost of access to health facilities, heavy taxation on pauperised citizenry and massive unemployment.

They therefore pledged to do everything possible to facilitate victory for the eminent legal luminary, who will bring succour to the people through robust governance.
