Members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyan, Odo-Otin North Local Government Development Area (LCDA), on Wednesday, reaffirmed their support for the second time bid of Governor Gboyega Oyetola.
CityMirrorNews reports that the members reiterated their support during a meeting organised in Odo-Otin by the erstwhile chairmanship aspirant for the Odo-Otin North LCDA, Hon. Oluwatobi Olabode popularly called Divine.
Olabode alongside scores of his supporters declared their support for Governor Oyetola’s second term bid saying he has performed tremendously well within the space of two and half years.
He said residents of the town were marvelled with the laudable performance of the governor , hence the need for the open declaration for his 4+4 agenda.
The Oyan born young grassroot political mobiliser also dissociated himself from being a member of The Osun Progressives (TOP) saying since the agenda of the TOP was in total negation of what the APC preaches, he and his supporters have nothing to do with them.
He said what should be paramount in the heart of all the progressives members in the state is how Governor Oyetola would succeed and triumph during the coming 2022 governorship election.
“We are here to declare our support for the second term ambition of our beloved Governor, His Excellency, Mr Gboyega Oyetola.
“His tremendous performances so far are reasons behind our moves and we believe in his leadership.
“After the fallout from the caretaker committee nomination, where I lost out, many individual have gone ahead to state that I have moved to TOP or moved out of the party.
“This is very far from the truth and as a matter of fact, this is one the reasons we are here.
“We are here to debunk the rumour and to let the people know that we are for Oyetola and that anything contrary is nothing but a ruse.
“My support for Governor Oyetola is stronger than usual and I will team up with the chairman of Odo-Otin North LCDA and other leaders of the party to continue to mobilize members of this community for Oyetola’s second term. I am not a member of TOP and will not be part of them.”
Advising the Governor, Olabode said, “I call on his Excellency Mr Governor to always make good findings about those who called themselves a leader, because some are not what they portray.
“He should look for those who are his die hard loyalists to appoint to better position not fair weather friends.”
Olabode called on members of the community to continue to support Oyetola and members of the APC.
He said with full support to the current administration, dividends of democracy will not stop at their doorsteps.
Earlier in his welcome address, Chairman of the APC in Odo-Otin North LCDA, Comrade Kunle Orisagbemi said the presence of TOP members in Oyan is insignificant, stating that they have been able to “de-abuse minds of some aged people cornered” by TOP leaders.
He described Olabode Divine as a man of the people, who believes in the progressive ideas spearheaded by Governor Oyetola.
Also speaking, member of the Osun State House of Assembly representing Odo-Otin constituency, Micheal Adetoyi lauded the Governor for what he has done for the people of his constituency.
He called on APC members to be steadfast in their support for Oyetola.
Others at the meeting are: the APC Chairman, Comrade Kunle Orisagbemi, member of the Osun State House of Assembly representing Odo-Otin constituency, Micheal Adetoyi, Odo-Otin North LCDA Vice Chairman, Hon Kehinde Ajao, Councillor ward 14, Idris Kehinde, Hon Fadahunsi Niyi, ward 15b, women leader, market men and women, among others.
