“It’s time to be more united as a formidable group towards building a solid and strong progressive party. Let’s jettison our differences,forgive each other if there is any grievances and work together as a united entity.


“As we are resolute to build a formidable frontier, we should continue to join hands together and work as a team under the leadership of Hon. Abiodun Idowu as your group lead. It is time to stimulate and reactivate party’s activities at our various units, wards and local governments even at the state level for the goodness of all and sundry”, he added.


Earlier, the immediate past Speaker, Osun State House of Assembly, Hon. Timothy Owoeye extolled the sterling performance and leadership quality of the former ALGON chairman, Abiodun Idowu who he described as an exemplary being and astute politician of repute.

In his short speech, Hon. Idowu expressed profound gratitude to Oyetola for being supportive to the group in particular and the party in general just as he specially commended the Minister for the kind gestures and massive yuletide gifts extended to party’s leaders, members and sympathisers during last Christmas and new year.


The erstwhile ALGON Chairman used the visit to specially thank President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Oyetola for appointing one of the former Chairmen, Engr.
