The frontline APC governorship candidate in Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun has promised the people of the state that he will not make his deputy redundant or a ‘spare tyre’ as people do insinuate.
He said the works ministry will be assigned under her care as a civil engineer. He made this comment while addressing his teeming supporters in Ado town of Ado Odo Ota local government axis during his ward to ward campaign to local government areas.
“I have gone round the major towns in your local government from Agbara to Lusada to Igbesa down to Ado here and I have seen the deplorable conditions of your roads. I can feel the agony of the residents of these areas and I want to assure you that we will address this condition immediately we are sworn in by the special grace of God.”
“Let me also state categorically that my deputy who is a qualified civil engineer and daughter of this local government will oversee the ministry of works to ensure that all these deplorable roads are prioritized in our administration.” He said
Earlier, the Chief Imam of Ado Kingdom, Alhaji Soliu Abanigbe while praying for the success of Prince Dapo Abiodun at the poll, urges him not to be deceitful in his campaign promises.
However, thousands of ADP and PDP members were received into the APC fold and welcome into the party by the APC candidate and party leaders.
The ADP was led by the Ajiroba of Ado Kingdom, High Chief Rahmon Ogunola while the PDP members were led by the Akogun Ado kingdom, High Chief Michael Adekunle respectively.
