2024: Selling points that will win Ondo guber race for Aiyedatiwa —Hon. Omole reveals

By: Oluwatosin Adesola

The Special Adviser to the Ondo state Governor on Information, Hon. Olugbenga Omole, has described accessibility to Governor Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa by the people of the state including leaders as his selling point as preparation for April 25 APC primary and November 16, 2024 governorship election.

Speaking on a TV programme on Wednesday, Akogun Omole said the Governor had also stepped into the shoes of the former Governor, late Rotimi Akeredolu by embarking on key projects to consolidate on the achievements of the administration.

Omole who is a former lawmaker, said, “Governor Aiyedatiwa is accessible and that is one of his selling points and why people keep loving him, he is somebody you can knock at his door, he lives in his private house with neighbours around him just like a normal person, sometimes, as at 11pm the Governor is still in the office attending to people, for the very first time in seven years, he met with the Elders of the party.

“A lot of things that have not happened in the past, is happening now and that is why people are showing massive love to him on daily basis, torrent of endorsement all days from different groups and good people of the state both home and diaspora.

“There is no opposition in Ondo State, what I mean is that there is no opposition that can wrestle power with APC in Ondo state, though, there are  parties around but they don’t have the capacity to wrestle with APC.”

The Special Adviser said Governor Aiyedatiwa’s accommodating style of leadership had been winning more key politicians to join the APC from other opposition parties ahead of the governorship election.

Omole opined that, “One of the PDP leaders, a former Deputy Speaker just left PDP for APC and this is happening every day, when you don’t have opposition party that can measure up to 10percent  of what you have, it really means there is no opposition.

“On daily basis, people are trooping from other parties to APC because of Governor Aiyedatiwa’s style of leadership. Governor Aiyedatiwa has shown character and capacity that is capable to deliver good Governance for the people of Ondo state

“A lot has been done in less than three months as Governor, firstly he instructed all contractors to back to site, he gave a marching order, he also assured that all road project approved by his principal will be concluded, he has flag off construction of rural roads and a tune amount of N3.4b has been approved immediately and the people are appreciative to this latest development.

“Ondo state is one of the most secured states in Nigeria, because the Governor is doing a lot on the security of lives and properties of the people, in the next couple of days now the Governor as approved more purchase of operational vehicles to the security agencies including Amotekun Corps.

“There is an overhead bridge going on in Akure, if you see the speed at which the construction is moving, then you will understand the fact that we have a serious government in power.

“They are still cooking up problems, some of them are Aspirants now, Aiyedatiwa defeated them once and he will defeat them again, they are the one who sponsored his impeachment, the House of Assembly members are our brothers, we knew what was happening, the same set of people cooking up issues ahead of the APC primary, and as God will have Ondo state will be lucky on 25th of April 2024 and also November 2024 election.

“He (Akeredolu) assisted him to run for Senate, to run for house of representatives and also nominated him for NDDC board, he saw something in Aiyedatiwa which all these other people didn’t know, a man that is very loyal, humble, and right well Akeredolu had prepared him to succeed him.

“Aiyedatiwa is already wearing the shoe of Akeredolu and he is prepared for governance, he learnt a lot from his late principal, infact if you listen to Akeredolu’s speech on the day of their inauguration, he said it to the whole world that for him he fulfilled and you’re are the next, because all critical stakeholders that matters have key into the Aiyedatiwa project, even non-Indigenes, and come April 25 (APC governorship primary) the story will be a positive one.

“I have been in and out of Government since 2001 and I understand perfectly on the candidates on the wining side use to be, am an insider, I know most of the politicians in Ondo state, I know where everyone belongs, some aspirants contesting now are nomadic politicians, they have been coming every four years and when they loss they move to another party.

“Ondo state people already know that Aiyedatiwa is an innocent, that some people just wanted to persecute, they are aware of what he went through before finally becoming a Governor, that alone has created self love for him and its an added advantage to his project,” Omole said.
