Ondo 2024: Why we’ll organise victory party for Aiyedatiwa —Olafisoye, CEO Shady’s Boutique

The rationale behind the victory party organized for Ondo State Governor, Hon. Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa at the weekend was to celebrate his victory in the All Progressives Congress (APC) primary election and not to disparage the efforts of other contestants, a renowned entrepreneur, Folasade Olafisoye, has said.

Olafisoye, the Chief Executive Officer of Shady’s Boutique, who said the Governor’s victory belongs to the people of the state, appreciated the leaders of the party for their support during the contest.

Speaking at the event held in Akure on Sunday, organized by ‘Friends of Lucky’, Olafisoye, who is the Coordinator, lauded the Governor’s humongous contributions towards the development of the state which have been yielding results.

She said, “It is with immense pleasure that I stand before you today to extend a warm welcome to this momentous gathering, convened to celebrate and honour our esteemed leader, Governor Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa, on his resounding victory in the April 20 primary election of our esteemed party, the APC.

“This event, made possible by the generosity and foresight of a few dedicated individuals, serves as a testament to our collective joy and gratitude towards Governor Aiyedatiwa, whose victory was freely bestowed upon him by the overwhelming majority of our esteemed party members.

“It is important to emphasize that this celebration is not intended to disparage the efforts of other contestants who participated in the primary election. Rather, it is an opportunity to extend our congratulations and admiration to all participants, especially those who have gracefully accepted the decision of our party and the will of the people.

“Furthermore, today’s gathering affords us the opportunity to reflect on and express gratitude for the divine guidance and benevolence that has been bestowed upon Governor Aiyedatiwa. As the Scriptures remind us, “For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: He putteth down one, and setteth up another” (Psalms 75:6-7). Let us therefore marvel at the providence of the Almighty in our lives.

“Central to the essence of this event is the celebration and appreciation of our collective efforts – the hard work, dedication, and unwavering loyalty that have contributed to the success of Governor Aiyedatiwa’s vision.

“It is fitting that those who toil in the vineyard are the first to partake of its fruits. It’s on this note that we implore our amiable governor, H.E. Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa, to make bold moves in meeting political aspirations of our teaming party members in order to deepen governance at grassroots level.

“As we look ahead to the challenges and opportunities that await us, we have no doubt that H.E. Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa will continue to lead with courage, wisdom, and a steadfast commitment to the values that unite us.”

She added: “I will like to thank, most especially, Engineer Folajimi Akinnola and the people that came together to organize this epoch event with their personal resources to honour our Governor and unite all party members for the greater tasks ahead leading to the general election. It will definitely mark another milestone in the annals of our dear State.”

Corroborating the words of Olafisoye, the Deputy Coordinator, Bankole Betiku, hailed Aiyedatiwa for emerging victorious, maintaining that the event was organized to celebrate the victory and appreciate supporters.

Buttressing his points while speaking on the sidelines of the event, the Secretary of the group, Hon. Onidare Sunday Bukunmi (OSB),urged other aspirants to leave behind them the outcome of the exercise and forge ahead for the November 16 governorship election.
