Ondo guber race: Why Aiyedatiwa will get our support —Ikale leader, Gen. Bajowa


The people of Ayeka community in Okitipupa local government area of Ondo State have pledged their support for Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa and his administration.

The community leaders, led by Rtd. Gen. Joseph Oluyemi Bajowa, the Jagunmolu of Ikale land and a Prince of Igbotako married to a Princess of Ayeka who is also the Regent of the community, endorsed the candidacy of the Governor for the November 16 governorship election in the State.

Speaking during a courtesy visit to the governor in Akure on Friday, Gen. Bajowa said the Governor has done more than enough to earn the trust and support of the people of the State.

He said: “We are here on behalf of the entire Ayeka kingdom to pledge our unalloyed support and to congratulate you on your excellent governance in the State.

“We want to specially commend your leadership style and the remarkable progress and peace that you have brought to Ondo State. We stand firmly behind you.”

Bajowa also informed the Governor that Ayeka kingdom has been under the rule of a regent for many years and urged the governor to intervene in the process to expedite the installation of a new king.

In response, Governor Aiyedatiwa thanked the elders for the visit and their declaration of support for his administration.

The Governor commended General Bajowa’s patriotic service to Nigeria, acknowledging that his dedication and selflessness have contributed to the country’s peace.

The Governor said, “I appreciate this solidarity visit, especially during a time of political transition. Your visit at this critical juncture is a great honour and signifies the strong support of the Ayeka kingdom for this administration.”

The Governor, who emphasized the importance of the visit, added: “Not many people are willing to show their support during election season. I therefore appreciate this endorsement from Ayeka community.

Addressing the issue of installing a new monarch, Governor Aiyedatiwa clarified: “We will not choose a king for you; that is the responsibility of the Ayeka community. Our role is to oversee the process and ensure its swift completion. I urge the community leaders to write to the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs to expedite the process.”

In attendance were the Deputy Governor, Dr. Olayide Adelami, Chief of Staff to the Governor, Prince Segun Omojuwa, the Regent of Ayeka kingdom, Princess Oluyemi Bajowa, the Konye of Ayeka, Oloja Kolawole Adeule, the Odunwo of Ayeka, Oloja Obolo Omosuyi, and the Petu of Ayeka, Chief Adeolu Ayelomi.
