Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun on Thursday officially kick-started his campaign for re-election from Imeko-Afon Local Government Area of the state.

Abiodun, who is seeking a second term on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), was accompanied by chieftains of the party, led by former Governor Olusegun Osoba as well as other leaders across the state and candidates of the party from Ogun West.

They were at Afon, Ilara communities with grand finale of the campaign held at Imeko, the headquarters of the zone.

The governor also took time to visit traditional rulers from the zone to seek their royal blessings ahead of the 2023 general elections 

The campaign rally also recorded a new feat as a number of party members returned home with various household items as well as working equipment to support their choice trade and profession, having won during a draw 

Osoba, while addressing the crowd, explained that his being at Imeko-Afon was like a home coming, recalling that it was his administration that brought electricity to the region.

The APC leader said Governor Abiodun has achieved a lot in the last three and half years across the three senatorial districts of the state, even as he urged members to genuinely work towards the success of the party at poll.

He also encouraged the electorate to vote for the candidates of APC in all the elections 

“I am happy to be here again because I brought electricity to the entire region during my tenure. This is homecoming. I told Governor Dapo Abiodun to emulate me and he’s doing that. I am convinced that he’s capable, so let us vote for him and all All Progressives Congress(APC) candidates,” Osoba said. 

In his speech Abiodun said he is known as a pledge keeper, even as he encouraged the electorate to motivate him with their votes.

He pledged that his administration will establish technical college in Imeko and also address the challenges of bad roads in the local government area.

Abiodun also assured that his administration will re-construct the Abeokuta -Afon road.

He said: “I will commence the reconstruction before the end of the election to boost the socio-economic development of this area.

“We reconstructed Oke-Ola road here Imeko -Afon within stipulated period. We have been doing our projects without making noise and we will not stop doing things that would be making our people happy.”

The governor canvassed for votes for all APC candidates in the state, especially its presidential candidate, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“We have constructed at least one road per local government since we came into power. The last time we witnessed such was during the administration of Chief Olusegun Osoba.

“We will not relent in doing more for the people of the state. I urged you to go and collect your Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) to enable you participate in the elections.

“The deadline for collection is January 15th. Please encourage one and other to participate actively in the electoral process for continuity,” he added.
