…says APC has offered best candidates to turn around Nigeria’s fortunes
…restates Osun will deliver over 1 million votes for APC
The immediate past governor of Osun State, Adegboyega Oyetola on Thursday inaugurated the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), in Osogbo.
Oyetola who is the State Coordinator, Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council tasked the newly-inaugurated members of the PCC to intensify efforts towards ensuring all round victory for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate, Alhaji Kashim Shettima and all candidates of the party in the forthcoming general elections.
This is even as Oyetola reiterated that Osun would ensure the delivery of over a million votes for the party’s flag-bearer, saying APC has offered the best candidate to turn around Nigeria’s fortunes.
He said no stone would be left unturned to ensure the emergence of Tinubu and Shettima as well as all the candidates of the party in the national and state assemblies elections.
Oyetola noted that the country is in dire need of a competent individual like Tinubu to build on the gains of the present administration and drive the nation’s potential for socio-economic growth and development.
According to him, there is no room for experiment on the choice of the next president at this critical time, hence the need to elect Tinubu whose political pedigree and antecedents are second to none.
“Asiwaju is a pathfinder and leader per excellence. Once he identifies a problem, he not only solves it, but also comes up with institutional framework to ensure such a problem does not occur again.
“For instance, to tackle perennial flooding, he dredged the Atlantic Ocean, reclaimed the land and created the Eko Atlantic City where you have various economic activities going on there today.
“Our Presidential candidate is not only a problem solver, he is a genius, a roadmap designer and an implementor who out of little or nothing, turned around the socioeconomic fortunes of Lagos State.
“Additionally, the team is the only one that has the required capacity and political wherewithal to reposition Nigeria by building on the gains of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration,” he said.
Earlier, the acting state APC Chairman, Tajudeen Lawal, urged the party’s loyalists to begin door-to-door campaign and mobilisation of people to troop out en masse to elect and ensure victory for the party.
Lawal who described the choice of Tinubu as a round peg in a round hole said the time has come for all lovers of good governance to get him elected.
Speaking in the same vein, Speaker, Osun House of Assembly, Hon. Timothy Owoeye expressed confidence in God that Oyetola would be victorious and returned as the governor while Tinubu would also be elected the next president of the country.
Owoeye who described the outcome of the July 16, 2022 governorship election as declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC as a temporary setback, said God would soon return Oyetola back to govern the state for a second term before July this year.
He urged party loyalists to embark on unit-based campaigns across the state saying no effort must be spared to ensure victory for all the party’s candidates in the next general elections.
In their separate remarks, former Deputy Governor, Mrs. Titilayo-Laoye Ponle; former Minister of Health, Prof Isaac Adewole; former Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Jelili Adesiyan among others urged the loyalists of the party to remain resolute in the collective quest to ensure all round victory for the party.
