The Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the forthcoming Osun State Governorship election, Senator Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke has declared that he will be a Governor who listens to the voice of the masses and identifies with their yearnings and aspirations in conception and implantation of programmes.
Adeleke made this promise while addressing Traditional rulers and Community leaders in Awo, Egbedore Local Government of Osun State in continuation of his campaign tour of the state.
The PDP candidate said Osun State deserves a new leaf of life especially considering the fact that the present Government has failed to fulfil any of the promises it made to the electorate four years ago.
While declaring that Osun State is too endowed to be poor, Adeleke attributed the lack of infrastructure in most part of the state and absence of adequate welfare for the people to the self-catering politics of the ruling APC which must be rejected by the people.
He promised to facilitate the completion of the Iddo Osun Airport as well as establish micro Agric processing industry in rural areas to create jobs and boost the local economy.
He declared ” I will not be a Governor that sits in the office but my deputy and I will be in the various communities supervising projects and getting direct feedback from the people. We will listen to you and work with you to restore the glory of Osun state”
Speaking earlier, the Director General of the Ademola Adeleke campaign organisation, Hon Sunday Bisi said in line with the PDP all inclusive style of governance, Traditional rulers will be given a pride of place in the administration of Senator Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke when elected into office.
In their various responses, the Alawo of Awo, Oludo of Iddo-Osun, Elekuro, Olokinni and other Obas in Egbedore Local Government described Senator Adeleke as coming from a background of selfless service as epitomised by his father who was a Senator and his elder brother who was Osuns first civilian Governor.
They expressed the gratitude of the people of Egbedore Local Government for the various projects facilitated in the past by Senator Adeleke for various communities in the Local Government and urged him not to renege on his promises when elected as Governor.
The Traditional rulers took turns to pray for God’s favour upon the PDP candidate in the July 16th Governorship election.
Other highlights of the campaign tour was the commissioning of various projects executed by the serving member of the House of Representatives, Bamidele Salam, in Iragberi, Awo and Okinni communities.
The campaign ended with a mega rally at the Olorunsogo Community Park where thousands of enthusiastic Party members, traders and artisans trooped out to receive Senator Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke and assured him of their support in the forthcoming elections.
