APC’s Guber Candidate Promises To Resuscitate OGD’s Legacies If Elected
The Ogun State governorship candidate of the All Progressive. Congress. Prince Dapo Abiodun has promised to return Ogun State to the glorious years as experienced during the reign of Otunba Gbenga Daniel who ran a highly focussed and qualitative administration with the people as the centrepiece.
Prince Abiodun said this as he met teeming followers of former Governor Otunba Gbenga Daniel who gathered at the Asoludero residence to declare support for the APC governorship candidate.
Thanking Otunba Daniel for providing the platform to meet with his people, Abiodun said he shares many things in common with the former Governor which dwelt on mapping out policies that will turn the fortunes of the State and that of the people around for the better.
According to him: “This is why we have carefully put together a policy plan for a very effective administration that will enhance qualitative governance and create enabling environment to encourage public private partnership which was the hallmark of Otunba Gbenga Daniel’s administration between 2003 and 2011”.
In his response, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, who described the meeting as a moment of history, stated that governance of a State especially a sophisticated one like Ogun is for a matured mind who cannot be pushed against his will.
Continuing, he said that after consultation with his followers cutting across all political divides and major stakeholders in the People Democratic Party both at the State and national level and weighing the available options, “we have come to the conclusion that to rescue the State from the hands of those who held it down in the past eight years and move it forward, Prince Dapo Abiodun stands the best chance to sustain the progressives policies which were not fully tapped”.
This development, Daniel reinstated, “is not about a particular political party or individuals. There comes a time when one must rise up and take a decision. I count it as a disservice to my people and it will be against my conscience if I cannot provide leadership to my people at this crucial period. That is why, we therefore came to the conclusion that we are going to work together and ensure victory for governorship candidate of the All Progressives Party, APC, Prince Dapo Abiodun on Saturday”, he concluded.
