An All Progressives Congress chieftain in Ogun State, Otunba Babatunde Onakoya, fondly called Debasco has declared that in the interest of equity, fairness and justice, the people of Ogun State must support the quest for Ogun West to produce for the first time the governor of the state in May 2019.
Onakoya made this appeal at his Ijebu Ode residence while playing host to Chief Tolu Odebiyi, Chief of Staff to Gov. Amosun and one of the governorship candidates for the state. The popular politician and socialite described Odebiyi as the right choice for the job at hand having garnered sufficient experience both as a highly successful businessman and part of the success story of Gov. Ibikunle Amosun’s effort to rebuild the state in the last six years.
He added that ‘’ as the son of an Awoist and cool headed politician who had made sufficient marks for himself in the business world and part of the success story of Gov. Amosun, I am confident that under the intelligent leadership of Chief Tolu Odebiyi, the fortunes of our dear State will soar higher’’.
Responding, Chief Odebiyi disclosed that his courtesy call on the APC chieftain was to thank him for his deep affection for him as well as his commendable efforts to strengthen the ruling party in the State.
Appealing to the people of Ogun east to support his governorship ambition, Odebiyi promised to consolidate on the giant strides of Gov. Ibikunle Amosun while also ensuring that every part of the State witness unprecedented development.
