…lauds Afuape, Gov Abiodun on OGSIEC
The chairmanship ambition of Ogbeni Akano Yaya Kayode (AYK) on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC has received a major boost as Reformation Movement Worldwide (RMW) throws weight behind his candidacy for the forthcoming local government election in Abeokuta South.
RMW made the affirmation on Saturday during its monthly meeting, held at Abeokuta, saying this development will positively pave way for AYK, a former Independent Campaign Group Coordinator for Abeokuta South and presently the Ogun Central Coordinator of the same group.
Confirming their support of AYK, the meeting nominated a 15 members committee, led by Elder Joseph Salako.
The Publicity Secretary of RMW/AYK Support Committee, Lateef Owodunni, said the decision to support AYK was as a result of his credentials, steadfastness, track records and above all, the youth agenda the movement believes in.
Owodunni also called on key players in the primary electoral process to play by the rules, stressing that AYK has paid his dues and was at the forefront of Governor Abiodun’s aspiration. Therefore, everything possible within the rule of law must be done to produce a youth-oriented person to lead Abeokuta South.
Furthermore, the group commended Ogun State Commissioner for local government and chieftaincy Affairs, Hon. Afolabi Afuape for his support to the group.
Owodunni said “Hon. Afuape has paid an enormous price to inspire hope as an apostle of greater tomorrow. He inspired confidence amongst RMW on AYK aspiration. He has always identified with our beliefs and we cannot but thank him for that.”
In the same vein, RMW applauded Governor Dapo Abiodun over what they described as “successful composition and inauguration of the state independent electoral commission”, OGSIEC.
They further commended the Governor for showing exceptional commitment to good governance in Ogun state and Nigeria as a whole.
The group noted that with the level of preparation going on towards the conduct of local government election, the Governor is matching his words with equal action, adding that Ogun state is blessed to have Governor Abiodun at the helms of affairs at this time our own is aspiring.
