The birthday celebrations couldn’t submerge the business of the event as Ogbeni Baruwa and Hon Opaleye in the usual campaign traditions, presented the party flag and symbol to Ogbeni Jubril Afolabi Odulate-AFO as the Chairmanship candidate of the party in the Saturday 24th July, 2021 election.
Ogbeni Afolabi and his Vice, Comrade Isiala Salami, after appreciating the leaders and all the well wishers, promised to be very pragmatic in his approach to governance if elected. In continued that he deliberately opted not to promise much at campaigns as he is not going to the Council to run a rhetoric administration.
The seasoned politician, Ogbeni Odulate also described the Saturday election as a walk over for the believers of democracy as the supposed main opposition in the election seems to have taken to fate with their obvious docility except for some serial impostors, whom the former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, the ” eku ere, eku awada” crooner described as masters at political comedy.
