A socio political group, Ondo Good Governance has called on former house of representatives member, Hon Mayowa Akinfolarin to toss his hat in the ring for the governorship polls next year.
The group which vowed to mobilise large number of youths and women across the eighteen local government to vote for Akinfolarin said he is the only candidate that has the expertise, requisite capacity, experience to set up a structure that will cater for the welfare of the masses, party supporters, provide adequate security to protect the lives of the citizenry and deliver the state from the shackles of misgovernance.
According to the group, the state cannot afford to make another mistake in choosing the right leader, hence the need for us to beam our searchlight on a leader with proven track record of performance, infrastructural development and with capacity to deliver the dividends of democracy
In a press statement by the Coordinator of the group, Sunkanmi Alonge, said their support for the former lawmaker is for a better future for the state, noting that he (Akinfolarin) has the capacity to lead Ondo State to the future that will fulfill the dreams of the founding fathers, present and future generations.
Alonge stated that the group will mobilise artisans, students , marketers women and other stakeholders who share in the developmental vision of Akinfolarin.
“His developmental strides when he was serving as a lawmaker representing Ileoluji Oke Igbo/Odigbo federal constituency endeared him to us. He used his position as Chairman, Federal Road Safety Commission to facilitate employment opportunities for youths in the state”
“His uncommon leadership qualities and good works are impressive and worthy of emulation”, the statement read.
