2023: Aspirants Declare Support For Abiodun’s Second Term, Donate Solar Equipment


October 21, (THEWILL) – Four aspirants for the State House of Assembly in Ijebu North State Constituency, under the umbrella body of the All Progressives Congress (APC), have declared support for Governor Dapo Abiodun’s reelection bid in Ogun State in the 2023 election.

They are Ademola Osofodunrin, Adeshina Oluwaseun, Adesanya Adekunle and Abiodun Odutayo.

The aspirants, who met and pledged their support for the governor on Thursday, in Abeokuta, the state capital, donated 500 Solar street lights to the state government.

Speaking on behalf of the donors, Abiodun Odutayo, stated that they would remain committed and loyal to the party in the state, noting that they would put in their best towards ensuring the success of Abiodun in 2023.

Odutayo, who commended the governor for his massive infrastructural development across the state, said that the donation of the 500 Solar street lights was just the beginning of their support, saying the second phase would see them move to schools in the state.

Receiving the solar equipment, the governor commended the donors for their spirit of sportsmanship, describing them as rare breeds of politicians that are loyal to the party

He declared that the quartet would become a reference point for others in the state, stressing that despite losing the party ticket did not leave the APC, while asking other aspirants to emulate them

“The gentlemen here who contested elections and they did not win, yet, they have demonstrated statesmanship. They have demonstrated unparalleled commitment, and they have exemplified unequalled party loyalty and a deep sense of patriotism.

“This is extremely remarkable, I want to thank you on behalf of the entire party because what you have done is that you have shown leadership, by what you have done today, you will become a reference point,”

“I am hoping that other aspirants will look at you and emulate you, they don’t have to go and invest in solar panels, but let them just see this disposition of yours and take a cue from it because it is not common. It is uncommon wisdom that God has given you, when people contest and don’t win, they just jump ship, you have done very well,” he added

Abiodun, who said that he won’t forget the gesture from the aspirants, said that the donation is the first he would be receiving from anyone for his second term bid.

“I will not forget this gesture, this is the first of its kind since I have become governor, you are the first set of aspirants to donate to our course, I have received donations from campaigns, and vehicles by different local governments, but, this is the first donation I am receiving from aspirants towards this election”, he stressed.
