Osinbajo says Ogun governorship poll crucial to party, stages road campaign

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that the governorship election slated to be held on Saturday across the 20 local government areas of the state is crucial to the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the party will do everything humanly possible to win the state despite all the political challenges being faced from breakaway Allied People’s Movement (APM).

Osinbajo, who staged a road campaign in Abeokuta on Wednesday on the main roads and markets such as Kuto, Itoku, Lafenwa, Panseke, among other places, noted that the rumour of premeditated attacks was rife and traceable to the power-that-be at the state level, saying the effective security to be put up by the security agencies would prevent such attacks.

The Vice President stated authoritatively
that the security reports reaching the Presidency indicated that some people in a position of higher authority in the state have been threatening fire during Saturday Governorship and Assembly polls and urged the electorate not to be discouraged but to come out in large number to vote APC as only the Federal Government has exclusive power in the provisions of security for protection.

He said, “We will do all humanly possible within the ambit of the law to provide adequate security for all and sundry on and after the coming Governorship and State House of Assembly elections in the state.

“So, don’t panic as we are up to the task ahead. The coming Governorship election in Ogun state is very crucial and we should all come out and vote.

“And you are to cast your votes for Prince Dapo Abiodun as the Ogun state governor. Also, vote for all House of Assembly candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the election.

“By and large, ensure your votes are counted in your presence before you leave the polling booths.

“Don’t let us turn our back at the APC, because it is the only party that can take us to the next level. And we should not cast our votes for any other party than the APC.”

Also, former governor of the state and a national leader of the party, Olusegun Osoba, enjoined the people of the state to cast their votes for Abiodun as the next governor of the state.

He said the Vice President, who was a representative of the President for the mega rally had brought good tidings for the people of the state and also to express appreciation for the electoral victory of the President Muhammadu Buhari/Yemi Osinbajo joint ticket in the Saturday, February 23, 2019 Presidential polls.

But, Governorship Candidate of the APC, Abiodun in company of his running mate, Noimot Salako-Oyedele, the Lagos West Senator, Solomon Adeola and a host of other chieftains of the party, pleaded with the people of the state to come out en-masse on Saturday and cast their votes for him as the governor of the state and the party’s House of Assembly candidates.

“We won’t promise what we would not do. But with your support during the polls, victory is sure for us in the APC.

“Come out and cast your votes for the APC. Your votes are to make Ogun state greater”, Abiodun said.
