Oyo 2024: Olatunji Receives Rousing Welcome Amidst Wild Jubilation In Oluyole
The Chairmanship Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Oluyole local government, Akeem Olatunji received a rousey welcome by party faithful at the first party meeting at the Local Government.
The Chairman of PDP in Oluyole, Alhaji Mukaila Adegbola, in his welcome address at the meeting held at the Idi-ayunre party Secretariat described Olatunji as an ‘Omoluabi’ who has continued to make Oluyole proud at the state level.
While rallying more support for Olatunji ahead of the coming 2024 local government election, Alhaji Adegbola urged Olatunji not to change from his ways and style of politics which endeared him to most of the party leaders, elders and stakeholders in Oluyole.
He noted that the rousey welcome given to Olatunji was a message indicating love and unity of purpose stressing the need for sustained party cohesion and protection of Governor Makinde’s legacy of good governance particularly in the local government.
While expressing appreciation to the party, Olatunji said his candidature was a product of the support he has continued to enjoy from leaders, elders and critical stakeholders of the party in Oluyole.
Olatunji particularly thanked Governor Makinde’s ally, Otunba Seye Famojuro for his leadership and guidance while describing him as a strong pillar in Oyo state political landscape who has committed himself to lifting up less privileged politicians with nobody to advocate for them.
“I must stress at this point that my deepest appreciation will always go to one of the strongest political pillars in Oyo state today as far as PDP is concerned; Otunba Seye Famojuro. He’s an advocate for the voiceless and has continued to fight for what is right and just.
“As an ardent disciple of Governor Seyi Makinde, I’m his political son and his my political father and leader so, when we his political children all came to make request from him as our father, I had Otunba Seye Famojuro advocating my case and my request become a reality.
“This is entirely a political family affair and my emergence as the Chairmanship candidate of our great party is to align with the vision of our political father and leader in line with his core cardinal pillars upon which his government was built to further bring development to our people at the grassroots.
“Bearing this in mind, I want to say that internal politics is over in the meantime, we must unite ourselves and be more formidable ahead of the coming election next year and I assure you that our people will be empowered to have that needed sense of belonging in the scheme of things.” Olatunji said.
Olatunji was accompanied to the meeting by his wife, Mrs Balikis Olatunji, Secretary of Oluyole LG, Hon Azeez Babalola, and 18 of the Local Government’s Leaders in Oluyole among others.
