Osun 2022:: Timi Of Ede Urges Subjects To Vote Oyetola
Timi of Ede, Oba Munirudeen Adesola Lawal, has pull his weight behind the re-election of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Governor Adegboyega Oyetola saying that he has performed well during his first term in office.
The monarch who spoke while receiving the campaign trail of APC in his palace at the weekend urged indigenes and residents of the ancient town to go out en masse on July 16 to vote for Oyetola declared his personal support for the re-election of Governor Oyetola, as part of efforts to reciprocate his good gestures for the people of the town.
Oba Lawal acknowledged some of the interventions of the Oyetola-led government in the last three and a half years towards the socioeconomic and infrastructural development of the town, saying, “one good turn deserves another.”
This is even as the Governor noted that his socioeconomic, infrastructural interventions were not in any way premised on politics or sentiment but rather on the avowed commitment to meet the people’s needs and deliver equitably on the mandate freely given to him.
Oyetola who later addressed a mammoth crowd at the open field of Oba Laoye Grammar School, Ede, said God put him in power to serve the good people of the State, adding that he will not relent in his efforts to continue to bring succour and ensure the dividends of democracy and good governance in the State.
“I thank God that if someone is known to have loved Ede, I love Ede. If I can recollect vividly when I was campaigning in 2018, I know how people demanded for the reconstruction of road linking Oke-Gada to Ejigbo junction. I did the road not because of politics but because of our love for the people of Ede.
“We know how the Oke-Gada road was before our intervention. We have identified other roads in Ede to be reconstructed. My three and a half years in office was full of landmark developments despite obvious challenges occasioned by COVID-19 and EndSars.
“So, I am here to seek your support and prayers as I am seeking re-election. Please, support us to complete our eight years and I can assure you that before the end of my eight years, Ede will be turned around for better. This is the time of reward. I believe that Kabiyesi loves me wholeheartedly and I want you to help to talk to the people to vote for us”, Oyetola said.
The former Speaker, Osun House of Assembly and Ambassador to Mexico, Barrister Adejare Bello, said Governor Oyetola has justified his love for Ede, not minding the level of support and votes he got in the 2018 governorship election.
He called on the people of Ede to turn out in large number to vote for the Governor as part of efforts to reciprocate his good gestures for the town.
