He stated that they have alll been life-long followers of Bukola Saraki for over 20-years, but their community as a whole could not boast of a project executed all through the 16-years of Saraki’s leadership of the State.

In his own comment, Bamidele Sunday, popularly known as.’Omoga’, stated that the PDP administration which held sway in the state for over two decades had consistently decieved the people of Obbo-Aiyegunle with the promise of constructing their major road which links the community to other part of Kwara’ State, but the past administration under Bukola Saraki leadership never for once fulfill any one of the promises.
“The best we ever saw were two occasions, both nearing general elections, when they would decieve us to vote for them, by bringing road construction machinery to the road, only to remove the machines immediately elections were over.

“However, governor AbdulRasaq AbdulRahman has successfully started the construction of the road without any major drama and it is now at 95% completion rate, despite the fact that the present governor had never made any of such bogus promises to us.

Mr. Bamidele added that, the whole of Obbo-Aiyegunle community, resident at home and abroad, owe Governor AbdulRasaq AbdulRahman a big gratitude, which will come in a block vote for all the candidates of the All Progressive Congress, APC, during the forthcoming general elections, most especially, the governorship and the House of Assembly election.”

While recieving the defectors into the APC, the local government chairman of the party, Honourable Awelewa Olawale promised an immediate integration of the new defectors.into the campaign activities of the party in the local government, based on the political vibrancy of the defectors, being youthful-grassroot mobilisers.
