Aiyedatiwa Group Commends Interior Minister on Party Cohesion

Mainstream campaign group for Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa of Ondo State, the Lucky Aiyedatiwa Campaign Organisation (LACO-FS) has lauded the Interior Minister, Mr. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, for his various roles in ensuring the expansion and unity of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in both Akokoland and the entire state.

The group gave the commendation during a campaign rally in Okeagbe, Akoko Northwest hometown of the minister.

In a statement issued by the State Information Director of the LACO-FS, Mr. Kayode Fasua, the organisation’s Convener, Dr Oladipupo Okeyomi, also known as Carry Go, described Tunji-Ojo, widely known as BTO, as a grassroots mobiliser par excellence.

“We are convinced that BTO is a grassroots mobiliser par excellence, considering reports of the daily influx of members to our great party, the APC, in Akokoland and to a large extent, other parts of the state.

“Also, his imprimatur is evident in the various amenities he had aided to put in place to brighten the faces of his people.

“Certainly, BTO is on the same page with Governor Aiyedatiwa in terms of development drive, and party growth,” Okeyomi commended.

In the same vein, a member of the state’s House of Assembly representing Akoko North West Constituency, Hon. Fatai Atere, at the rally described the minister as a forthright and hardworking political leader.

Earlier at the rally, Okeyomi had conveyed the governor’s message to residents of Akoko North West, that all their requests regarding amenities and empowerment benefits, would be given accelerated attention.

“Look at how within three months of assuming office, the governor had mobilised virtually all contractors back to site, and had cleared backlogs of unpaid salaries.

“So such is the man to be supported to continue in office, so that he can meet all your requests concerning social amenities and other benefits,” Okeyomi urged.

Speaking too, during the inauguration of Akoko North West Directorate of the LACO-FS, the State Director-General of the organisation, Mr. Saka Yusuf-Ogunleye, commended the prevailing unity in the council area’s APC, urging the party members to give the governor their block vote in the primaries.

While interfacing with artisans on the occasion, the LACO-FS State Director of Artisans who also heads the state’s Micro-credit Agency, Barr (Mrs) Adenike Ademujimi, disclosed that Governor Aiyedatiwa recently earmarked over N2 billion to serve as soft loans and requisite grants to traders, peasant farmers, and artisans.

She appealed to people of the area to take advantage of the kind gesture.

On the occasion, the LACO-FS Director-General for Akoko North West, Alhaji Rasheed Badmus, expressed appreciation to the APC leadership in the local government for their unrelenting efforts in mobilising supports for Governor Aiyedatiwa.

Other LACO-FS officials present on the occasion include a representative of Prince Biyi Poroye, the Co-convener; Hon. Bisi Ogungbemi, State Deputy Director-General (North); Hon. David Ajobiewe, Director-General, Akoko South West; Hon. (Mrs) Fola Vincent, State Director, Women Affairs; Hon.
