The governor of Osun State, Ademola Adeleke, has asked voters in the state to support PDP candidates in the State Assembly elections on March 11 so that he can serve them better as he pointer out achievements he has made so far.
According to Sun News, the governor’s spokesman, Olawale Rasheed, revealed on Saturday that Adeleke made this claim in his speech before to the start of his 100 days in office.
Speaking in Yoruba, Governor Adeleke thanked the electorate for their support in the general election on February 25 and the July 16 governorship election, adding, “For me to continue serving you properly, I kindly ask that you vote for the 26 House of Assembly candidates of the PDP.”
“I’ll be working with them as a team. They are crucial to putting the Imole agenda into action. The key to maximizing democratic benefits is a State Assembly that is completely under PDP control.
“The election on Saturday is important for Osun state. Voting for those candidates for the Assembly is also a vote for me. To better serve you and finish the task we started, I need them. Another victory for me and the PDP will hasten the already-made development and propel our state to new heights.”
