The Oke Ogun Development Consultative  Forum (ODCF) on Thursday asked the  major political parties in the state to either field an indigene of the region or face total boycott of the election by the people of Oke Ogun.

Handling down the threat in a letter.served on the parties by a delegation led by the Secretary-General, Mr Zaccheus Ademola  to Oyo state secretariat of the Alliance for Democracy (AD), African Democratic Party (ADP), All Progressive Congress (APC), and the All Grassroot Alliance (AGA).
Others visited are, the National Rescue Mission (NRM), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), All Peoples Grand Alliance (APGA) and African Democratic Congress (ADC).

The letter which was signed by the President of ODCF, Dr Olusegun Ajuwon stated that the region is determined and have resolved that if none of the political parties in the state fields any indigene from the region, the people of the region will have nothing to do with the 2019 election.

“We are determined and we have resolved as well, that if none of the political parties fields any of our sons or daughters, we shall not have anything to do with 2019 gubernatorial election in Oyo state. We hope that the political class in the state will not dare the will of Oke Ogun people this time around,” it said.

The letter added, ” as we approach the election year of 2019, we the people of Oke-Ogun believe that it is necessary to, once again, re-state our position concerning forthcoming elections, most especially the 2019 governorship position.

“To begin  with, it may be apposite to go down the memory lane by recalling the past political contributions of Oke-Ogun people on the installation of past and present Governors of Oyo State. It is beyond dispute that all the elected governors of Oyo state rode into the exalted position of Governor, through the almost 100 per cent votes usually delivered by the Oke-Ogun people. It is on record that the sitting government was virtually installed by the totality of the undiluted votes of Oke-Ogun people.”

According to the letter, the Oke Ogun people lamented that “today, our people felt unrecognized, unprotected and marginalized, even in spite of our unalloyed loyalty to the political progress of Oyo State for several years. It is sad to note that no political party has ever thought it fit and or justifiable to field an Oke-Ogun indigene for the position of the Governor of the state, notwithstanding our consistent aspiration in this regard.
“Oke-Ogun has therefore resolved to say, ‘enough is enough’. Our resolve in Oke-Ogun is that come 2019; an Oke-Ogun indigene must become the Governor of Oyo state.

The people emphasized that come 2019, ” any political party that fails to field an Oke-Ogun indigene shall not be welcome anywhere in Oke-Ogun.”, saying,  “this is an important message we are passing to the executive councils of the political parties that will be fielding candidates for the 2019 gubernatorial election in Oyo state. Oke Ogun has paid her dues in all existing political platforms to which its indigenes belong.”
