The group Chairman maintained that there is the need for the governor elect ” to start planning on how to make Iseyin and the entire Oke-Ogun region commercially viable, adding that the election victory of Governor elect Makinde has confirmed ” the people’s belief that ultimate power is reposed in the voting masses and only a humble and listening leaders deserved to enjoy their mandate.”
“The four years of the incoming administration should entail better deal for the people of Iseyin town as the people were eager to see all the roads leading to the ancient town from Ibadan, Oyo and Abeokuta, which also lead to the rest of Oke-Ogun region reconstructed.” he said.
Comrade Oluwatoyin added that the government of Engineer Seyi Makinde should make it a matter of urgency to locate a higher institution of learning in the town, saying, “Seyi’s victory at the polls is well deserving. We have seen all he has done for the masses even before he got our mandate. We congratulate him”.
“The core message here is to remind him of the reasons why we decided to follow him despite the power of the incumbent party and administration in the State, which is for him to as a matter of urgency embark on reconstruction of all roads leading to Iseyin which invariably lead to the rest of Oke-Ogun region. All these roads have totally collapsed and have cost our people precious lives and economic deprivation as you know that we are mostly agrarian here.”
Comrade Oluwatoyin said, “It is also important to state that Iseyin youths decided to abandon APC for deceiving us with promises of higher institution of learning throughout the Ajimobi’s eight year tenure. Engr. Seyi Makinde should please address this two important areas and we promise to keep supporting him and his party to have a smooth running administration.”
The Chairman then urged c other winners in the last election to be magnanimous in victory while admonishing the losers to embrace peace and support the winners to take the State to better height.
