A pro-democracy group, Royal Peoples Platform (RPP), has expressed optimism that, with Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu as the chairman of the Ondo State governorship Campaign Committee, the state is good as delivered to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The group made its observation known in a statement from its Convener, Prince Dare Aladekoba, to worldtopnewsng.com who said, “we members of this Platform are excited when Governor Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State was appointed as the Chairman of the governorship election committee because of our confidence in his ability to deliver.”
Aladekoba said, “our confidence and optimism was borne out of Sanwo-Olu’s performance in his first year in office in Lagos, which is a mini-Nigeria,” adding that, “the highly enlightened people of Ondo State would respect Sanwo-Olu and believe whatever he tells them during the electioneering.”
Waxing philosophical, the youth leader, who stressed that, “a known devil is far better than an unknown angel,” however said that, the interesting aspect of the matter is that, “Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu is never a devil but a known, tested and trusted angel,” reminding that, “the need for continuity of good deeds cannot be overemphasised.”
Sanwo-Olu, Aladekoba continued, is a political mathematician who is capable of solving electoral equations with precision, assuring that, “with him and his team on the campaign rostrum, Ondo State is as good as back into the APC kitty.”
The excited RPP boss further enthused that, aside from retaining the state, APC would also regain Edo State before moving further to recapture Oyo State, saying, “all the south-west states would be back into their normal habitat where they naturally belong through democratic means.”
While urging the people of Ondo State to troop out en masse to appreciate the oratory prowess of Sanwo-Olu and his team, the youthful activist, however, charged them to be orderly and peaceful, reminding them of the maturity, sophistry and gentleman disposition of the governor and his team.”
Nigerians, Aladekoba said, are expected to have grown beyond the act of hooliganism and brigandage during electioneering and elections, appealing that, “people should, therefore, exhibit the highest level of decorum because any act that can rupture the peace of the community would not do anyone any good.”
