Oyo West LG Chairmanship Aspirant, Barr. Adebiyi Aderemi Abayomi, a.k.a. Santos, has congratulated Honorables Abdulrahman Olorunpoto, Gbenga Oyekola, and Deji Oparinde, describing them as a blessing to Oyo Federal Constituency.
In a statement personally signed on Wednesday and made available to journalists in Ibadan, Santos noted that the trio will, no doubt, make a good representation of the Constituency.
Adding, he said the elected members will toe the path of pragmatic leadership style of His Excellency, Engr. Seyi Makinde, in delivering good governance to the people.
He equally acknowledged the efforts of leaders of the party in the constituency in managing various political interests during the primaries, saying “it has brought about the result being celebrated today.”
While saying that the PDP, in the Constituency, has never had it good in a long time, he thanked God for giving the stakeholders of the party victory at the poll.
Santos, who wished the newly elected members of the State House of Assembly a successful tenure in office, noted that he would be willing to support them if called upon.
The statement read in part:
“It is with immense joy that I congratulate Honnorables Abdulrahman Olorunpoto, Gbenga Oyekola, and Deji Oparinde, today because I see them as blessing to Oyo Federal Constituency.
“There is no doubt that the PDP in Oyo federal constituency has never had it this good in a long time, and we can only thank God Almighty who gave us victory at the poll.
“Across the state constituencies, we can boast of having good representation across the board and this is attributable to the pragmatic leadership style of His Excellency Engr. Seyi Makinde and the efforts of our leaders in managing various political interests during the primaries which has brought about the result we are all celebrating today.
“Both Hon. Poto and Hon Oyekola have shown leadership even before their inauguration by taking it upon themselves to renovate the former rent court building at Oke Ebo to a befitting standard to accommodate the Grade A customary court after a long period of abandonment, thereby preventing permanent relocation of the court to Iroko town which would have been a slap on us as a people.
“The laudable efforts of Prince Deji Oparinde in terms of human capital development in Afijio LGA even before his inauguration is also commendable.
“The above points to the fact that we have a team ready to swing into action and I have no doubt that they’ll do well for our people because this time around, we can boast that we have competent men representing Oyo Federal Constituency at the state house of Assembly.
“No doubt, our stolen mandate will be restored and we’ll replicate the representation at the Federal level.
“I wish them a successful stay in office and in the same vein pledge my unflinching support. May God ease your tasks.”
