A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Ondo State and former member of the House of Representatives for Okitipupa/Irele Federal Constituency, Hon. Mike Adeniyi Omogbehin, has declared total support for Hon. Agboola Ajayi, candidate of the Zenith Labour Party for the October 10 governorship elections.
Omogbehin lampooned critics questioning educational credentials of Ajayi saying that he was present at the call to bar ceremony of Ajayi.
He said he has no reason to doubt his ability of Ajayi manage affairs of Ondo State successfully.
The former lawmaker said his support for Ajayi was because he (Ajayi) has been grossly underrated, undermined, humiliated and viciously persecuted.
According to him, “I love underdogs. He shared in my philosophy. There is joy in little beginning.
“I’m supporting Agboola Ajayi because he’s the only one visible on the ballot from my oppressed southern senatorial district of Ondo State. Evidence abounds that occupants of the gubernatorial office tend to develop their district far more than other senatorial districts. It has apparently become a turn by turn phenomenon. It’s, therefore, the turn of Ondo South
“I do not subscribe to the beliefs of the proponents of “wait for the next 4 years to take our 8 years”. It’s a defeatist and wicked proposition borne out of their dislike and hatred for this humble and amiable gentleman from Apoi land. Let Agboola too try his luck, let him take his turn, win or lose.
“I do not know what informed the belief that it would be the turn of the southern senatorial district after Akeredolu. What makes it so sacrosanct? So, if Southern senatorial district people can contest in every gubernatorial election in Ondo State since 1999, other qualified and interested people from the rest senatorial districts are daft or hypnotised to give us a free ride come 2023?”
