We won’t all be here today if he has not performed very well. He was the one that paid for and furnished this our secretariat. He has also carried out a lot of developmental projects in our local government.
“Despite the fact that Small Alhaji got elected on the platform of a different political party, he has brought dividend of democracy to APC members in Ifedore. He has given cars and motorcycles to people that never thought they could own cars and motorcycles. He also came to my community in Ipogun and took over the construction of our police station.
“Small Alhaji has been able to strike a good balance in attracting equal developmental projects to Idanre and Ifedore. What else are we looking for again when we all know that this man has performed very very well. Small Alhaji deserve another term and we will give him our total support”.

“You will agree with me that Ifedore had served in the House of Representatives for 16 years since 1999 while Idanre has only served in the same position for less than 7 years. I want to appeal to you all for the sake of equity, to please allow Idanre to offer another four years quality representation”,said Adefisoye.
