As preparations for the Ondo 2024 governorship election begin to gather momentum, some youths in the state have thrown their weight behind the Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, to emerge as the standard bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The youths, at the end of their meeting held in Akure at the weekend, headed by Omotayo Olibamoyo, the Convener of ‘Aiyedatiwa Youths and Students’ Support Group’, said they are drumming support for the aspiration of Governor Aiyedatiwa in the forthcoming governorship election in the state.
The meeting, which had in attendance notable youths and student leaders across the state was an avenue for the attendees to X-ray the antecedents of the governor as a youth-friendly leader whose credentials speaks volumes.
Olibamoyo said; “Let me remind all of us that we have called this meeting to brainstorm on the state of our state, especially the aspiration of Hon Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa, the Executive Governor of Ondo State.
“This meeting is necessary, to enable us share ideas and channel our energies toward the actualisation of the aspiration of Hon Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa come 2024 Guber polls.
“Aiyedatiwa has proven beyond doubt that he’s a true leader of the people. Within this period, he has paid pension arrears to pensioners, ordered the payment of 2017 salary owed Civil Servants in the state, ongoing completion of major road projects in the state and illumination of cities and towns by installing street lights across the state.
“Worthy of mention is the attempt to address the Ocean surge challenge facing the people of Ayetoro, a community in the Southern part of the state.
“These, and many more, are enough to give him the needed support to continue in office after February 2025.”
Olibamoyo rallied the youths to give Aiyedatiwa the needed support to move Ondo state forward.
