”Egbe Elesin Funfun”, the Social Democratic Party (SDP) candidate, Dr. Olu Agunloye Wednesday had a triumphant entry into Ondo kingdom amidst teaming party supporters and Market Women who throned the Akure garage to receive their Governor as early as 10 am.
No sooner that Dr. Agunloye alighted from his vehicle that he joined his teaming supporters and embarked on a rally that took the entourage through major streets of Ondo town.
It was indeed a new innovation in politics as the campaign train of the SDP reached out to people one on one canvassing for people’s support and their votes from house to house and shop to shop.
The journey from Akure garage that ordinarily could had taken ten minutes drive to the palace of Osemawe took Dr. Agunloye, his Deputy, Erelu Modupe Akindele Martins and the entire SDP faith fulls two hours.
Commercial activities were how ever paralysed along Yaba street and other routes that led to the palace as people trooped out to have a glimpse of the next Governor of Ondo state.
Commercial cyclists were not left out as they added glamour and beauty to the mission of the SDP in Ondo kingdom even as those that offer to speak with our reporter showered encomiums on Dr. Agunloye going by his pedigree when he was Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Others how ever recalled vividly how he pioneered the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) successfully, saying it was no nonsense in the days of Agunloye in the FRSC unlike today when corruption has eaten deep into all sectors.
At the palace of Osemawe, Oba Victor Adesimbo Kiladejo, the Osemawe of Ondo kingdom, Dr. Agunloye recalled how he had successfully followed the former Governor, Dr. Olusegun Agagu and the incumbent Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko on campaign to the palace and they all succeeded.
”Now that I follow myself here, it shows that it is my turn to be Governor of Ondo state by November 26, 2016 when the people give me their mandate with their votes”, Agunloye assured.
He disclosed that his administration shall team up with leaders in every community to develop the people and their communities by inviting foreign investors to establish industries to create jobs and improve the economy.
Oba kiladejo how ever commended Dr. Agunloye for not destroying co contestants but rather telling the people what he has for them as a man of integrity which he is known for over the years.
