City Businessman and cosmopolitan socialite who is also the convener of Moreklue All Youths Award MAYA has made an announcement to drop his bid to represent the Good people of Ibadan South West State Constituency 2 at the chambers in 2023 under the platform of the All Progressive Congress APC. In a statement made available by his media and strategy office confirmed this new development stating the party’s decisions come first other than his ambition. the statement reads; 

“Entering the contest to run and represent the great and forward-thinking people of Ibadan South West State Constituency 2 has been a long nursed ambition for me. I have hoped to represent this constituency since 2015 and I’m glad we did eventually make a move in 2021 that has made “ATA, A-T-A, ATAwa ATAwon, Eyan ATATA” popular lines in the daily lives of thousands of people within and beyond the country.

However, after a series of consultations and reflections on current developments in the political scene, especially in Ibadan South West LGA, I, Oloye Ademola Titilopemi Ajibola will be stepping down of this race. In a moment like this, it stays a tough decision for me, but in the present circumstances, it is the best thing in my judgement to do for my party’s cohesion and allow for peace within and beyond my state constituency.

The last 7 days for me has been a painful, hectic and stressful movement as I have broadly consulted with my dependable family members, party excos and leaders within and beyond Ibadan South West LGA, change-demanding constituents, unbending supporters across and beyond Nigeria and well-wishers all over, to INFORM and subsequently ANNOUNCE MY WITHDRAWAL from the contest as the lawmaker to represent Ibadan South West State Constituency 2.

RETREATING is not out of the lack of will to fight for our resolve and collective aspiration for a more developed, enabled and empowered constituency but many times WILL and RESOLVE aren’t war winners.

I hope, pray and believe STRONGLY that our indivisible party, ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS will find and allow a candidate for the 2023 Oyo guber election that will unite, develop and activate the true pacesetter status our dear Oyo State, should be operating on.

However, I WILL NOT STOP doing all that which I have been known for overtime. The #ATAjere project, which is our market women financial support scheme, will be held in JULY as previously planned. Furthermore, the 2nd edition of the ADEMOLA T. AJIBOLA DEBATE COMPETITION will equally be executed in JULY with 25 secondary schools, participating.

I remain a committed member of the APC and my support will be given 1000% to whoever emerges as our party candidate in the general elections from the state, federal, senatorial and gubernatorial elections.

My constituents, political associates and supporters across and beyond the country are by this statement informed of this latest decision, which also has the blessing and support of the overwhelming majority, hence supersedes any other interest, personal or otherwise”.

Prince Adewole Adebayo, the Social Democratic Party SDP standard bearer in the 2023 general elections said there is nothing mystical about Nigeria and her leadership except that Nigerian leadership have not allowed the fear of God to dwell in it. He said the continuous spate of insecurity in the country showed the insensitive nature of the country’s leadership.

 

The presidential hopeful was bearing his mind yesterday when he, his running mate, party executives and supporters visited the president of Christain Association of Nigeria, CAN, Reverend Samson Ayokunle over insecurity in the land, among other national issues.

 

The Federal Ministry of Education few days ago ordered the immediate closure of the Federal Government College, Kwali, in the federal capital territory (FCT) over security threats.

Security breach of security in communities around the school is attributed for the closure.

For the Prince of Ondo Kingdom, “Before the schools were shut down, the first thing that was shut down was the presidency. The presidency has been shut down for the past seven years. The government has shut itself down. If we are not careful, the government will be the bandits and the bandits will be arresting the government. We need to be serious and the do the work. We need our people in security to pay attention, we need the president to protect us and be the Commander in Chief”.

He said until there is honest and purposeful leadership ,the country might just still continue grappling with almost the challenges it is presently facing, adding that only the person with capacity and capability can bring the country out of the woods. ” All the problems the latest of which is banditry, our debt servicing is bigger than our income is all arising from the deficit of our dishonesty that we are not honest people, that when we are given authority to exercise, we don’t do it honestly. If we change our ways, God’s blessing will be upon us. There is no mystery about leadership in Nigeria. It is just that the right leader must come with the right heart, with the right people”, he stated.

For Reverend Ayokunle, there is need to elect the right leader who will make Nigeria work better.
“There is need to elect the right person who will make Nigeria work better and transform its fortunes for the benefit of all. We need as many people as God has touched to contest for the presidency so that people have ample opportunities to chose from”.

… assures all of Victory at the Polls Come 2023

A chieftain in the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, Segun Adewale aka Aeroland, has clinched the ticket in the just concluded primaries to bear the flag of the PDP for the Lagos West Senatorial Seat in the coming elections. The elated philanthropist and politician in his victory and appreciation speech, laid emphasis on the need for all members and well-wishers of the Party to rally round and ensure victory at the general election come 2023.

The speech reads;

Hi, My name is Segun Adewale, people call me ‘Aeroland’. I just won the Lagos West Senatorial District’s Peoples’ Democratic Party primaries.

 

I would like to first and foremost appreciate the National Working Committee of our great party which has selected, recruited and deployed professionals to conduct the just concluded Senatorial Primaries in Lagos State. I would also like to appreciate the delegates for the enormous privilege and honor reposed in me by conducting themselves well and casting their votes diligently, you have my utmost respect.

I’m grateful to the leaders of our Party, who found me worthy to be presented to the delegates after a thorough screening exercise.

We have come a long way in choosing and putting our best foot forward in this race. Our focus has always been people-driven, our goal and objective are to serve with dignity and ensure better living for the common man. These I have always shown in my character and deeds in times past and won’t stop now.

According to Napoleon Hill, ” Victory is always possible for the person who refuses to stop fighting”. It is a known fact that I have contested the seat of the Senate twice before now and I am doing so again. I have learned my lessons and believe it is high time we win the seat back for the people.

The job has just begun and this time we will do a lot of things differently and by God’s grace at the polls we will obtain victory, not just for me or the Party, but for all residents of Lagos West Senatorial District who yearn for a wind of change daily.

I want all party members to know that this victory at the primaries , is a victory for all. This simply implies that the challenges ahead will be overcome if we continue to stand united.

The battle is half won and there is still a lot of work to be done. Let’s keep up the enthusiasm, encourage more people to get their PVCs and ensure we all come out en mass to support Aeroland and in general, all PDP candidates come year 2023.

No victor… No vanquished

Thank you and God bless.
