Youths and indigenes in Ogo-Oluwa local government area in Oyo state have handed over the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chairmanship nomination form to Hon. Adejare Silas Afolabi, one of the aspirants in the next election.

Our correspondent reports that the local government election has been fixed for next year in the state.

Some youths and indigenes of the local government area have purchased the nomination form for the aspirant.

Our correspondent gathered that Afolabi is the supervisory councilor for mobilization and intergovernmental affairs in the local government area.

The presentation was done at Arowomole Peere in ward nine on Friday.

A former Chairman of the local government, Hon. Sanjo Akintola, while presenting the form to the Afolabi, declared the form represented hope for the council area noting by that he had shown he is a man of valour.

He said, “Until yesterday evening I regarded you Olaogo as a bulldog with a set of teeth which cannot bite but when the youth and elders of the council area came to my residence yesterday and showed me the chairmanship form they bought for you I was amazed.

“I was happy. I saw in the form the restoration of hope for Ogo-Oluwa. Olaogo represents sprouting of a good seed in Ogo-Oluwa and it is bound to grow”.

Another speaker, a woman, lamented that her area has never benefitted from the local government area.

Afolabi in his remarks, expressed gratitude to the people of the local government for the support particularly the youth who bought the form for him.

He said, “This form is about N1.3million, I will not disappoint you. Thanks everyone. The step we took today will be fruitful.

“I was appointed in December as supervisory councilor for mobilization and intergovernmental affairs but by April he ordered my salary and other entitlements to be stopped.

“He promotes thuggery. We must brace up to get rid of him. Under my administration, no ward will be neglected”
