Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola has urged members of the ruling All Progressives Congress to embark on visitations to citizens’ homes to remind them of his administration’s achievements ahead of the July 16 governorship election in the state.
The governor also urged the electorate not to fall for the antics of the opposition parties, whom he said are out to distract them ahead of the poll.
Oyetola said this during an engagement programme organised by the State’s Civic Engagement Centre for Osun State Conference of Artists Designers, House and Spraying Painter, on Sunday in Osogbo.
Represented by his Special Adviser on Civic Engagement, Olatunbosun Oyintiloye, the governor also urged APC members as well as the electorate to remain focused on the task of his reelection bid.
Oyetola, who noted that APC is still intact and indivisible in Osun, urged them not to be agitated, but to remain resolute, unflinching and committed to the task ahead, noting that the mission is achievable and accomplishable.
The governor reiterated the need for party members to continue to educate the populace for stability, sustainability and continuity of his people-oriented style of governance.
He said, “As the election is approaching we tasked all our members at all levels to employ door-to-door strategy to remind the electorate why our administration should be given a second chance to complete its developmental agenda for the state.
“Osun APC is strong and indivisible. I want to appeal to our members as well as the electorate not to be deceived or distracted by lies and deceit made by opposition parties.
“You have seen and witnessed a lot of positive impacts and achievements we had made since the inception of our administration and you can rest assured of better things to come when we are reelected.”
Oyetola, who noted that the opposition would soon engage in a campaign of calumny with fake promises, urged the electorate to be firm in their determination to ensure continuity.
The governor, however, commended members of the association for their support, adding that his administration will continue to provide a friendly environment for businesses to thrive.
