Members of Ijesa North Leaders of Thought, a group of political and community leaders in Oriade and Obokun Local Government areas of Osun State, on Wednesday ,assured the people in the localities that their “interests would be better served and protected, if the flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Iyiola Omisore, wins the August 9 governorship election.” In a communique issued at the end of a meeting of the body held in Ilase, a town in Obokun Local Government Area, where issues affecting people of the communities in the constituency were discussed, the leaders of the group underscored the need for the people to vote massively for PDP. Reading the communique after the deliberations that also had in attendance religious leaders from all the towns in the federal constituency, Basorun Tayo Omojowogbe, said “the main reason for the meeting was to take a critical look at political and economic trend in the state with a view to forge a positive direction for our people”. He contended that “the development our two local government areas in the constituency witnessed while it had member of House of Representatives, commissioner and board members, who served the PDP, were unprecedented” declaring that the people of the area were absolutely ready to repay the party now. “The people had better story to tell under PDP and they have mandated us as their leaders to pledge their loyalty for the aspirations of Senator Omisore, who was instrumental to the success story of our people under PDP reign through many interventions”, Omojowogbe asserted. He continued, “to ensure we are carrying out the mandate of our people, that is why this group, formed several years ago to forge common front where economic and political interest of our people will be best protected, met today and decided to give bulk votes to PDP with the believe that the party will repay us when it forms government in November this year by God’s grace”. In his remark, the host of the meeting, Chief Francis Fadahunsi, lauded the group for being at “the vanguard of communal interest and wellbeing of their people”, adding that “specific needs of some communities in the area have been identified during the group’s tour”. He, therefore, assured that the group would work towards tirelessly in getting more communities connected to the national grid, saying that “members have resolved to shared the communities without electricity among themselves and get them electrified to make life more bearable for the people and discourage rural-urban migration”.
