Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, says he regrets his time as a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Mr. Amosun says he went astray when he joined the party.
The governor made this known while publicly announcing and introducing Nurudeen Diyaolu as the chairmanship candidate of Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) for Obafemi-Owode Local Government ahead of the forthcoming Saturday council polls.
“I must confess to you all that I have gone astray before and realising this error, I made a detour to join the progressive party ACN and thank God for making me realise this before it got too late,” he said.
The governor, who also used the occasion to present the party’s councillorship candidates at Siun in Owode town, called party members and voters to cast their votes for all the party flag bearers
“I want to call on you all members of our great party as well as other voters to ensure that your votes send the opponents into permanent coma in the forthcoming election in the state,” the governor said.
Mr. Amosun claimed that since the defeat of the PDP, peace has returned to all parts of the state; while charging ACN members to always exhibit peaceful behaviours.
“You can see the difference between us and PDP at this rally. If it was in their days, the guns and ammunitions at this venue would outnumber the people here. Let us continue to maintain peace,” he said.
In his own remark the party chairmanship candidate at the local government, Mr. Diyaolu, said he would implement the party’s cardinal programmes.
He also assured the teeming supporters that he would not disappoint them if he elected.
