Senator Olufemi Lanlehin, Oyo State ADC governorship candidate, has assured Oyo State residents, that in yet a little while, they’ll begin experiencing a new lease of life.
Lanlehin made this remark at his campaign tour of Ibadan Southeast/Northeast local governments, which began at Adelabu Market, Orita Challenge, and which was attended by ADC chieftains like Amb Taofeek Arapaja, Senator Gbenga Babalola, Hon Wale Adegoke and Barrister Lowo Obisesan. Others included Hon Dapo Lam Adesina, Member representing Ibadan Northeast/Southeast Federal Constituency, Hon Fatai Adesina and Hon Akeem Ige, Members representing Ibadan Southeast Constituencies I and II respectively.
Lanlehin, who promised traders in the market of a business friendly environment, told them that, “once we assume office, your businesses will receive every possible support to thrive.”
He later solicited electoral support for Hon Ige, Adesina, Lam Adesina, and Senator Soji Akanbi as Oyo South Senatorial District Senator.
Speaking later at Iso Adiye, Molete, Lanlehin told the excited poultry traders that the need to leave a lasting legacy, improve the lives of the people, and become a reference point for service delivery are the reasons for his governorship bid. Recounting how he attempted providing water for use in the market, and was stopped by the ruling party, Lanlehin promised them that “once we assume power by the grace of God, and your support, your welfare will be of utmost importance.” Lanlehin said.
The obviously elated sellers praised Lanlehin for his people centred approach to governance, and for always prioritising the welfare of the people. They then promised him their unflinching support.
The campaign train later visited the Felele residence of former Oyo State governor, Alh Lam Adesina, where prayers were held for a successful outing in the coming 2019 governorship poll.
After leaving Lam Adesina’s Felele residence, the train moved through Molete to Kudeti, Oke Oluokun, Odo Oba, Odinjo and environs.
A dramatic twist played out at Odo Oba, when Lanlehin’s team came in contact with an ongoing naming ceremony of a set of twins.
The obviously elated Lanlehin stopped his convoy to exchange felicitations with the new born babies and their parents.
“These babies have been born at a very good period in our history. This is because by the time they’ll start schooling, they’ll be attending free schools,” Lanlehin assured.
In fulfilment of traditional rites at naming ceremonies, Lanlehin donated an undisclosed amount of money to the new born babies.
Commissioning a borehole project provided for the people of the area by Hon Akeem Ige later on, Lanlehin lauded the lawmaker for his efforts at delivering democratic dividends to his people, saying “our party is full of achievers like Hon Ige, and that’s what makes the difference.”
The campaign train would later move to Ibadan Northeast local government, where Lanlehin promised life more abundant for the people.
