Ogun 2019: 45-years-old Omoniyi Joins Guber Race


By Kolawole Olayinka, Abeokuta
Young Adewale Omoniyi, former Personal Assistant to ex-Ogun State Deputy Governor in Ogun State, Alhaja Salmot Makanjuola Badru, has thrown his hat into the ring for the governorship of the state come 2019.

Omoniyi told newsmen in Ilaro during a media chat held at Dolad Hotel, Upper Leslie, Ilaro that he was in the governorship race for good.
He spoke about his plans for the people of Ogun state and for Yewaland.
Omoniyi was born 45 years ago to Omoniyi family of Ilaro, Yewa South Local Government Area of the state. He attended Local Government Primary School, Ilaro and Anglican Grammar School, Ilaro and finished at Egbado College, now Yewa college Ilaro.
He later went to Yaba College of Technology and at present doing his Master degree programme at the Lagos State University where he is studying Statistics.
A technocrat and former member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Omoniyi had the the opportunity to serve the state by working in Otunba Gbenga Daniel-led government as a Personal Assistant to the former deputy governor Alhaja Badru between 2003 to 2007.
After he left office as personal assistant, Omoniyi traveled abroad to gather more experience. He returned to the country to work in some top organisation as a statistician.
Omoniyi lamented that Nigerian leaders were not after the future of the young ones and failed to advance youths involvement in Nigeria politics. He said for instance that the United Kingdom’s transportation system is been managed by a 32-years-old boy.
The governorship aspirant expressed worry over how the state’s finance and economy were being managed, saying on paper, Ogun State was doing brilliantly well, but in reality the reverse is the case.
He said Ogun was being run in a way that shows the government is not sustainable, adding that this has to stop. Omoniyi also complained about the huge debt profile of the state and that infrastructural projects were being concentrated in one senatorial district.
