    By Deborah Oladejo, Osogbo 

    Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, and Ogunsua of Modakeke, Oba Moses Oladejo Oyediran, have lauded Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of Osun State for keeping to his electoral promises despite the inherent socio-economic realities.

    The two traditional rulers also threw their weights behind the governor, saying they have no reason not to support his ambition for second term as he has made them, the people of the state and particularly their subjects proud through his people-oriented policies and programmes that have impacted positively on the lives of the masses.

    This is even as Governor Oyetola declared that the APC in the state was ready for whatever mode that might be adopted by the National Secretariat of the party, Abuja, for the conduct of the governorship primaries come February 19th, this year.

    Oyetola had on Monday formally received his nomination form earlier purchased for him by his associates to contest for second term.

    Speaking in his palace, on Wednesday, Ooni applauded Oyetola for walking his talk and for his faithfulness to his electoral promises.

    Oba Ogunwusi, who was represented by Obalufe of Ile-Ife, Oba Idowu Adediwura, said the Oduduwa kingdom was solidly behind the governor.

    He appreciated the good works the governor has been doing to transform the state since his assumption of office, just as he expressed confidence that the people of the state would reciprocate his gesture by returning him for a second term.

    The foremost traditional ruler who appealed to the governor not to be deterred or distracted called on him to continue his good works.

    He identified some intra-city roads that needed urgent intervention, saying fixing those roads would help to complement the ongoing and already- completed infrastructure in the ancient town.

    While speaking, Oyetola said he was in Ile Ife to seek the blessings of his royal father in his second-term ambition.

    “We can’t joke with Ife in the scheme of things. We are very committed to ensuring all-round development in Ile-Ife and its environs. What actually brought us here is to seek for your permission and blessings before we go to the field to address our party loyalists.

    “I am very happy that our party is united for APC in Ife. I am glad that Senator Omisore is with us. We commend you for your steadfastness, love and loyalty to our party. We can assure you of more developments,” he said.

    Ogunsua of Modakeke, Oba Moses Oladejo Oyediran, assured the governor of maximum support and cooperation, saying the entire Modakeke town would stop at nothing to re-elect him.

    The monarch who showered royal blessings on the governor and his entourage said his subjects are pleased with him and are committed to progressive cause because of his prompt and timely socioeconomic interventions aimed at changing the face of the town.

    While addressing the mammoth crowd of the party’s supporters in Modakeke and Ile-Ife, Governor Oyetola said that the large turnout of the people was an indication that Ife was for progressive government.

    He expressed delight at the warm reception accorded him and his entourage by the people of the communities, saying their love for his government has once again been displayed.

    Oyetola who declared the party’s readiness for any mode of primary that might be introduced by the National Secretariat of the party said, “Be it direct, indirect or consensus, we are ready, our party is ready.”

    He called on the party’s loyalists to remain united and formidable as the governorship primaries and election were fast approaching.

    The governor assured Ife people of total completion of the ongoing roads construction projects and other infrastructure in the town and said his government would leave no stone unturned in continuously putting smile on the faces of the citizenry.

    Former Deputy Governor of the state, Senator Christopher Iyiola Omisore  retired Permanent Secretary, Mr. Fatai Kolawole, among other notable indigenes of Ife Federal Constituency took turn to appreciate Governor Oyetola for his good works.
