President Jonathan on Thursday continued his strategic moves to win the South-west votes with a visit to the Awujale of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona.

Awujale is the head of traditional rulers in Ijebuland, one of the major provinces in Ogun State, the stronghold of opposition All Progressives Congress.

The visits had earlier taken him to the Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade; Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamide Adeyemi; Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba Oyewumi Ajagungbade, and the Owa Obokun of Ijeshaland, Oba Adekunle Aromolaran.

At the palace of Awujale, President Jonathan said four years were not enough for him to complete the work he started.

The president also promised to implement the report of the recently-concluded constitutional conference in Abuja, a sing-song of his men in the South-west to woo voters

He was accompanied on the visit by Ondo State Governor Olusegun Mimiko, Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State, former Ogun State governor Gbenga Daniel and defeated Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore among others.

Speaking, the Awujale said he was not in the habit of endorsing candidates, but he wished the president well.

He said his role as a traditional ruler was to help in creating the enabling environment for the people to freely choose whoever they want to govern them.

During the visit, President Jonathan was dressed in the Ijebu traditional regalia, signalling the birth of a relationship between him and Ijebuland.
