THE National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) , Keffi Local Government Chapter, has urged the people of Ogbomosho South Constituency in Oyo State, to vote massively for Ayodeji Adegoke, APC State Assembly candidate on Saturday.
Alhaji Mohammed Idris, Chairman of the council, who made the call in a statement, on Thursday in Keffi, said Ayodeji was the most competent and deserving candidate among all the candidates vying for the seat.
Idris said that it was time for the people of constituency to reciprocate the contributions of Ayodeji’s father, Dr Adewale Adegoke-Maigida, a philanthropist, to the development of the area by voting massively for his son.
The youth leader stated that it was on record that Adegoke-Maigida devoted all his energy and resources to empowering the people of Ogbomosho South throughout his career in public service.
According to him, there is no any other time better than now for the people to show solidarity to Adegoke-Maigida’s family by giving their block votes to his son.
Idris said: “Dr Adegoke-Maigida popularly known as Maigida, had in the past touched many lives through his Charity Foundation by taking care of people, both the privileged and underprivileged, within and outside Ogbomoso.
“And by extension to the Northern parts of the country where he works. During the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, he distributed palliatives in Ogbomoso to reduce the untold hardship occasioned by it.
“The distribution of the palliatives in Ogbomoso brought unprecedented joy to the less privileged who said it was not only timely, but also effective.
”The palliatives were also extended to those providing essential services such as the Police, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Federal Road Safety Corps, State Security Service and media establishments.
“In the light of aforementioned, therefore, Ayodeji deserves to be elected by the people of Ogbomosho South because of the antecedents of his father.”
The youth leader said that it was gratifying that Ayodeji had emulated his father in the area of youths empowerment and provision of basic social amenities such as boreholes to communities in the area, (NAN)
