As part of efforts to ensure that a Yewa indigene from Ogun west emerges as the next governor of Ogun state, aspirants in the area have reached a consensus to field and support a common governorship aspirant.
They have equally agreed to work in unity and with the unanimous resolve to achieve this feat in the forthcoming governorship election in 2019.
Chairman of the Ogun West Elders Council, Chief Ajibola Oagbayi made this known while addressing journalists after a meeting with Ogun state Governor, Ibikunle Amosun.
Olagbayi said the decision to support a common candidate was as a result of series of consultations with stakeholders and interested parties.
He noted that to this effect, governorship aspirants from Ogun West have collectively signed a pact and other indigenes and groups despite their initial lack of interest have maintained a similar stance for a common candidate.
While appreciating Amosun for supporting the Yewa agenda, Olagbayi said the Governor’s steadfastness was extremely instrumental in actualising the age long agenda of the council.
In the same vein, Mr. Dapo Oke, a representative of other concerned groups disclosed that interested groups including Ogun West Consultative Forum, Ogun West Collective and Ogun West Liberation Forum, amongst others have also reached an agreement to support the decision for a common candidate.
