A group, Akoko Consultative Forum(ACF) said it would support the former Minister and flag bearer of the Social Democratic Party(SDP), Dr Olu Agunloye in his governorship bid for theNovember 26 poll in Ondo state.
A statement by its Chairman, Chief Festus Obaude, Secretary, R.A Ajayi, and Welfare/Education Committee Chairman,Christopher Olorunfemi described Agunloye as an illustrious son of Akokoland who has the capacity to uplift the area and the whole state.
The Akoko group lamented that the people in the four local government areas of the state have been relegated to the background with lack of infrastructures to make life meaningful to the people.
ACF noted that the present government since inception in February 2009 has not made its impact felt in Akoko land especially on good road network, stable electricity and potable water supply.
It expressed optimism that with Agunloye’s passion for Akokoland, the former Chief Executive of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) would bring development to the communities in Akokoland and Ondo state as a whole.
According to the statement “we are determined individually to support Agunloye’s aspiration, although ACF is apolitical, but our members are conversant with the situation in Akoko land, we believe with our support and that of the people, the SDP candidate will emerge victorious in the coming election.
“We believe it is the turn of Akoko to produce the next governor,we are not happy that our people could not speak with one voice,the only alternative now is Agunloye and we will support him”.
The ACF said the people-oriented programmes of the SDP would bring development to the state, create wealth and employment for the people.
It urged the people of Akoko land to rally round the Erusu-Akoko politician and vote massively for his emergence as Governor in the state.
