Dimeji Bankole, former speaker of the House Representative, has revealed that the Action Democratic Party, ADP, will unseat the Ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, in the next year’s elections in Ogun State.
Bankole, who is the governorship candidate of the ADP, in the state, spoke on Monday at the the party’s secretariat in Abeokuta, the state capital, shortly after he was officially unveiled as the flag-bearer of the party by the State Chairman, Chief Wale Egunleti.
The former lawmaker vowed to pursue vigorously, mass employment, which is the motor of the party, if elected as the governor in 2019.
The former Speaker said “the economic complexities of Ogun is not difficult”, adding that the opposition party places priority on competence and credibility.
“I am grateful to this massive structure you have built in the last six years especially in the last two years. I promise that I will not, in any capacity, play with the ticket that you have given.” he added.
“Also speaking on behalf of all other candidates, I want to tell that come February and March 2019, we will deliver.
“I am speaking with all confidence in the work that you have done in the last two years, and still doing, most of it covertly. We are in for a shot at the seat in this state. We are dependent on God and the work that we have done and still doing especially at grassroots level.
“We’re willing to work. I therefore call on all of us to join hands with our party in Ogun State to tell the whole world that there is different way of doing politics, to tell the whole world that we are united and that competence and credibility is the choice of ADP. We are sure that the people of Ogun State will follow us.”
