Traditional rulers and leaders of thought in Yewaland have supported Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun’s second term ambition
The Yewa monarchs and the Olu of Ilaro, who is the paramount ruler of Yewaland, Oba Kehinde Olugbenle, said Governor Abiodun’s tenure had brought development to Yewaland and Ogun West Senatorial District.
Speaking on behalf of the 42 monarchs at the secretariat of the Yewa Traditional Council in Ilaro, Oba Olugbenle said the royal fathers unanimously opted for Governor Abiodun after they had told their subjects vying for the number one position to shelve their ambition.
The monarch, berating the decision of a governorship candidate from the axis to reject the advice of the council on the need to shelve his ambition, said his refusal was an embarrassment to the council
Oba Olugbenle, however, said the royal fathers were not perturbed by the candidate’s rude behaviour, rather, they were solidly behind Governor Abiodun, who he described as “a man of his words”.
“Since you became governor, we have seen tremendous changes and development in the state of our infrastructure in Yewaland. You are a man of your words. What you promised to do, you have done. Your success at the polls in 2023 is a done deal. We are with you,” he said.
