Local Government Poll: I Will Not Select Chairmen, Says Governor Abiodun by OriginalOmoOgun(f): 8:58pm On Apr 12
The Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has assured that the next council chairmen in the state would not be appointed, but democratically elected by the people, just as he also pledged that the forthcoming poll will be free and fair

Penpushing reports that Abiodun made this known at an event held in Abeokuta to welcome new members into the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), and urged the new entrants to continue to work hard towards the continued development of the party and the state.

“Very soon, the time table for the election will be released, we will not appoint chairmen for you at all, chairmanship will not be by appointment, it will be by election, everyone should continue to work hard,,” he said.

The Governor emphasised that his administration would continue to adopt the bottom-up approach which gives the people the power to choose projects that directly affects them, adding that in the next 60 days he would commission the Sagamu-Abeokuta expressway, alongside other projects in the month of May.



Penpushing further reports that, Abiodun added that his administration will continue to give the state capital all the attention it deserves, stating that his administration will ensure that the people get all the attention they deserve.

“This is your government that is the reason why we ask from you before we embark on any project. We call it the bottom-up approach, where we ask the Local Government Chairman, House of Assembly members, our Kings, the Community Development Council and the Community Development Associations to be part of any decision on projects rehabilitation and reconstruction’.

“All the roads we have done so far came through our bottom-up approach, by the grace of God, in the next 60 days; we will complete the Sagamu-Abeokuta expressway..Abeokuta is the capital city of the Gateway state and it must continue to be presented like a capital city, we will do everything to ensure that the city of Abeokuta is a befitting capital city in the comity of capital cities in the country,” he said.

The Governor while welcoming the new members into the All Progressives Congress(APC), urged them to work together with the party in the business of making the party and the state an envy of all.



Penpushing also reports that, earlier in their remarks, Hon. Adekunle Adesina and Chief Bode Mustapha charged party faithful to continue to support the state government and the party, urged party members not to see the new members as their enemies, but to see them as partners in progress.

The State Caretaker Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Yemi Sanusi, while noting that the administration of Abiodun would be the first administration in the state to accommodate between 75 to 80% of politicians in the same party, added that the party is big enough to accommodate as many progressive minded politicians as possible

Penpushing reports that, in their remarks, the new members which include, former Director General of Governorship campaign team of late Buruji Kasamu, Aare Remilekun Bakare and former Commissioner for Special Duties during the administration of Otunba Gbenga Daniel, Chief Kola Sorinola noted that their coming into the party would bring in more members into the party in the state.

Meanwhile, the two party chieftains said that all what the party needs at a time it is receiving more members is good management, which Governor Abiodun is capable of providing.

Why can’t INEC organize local government polls too? I feel it’ll be more democratic if they get to be local government polls during the general elections every four years. All these ones states are conducting are rubbish and nonsense

Very hilarious...who doesn't know that LG elections in Nigeria are simply another platform Govs use to dish out political appointments to their loyalists. grin grin

And they keep shouting LG autonomy upandan...nothing changes about our moribund LG areas until INEC starts conducting LG elections, and the FG starts paying directly into LG accounts. Govs just feed fat on those allocations.

No sir they will only select and give you to endorse.

Please which state do you know that they have fair local government polls?

Most states have sweeping results at the polls

How can all LGAs just vote the same party the governor belongs to

What kind of coincidence is that

See Kano with over 40 LGAs... all APC or Enugu all PDP
