“Ore ward is the largest in Odigbo local government with 30 polling units. We are committed, focused, strong, united and ready for the elections. We are very sure of our impact in any election.
“The campaign is to cement our strength in the units. I want to call on our leaders in Ore Ward and South Senatorial District of the state to support our moves to achieve our aims.
“The leaders should empower us more personally, I have not benefited but the interest of the party is key. They should engage the youth because we are the future of Nigeria”.
