By Bukola Olamona
Ahead of the governorship election in Ondo State, youths under the auspices of the Aiyedatiwa Youths and Students’ Support Group have thrown their weight behind the governorship aspiration of the State Governor, Mr. Lucky Aiyedatiwa, saying he remains the best material in the election.
The convener of the group, Omotayo Olibamoyo, who stated this at the end of the group’s meeting held in Akure, said the managerial skills, technical know-how, and youth-friendly programmes put Aiyedatiwa in the best position to rule the state in 2025.
Olibamoyo said the group decided to drum up support for the aspirations of Aiyedatiwa in the forthcoming governorship election in the state.
Aiyedatiwa has shown his capacity to replicate and build on the achievements of the late Governor of the State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.
According to him, youths across the state, including student leaders, examined the past records of the governor as a youth-friendly leader whose credentials speak volumes.
Olibamoyo said, “Let me remind all of us that we have called this meeting to brainstorm on the state of our state, especially the aspiration of Mr. Lucky Aiyedatiwa, the Executive Governor of Ondo State.
“This meeting is necessary to enable us to share ideas and channel our energies towards the actualization of the aspiration of Aiyedatiwa ahead 2024 guber polls.
“Aiyedatiwa has proven beyond doubt that he’s a true leader of the people. Within this period, he has paid pension arrears to pensioners, ordered the payment of the 2017 salary arrear owed to civil servants in the state by past administration, ongoing completion of major road projects in the state, and illuminated cities and towns by installing street lights across the state.
Olibamoyo added that every right-thinking youth should give Aiyedatiwa the needed support to move Ondo State forward.
