Dapo Abiodun, 60, Governor of Ogun State, has disclosed that, it would be the people of the state that would decide if he would be going for a second term or not.
According to him, the Governor while answering a question on whether he would be going for a second term, he said that he would want to continue with the trust building relationship as well as continue in the relationship of promise keeping of noiseless performances.
Prince Abiodun stated this during an interactive section with Ogun Youth at Government Townhall Meeting, held at the June 12 Cultural Center, Kuto, Abeokuta.
He said “So to answer that question, I am just a year and a half old into this administration, let us continue with this relationship, this trust building relationship, let us continue in this relationship of promise keeping of noiseless performances, let our performances continue to speak for us, when that time comes, it is you that will tell me if I am going for second term or not.”
Delivering a speech themed: ‘Youth, Skills and Insecurity: Connections, Costs and Opportunities, he added that “ what the State would be having is an election and not a selection process”.
Prince Abiodun revealed to the people of the state that the much anticipated local government elections in the State would commence as soon as the State’s Electoral Commission is formed.
He told the youths who were already agitating for spots in the upcoming local government elections to leave all sorts of agitations and start preparing for the LG election.
Governor Abiodun advised the youths to show leadership by endearing themselves to their people and registering with political parties.
“The State government would soon begin the process for the election by constituting the Ogun State Independent Electoral Commission, which would be responsible for rolling out the calendar for the election. In the process of an election, you have to begin to participate, you have to come and register with a political party, you have to begin to campaign, you have to show leadership, you have to demonstrate you are responsible; a local government chairman is what they call a Mayor in America.
“It is a big position, you are the Governor of a local government, you also have your own cabinet, you will not become a local government chairman by just talking or by agitating, you have to sell yourself to your people, you have to endear yourself to their heart, so if you want to become a local government chairman, the time is now to begin to find your way to your local government and begin to endear yourself into the heart of the people.
“We will soon be constituting the Ogun State Electoral Commission, the commission has to be established first because they are the ones that will be conducting the local government elections and this will happen very soon, sooner than later and they will role out the timetable for the local government elections, so, I want to enjoin you to begin to work towards it.
