The Allied People’s Movement (APM) in Ogun State, on Tuesday, inaugurated a 300-man state campaign committee to ensure its victory at the polls in 2019.
This was disclosed by the Director General of the party’s campaign council, Alhaji Sarafa Tunji Ishola, during the inauguration of the party secretariat and constitution of committees at the state and local government levels.
Ishola said the Council had the mandate to ensure that its flagbearer, Hon. Adekunle Akinlade emerged as the successor of the incumbent, Senator Ibikunle Amosun.
The former Minister of Mines and Steel Development urged the committees at the local government level to equally inaugurate committees such as polling booths committee and elders council.
“The foundation of our politics is justice and equity. Our goal is service to the good people of Ogun State. However, this service cannot be achieved if it is built on the shaky foundation of injustice and inequity.
“This recent history of Ogun State has defined our tasks in the 2019 gubernatorial election. We have a historic role to prevent the hijack of the aspirations of the people of Ogun State.
“The resources and potentials of Ogun State should be explored in the service of the people of Ogun State. This is our brief for the 2019 elections.
“We have a duty to deliver Hon Adekunle Akinlade as the next governor of Ogun State. He has been tested and found capable of sustaining the Mission to Rebuild Ogun State which started in 2011 under governor Ibikunle Amosun,” Isola said.
