A group, SIA 4 BOT Mandate Forum, has said the Governorship Candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Barrister Biyi Otegbeye will be fair and just to all if elected governor of the state.
The group which was formerly known as President Ibikunle Amosun PIA Mandate Forum disclosed this at a meeting conveyed by Prince Adesegun Ogungbayi, the National Administrative Secretary in Abeokuta, the state capital.
Speaking at the event, Prince Ogungbayi said; “we have resolved to spend all what we have on mobilization for Barrister Biyi Otegbeye, we have gathered all our members in the defunct PIA MANDATE into what we call SIA 4 BOT MANDATE FORUM to support Barrister Biyi Otegbeye who was unjustly disallowed and humiliated by the incumbent Governor of Ogun State from contesting in line with electoral process for Governorship seat in APC. Apart from that Barrister Otegbeye is the only candidate from Ogun West Senatorial District (Yewa – Awori). The district that have not ruled Ogun State for over fourty (40) years of the existence of the state there by leaving the areas underdeveloped. The man we have been striving and mobilizing for is a legal icon that will be just to all citizens despite representing Ogun West. He is a global insurer that I am very sure will ensure Ogun state development from all the problems the incumbent administration has created in the state. I equally trust his managerial acumen as a first class administrator of scarce resources to be able to turn Ogun State to a world class city within his first term in office. My people I don’t have a doubt that our flag off and resolutions today is going to be historical when the results of our collective stand becomes a reality in 2023”.
