Gov. Abiodun Assures Free and Fair LGA Elections

The Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun has promised that the upcoming LGA elections in the state would be free and fair.

He made this statement at Abeokuta during the breaking of the fast (Iftar) with the leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress in Abeokuta.

According to him, the elections will follow due process which would be the perfect way to demonstrate the real hallmark of democracy.

In his words: “The election will not be skewed in favour of the rullng APC.

“We will not share political positions among men and women who are party faithfuls during the elections, but promote equal participation.

“We must be consistent and show that we have learnt from other people’s lessons and that are a product of democracy.

“We have done primaries when somebody else did not want primaries and subjected ourselves to the party process and we evolved through that process which was later confirmed by the general elections despite all odds.

“Let us make sure that whatever process we adopt is democratic. We must be seen as true progressive democrats.

“When it comes to a process like this, what we need to do is to encourage our members to come forward and participate.

“We will vote for them, but we are not going to share it and say because they are our members, they should take it on platter of gold” he said.
