•••APC candidate says Oyetola is coming back
The football contest organised by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress for Irepodun/Olorunda/Orolu/Osogbo Federal Constituency, Hon. Abosede Kasumu Ogo-Oluwa has come to an end amidst kudos and praises to the organiser.
The contest, which started last year with 40 teams, was climaxed on Sunday at the playing ground of Ifon-Erin Community High School in Ifon-Osun. Awolu FC and 3SC had the cracking encounter that ended in 2:1 in favour of the 3SC football club.
Speaking at the event, APC candidate said the programme, which is a form of empowerment for the youths in the federal constituency, is “just a tip of the iceberg” as she is prepared to have more and more for the young people if she is elected as a member of the House of Representatives.
She said, “what I have for the youths in our federal constituency are more than this. We have several programmes and plans for them. I’m a believer in the youth. All I just need from them is to vote for me and our party on February 25 and they will see the difference.”
Speaking further, Ogo-Oluwa described the recent victory of former Governor Adegboyega Oyetola at the tribunal as a morale booster for the APC, stating that she believes the APC will bounce back and become a ruling party in Osun.
“It (Tribunal judgement) is a morale booster for us. We believe so much that APC is still the Party to beat and by the grace of God, we shall emerge victorious at the upper courts. Governor Adegboyega Oyetola is coming back.”
Speaking shortly after final encounter, leaders of the APC in the constituency, Adeoye Adelakun, Akintunde Adegboye and Kamil Oyedele all praised the candidate of their party for the contest. They called on electorates to vote APC on February 25 in order to have more dividends of representation.
