As political atmosphere in Osun State is getting thicker, mobilization for candidates of choice has commenced within political parties. This informed a meeting with People’s Democratic Party executives across all wards in Ede Federal Constituency hosted by Hon. Ayodele David Asalu.
The programme, held at the country home of Late Senator Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke, coincides with training and empowerment facilitated by Hon. Asalu for farmers across all local governments.
The training and empowerment, which was done in partnership with Nigerian Agricultural Quarantine Service, was aimed at boosting businesses and to ensure food security in Osun State and Nigeria at large.
No fewer than 200 persons were trained and given grants during the programme.
Speaking with our correspondent, Asalu emphasized on the needs to ensure economy of people at the grassroots is improved, stating that the current administration at the federal level has made things so tight for Nigerians.
Speaking on chances of Senator Ademola Adeleke, Asalu said, “the problems created by present administration are enormous and these are what Senator Ademola Adeleke is coming to correct. Look at the local government structure alone, it has been collapsed. A Chairman that will be six months in few days can’t point to any achievement in his name.
“We know how it was during the PDP era. Local Government was vibrant and fully autonomous. By 2022, Ademola Adeleke will be our Governor and a performing Governor at that,” Asalu said.
In his contribution, a former State lawmaker, George Alabi, commended Asalu for always having people of th federal constituency at heart, even while holding no political appointment.
Also, the women leader for Ede North local government, while speaking with Insight links crew,analyses how the PDP party has favoured both men and women, youths and adult of the state of Osun in terms of giving grants and empowerment, she added that these good works cannot be overlooked but has surely boost the integrity of Snr Ademola Adeleke as the right governor for Osun state and Hon. Ashley as the right candidate to represent in the national assembly.
Mr Sangolade Kehinde, one of the beneficiaries from Ejigbo local government expressed his appreciation to Asalu. He explained how empowerment and grants facilitated by members of the PDP have transform lives of many individuals in the constituency.
“I really appreciate the gesture of Hon. Asalu. This will surely help my business. Empowerment by members of PDP have helped my people in Osun State to achieve their dreams. I’m happy for what I got here today.”
