Ahead of the bye-election in Akoko North East/ North West federal constituency in Ondo state, a chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC) and aspirant in the race, Hon Muyiwa Asagunla has stepped down his aspiration and endorsed Ife Ehindero, as the party candidate for the election.
Confirming his decision to withdraw from the race after a stakeholders meeting in Akoko North where the leaders of the party unanimously endorsed Ehindero, Asagunla said the party position remains supreme over individual personal interest.
The former SSA on youth and student affairs to the late Dr Olusegun Agagu promised to mobilise support for the victory of the party’s candidate in both primary and the general elections.
He described Ehindero as a young politician who has the capacity to represent the people of the federal constituency in Abuja and give quality representation to the people of the federal constituency.
The leaders of the party in the two local governments hailed Asagunla for abiding by the decision of the stakeholders.
Responding, Ehindero appreciated all the stakeholders at the meeting and promised not to disappoint them for the confidence reposed in him by the party leadership.
He promised that effective and quality representation would be his watchword if eventually got the people’s votes and won the primary and general election.
Ehindero said he would improve on grassroots democracy and see to the emergence of laws that would bring Akoko North West/East federal constituency and Ondo State to a more positive limelight upon winning the election.
“I am eminently qualified. I am widely accepted and well-loved by the people for various reasons. I have been unflinchingly loyal to the party in spite of my past experience in the politics of the party.
” I am neither an impromptu nor opportunistic aspirant. I am vastly experienced in management, diplomacy and organisational leadership. I am well exposed internationally and above all, I am a responsible person. I am ready to bring my wealth of experience into politics to bring more dividends of democracy to our people.”
He urged the people of the constituency to give priority to quality representation, dynamic and vibrant politicians who can make a difference and contribute to the development of Akoko communities.
Some chieftains of the party at the meeting include Akoko North West Local government chairman Hon. Ayodele Akande, the chairman of ward 3, Akeju Ojo Francis, Chairman ward 4, Amubieya Emmanuel Adeniyi and other party leaders.
