*I am the best Choice for APC-Moshood Adeoti
Ahead of September 22 gubernatorial election holding in Osun State, the present Secretary to the State government and one of the governorship aspirants on the platform of ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Moshood Adeoti, has described his candidature as the best for the party in the September governorship elections.
Adeoti, who hailed from Iwo Local government area of Osun West Senatorial district in the state said this at the Party’s National Secretariat in Abuja while fielding questions from journalists about the raging zoning controversy.
Describing himself as tested and trusted ,the SSG said he has all factors going for him in the race, noting that his popularity in the state is not in doubt and that zoning is also a serious factor.
“When we started in 1999, it was Baba Akande that spent four years there from Osun Central Senatorial district and when Oyinlola took over from the same Osun Central Senatorial district, it was because both of them came from different constituencies. Baba Akande came from Ila Federal constituency, Oyinlola came from Ifelodun/Boripe/ Odo-Otin local government.
“But both of them were from central. If their terms are put together, they spent eleven and half years, and the person on board, who is going to step down on the 27th of November happens to have come from Osun East Senatorial district after eight years and you still say another person from Osun Central is going to take the seat, what would then be the fate of people from the West senatorial district where I come from?”
The SSG affirmed that he is still the most qualified and popular aspirant in the state, adding nothing can stop him from winning the general election if he gets the ticket of the party.
He said, “That one put aside, you go there, go and make a pilot survey, you will find out there that people are there for us apart from what people are saying that the thing should go to the West, go and find out who is the popular candidate out of all, they will tell it is a current Secretary to the state government, in person of Alhaji Moshood Olalekan Adeoti”
