The Director of Administration to the Senate President, Hon Fadairo Oluwafemi has asked the general public to disregard the statement credited to one of the aspirants eyeing the vacant seat of the House of Representatives in Akure South and Akure North, Princess Omowumi Ohwovoriole that some of her bills board were destroyed, saying the former Commissioner is only looking for public sympathy.
It could be recalled that, Princess Omowumi has earlier called the attention of the public to the dastardly act of some faceless people destroying her bill boards but to Fada as popularly called, it is a mere art of politicking to gain cheap popularity.
Fada said if such truly happened, the act need to be condemned as it cost a fortune to erect bill boards, adding that no aspirant from the ruling All Progressive Congress will engage in the uncivilized act.
He stressed that APC members are civilised and well mannered people that won’t be involved in destroying campaign bill board. ” All the aspirants from the ruling APC are gentlemen of high integrity who have built their respective names over the years and will not because of politics destroyed their reputations”.
” Why should we fight ourselves, over what? Each and everyone of us are strategising on how to win primary, lobbying relevant stakeholders to his or her side; where is the time to start destroying bill board? Does bill board win election? It is abnormal for anybody to attack bill boards. What value will that add to the voting pattern of leaders and voters? To me, the allegation is not genuine and false that shouldn’t be taken serious”
Fada asked Princess Omowumi to mention names of people behind the alleged dastardly act, saying he has bill boards across the nook and cranny of Akure South and North and none of them has been attacked. ” Every other aspirant has bill boards, why is she the only one complaining?
He advised all the aspirants from APC to make their campaign issue based so as to garner more support from the people in the two local government areas as Akure is a PDP dominated city.
While soliciting for people’s support, Fada who described himself as a grassroot politician promise to be all inclusive if elected to fill the vacant seat of Akure South and Akure North at the House of Representatives. ” I have PDP members supporting my aspiration, they are not APC members but believe in my vision because they know my ability and capacity to deliver dividend of democracy to the people’s door steps”.
He said he has done a lot of empowerment for widows, market women, give free JAMB and WAEC forms to over 1000 students, donate Transformers, grading of roads, building of Toilets among others, assuring the people of more if elected into the lower chamber.
” Some of the aspirants in the race are emergency aspirants banking on death of Hon Adedayo Omolafe to contest. My aspiration has been on for a long time and I even say it to “Expensive” then that I will relieve him of his duty as a federal lawmaker; so I am more prepared and qualified to represent the good people of Akure South and North Federal Constituency”.
