Members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Odo-Otin South Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Inisa have been charged to continue to canvass support for the party, with a view to retaining its relevant status in the area.
The charge was given by leaders of the party during the party’s general meeting at the LCDA, held last Thursday.
Speaking at the meeting, the APC chairman in Odo-Otin, Alhaji Aasa Jimoh said part of the ways to intensify support for the party was to educate the sympathizers to obtain their permanent Voters Card (PVC) before the registration closes.
This, according to him, would give them the leverage to elect their favourable candidates who are committed to the ideal of progressivism and in turn get more dividends of democracy.
He said, “As a politician and at the same time an electorate, the only power you have to decide who govern is voters’ card. Therefore, those who have still not registered as a voter should do so, for us to be able to use our votes to retain the development we have been witnessing under the APC government”, he said.
The Executive Secretary of the council, Honourable Rasak Adeyemi commended members and sympathizers of the APC for their steadfastness, even in the face of economic recession, saying that the present government has shown commitment to development.
He said the creation of Odo-Otin South LCDA and other additional councils in the state has created platform for more development at the grassroot levels, urging the people to support the gesture of the government by paying their dues and levies promptly.
The APC leader in the council, Comrade Poju Odusola called for unity of purpose among party members in the council area, saying, it is only in unison that the desired benefits could come.
Just like other speaker, he commended the Governor of the State of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola for his efforts towards ensuring the development of the state.
Meanwhile, the party Chairman congratulated the former Governor of the State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola for his new appointment as the Chairman, National Identity Management Commission (NIMC).
