The Olu of Owode, Oba Kolawole Sowemimo said all Egba Obas, led by the Alake and Paramount Ruler, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, have resolved to stand with Gov Ibikunle Amosun in his drive to ensure the continuity of the rebuilding mission.

Oba Sowemimo made this known while speaking at the official commissioning of APM campaign office as well as the inauguration of its 2019 campaign committee members today at Leme Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

The monarch, who graced the occasion in company with four other Egba Obas said Ogun State deserved the same continuity Lagos State had been enjoying since 1999.

He added that continuity was the only reason why Lagos State is progressing, adding that it should begin with Amosun, handing over to Adekunle Akinlade of the APM in May 2019.

Speaking further, Oba Sowemimo emphasised that “we Egba Oba’s and indigenes are solidly behind Amosun. We are going to support Akinlade to ensure the continuity of the Mission to Rebuild Ogun State and to make sure Ogun West produce the next Governor of the state for the first time since 42 years ago.”

Earlier, the Director General of APM campaign council, Sharafa Tunji Ishola, said Egbas will fight for Ogun West in putting an end to marginalisation and injustice.

Ishola informed that Ogun APM is a party to fight the injustice meted out to members of the APC in the state in the last party primaries.

He enjoined all party members inaugurated into the various committees to work diligently for the success of the party and its candidates in 2019; urging them to see their appointment as another opportunity to prove their worth as politicians and leaders of their people.
