I'm back to support Abiodun actualise his governorship dream - Oladunjoye

Barely three months after announcing  his quitting of politics following an alleged threat to life at the time and which against his conscience, compelled him to move a motion for the adoption of Governor Ibikunle Amosun's man, Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade, as a consensus governorship candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State, Ambassador Tunde Oladunjoye, has announced his return to the political and Democratic space.

Oladunjoye, a former Chairman of Ijebu East Local Government Area of the state, said he elected to return, this time, to support the gubernatorial candidate of the APC, Prince Dapo Abiodun, actualise his dream of becoming the next governor in 2019.

The Human rights activist and media practitioner who made this known in a release on Saturday, stated that his latest decision followed a critical re- examination of the earlier position, coupled with pressure on him by people.

He stated: "Since I took a sabbatical from sectarian politics about three months ago, there have been contacts and communications, messages and questions from friends, well wishers, followers,  and of course, as expected, sneers from foes alike.

"For me,  it was an opportunity for self-assessment and a review of one’s participation in the democratic processes, the past upheavals, the present challenges and future goals. I was happy I really did. 

"I was approached by different political parties and I actually held physical meetings and  telephone discussions with some. My friends, senior comrades, supporters and politicians not only expressed solidarity, but also their positions/views on my personal decision. 

"While some were happy with my decision, majority positioned that it was premature to call it quit totally and to  permanently abstain.

"I became persuaded that it will be a disservice in the long run to abandon the political space to those who were not part of the hard struggle for the attainment of the present democratic dispensation for which comrades paid huge sacrifices and some were actually martyred. 

"After due consideration, and with the latest development in Ogun State Branch of All Progressives Congress (APC), I have decided to pitch my camp with people of like minds and to cast my lot for Prince (Dr.) Dapo Abiodun MFR. 

"It is my entitled view that, all factors considered, “DA” as he is fondly called, is the best among those presently gunning for the seat of governor of  Ogun State, and has the indisputable and verifiable capacity, ingenuity, network,  local and international connectivity to take Ogun State to the next level."

He expressed to his friends, supporters, followers, wife and children for their understanding, unconditional love and unrelenting support.
