Electorate Will decide your fate on March 2nd, Akinlade's kinsman tells him


Ayobami Ife, Abeokuta

Olukayode Idowu, an opinion leader and kinsman of the governorship candidate of the Allied People's Movement (APM), Hon. Abdulkabir Akinlade, has lamented the alleged poor representation of Yewa South and Ipokia Federal constituency by him(Akinlade) since becoming a member of the House of Representatives.
Akinlade who is still serving at the House of Representatives is the governorship candidate of Allied People's Movement (APM) in the forthcoming governorship election.

But Idowu who is the candidate of the Social Democratic Party(SDP) for Yewa South/ Ipokia  Federal constituency, alleged  that Akinlade's performance as a lawmaker in the last three years and eight months, was quite poor.

The SDP candidate made this known yesterday while addressing reporters in Ilaro, Headquarters of Yewa South Local Government Area of Ogun state, stressing that the APM gubernatorial hopeful ought to have focused more on quality representation of his people at the National Assembly, and hinted that it was not advisable to seek a higher office which the governorship seat represents if one has not done well as a lawmaker. 

According to him, yewaland is the least developed part of state and require  massive infrastructure development to change the narrative and open the area to attract investors.

He rued that the last time Yewaland  witnessed and enjoyed good roads was during the administration of Chief Olusegun Osoba, wondering why Governor Ibikunle Amosun decided to abandon the zone. 

He, however, assured that the "truly disappointed" people of Yewa South and Ipokia Federal Constituency nay  Ogun West would  "decide his(Akinlade's) fate at the polls on March 2nd."

He said: "Akinlade should focus more on why he  is elected(member of the House of Representatives) because as a young man I expected him to have done very well in terms of roads development because like I said, if I am elected I will ensure that I fight to make all federal roads in Yewa South and Ipokia are constructed and as well as do youths empowerment programmes.

" I am disappointed in all of them (past and present representatives). They have failed us. They have not done anything for the constituency. All our roads are bad, without good roads, no investors will come in and invest. "

" We need good roads and developmental projects to open our area to the world. The road we are enjoying today was constructed by Chief Olusegun Osoba. I don't know why  the Governor has not done anything in Yewa.

"From my research none of these has been done and that is why I am asking myself what people who have gone to the national assembly have done on this vicinity?

"Just like I said I am truly disappointed but I believe the electorate will decides his fate at the polls on March 2nd. 

"Credits to the governor even if he neglected Ogun west, he has done a lot for his people in Egba most especially Abeokuta. In fact, constructions are still going on even when he his just counting weeks in office."

The House of Representatives  hopeful said he would facilitate railway transport system to his constituency to reduce the rate at which truck and other articulated vehicles, kill residents of Ilaro  and it's environments. 

"I am embittered about the killings of my people by the cement trucks plying the Ilaro, Ibese roads, and that is why I will implore the federal government to extend the ongoing construction of the railway project to Ilaro to reduce the rate at which trucks use the roads here  and stop the killing of my people if elected," he submitted.
