Ondo 2024: Omoluabi Group backs Kekemeke

The Ondo State chapter of the Omoluabi Team Alliance, a social cultural group has on Wednesday 17th April, 2024 thrown their weight behind the candidacy of Hon. D.I. Kekemeke to clinch the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the all important and fast approaching primary election billed to hold on Saturday 20th April, 2024.

In a short but coincise speech delivered by their President, Omoluabi Dr. Jaiyeola Afolabi. He said, that their decisions to endorse Hon. Kekemeke to be the next Governor of Ondo State is born out of a strong conviction that he is the most qualified out of the whole lots that are seeking the numero uno political seat in the state.

In his words, “we could have gone to cash out like others have done but we have decided to support you to be governor ahead of others after a careful perusal of your programs as contained in your policy document”

He further reiterated that “your programs on education where you have highlighted your resolve to institute a free and compulsory primary education, free secondary school and highly subsidized tertiary education are for me, superb and will be a great disservice to our state if not supported to come to fruition.

Your programs on agriculture where you have also talked about the concept of civil farmers is not only brilliant but also unprecedented and we believe that it will turn around the fortunes of our State as clusters of jobs will no doubt be created through such ideas and our teeming youths will be productively engaged.

The Ondo State co-ordinator of the group Omoluabi Engr. Aluko after adopting the speech of the President presented the group’s cloak which is a symbol of membership of the group to Honourable D.I. Kekemeke as a mark of honour.

Hon. Isaacs Kekemeke in his reaction expressed satisfaction with the conduct of the group for living up to the meaning of the name of their association and for not joining others who have seemingly offered themselves as chattels to be purchased by the moneybag politicians thereby falling for their political chicanery.

The former Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice in Ondo State was full of praise for the leadership of the group whom he recalled visited him before and on that occasion he had taken time to fully discuss his programs with them. In his words, “I am elated to know that you took time to go through my programs and you’ve conscientiously taken a wise decision in the interest of the good of our State.

The former Secretary to the government of Ondo State, Hon. Kekemeke thereafter took time to highlight his programs on education, agriculture, industrialization and tourism to the group and advised them to shun any form of financial inducements that could further throw our state into persistent maladministration and stunted economic development.

The Secretary of the strategic committee of the Lekeleke Movement, Engr. Kola Kuye in his vote of thanks, expressed gratitude to the visiting Omoluabi Team Alliance for endorsing Hon. D.I. Kekemeke to be the next Governor of our dear state and said that it is a decision taken in the right direction.

He thanked them for the visitation and encouraged them to stick by the noble decision they have taken.
