Withdrawal from MHA race borne out of Ondo APC supremacy – Maxwell Adelosoye
COMMUNIQUE ISSUED AFTER A MEETING OF APC DEMOCRATIC MOVEMENT (ONDO STATE) ON THE 12TH OF MAY, 2020
APC Democratic Movement (Ondo State) is a political movement that has been in existence within Ondo State from the inception of All Progressive Congress in 2014. The movement was to support and canvas for progressive candidates within the party. It was to actualize the aims of the coming together of different political parties to form an environment where only the progressive occupy political offices in Nigeria especially the federal government.
This political movement worked tirelessly in 2016 to make sure that APC takes the Alagbaka seat of power during the gubernatorial election. The movement has it members across the eighteen local government of the State and used her strength to mobilize, canvass and vote in APC into power. The movement having observed the political atmosphere within Ondo State particularly in the ruling All progressive Congress decided to call for a meeting of the eighteen local government coordinators on the 12th of May 2020 to make deliberation and decision on the aspirant to support in the forth coming Ondo State Gubernatorial Election. The meeting gave birth to the following decisions;
1. Having looked into the antecedents of all aspirants including the incumbent governor, the movement decided to support, canvas and vote for an aspirant with no bashed antecedent and who has interested in human development in the past years.
2. The movement decided to pull her strength for the emergence of a Candidate who has experience in dealing with the public not as a politician but as a public servant who knows the needs of the masses.
3. Chief Olayide Owolabi Adelami, the Owo born public servant was later ratified and endorsed by the movement because of his unabashed antecedent in the public service. Chief Adelami rose from the level of obscurity to a place of Grace. He has served the masses for thirty five years and he attained the peak in his career. He knows the masses more, he has related with the people and this gave us assurance that the retired deputy clerk of the National Assembly can influence physical development and impact the lives of Ondo State people as he had always done within Owo, Ondo North and Ondo State at large during his service as a public servant. Adelami was part of the frontiers that ensured the reelection of President Muhammadu Buhari during the last general election. He was appointed by the presidency as the coordinator, presidential support committee, Ondo State.
The movement, however, is using this medium to inform the people of Ondo State and the general public that our total support is for Chief Olayide Owolabi Adelami.
Together, we can establish unprecedented development in the state.
