In anticipation of the upcoming local government elections in Oyo State, Supervisory Councilors and Special Assistants from Atiba local government have thrown their weight behind Hon. Wahab Waliu Adetunji for Council Chairmanship and his vice, Badmus Olaide Ismail.
In a statement released to Heritage Echo News, the Council appointees expressed their endorsement based on a unanimous understanding of the democratic policy document presented by the Chairmanship candidate. They highlighted his commitment to “all-inclusive governance” for the residents of the royal council.
Hon. Rafiu Tijani, speaking on behalf of the Supervisory Councilors, emphasized that their decision was the result of careful deliberations and an examination of the candidate’s policy document, focusing on accessibility and a deep understanding of the political terrain to transform the royal council.
Tijani praised Hon. Wabkem’s impactful contributions during the last elections, noting his identification with party activities, campaign support, and effective party engagement since the return to democracy in 1999. He emphasized Wabkem’s historical significance in the Atiba and Oyo federal constituency and endorsed him as the most competent choice for the Royal Council administration based on the principles of equity, justice, and fairness.
Mr. Akeem Ayankojo, representing the Special Assistants in Atiba local government, described Wabkem as a true reflection of kindness and an expert grassroots politician. Ayankojo asserted that Wabkem was the candidate best suited to restore the lost glory of the royal Council, with widespread support from party chieftains, stakeholders, and faithful members.
