Oke-Ogun, according to him for almost 30 years now has not produced a Chairman of the local government, neither has it produced Commissioner or any State appointment, not to talk of Federal appointment.
Adejumo (Motun) said, “There are four communities in Abeokuta North Local Government area. They are: Owu Community, Gbagura Community, Oke-Ona Community and Oke-Ogun Community out of all these four Communities, Oke-Ogun Community has been seriously shortchanged in the past.”

But he promised to break the jinx and allow for equal and quality representation if elected as the Chairman of the Local government area.
