The Chairman of Allied People’s Movement (APM) in Ogun State, Chief Patrick Kehinde Oyatayo, has disclosed that the party has started mobilisation across the state in an effort to unseat the state governor, Dapo Abiodun in 2023.
The APM chairman noted that party has begun ward to ward mobilisation of loyal party members in preparation for the forthcoming Local Government election in the state.
He disclosed this on Wednesday shortly after the Strategic Meeting of APM held ahead of Local Government Election at the State Party Secretariat located at Adatan Area of Abeokuta, the State Capital.
Oyatayo stressed that the party is ready to take over governance from the present administration by 2023.
He further explained that the party is strategically mobilizing its members for the forthcoming LG election so that it can have the grip of the grassroots.
Speaking on Governor Abiodun led-administration, the APM chairman described it as sluggish and shoddy style of governance.
He said the Governor Abiodun’s style of governance in the 21st Century falls below the standards.
Oyatayo explained that Ex-Governor Ibikunle Amosun Government of APC had laid a good foundation of governance for Governor Abiodun and his Cabinet but the latter chose to jettison the governance template which is now doing a great disservice to the political growth and socio-economic development of the State.
He said, “Govenor Dapo Abiodun’s issue is laughable, because I have never seen any Governor in this State who has brought us backward like Governor Dapo Abiodun is doing. I have never seen a Governor that will be elected into Office and started the roads construction and reconstruction by reducing size and width of the roads constructed in last 40 years. That shows the mental capacity and exposure of Mr Governor and those people in his Cabinet.
“For example, the popular Elite Road in Abeokuta, the State Capital that has been constructed since 1979 by late Chief Bisi Onabanjo and Chief Sesan Soluade, now Governor Abiodun is reconstructing the road but reducing the size and width of the road, that shows that the Government is getting us backward, that was why I said that you cannot be reducing the road that has been constructed more than 40 years ago in 2020, they should ask themselves whether the vehicular traffic is increasing or reducing.”
