Residents of Oke-Ogun community in Abeokuta North Local Government Area of Ogun State have appealed to Governor Dapo Abiodun to select one Joseph Alabi Akande as the Deputy-Chairmanship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the forthcoming LG polls.
The residents in an appeal letter written to the Governor and signed by no fewer than 28 APC leaders in the Oke-Ogun community urged Gov. Abiodun to zone the Deputy Chairmanship slot to the axis.
The community in the letter identified Akande as a known aspirant that came from Ward 14 of default Old Imala district council area of the community.

“In the interest of Justice and equity, the list should be given to Oke-Ogun, moreso, it should be given to the chairmanship aspirant that comes from Oke-Ogun community; especially Hon. Joseph Alabi Akande ward 14 of d Imala District Council.
