“I want to promise you today that before I come here next, this road would almost have been completed.”

“We have seen that our party, the APC is the only party here, we could have decided against coming here for this event because we know Imeko-Afon belongs to us, but, our coming here has given us the opportunity to see the state of road here.
“On the 24th of July, two weeks and two days from now, I want you to go out en-masse and vote, even though, we know that Imeko-Afon and Yewa belong to us, I want you to come out to vote and let them know through your votes that Imeko-Afon and Yewa truly belong to us, let us all come out and vote in Yahya Fadipe and Gabriel,” the governor submitted.
