The AA governorship hopeful wondered why the NULGE should believe Abiodun recalling that , the same promises were given prior to the 2019 elections , but were not fulfilled .
According to Adeyemi it is a ploy to take NULGE and civil servants for a ride for the second time with less than eight months left in the saddle, once beaten twice shy.

He pledged not to toy with the welfare and sensibility of the State workforce and Pensioners at the expense of any White elephant project like the Olokola free trade zone in which has not yield any tangible result over the years.
Adeyemi wondered where the governor who was complaining of paucity of funds will suddenly get enough money to implement his gargantuan promises.

“Discuss with the Pensioners on the prompt payment of their entitlements and also look into the cases of those who were denied appointment as Permanent Secretaries before their retirement inspite of being eminently qualified.
” Transportation of workers to and from work will receive serious attention of the government if Action Alliance in Ogun State.”
Adeyemi reiterated that Action Alliance is a Masses oriented party emphasizing that it is time the Masses and the Civil Servants come together to ensure the enthronement of a populist government in Ogun State in order to guarantee their future and those of generation yet unborn.
