Ogbomoso Will Not Remain In Opposition: Hon. Segun Odebunmi
A member of the National Assembly Hon Segun Dokun Odebunmi has said that Ogbomoso people will not remain in the opposition party by voting massively for the ruling All Progressives Congress APC.
Hon Odebunmi, a chieftain of the party representing Surulere/Ogo Oluwa Federal constituency maintained that alligning with the ruling parry will boost development and afford the region to have quality presentation at the government .
Speaking with Journalists in Ogbomoso on Sunday, Odebumi who decamped from the Peoples Democratic Party PDP to APC said ” at the state level, we have not been accorded our rightful place in government because majority of our people vote for opposition party but if we vote massively for the ruling party we will have the power to negotiate for better position in government and demand for projects that will enhance development”
“Though we have been benefiting but if we have the tendency of enjoying more in term of infrastructural development, representation at the government and lots more.”
” Obviously we all want Ogbomoso man to be governor but our votes alone cannot produce a governor for the state , we need Ibadan, Oyo, Ibarapa and Oke Ogun, when an Ogbomoso man was governor, they all supported us and for us to enjoy that kind of support again we must use our voting strength to negotiate.
He however urge the people of Ogbomoso not to be overwhelmed by the tactics of the opposition leaders who only want to remain relevant in the system but to vote all APC Candidates in the interest of the development of Ogbomoso and Oyo at large.
Responding to question on why he is seeking re-election for third term, Hon Odebunmi who is currently the chairman National Assembly Committee on Information, National Orientation, Ethics and Value said ” my constituency stands the better chance of benefitting more as an experience legislature, apart from the fact that it qualifies me to contest for speakership position, i also stand the chance of facilitating more developmental projects, employment opportunities and progress for my constituency.
Explaining why Nigerians should give President Buhari another chance, Hon Odebumi said ” i was in PDP for 16 years what transpires, funds were released for project that were only executed on papers or not completed but the APC government has demonstrated genuine interest in moving Nigeria forward, i understand that changing the status quo have some economic implications on people but people should give APC another four years to prove their ability to change Nigeria
